Neil Gaiman Announces His First Video Game, Wayward Manor

about

Critically-acclaimed, best-selling author Neil Gaiman (“The Ocean at the End of the Lane,” “The Sandman” series of graphic novels, “American Gods,” “The Graveyard Book” and “Coraline”) today announced the launch of his first-ever video game, Wayward Manor. Set in a 1920s Victorian Gothic pastoral estate, Wayward Manor players unravel the mystery of a ghost (player) seeking a peaceful after-life. After a remarkable cast of characters moves into Wayward Manor and wakes him from his post-mortem slumbers, the ghost must find ever-more inventive and brilliant ways to scare them away. As the ghost learns more about the living characters, he also learns more about his own death and after-life, and the danger they are all facing. Wayward Manor will be available just in time for the holidays on PC, Mac, and tablets.

13747910379

“For quite a while there’s been a story that I’ve wanted to tell, something inspired by the kinds of films that I loved when I was a kid,” said Gaiman. “But I kept running into the same problem: it didn’t really feel like a novel. It felt like something that you would have to experience yourself. So today, I’m proud to announce my first-ever game, Wayward Manor.”

Wayward Manor is being developed by The Odd Gentleman (The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom), an award-winning independent video game studio, in conjunction with Moonshark, a game publisher co-founded by Creative Artists Agency (CAA). The release is supported by a unique, exclusive presale campaign, offering rewards for fans including limited-edition merchandise, the opportunity to name a game character, and even a private dinner with Gaiman, among others. Presale orders are now being accepted at www.WhoHauntsNeil.com.

hr_The_LEGO_Movie_3

The LEGO Group today announced that it will produce a collection of movie-inspired building sets celebrating the brand’s premiere as a theatrical film. The company has recruited an impressive roster of global partners to a broad, multi-category licensing program to support the much anticipated animated adventure film from Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures. Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller and produced by Dan Lin and Roy Lee, “The LEGO Movie” is rapidly building buzz following its first released trailer and assembles on the big screen starting in February 2014.

Building Sets

Inspired by pivotal scenes in the film and starring key LEGO minifigure characters, a collection of 17 LEGO building sets will deliver all of the “The LEGO Movie” action to the playroom. Fans will delight in highly detailed and functional vehicles and structures that reflect the creative versatility of the movie’s many LEGO themed backdrops, such as City, Wild West, and Space. Comic-Con International attendees in San Diego, California will see the first “The LEGO Movie” building set unveiled at the LEGO booth (#2829) on Saturday, July 20.

Additionally, the company’s line of collectible LEGO Minifigures will receive its first Hollywood makeover with a series inspired by “The LEGO Movie” cast of 16 new and “new-again” LEGO characters.

Videogame

In related news, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced that the chart-topping and award-winning LEGO videogames franchise from TT Games will include an epic gaming experience based on the film across all major console and handheld gaming systems. With more than 90 playable characters inspired by the film and 15 exciting levels, kids will be able to build an adventure like never before.

Movie-Inspired Merchandise

A roster of global licensees covering several categories will immerse filmgoers in the world of “THE LEGO MOVIE.” Perennial publishing partners Scholastic, Penguin, Ameet and DK Publishing will offer a range of readers, sticker books, activity books and movie guides. Apparel partners include T-shirts from Mad Engine, Isaac Morris, Kabooki, TV Mania and Casco Blu, hoodies from TV Mania, pajamas from SGI Apparel, TV Mania and Kabooki and undergarments from Handcraft Mfg. and Kabooki.

The LEGO Movie

The LEGO Movie opens in some global markets the first week of February, 2014. The 3D computer animated adventure tells the story of Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

The LEGO Movie stars Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie and Charlie Day, with Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman, as the voices of the animated characters. The film is directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller (“21 Jump Street,” “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”) from their original screenplay, story by Dan Hageman, Kevin Hageman, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, based on LEGO construction toys. It will incorporate some of the LEGO world’s most popular figures while introducing several new characters, inviting fans who have enjoyed the brand’s innovative toys and hugely popular video games for generations to experience their visually unique LEGO world as never seen before. The film is produced by Dan Lin (“Sherlock Holmes,” “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”) and Roy Lee (“The Departed,” “How to Train Your Dragon”).  “The LEGO Movie” will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures.
