James Kochalka and Pixeljam Games team up to create Glorkian Warrior

Seattle, WA.- February 24, 2010 - Award winning comic book artist James Kochalka has teamed up with indie game studio Pixeljam to create Glorkian Warrior, a sci-fi platformer with a cartoony sense of humor and endearing characters.

To quote Kochalka: "For the past year I've been working on a graphic novel called Glorkian Warrior. But before I even started worked on the graphic novel, I originally conceived it as a video game. Now I've just teamed up with a really great little indy video game studio called Pixeljam to actually make the Glorkian Warrior video game that I've been dreaming of."

Furthermore, Pixeljam has created a Kickstarter project to help get the game off the ground:

All backers of the project get a free copy of the game, and larger pledges yield production sketches, original artwork and signed graphic novels or comics. The kickstarter project ends March 22.
