Robot Chicken Writer Making Comedy Series Using Age of Conan
Age of Conan was one of those MMOs you thought just couldn’t fail. After all, the Conan universe is popular, and it seemed the perfect setting for a fantasy MMORPG. Unfortunately, the game didn’t fare so well upon release. It’s improved since then, and now we’ve got some news that may bring a lot of attention to Funcom’s title.
It seems that Robot Chicken writer Mike Fasalo is producing a web comedy series set in the world of Hyboria, and that it will be created using the characters, locations and engine from Age of Conan. The series will also feature the voices of comedian Harland Williams (Dumb and Dumber, Half Baked) and Dan Milano (Greg the Bunny, Robot Chicken).
Behind the whole thing is Paradox Entertainment, who has a hand in the upcoming Conan the Barbarian feature film that slated to be released in August. No word yet on when these web episodes will be released, as this press release was simply announcing that the series was in production.
