As one of the writers on the animated series, it's safe to say Freiberger is familiar with the characters.

Last August, ESC Toys and Dennaton Games turned to Kickstarter in an attempt to bring the protagonist of Hotline Miami to life in action figure form. The hope was to turn Jacket into a sixth-scale collectible, with all manner of accessories and authentic clothing pulled from the game itself to accompany him.

In October 2014, a little-known UK indie studio launched a Kickstarter campaign for Impact Winter, a survival RPG described as “Fallout meets Oregon Trail.” It was an ambitious project for the small development team, with the Kickstarter description touting “open-world gameplay with dynamic weather, haunting interiors and fearsome wildlife” on a relatively small budget of £95,000 (around $150,000). One month later, the campaign concluded with Mojo Bones reaching not even a quarter of its fund-raising goal, and that was the last we heard of Impact Winter… until last week, when the project reemerged on Steam Greenlight and was approved in under three days.

In conjunction with the film's August release and the launch of the mobile game, Dan Abnett took some time from his busy schedule to talk with us about writing mobile games, and returning to the characters he helped bring back to prominence at Marvel.
We had a chance to talk with Blake J. Harris about his new book, 'Console Wars,' and delved a bit deeper into the battle between Sega and Nintendo.
“It’s a pleasure to see you at the Drunken Clam,” says Mayor Adam West to a tipsy crowd. No, this isn’t an episode of Fox’s ‘Family Guy,’ this is real life.
