Dr Grordbort Presents: The Deadliest Game from Media Design School on Vimeo.

Excerpt from the Weta website.. Greg Broadmore has worked at Weta Workshop as a concept designer and creator of worlds for over 8 years.

In 2006, Weta revealed their Dr. Grordbort's Rayguns range, entirely designed and conceptualised by Greg. Dr Grordbort's Infallible Aether Oscillators blew up across the Internet and was embraced by Wired magazine, Boing Boing, IO9 and others. He has since gone on to launch an internationally touring Dr Grordbort's Exceptional Exhibition, write two critically acclaimed books in this retro-science fiction universe, and is currently expanding the world into new creative frontiers.

Riese: Kingdom Falling

A long overdue post... Riese: Kingdom Falling takes place in Eleysia, a dying kingdom where distrust and anxiety have clouded people's minds, causing a regression into primitive ways of thinking. Rituals and mythology have resurged, and the darker side of mankind has begun to reveal itself. Riese, a wanderer, travels across the decaying land with her wolf, Fenrir. Marked as a heretic by religious group The Sect and the new Empress, Riese must evade their assassins and discover their true intentions for Eleysia.

This series is shot in Vancouver, BC and it looks like the first book in a novel series to be published by Simon and Schuster, is scheduled to come out in June 2012.

AND there is an iPhone/iPod/iPad app narrated by Felicia Day to check out. Trailer for season 2 below.
