City of Rott Game Greenlit for STEAM!

UPDATE: August 9, 2016
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/f … ts+of+rott

Some unexpected news from Steam about the game I’m working on, City of Rott: Streets of Rott planned for PC, Mac and Linux. I just got an email from Steam saying this game was Greenlit for sale on steampowered.com, one of the biggest online retailers of video games on the internet. The challenge was to have hundreds of interested gamers approve of the game as something they’d like to see available for purchase on Steampowered.com. After enough gamers showed interest in it, it was approved by Steam to my surprise. I originally posted my game for consideration among thousands of other titles to pick from back in February 2016, and the process took many months before it earned enough votes in August 2016.

Here’s the email info:
Your title, “City of Rott: Streets of Rott,” has been Greenlit!
To continue, you will need to complete the necessary digital paperwork to sign up as a new Steamworks Partner.

I was not expecting that at all to be honest, and had since put more energy into other art projects to earn a living, but continuing work on this game in my spare time of course. So now I just have to start the next steps to align it with Steampowered and put the game through after adding some more stuff to complete it and make it as fun and entertaining as I know how to.

Thank you to everyone who supported it!

COROposterflat_halfB4


Goal:
To create a fun & original, Animated Feature Length Zombie Movie starring an old man and his walker, set in another Realm with plenty of Action, Horror and some Humor, telling the story of the old man’s quest for enlightenment and freedom as he battles the Zombie Hordes. To be intended for older audiences due to cartoon violence, blood and gore and some language. Runtime estimate may be about 70 to 80 minutes total.
The preview Trailer shown is only a hint of what is to be created, and it gives a strong idea of what to expect with the style of animation, detail of the illustrations, music and sound effects in the film to be made.

Movie’s Plot Summary:
An old man named Fred, recovering from the loss of his mind and his former life, along with his talking Walker, reluctantly enter the Otherworld’s City of Rott, a mirror realm filled with infectious Living Dead among an even more sinister evil, the Stalker. At all costs, Fred must avoid this powerful entity that infects the Otherworld, turning its victims into mindless Zombies.
With the guidance of Renzer, a mysterious inhabitant with amazing power, and the goal to save the life of a beautiful Nurse infected by the Rott plague, Fred desperately seeks to unravel the mysteries of the Otherworld, on his epic journey to escape the bone chilling City of Rott.

CITY OF ROTT: Otherworld First Image!

CITY OF ROTT: Otherworld First Image!

CORO1stpic

The first image from the planned movie City of Rott: Otherworld can be seen above. Pictured is Fred Figiero and his Walker after the events of City of Rott 1. City of Rott: Otherworld is not a prequel, but a definite step forward into the Otherworld for Fred. The otherworld is a very dangerous place filled with infectious Zombies as will soon be explained. But Fred is about to discover something even more sinister lurking in the shadows of the City of Rott. There are definite consequences to his actions in the Otherworld. I’m definitely excited about this new twist to the City of Rott and the return of Fred and his Walker. He’s a lot more focused this time, and has real goals in the movie beyond a pair of shoes.

The great news is the first sequence with Fred has been animated and currently rendering. The real challenge ahead will be finding more free time to make this project happen on schedule. No release date yet, but I’d like to have something concrete by Fall 2016. More later. – F. Sudol (Sole creator of City of Rott and all aspects of the film.)

CITY OF ROTT 3 SCRIPT in the works.

City of Rott 3’s script is in the works, with several new concepts being brought to the table to keep the series fresh. This new story is currently entitled “City of Rott: Otherworld” and will feature hand drawn zombies, as seen in City of Rott 1, only with much better animation thanks to a program called Anime Studio Pro 8, which is a fairly exciting program to work on, thanks to its very intuitive and easy to learn features.
