Media Spotlight: They Came From Trailers

Welcome back to our media spotlight blog, with this week’s light shining on all the fun we’ve had making trailers for the They Came From games!

The Spotlight

Maybe it’s a little self-indulgent to highlight out own content, but hell, in the run up to the They Came from [CLASSIFIED]! and They Came from the Cyclops’s Cave! Double Feature Kickstarter launching this Thursday, why not?

The first two trailers we had produced for They Came From were by the masterful Larry Blamire, who some of you may know as the director of such features as The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra and Dark and Stormy Night. Not only that, but Larry contributed his fine words to Beneath the Sea!, [CLASSIFIED]!, and Cyclops’s Cave! Revisit the Beneath the Sea! and Beyond the Grave! trailers here and here:

And in advance of our Kickstarter launch, myself and Travis Legge put together a double feature trailer for our newest additions to the They Came From line, which we’re very happy with. It’s incredibly silly, but conveys the tones of both games pretty well!

They Came from Beyond the Grave!
