New website features first visuals and videos of the Tales of Honor storyworld
LOS ANGELES – February 26, 2014 – Evergreen Studios’ Tales of Honor multi-platform storyworld, based on David Weber’s bestselling Honor Harrington series of science-fiction novels, now has an official website. Fans can now get a glimpse of the first comic book issue, screenshots from the mobile game, along with preliminary art and information from the upcoming feature film slated for 2017. The new site includes insight into the development process and video interviews with some of the creative team. Visit www.tales-of-honor.com now for all the latest.
Tales of Honor kicks off March 5th with the first of five comic books in a monthly series, through publisher Top Cow (available in comic stores and digitally at Comixology.com). The first issue introduces spaceship captain Honor Harrington on the eve of her execution. From prison, Honor relays her epic adventures, starting with a command posting to a hellish backwater star system that ends up being the linchpin of an interstellar crisis that will bring war to her home planet. The first six pages of Tales of Honor: On Basilisk Station are now viewable on the official website.
“We are really trying something new here with a holistic approach to the Honorverse,” said Scott Kroopf, Chief Creative Officer of Evergreen Studios. “Instead of releasing content on various platforms to supplement one feature presentation, we are creating many avenues of entry into this storyworld for existing Honor Harrington fans and newcomers alike.”
“We are engaging with consumers in a non-traditional way since we are sharing film concept art and giving people a look behind the curtain. Transparency, this early on, is almost unheard of in the business but we feel fan input is important,” said Mike Devlin, CEO of Evergreen Studios.
The first mobile game, Tales of Honor: The Secret Fleet, will be available on iOS in mid-March and on Android shortly afterwards. This tactical strategy game puts players at the helm of long-range interstellar battle scenarios, modeled on conflicts from the Honor Harrington novels. Players must repair, upgrade, and efficiently manage the ship’s crew and components in order to emerge victorious
