Pretty much since the day it came out people have been begging us for more Lookouts stuff. It is without a doubt the most popular side project we have ever created. Fans have been begging for more comics, toys, and especially a tabletop RPG. Meanwhile Tycho and I have been secretly working behind the scenes to make all this stuff happen.
I am beyond proud to announce that we have partnered with Cryptozoic Entertainment to deliver a deluxe hybrid role playing and board game experience. You and your friends will be able to customize your very own Lookouts characters. You’ll jump into the magical Eyrewood, with all of its challenges, traps, monsters and characters. Each player will gain abilities and skills based on the merit badges they earn, becoming more powerful as they cross difficult terrain, face menacing creatures and encounter other hardships. Tycho and I have played this game and we begged them not to take the prototype back home with them.
Before the game hits, we will be wetting your appetites with even more Lookouts stories though. This fall we will be launching a digital Lookouts comic book! Follow along as the Lookouts go on adventures, learning the ways of the Eyrewood forest and how to live alongside it and then create your own adventures when the game launches early next year!
I’ve known Cory, the president of Cryptozoic for a long time now. I’ve been able to do a lot of cool artwork for the World of Warcraft TCG and I even did a mural for their new offices. When the first Lookouts comic came out Cory contacted me within hours to tell me how much he loved the idea. I knew when we created the Lookouts that they were bigger than we could handle on our own. Now, thanks to Cryptozoic we can finally give the Lookouts the treatment they deserve.
