We’re excited to announce Graphic Artist Dave Thomson has joined our team to create the graphic novel!!!
'As a fan of adventure games and science fiction, I'm really proud to be working on a project as exciting as this. I hope to create some fantastic work with Totem Play and help them realise their vision for the Phoenix Project.'
Dave has drawn comics for Strip, Futurequake, Zarjaz, Stoner and New British Comics among others. He is very fond of Sci-fi and when not drawing comics he plays videogames. He weeps softly for Lucasarts.
Take a look at some of his work on deviantART http://nineself.deviantart.com
Some more exciting news! Daniel Whiston has signed up to write the back story for the Phoenix Project! He’ll be working with Dave to create the intricate story of the first participants. We’re really excited by this development, to have a professional script writer on board will add depth and really bring our story to life!
“All seems cushty in a sparkly 24th Century made up of luxurious, decadent Mega Cities where most people seem to have everything they want… except for the growing numbers who slip through the cracks, and would risk everything for a life beyond the City limits. In steps The Phoenix Project, whose offer of escape and freedom to the sewer-dwelling masses is a cruel cover for using human beings as expendable lab rats, who’ll be pushed to the limit in the maze-like Temple Dome as part of a secret plan to see whether mankind still has a future. Dystopian, hi-tech future? Deadly conspiracy? Desperate masses, yearning to be free? There’s a great story here waiting to be told – so let’s get going!”
Daniel Whiston is a digital scriptwriter who has been writing and designing online narrative products for 15 years. Interesting stuff has included televisual interactive learning resources for the BBC, and games for clients like PIXELearning and Complete Control. Daniel is also a comics scriptwriter for titles such as Futurequake, Doghouse and Zarjaz, and his Neroy Sphinx character has appeared in the Judge Dredd Megazine and is to be featured in a graphic novel collection scheduled for release later this year.
You know that they are looking for human test subjects, you know that you’ll need to sign a contract that forbids disclosure to anyone, you also know that you’ll be transported to a ‘secret location’ but beyond that it is a mystery. Who are ‘they’ that work for the Phoenix Project and what is their purpose?
