Watchmen Artist Dave Gibbons Collaborating on New Adventure Game
Say what you want about the movie adaptation, the original Watchman comic is a masterpiece, thanks in no small part to the efforts of artist Dave Gibbons. Gibbons has dabbled in the video game business in the past, but he now intends to dive in with gusto, teaming up with developers Revolution Software on an as-yet unannounced adventure game.
Revolution has been working in the genre since 1990, earning renown for titles such as Beneath a Steel Sky (see a review of the free GOG version by Game Front contributor Jim Sterling) and the Broken Sword series. According to Eurogamer, Gibbons promises to be involved in the new project “from the ground up.” Given the studio’s track-record of well-written, visually striking titles, there’s plenty of potential.
