JourneyQuest is a fantasy comedy web series from the creators of "The Gamers" and "The Gamers: Dorkness Rising".
Following a group of dysfunctional adventurers on a quest to discover and destroy the mythical Sword of Fighting, JOURNEYQUEST is a comedic adventure through the fantasy world of Fartherall, where intellectual orcs, incompetent wizards, and holy zombies form the living (and not-so-living) backdrop to an epic story of unrequited love, burning passions, and severely reluctant heroism.
And running away. Lots of running away...
I've been waiting for this!!
It seems I haven't been paying close enough attention, as they finally started releasing the JourneyQuest episodes!
Looks like we just got another Backers Only post.
I won't post all of it, since, well, you know, it's Backers Only, however, I'll post the relevant parts for those that didn't back the project.
• Begin releasing completed episodes online, which should be no later than July 16 for the public. We'll show as many episodes as are done at Comic Con San Diego on July 13/14, so backers will likely receive their links by the 12th or 13th.
Is the show any good?
Yes. The increased scale and scope of this season will knock your hats off. It's beautiful, epic, hilarious, and… well, you'll see soon enough.
So, it looks like S2 should be going public mid-July or so.
Event registration is now open for The Gamers Live at Gen Con!
Join the cast of The Gamers: Dorkness Rising for a live improv comedy event where the audience is the GM, featuring Gamers writer/director Matt Vancil, Brian Lewis (Cass), Christian Doyle (Gary), Scott. C Brown (Leo), and Nathan Rice (Lodge).
With your help, we’ll create a new canon story in the Gamers universe! Then, immortalize yourself in the on-screen audience as Jen Page joins us to film the climactic tournament scene from our newest feature film, The Gamers: Hands of Fate.
Approximately 1 1/2 weeks until the Season 2 premiere!
New Kickstarter Post
Based on our pace, we're anticipating having the first three episodes ready to show at SDCC on July 13, which means that our $250+ backers should get a first look at the show online on July 11th and we'll drop Episode One publicly on July 12th.
After that, new episodes will premiere on Tuesdays through September!
Today our buddies at Zombie Orpheus Entertainment kicked off Season Two of their cult web hit, JourneyQuest. ZOE's brainy blend of fantasy & comedy made their first feature, The Gamers, a cult classic. JourneyQuest's second season was entirely fan-funded through a viral Kickstarter campaign, which allowed JQ to lay down some amazing production values and marquee names. Joss Whedon fans will be happy to know that the JQ cast has been joined by Fran Kranz, of Dollhouse and The Cabin in the Woods. And for all you MMA fans: Bob Sapp.
What does this have to do with Fuel, you say? Well, during filming, JourneyQuest's small cast and crew consumed 112 cups of Fuel coffee per day.
We hope everyone is enjoying the second season of JourneyQuest! Episode three drops in a couple of days and our composer, Steve Wolbrecht, is just finishing up the music for episode four.
We're also hard at work mailing signed JourneyQuest posters to backers and getting ready for Gen Con Indy and have just launched a Kickstarter campaign for our newest project, The Gamers: Hands of Fate! We promised the fans that we'd make a new Gamers movie once JQ Season Two was off the ground and now we're following through.
A fantasy comedy about roleplaying gamers, collectible card games, and gaming conventions, Hands of Fate will be our biggest project yet. We invite you to check out our Kickstarter and help make the next Zombie Orpheus/Dead Gentlemen movie project a reality.
Thanks for making what we do possible and we'll see you next Tuesday for Episode 03 of the new JourneyQuest.
