Back in late January, a trailer caught my eye for a game called Glorkian Warrior: The Trials of Glork, an upcoming iOS project that blended the comic stylings of James Kochalka with the video game chops of Pixeljam Games. Not only was it a mashup of two creative entities, but it was also a mashup of gaming genres, with traditional platforming gameplay mixed in with Galaga-style shoot ’em up action. Based on this trailer, it looks like a match made in heaven.
Well, if you’re excited for Glorkain Warrior like I am, you’ll be happy to know that the game has managed its way through the Apple approval process and is set to launch next week on March 13th. In addition to the game, James Kochalka has created a Glorkian Warrior graphic novel called ‘The Glorkian Warrior Delivers a Pizza’ which will be available on March 25th. I’m not a big comic person, but I’m actually quite stoked to pick up both the iOS game and the book to get the full Glorkian Warrior effect, and you can currently pre-order the graphic novel on Amazon prior to its launch date.
Be on the lookout for Glorkian Warrior: The Trials of Glork next week, and hit up our forums for some discussion.
