When Curt Schilling who is famous for his Game 6 performance in the 2004 ALCS vs the Yankees where he pitched 7 great innings which ended with his sock bloodied from a previous injury to his ankle and helping the Red Sox come back from 3 games to 0 down to tie the series and eventually go on to win the World Series. No one envisioned his future would be in the Gaming world.
2 years later he founded a company called 38 Studios, an entertainment and IP creation company in development on a broad range of products, including online and console video games, toys, novels, comics, film, TV, and other forms of digital media.
His 1st original RPG “Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning” looks like it could be a sleeper hit. Yet when you consider the people Schilling brought in to work on this game it’s hard to call it a sleeper. People like Todd McFarlane probably best known for his creation of Spawn and R. A. Salvatore a best-selling fantasy author and Ken Rolston who was the lead designer in the widely popular “Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion“. Here is an interview Schilling did earlier this year describing his past in gaming and how he came to work on Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
If your a gamer that loves RPG’s you might want to give this game a try. The bad part is having to wait cause it won’t be out this holiday season. It comes out February 2012.
