Zombie Showcase Part 2 – John McCrea

Comicbook maestro John McCrea (Spider-man, Batman and Hitman) designs our putrid performer Debbie Decay!

John came up with this corrosive concept for Wailing height’s second-best singer, who unfortunately loses top billing to Ada Z in the Wailing Heights’ Soulless Saloon. That’s not to say you won’t hear Debbie’s voice in Wailing Heights…

Here’s a little preview of the design:

Zombie Showcase Part 1 – Gary Erskine!

Comic artists extraordinaire Gary Erskine (Wolverine, Punisher, ROLLER GRRRLS) adds a bit of zing to our soulful Zombies, with a design for our zombie diva Ada Z. 

As well as providing the concept and design art, the illustration will make their way into the game in poster form, hanging in Wailing Heights’ Soulless Saloon. It may even form a piece of a possession puzzle, but that’s getting into spoiler territory…

Here’s a little preview of the poster artwork!

As an added bonus, here’s a peek behind-the-creative-curtain with a look at Gary’s process sketches, working out Ada Z’s design:

The Aos Sí come to Welcome Heights

We are very happy to announce, that The Aos Sí have added Wailing Heights to their virtual touring schedule!

 

Aos Si

 

 

 

The Belfast-based band add a touch of ‘rotting green’ to their colourful sound, providing the jazzy, soulful music of Ada Z and the Zom Bs who perform nightly in Wailing Heights’ Soulless Saloon. 

James Downey, singer and songwriter for the band, also produces solo tracks for hipster vampire Fangs Farnsworth, and is providing sound design for the game.

 

 

 

 

 

We recently spent a day in the studio with the band, and the interview below provides a little insight into the musicians and their creative process as they perform as musical monsters.

 

 

We are Greenlit!

Well, that was fast!

After a shooting up the Greenlight charts and reaching the top 30, Wailing Heights was Greenlit after just 7 days!
