3D action game Nanosaur has gone hand-in-hand with the iMac since the computer was first introduced. Its success has helped to spawn other Pangea games, like Bugdom, Cro-Mag Rally and the forthcoming title Otto Matic. Now, the futuristic dinosaur is going to star in his own comic book, coming next month from independent publisher
Nanosaur has proven to be fertile ground for Todd Broeker, Rich Bonk and Kevin Conrad. The team already has credits under their belt which include titles like Spawn: The Dark Ages and Kiss: Psycho Circus. And it’s only fitting that the Nanosaur comic book should debut from an independent publisher like Samson Comics, since independence is largely what Nanosaur’s software progenitor is all about. Pangea Software has been one of the only independent publishers of originally developed commercial Macintosh games for the past several years.
“In the future, Dinosaurs rule the earth once more, but not for long. Man brought back these amazing reptiles at the expense of his own demise. Now the very DNA that sustains the Dinosaurs’ existence may cause their destruction,” reads the Samson Comics Web site. “Disease is raving the evolved Saurians, killing them off to the brink of another extinction. The only solution for the reptiles is to send of their own back through time to collect enough DNA from their ancestors to cure the disease. The only problem is that he arrives just before the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs the first time is due to hit.”
The comic book is richly illustrated with lush, colorful and action-packed graphics. Many examples of the book’s art are now available online at the Samson Comics Web site, including pencil sketches, sneak peeks of interior pages, and desktop wallpaper for your enjoyment. You can also fill out a promo form to register to win a signed copy of the finished product, too.
If you’ve somehow managed to miss the Nanosaur craze and you’re curious about what the fuss is all about, you can download a shareware version of the game from
Pangea Software’s Web site. Look for Nanosaur — the comic book — to hit comic shops in August.
