As we near closer to the release of Orcs Must Die!, we know how the game plays and what it’s about. But we don’t know what happens before the game begins, so the lore is being built around it. It’s really great so much effort is being put into the back story and building up around the game – it really makes it interesting. I can’t wait to read it.
Robot Entertainment has digitally released Orcs Must Die! Issue #0, the official back story to the upcoming downloadable game Orcs Must Die! The single-issue comic tells the story of a world endangered by savage monsters and of the heroes that rose up to drive them back. The events in Orcs Must Die! Issue #0 lead directly to the opening cinematic of the game, and can be downloaded for free at the official Orcs Must Die! website. As a bonus, the comic features an Orcs-inspired art gallery of original pieces by Robot Entertainment artists and friends of the studio.
