That’s right, you and your family can be part of something fun, something different…and something where you can possibly win a $5000 grand prize that will be split between the winner and the winner’s library of choice.
BattleKasters Free San Diego Comic Con Event
- What: BattleKasters, a downloadable mobile game that turns live events into game boards, is coming to #SDCC.
- When: July 9-12th from 11am-8pm
- Where: The Gaslamp Quarter Museum in the historical Gaslamp District in San Diego
Based on the award-winning, young adult book series, Legends of Orkney, by transmedia author Alane Adams, BattleKasters is a whole new experience for gamers and readers. This app-based game allows players to collect digital trading cards, cast spells, and close the stonefire portal to protect Earth from dark magic – all while giving gamers the chance to explore the historic district near the San Diego Convention Center, where Comic-Con is being held.
BattleKasters is the perfect activity for gamers, readers, parents, and kids spending time in the area surrounding Comic-Con. Located in the Gaslamp Quarter Museum, it is one of the few free San Diego Comic Con events that caters to the whole family. The museum will be selling copies of The Red Sun, the first book in the Legends of Orkney series with proceeds benefiting the Gaslamp Foundation and literacy causes.
That’s not all! You will also have a chance to meet the team behind the book-to-game transmedia platform! Alane Adams, author of the Legends of Orkney series will be on hand to sign The Red Sun. Lead BattleKasters designer, Brent Friedman, who designed BattleKasters and co-founded Artifact Technologies, the company that developed the game, will be available to talk about the strategy and technology behind the mobile game. Famous Star Wars artist Dave Dorman, who produced original art for Legends of Orkney; and Jonathan Stroh, digital artist for the game’s animation, will both be selling and signing prints.
Anyone interested in playing BattleKasters or purchasing The Red Sun before its official August book release, can get more information on BattleKasters.com or at the Gaslamp Museum. For official sweepstakes rules and details, participants can learn more here.
