Automata

July 8, 2015

This ought to be cool… the Penny Arcade folks are shooting to get a digitally-distributed mini-series of their Automata storyline produced, funding it through Kickstarter.  Of all their “side” projects, this is the one I’ve enjoyed the most, I like the premise (film noir prohibition era gangster detective story with “thinking machines”-style robots) and the stories they’ve told so far have been very evocative and always leaving just enough uncertainty at the end to keep one hungry for more.  I’d recommend checking out the stories they’ve done, and check out the Kickstarter too:

(Kickstarter — making it possible yet again for me to support things I like.)
