Not enough diversity in comics? In gaming? Women not represented in either? Versus Fighting Game, Round 1 has all of the above!!! Open World Comics decided it was time to stop waiting for a handout!
The creator, Radi Lewis, began this game over 2 years ago and reached out to his circle of independent comic book publishers of color to add their characters to the game. It didn’t take much convincing because each recognized the importance of this project and what it can mean to an unrepresented community.
DIVERSITY: THE ART OF THINKING INDEPENDENTLY TOGETHER – MALCOLM FORBES
Versus combines the use of programs like Unity, Blender, Maya and Autodesk to create a sophisticated fighting game. The creator credits these programs in making game development accessible for independent publishers. Working as a one-man operation, Mr. Lewis developed basic knowledge of all the programs used in creating the game but hired developers, when money allowed, for the more complicated aspects of the game.
The VERSUS storyline is unique in that the writer created a universe to house all the diverse characters with their very different powers and personalities. The story begins with the universe in danger of collapsing. Fighters from different universes are chosen to battle for their place in the future realty. At this stage the game consist of 5 characters with 5 more in development. The game is slated for release on Steam and PC. You can reserve your copy at http://www.openworldcomics.com
