It’s been a while – but I then don’t like endless streams of updates for no reason! However, we now have a whole bunch of exciting news to pass on to you, our wonderful fans and supporters of Hopeless Maine.
Firstly, (let’s get the sales bit out of the way) don’t forget that the BackerKit shop is still open for business if you’d like to add to your Hopeless Maine collection – we will be adding some more new items soon.
Secondly, if you haven’t visited the Hopeless Maine Vendetta for a while, then you should definitely check it out. As well as all the Early Bird backer Obituaries, beautifully, quirkily and humorously penned by Nimue Brown, there have been some excellent contributions from third parties including a poem from author Craig Hallam, and a tale from Meredith Debonnaire – both of which will be of interest to fans of Annemarie Nightshade.
Thirdly, and the most exciting news is that there is a Hopeless Maine film in the planning. Here’s our official statement from the Hopeless Maine Facebook page:
We've been teasing for a while now that there's a big project underway. It's a film. We're in the process of making a Hopeless Maine film – live-action with puppets. It is very early days, but we are greatly excited about the whole thing. It will be a silent film with a soundtrack, and we have an amazing team of people working on it. We've been exploring the idea for more than six months at this point. We now have a script. In the coming months, we'll be posting content about how we got to here, and then more as we saunter forwards. Thank you (in advance) for coming with us. There will be tentacles.
Fourthly, look out for this RPG game Tiny Cthulhu, launching soon on Kickstarter which Tom drew the cover for – definitely of interest if you are into Lovecraft and elder gods!
Fifthly, we are… oh, sorry, can’t reveal this one just yet! But it’s big!
Sixthly… is sixthly even a thing? Anyway – we always like to finish on some wonderful art, so here is the cover for the next Hopeless, Maine graphic novel Optimists – the penultimate book in the series. This post will tell you more about the image.
