Titmouse Games has signed a partnership with Kevin Eastman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator and Editor/Publisher of Heavy Metal Magazine, to create a variety of games based on the publication's most popular properties. Heavy Metal is a long running illustrated fantasy magazine and is best known for debuting some of today's most edgy graphic artists.
The first project is a sci-fi action title, "Fistful of Blood," an over-the-top action game about an Alien Bounty Huntress who comes to earth in search of the creature that killed her father, only to find herself caught in a blood feud between rival gangs of Vampires and Zombies. Created by Eastman and longtime collaborator and world-renowned illustrator Simon Bisley (Judge Dredd, Batman, Lobo), FOB was originally serialized in Heavy Metal Magazine before the hardcover collection broke HM sales records in the state and sold additional versions in France, Spain, Italy, Germany, and Poland.
"As demented as it is, I owe a lot of who I am to the wide body of work that both Kevin Eastman and Heavy Metal Magazine have exposed me to," says Aaron Habibipour, Creative Director for Titmouse Games. "Kevin and I have worked together in the past, and it was a blast. We want to start Titmouse Games off right, and I can't think of a better way than to pack enough aliens, zombies, vampires, guns, blood, gore, vengeance, and sexy chicks in a game to take down a stampeding elephant."
"Having been a lifelong fan of Heavy Metal Magazine I always thought the coolest part was the wide variety of stories that were published in every issue," adds Kevin, "And the chance to work with Titmouse gives Simon and I the chance to bring our Heavy Metal inspired visions to a much wider group of rabid fans!"
