Kick Some Hands: “The Gamers: Hands of Fate” Kickstarter

The Gamers: Hands of Fate

These Hands Need Kickin’

Those Dead Gentlemen folks, the people responsible for The Gamers: Dorkness Rising (starring my pals the Gibbs Brothers) and the JourneyQuest webseries (starring Fran Kranz of Dollhouse and Cabin in the Woods fame), want to make a sequel to Dorkness Rising.

They were extremely successful with a Kickstarter campaign to make the 2nd season of JourneyQuest, so they have a Kickstarter campaign going for this latest endeavor as well. And this one looks like it’s going to go down to the wire: they have one week left and still need to raise about $40,000.

This sequel to Dorkness Rising is called Hands of Fate, and is about a foray into the world of Collectible Card Games. I enjoy the Dead Gentlemen’s output quite a bit, so I put in a few dollars. So can you! You can learn more about this project in this Kickstarter video of theirs:

The Dead Gentlemen are going to PAX (which is happening right now) to drum up support, so I have a feeling there’s going to be a rather large spike in support this weekend, but still every little bit helps.

JourneyQuest Season 2

Dead Gentlemen Productions (the people behind The Gamers: Dorkness Rising among others) made a well-received fantasy/comedy webseries quite a while back called JourneyQuest. After an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign, they are finally back with Season 2, which promises to be feature-length and includes roles that are filled with actors like Fran Kranz (Dollhouse, The Cabin in the Woods), Bob Sapp (Elektra, The Longest Yard, Conan the Barbarian), and Jen Page (the aforementioned The Gamers: Dorkness Rising). The first episode of the 2nd season is actually a prologue to the whole series, and knocks down some one-off gags from the original series (Wren’s headmistress likes Genies, the Mad Kings, etc.). Here it is:

And here is the second episode:

What many people don’t know is that before the Dead Gentlemen were a film production crew, they also were an improv troupe! Fools Play did some co-shows with them. That’s howcome the Gibbs brothers are in TG:DR, ’cause we know these guys. So give ’em some support!
