Tudyk and Fillion are Coming to a Mobile Device Near You!
Lords of the geek community, Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion, announced the release of their long-awaited mobile game Con Man: The Game today. The game, which is a follow on from their Comic-Con HQ web series Con Man, allows players to create and run their own virtual convention.
The pair astounded the crowdfunding community back in April 2015 when the Con Man web series gained $3.2 million in backing from 46,000+ fans in a month. The campaign was only asking for $425,000! The Indiegogo campaign became the third highest crowdfunded film on any platform and highest crowdfunded web series in history. The mobile game was the $3 million stretch goal on the campaign.
“I’m addicted. I should be clear, to Con Man: The Game. We’ve been working on this since the crowdfunding campaign. I’m so glad we can finally share it with everyone.”
Con Man: The Game is free to play and comes with a whole host of great features which really allow you to "go to town" with creating your own virtual convention. Players are able to choose between which kind of convention they would like to run, either sci-fi, horror or superheroes, unlock a lot of other celebrities who have given their time to appear in the web series. You could come across writer and director Kevin Smith, or geek-Queen Felicia Day. Even Eliza Dushku makes an appearance in the game. As well as running your convention, you have to keep an eye open for aliens who are invading and are planning on taking over the show!
