Read the Girl Genius Comics Within a Video Game with “Girl Genius: Adventures in Castle Heterodyne”
The Kickstarter for Girl Genius: Adventures in Castle Heterodyne is a new and exciting avenue for the Girl Genius comics and Studio Foglio. However, this isn’t just because the universe will be expanding to video games.
A new announcement from Rain Games has confirmed that If the Kickstarter for the video game is successful, players will also be able to dive deeper into the universe through a built-in comics reader in-game, including the entirety of the Girl Genius comics, for free.
Normally the comics for Girl Genius can be read physically or through a reader on the Girl Genius website, but this new video game feature allows for reading in-game on multiple platforms and devices.
So far “Girl Genius: Adventures in Castle Heterodyne” has only been confirmed for Nintendo Switch and PC, however, Kenneth from Rain Games says, “PC and Nintendo Switch will be our priority if the Kickstarter is successful, however It’s unlikely that we’ll stop there as Rain Games tend to release on as many platforms as possible”.
The comics reader will be provided through a partnership with InkyPen, a company that have created a subscription-based all-you-can-read comic and manga service on Nintendo Switch. The reader will also come with a ton of features included in InkyPen that allow for different reading experiences such as:
– Horizontal and Vertical ReadingToggles
– Scroll Mode and Snap Mode toggles
– Touch control (for applicable devices)
The Kickstarter for “Girl Genius: Adventures in Castle Heterodyne” is running right now at 93%, with 4 days left.
