    Dark Unicorn Games at the 2017 Carolina Games Summit!

    Dec 6, 2016

    Good news, everyone! We will be presenting Super Powered Smash Masters™ at the upcoming 2017 Carolina Games Summit in Goldsboro, North Carolina! The event is taking place on February 4th and 5th next year and it will include table-top games, game tournaments and more!

    If you've never heard of it, here's a summary on their own words: "This hybrid event will once again deliver industry speakers, video game tournaments, concerts, exhibition booths, cosplay, educational sessions, and trading card games. Attendees will be able to compete against gamers from all over the country in a variety of popular tournaments. Enjoy all your favorite platforms including arcade, computer, and console games with both tournament and free-play options available."

    And Johnna Koonce, the Executive Producer of the Carolina Games Summit, had some lovely things to say about us: “Dark Unicorn Games' first entry into the card gaming space is a well polished and fun parody superhero game that can be enjoyed by the entire family; our attendees will not only be able to experience a brand new card game, but also meet the company behind it.” That's us! We'll be there!

    Here's our full release (for those of you who like to read words in shiny PDF-format). If you're attending, let us know as we get closer to February so we can say "HELLO!" (well, maybe we won't be that dramatic but...who knows)

    Artist Spotlight: Pat O'lliffe

    If you’re a long time Spider-Man fan like me, the words “clone saga” might raise your blood pressure a bit or cause that funny twitch in your eye to come back. As much respect as I have for the creators on that particular story arc in the mid 1990’s, I have to admit that it drove me away from comics for a short time. Read more
