August 4, 2009 — OMAHA, NE: Crafty Games LLC has partnered with Frank Beddor, whose spirited reinvention of Wonderland challenges everything you know, or think you know, about the cherished fairytale classic.
"We're so excited to join Frank in his quest to reveal Wonderland's true history and can't wait to show off all the amazing things we've found beyond the Crystal Continuum," said Crafty Games partner Patrick Kapera. "Every day we're discovering new things in this lush world. It's a great honor and a tremendous privilege to be part of this journey."
"An RPG is the perfect vehicle to unleash the power of Imagination and explore the curious and sometimes dark corners of Wonderland," said Frank Beddor. "The team at Crafty Games are terrific collaborators, and the ideal candidates to expand and broaden the Looking Glass Wars."
The RPG will be powered by a versatile, new storytelling game engine designed for lightning-fast narrative play — the same system that will feature in the forthcoming Mistborn game.
About Frank Beddor
Literary sleuth and world creator Frank Beddor dared to expose Wonderland's true story in his novels The Looking Glass Wars, Seeing Redd, and ArchEnemy. Fascinated by ancient, illuminated cards first sighted at the British Museum, he spent ten years collecting and interpreting a series of scattered and elusive Wonderland decks, translating his findings in the best-selling trilogy. His search continues, with new revelations made in the geo-graphic novels Hatter M: The Looking Glass Wars and Hatter M: Mad with Wonder, as well as an online MMO, card game, and iPhone app. For more information, visit http://www.lookingglasswars.com
