In an era of reboots and franchises that rise lifelessly from the grave, what’s still more than meets the eye? Transformers!
Although the bitter taste of the Bay-formers still taints our nostalgic tongues, there are still men and women out there doing right by both Autobots and Decepticons. Enter High Moon Studios and their Transformers series of games beginning with War of Cybertron in 2010 and now continuing on with Fall of Cybertron due on August 21, 2012.
Created by self-described fans of the original Generation One Transformers from ’84, the Cybertron series rings true to other fans of G1. Featuring a familiar cast of characters and the iconic voice of Peter Cullen as he reprises his role as Optimus Prime, the series itself is a Hasbro-sanctioned reboot to the franchise that gives players control of both the heroic Autobots and their villainous Decepticon counterparts.
At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con we spoke with Dave Cravens of High Moon Studios about the upcoming sequel, and why Fall of Cybertron will be worth the wait.
