Battle Tails Teaser – Huck Gee

Friday, May 31st, 2013

Battle Tails, a live action strategic defense game for Android and iOS that brings Huck Gee’s Gold Life character designs to life, has been funded via a Kickstarter campaign. I am a big fan of Huck Gee’s work and have been for awhile, so seeing his characters brought to life in a game is really exciting. It is always interesting to see toy designers bring characters to other platforms and mediums. Although this project has been funded, there are still stretch goals to be attained via Kickstarter. Check out the latest teaser of the game below!

And if you are feeling hungry for a taste of Huck’s work, grab his book “The Art of Huck Gee” or pick up his Post Apocalypse Dunny here.
