Swedish developer Gaming Corps has announced that the studio is developing a game based on the upcoming film directed by Christian Cantamessa, Air. Both the movie and the game are slated for release in 2015.
Skybound Entertainment and Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman’s first feature, Air is a gritty character-driven sci-fi thriller starring Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead), Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy, Blood Diamond) and Sandrine Holt (House of Cards, Hostages). After an international conflict leaves the planet’s atmosphere toxic and its surface uninhabitable, the government makes a last minute attempt to save the human race by creating a series of underground bunkers filled with cryogenic sleeping tanks that hold a group of individuals who will serve as the seeds of civilization’s resurrection.
“We are very happy to work with Skybound Entertainment on this unique property,” says Gaming Corps CEO Nicklas Dunham. “We aim to create an experience that will please fans of the movie as well as gamers.”
“We look forward to expanding the world of Air into the interactive space with the team at Gaming Corps,” said Skybound Interactive president Dan Murray. “Working alongside the creator, Christian Cantamessa, we are excited about delivering a new set of characters and storylines within the world that Christian has conceived.”
The game will be available on Steam, consoles and mobile platforms later this year.
