Game On, Comic Con: Sleepy Giant Teams Up with Emmy Award-Winner Jeff Matsuda and Free Lunch Design for Comic ConQuest

Newport Beach, CA, July 16, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Sleepy Giant Entertainment is partnering with Free Lunch Design (creators of the Icy Tower franchise) on Comic ConQuest, a free-to-play tactical RPG adventure set in a giant comic and sci-fi convention in which costumed fans have been transformed into the characters they portray. The homemade costumes and plastic weapons become real, and the show floor becomes a battleground as the attendees-turned-heroes use their newfound powers to fight their way to faction supremacy.

Comic ConQuest will feature the talents of Emmy award-winning producer and renowned comic book artist Jeff Matsuda. Matsuda’s career spans 18 years in TV, film, comics and videogames. He is best known for producing The Batman and Jackie Chan Adventures, and for his work on fan favorite comic book titles such as X-Men, Batman, Wolverine, The Avengers, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

“I’ve always loved going to Comic Con and seeing Klingons walking around talking to Harry Potter and Batman. And I’d think, how awesome would it be if they had actual powers and fought to see who could rule the con? So when Sleepy Giant came to me with the idea for this game, I dove in headfirst,” said Jeff Matsuda, Executive Producer. “We’ve got a super nerdy dream team over here with backgrounds in art, comics and gaming, and we’re passionate about making Comic ConQuest a fun, die-hard nerd experience.”

This is an epic adventure in a world where the suit really does make the hero. Players battle their way through the con, fighting for survival, hunting for swag, forming guilds, and striving for supremacy in the war-torn wasteland of the once (mostly) peaceful show floor.

Comic ConQuest is slated to launch across web, mobile, and tablet platforms in Q4 2013. Players who register by August 31, 2013 will receive free exclusive early access (to the web version) along with a set of virtual steak knives (in-game). Sign up and learn more at comicconquest.net.

However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
