Kyy Games, Johan Lillbacka and PowerPark have teamed up to create a very unique experience for the Nordics and beyond. Following this month’s release of Trulon: The Shadow Engine for iOS, a series of novels and a live theater show will bring the Trulon steampunk fantasy world truly to life.
Johan Lillbacka, creator of the Trulon universe, is collaborating with American best-selling sci-fi and fantasy author Jak Koke to produce a series of e-books set in the Trulon world of steampunk and magic, with the first edition slated for release this year.
Visitors to PowerPark, Finland’s largest amusement park, will also have the chance to immerse themselves in this fantasy universe as Trulon characters appear live on stage this summer in performances featuring special effects, music and dance, directed by renowned producer Markku Anttila.
In Trulon: The Shadow Engine game, a card-based RPG inspired by Johan Lillbacka’s Trulon characters and settings, monsters and a mysterious disease have run riot through the kingdoms of “Tripudia” and “Maelon”, and players must strive to overcome enemies and guide their party to safety.
