Curt Schilling taps Hollywood fx company to unveil new game

Curt Schilling’s 38 Studios continues to surprise people.
The game development house headed by the former major league pitcher took the
wraps off of its first game – “Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning” –
last week. Now it’s showing some of the talent behind it.

Celebrated artist and writer Todd McFarlane worked with
Zoic Studios to create the trailer for the game (viewable

), which is based on the works of R. A. Salvatore.

It’s an impressive lineup of talent that surprised many
casual industry observers, who assumed Schilling would take the easy route and
create a baseball game. What they don’t realize is that he’s a long-time gamer,
who has been watching the industry for years.

Leading the development team on the game is Ken Rolston, a
25-year industry veteran best known for his work on the “Elder Scrolls”
franchise at Bethesda. (He was lead designer on “The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion,”
one of 2006’s most critically acclaimed games.)

Zoic, meanwhile, is an fx house who has done work on ABC’s
“V” and “Flash Forward” as well as Fox’s “Terminator: The Sarah Connor
Chronicles”.
