Montclair, CA, United States, 2013/07/02 - An epic struggle carves the galaxy among the Imperium, Ro8ocorp, Pirates and Rebels. Welcome to the Rebel Future. Episodic storytelling unfolds through a series of games, cartoons and comics.
Ro8ocorp is proud to announce The Rebel Future - a brand new universe of multi-platform storytelling.
The Rebel Future is the umbrella brand for an entire slate of projects that will be delivered through games, apps, comics and animation. Each release will focus on synergizing multiple mediums to deliver a rich user experience combined with dynamic storytelling and unforgettable characters.
Stories in the Rebel Future unfold against the backdrop of a galaxy divided among four main factions : The self righteous Imperium, The enigmatic Mega-corporation Ro8ocorp, The narcissistic Pirates and The altruistic Rebels. Incorporating elements of Sci-Fi, Cyberpunk, pulp adventure novels and classic fantasy, The Rebel Future blends familiar tropes into an exciting new mythology, sure to delight people of all ages.
The key concept in creating the Rebel Future is to utilize each medium for it’s core strengths while using a combination of approaches that makes the entire experience stronger. For example, a storyline may play out through a digital comics experience that then allows the viewer to shift seamlessly to a game and then at a key moment to watch an animated video and so forth. This combination of elements aims to provide a rich level of engagement while enhancing the overall storyline and universe.
Specific products will be announced over the next several months with the first teaser available now at the Rebel Future website.
The creation of the Rebel Future originated with professional game developer and musician, Dela, who conceived the idea initially as an interactive concept record to be released by his band Open Source Rebellion. With multiple titles under his belt (Curious George, Animal Planet, Flavor Monsters, Monsterology), Dela began plotting how he could bring his own rock'n'roll infused entertainment franchise to the world. The scale of the project quickly outgrew the album concept and culminated in the formation of Ro8ocorp, Inc. The enterprise teamed up with M2, a transmedia company that specializes in Motion Comics and creative development, to bring the concept to market. Working together, The Rebel Future has arrived.
“The most exciting thing for us is the opportunity to play a part in the launch of a whole new universe.” said M2 Partner, Eben Matthews. “We got to conceive and design every single element from space ships and laser blasts to boots and hairstyles. You won’t believe what we have in store as this all rolls out.”
“The great thing about the creative collaboration between Ro8ocorp and M2 is that our combined skill sets allow us to push the envelope into some very exciting new areas,” Said Dela,“We’re teasing you now but if you keep up with us online, we'll be sharing all the neat stuff we're making as well as pulling back the curtain a bit on how we’re making it. We think people, and kids especially, are going to have a lot of fun exploring this new universe.”
Ro8ocorp Inc. is a transmedia entertainment company established for the sole purpose of constructing the Rebel Future universe. It's identity is so intertwined with the Rebel Future that it even shares it's name with one of the concept's four factions: Ro8ocorp a galactic sized mega-corporation.
