Big Trouble In Little China The Game

They told you to go to hell… and that’s just where you’re going… Play as Jack Burton or one of his brave friends, on the mysterious quest to rescue the green-eyed beauty, defeat Lo Pan’s ancient magic, and save Chinatown from his evil minions… in Big Trouble in Little China the Game!

There is a secret world where ancient evil weaves a modern mystery… they call it Little China. It’s where Big Trouble was waiting for Jack Burton and his friends as they uncover an ancient diabolical plot. The evil minions of the immortal ghost-sorcerer Lo Pan are waiting to chop down the players with axes and guns in dark alleys and all throughout the battle-torn streets of Chinatown. Now, Jack, Wang, Gracie, and the rest of the gang must muster up all of their courage, survive against hordes of baddies, and then face off in a showdown with the darkest demon of them all Lo Pan!

Big Trouble in Little China the Game sends you and up to five other players on a wild adventure to experience the unknown and mystical underworld of Chinatown. Each brave character uses their own unique talents and abilities to take on various missions throughout Little China; working together to gain enough Audacity to take down Lo Pan, the Three Storms, and a slew of other powerful henchmen, in this cooperative, replayable, cinematic experience.

You will venture through the iconic locations in Chinatown saving the helpless and thwarting evil plans, all the while discovering weapons and rare magics to use to your benefit. Player actions are powered by thematic dice that are rolled each round. These dice will be used to take part in combat, gamble for riches, and get players in and out of “Big Trouble.” But beware: roll bad luck and suffer the consequences!

The clock’s ticking as Lo Pan inches closer to breaking the curse and regaining his mortal form. The heroes are thrown into a final showdown with Lo Pan and his most elite bodyguards to finally put an end to his reign of terror. You’ll need all of your guts and glory to rescue the green eyed beauty, defeat ancient magic, and save Chinatown… in Big Trouble in Little the Game!

Gabriel Rodriguez Launching New Creator-Owned Comic Sword of Ages

IDW Publishing has been proud to publish award-winning artist Gabriel Rodriguez’s work over the years, and it is with great honor and excitement to announce that he will be launching his first creator-owned series as writer and artist, Sword of Ages, in October.

Rodriguez’s history with IDW is nearly as long as the company’s comic-publishing history itself; he broke into American comics as the artist on multiple CSI miniseries, and moved from movie adaptations such as Land of the Dead and Beowulf to an extended adaptation of Clive Barker’s epic novel, The Great and Secret Show. But it was work on the award-winning Locke & Key, co-created by Joe Hill, that really vaulted Rodriguez into the artistic stratosphere.

Rodriguez then followed the initial conclusion of Locke & Key with the Eisner award-winning miniseries Little Nemo: Return to Slumberland with co-creator Eric Shanower; Onyx with co-creator Chris Ryall; and last year’s Tales from the Darkside, again pairing Rodriguez with Joe Hill.

Sword of Ages will mark Rodriguez’s comic book debut as the sole creator on a series. He’ll be joined on the title, planned as a series of miniseries, by acclaimed colorist Lovern Kindzierski.

“I’ve been daydreaming about this world, these characters, and this tale for over two years. It’s admittedly daunting to fully write and draw a story of my own for the first time,” said Rodriguez. “It’s both an incredible opportunity and a tremendous responsibility so you want to try your best to make it right. Therefore, I’m pouring everything I love about comics into it; mythology, adventures, and appealing human stories. From the myths of Hercules, Gilgamesh, and King Arthur to stories from Bradbury, Moorcock, Foster, and Jodorowsky/Moebius, I want to make this my love letter to fantasy/sci-fi adventures. To have the chance to finally do this story with my friends from IDW Publishing, teaming with my longtime friend and editor Chris Ryall, and collaborating with coloring artist legend Lovern Kindzierski is beyond my wildest dreams as I would never dare to dream an opportunity as amazing as this exists.”

Sword of Ages presents an all-new vision of the Excalibur myth in the form of an epic, 5-issue space fantasy. The everlasting legend of the Sacred Sword is born through young warrior Avalon’s brutal clashes with rising tyrants in a world of fantastic creatures, ancient civilizations, alien forces, and true magic.

“I’ve been Gabriel’s editor for over a decade now, as well as his creative partner on a couple of his series,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer, “so I’ve been lucky enough to have a first-hand view of Gabriel’s amazing progression as an artist over the years. Gabriel’s long been a valued member of IDW’s family and it’s a thrill to see him come into his own as a writer and world-builder as well as one of the most diligent and talented artists working in comics.”

Sword of Ages will be released this October!
