Hound Comics’ Project Coordinator, Etan Wish officially announced that the initial application derived from their hit comic book series Brimstone and The Borderhounds would make its debut at Wizard World’s Philadelphia convention in June. “We are very excited to enter into another new medium with our flagship brand. We are anticipating that this will open the door for numerous endeavors concerning the gaming industry!” says, Wish. The application comes prior to the highly anticipated console version dubbed, “Brimstone and The Borderhounds: The Video Game” set for release on the Xbox LIVE and Playstation Network later this year. “We feel that in this age of technology, it is imperative to keep up with the competition. Apple mobile platform owners will now finally have the opportunity to play as their favorite Borderhound characters while on the go!” says CEO, William ‘Brimstone’ Kucmierowski.
Brimstone and The Borderhounds: Forza Infernis will be a 3D Fighting Game that allows the player to choose from eight different characters. Hound Comics will be offering an exclusive code at Wizard World’s Philadelphia Convention that will unlock a surprise playable character. While supplies last, fans attending the pop culture convention can stop by the Hound booth and receive a redeemable card with an exclusive code to unlock the hidden character. The game will include a handful of fan favorites from the Hound Universe including Brimstone and Luscious. “It’s exciting to see these comic book heroes come to life… The Brimstone and The Borderhounds characters will certainly add a new dimension to the fighting game genre.” Says Patrick J. Barrett III, President of Star Gaming Network.
The Forza Infernis game will be available for download on the iPad, iPhone and iTouch and will boast theme music and background loops from rock band Zo2. This is the initial release in Hound’s upcoming video game library per their agreement with Star Gaming Network. Fans looking to celebrate the launch with Hound Comics and pick-up their special code should join Brimstone who will be making a celebrity appearance on June 17 – 19 along with M.H. Carnevali and Luscious at the Pennsylvania Convention Center located at 1101 Arch Street, Philadelphia PA 19107.
