Some tales are told that every gamer can instantly identify with, and now you can keep the tale alive with Zombie Orpheus Entertainment's latest Kickstarter!
Both The Gamers and The Gamers: Dorkness Rising are full of moments that make you guffaw (or groan as you say, "Oh man, I've been there!") as the antics of Cass, Gary, Lodge, Joanna, and Leo play out on the small screen. We've watched these in-game and out-of-game characters grow as much as a pile of dead bards, and at the end of Dorkness Rising, we all wanted to know what would happen next. Now you have a chance to get that question answered with Zombie Orpheus's latest Kickstarter, The Gamers: Hands of Fate! This latest tale takes the merry crew to the Best Four Days in Gaming—that's right, they're headed to GenCon! There, they see if they can handle the full convention experience, and step outside of the realm of roleplaying games into the world of collectible card game tournaments! Besides getting an excellent tale of game geekery, as with other Kickstarters, you'll get awesome rewards for your pledge level! Besides the movie, you'll have a chance to snag a copy of of the screenplay, poster art by Wayne Reynolds, a miniature of the infamous Shadow, or a copy of that villain's demense, The Shadow's Dungeon (a lair crafted by our own Sean Reynolds, who had a cameo in Dorkness Rising)!
Mere days are left to fund the third Gamers movie, Hands of Fate—get in now and get awesome rewards for backing a Kickstarter that will give not just you a couple of hours of enjoyment, but enjoyment for the entire community! Check out all of the releases from Zombie Orpheus right here!
I still remember watching Dorkness Rising on Netflix. It ended up being one of my favorite independent films.
Even if you don't have much to spare or didn't like the movie as much as I did, I would still recommend at least giving a dollar to help out with people who care about our hobby enough to make a true movie out of it.
