For those of you who have been paying close attention, KEYSTONE GAMES has been hitting the spotlight very quickly lately. And it’s not really a surprise either. A few weeks ago they announced their launch, indicating that they would be partnering with game development companies to make games that creates profits for the disabled and less fortunate.
Since then, a whole host of massive announcements were made. One of them was that actor Warwick Davis joined their cast of voice actors for one of the upcoming 5 games they are busy developing, namely Homicide Detective. You may know him as the loveable Ewok Wicket, Filius Flitwick from the Harry Potter franchise, Willow Ufgood in the classic Ron Howard fantasy film Willow and the voice of Rukh in the upcoming season 4 of Star Wars: Rebels.
One of our authors and owner of Celenic Earth Publications, Shaun M Jooste, has been keeping close tabs on the company, including an interview with COO Jane Whittaker and some exclusive reveals for Homicide Detective on The Pulse Entertainment. Shaun also did an announcement editorial on Keystone Games on GameTyrant. He will be following this up with an interview with the Head of Art for Keystone, Katie Bailey.
The relationship and networking has progressed to such a stage that we are proud to announce that Celenic Earth Publications and Keystone Games have become partners. What this means is that CEP and Keystone will be working close together from now on to present the latest news of upcoming books and games. There is also a strong possibility of CEP becoming a publisher of any books based on the games, as well as lending writing talent from CEP authors to game writing and development.
And the first opportunity has already presented itself! One of our CEA Through the Dark Volume 1 Horror Anthology writers, Andi Hodgetts, has officially been signed up as an actor for Homicide Detective, as well as possible future games! We cannot tell you just how proud this makes us to have one of our own acting in future AAA titles that will be published by Keystone Games.
Of course, there is no rest for the productive. CEP and Keystone have been in a flurry of discussions this week over further opportunities. There has been some severe brainstorming, with lists of potential opportunities presenting themselves, but we cannot announce any of it just yet. Once all the i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed, and Keystone makes the announcements publicly themselves, we will definitely be presenting the news too you!
This is just the first step in propelling Celenic Earth Publications into the future, and cross-networking across different platforms and not only books! Watch this space very carefully.
