Live from the Montreal International Game Summit, Lateef Martin of Miscellaneum Studios talks about the video game Z’Isle, inspired by a zombie apocalypse comic book series.
Miscellaneum Studios presents Z’Isle, a game based on the reconstruction of a city where the player controls a group of survivors who must reconquer the Island of Montreal following a zombie apocalypse.
Before it became a game, the world of Z’Isle originated in a comic book series of the same name. In an interview, Miscellaneum Studios founder explains how the transposition of the Z’Isle universe to a video game will allow them to reach new audiences:
“My company is a transmedia company. We don’t just do games. We want to make sure we can reach huge numbers of players through many different portals.”
– Lateef Martin, creative director and founder
To watch the interview:
Z’Isle should be available in 2017, early 2018. In the meantime, visit the Z’Isle Facebook page for the latest news and progress reports.
