Orange County, CA (October 26, 2005) - With the upcoming launch of Planetwide Games' landmark Comic Book Creator Self-Publishing software, the company is making available a Special 14-Day Trial version of the Comic Book Creator for a limited time at http://www.planetwidecomics.com/instantdownload. Planetwide Games developed this proprietary and patent-pending PC software using a team of artists and comic book experts.
"People really need to experience the software for themselves, to truly appreciate 'Comic Book Creator's' ease of use and functionality," said Kevin Donovan, President of Planetwide Games. "This super simple, easy-to-use software allows the user to create personalized comic books using your own video game play, DVD movies, personal photos, and other digital imagery."
Comic Book Creator is the first PC based Self-Publishing software to integrate the comic book and video game industries. Comic Book Creator's Self-Publishing software will allow a gamer or comic book enthusiast the opportunity to "Make Your Own Comic". You, as the artist will now be able to easily self-publish and share your own comic book adventure captured and created from your PC based video game play.
"Video Gamers can now create a professional-looking, high-quality comic book to immortalize an important battle scene or dramatic encounter within their game play," notes Donovan. "Comic Book Creator lets gamers add in text bubbles to their digital screenshots, as well as classic comic book features like POWerful action-word graphics that emphasize their game play. Game play is a very personal digital experience of time spent playing your favorite game and now you can share your virtual character identity and experience with your friends online through email, posting to your blog and printing out your own personalized comic."
To create a comic, you need only select one of the 500 unique layout and design templates, drop in your captured digital images and insert text bubbles, icons, captions and clipart to bring to life whatever story you can imagine. Comic Book Creator will work with any jpeg, bmp or gif digital image, and the retail version will allow users to share their masterpiece with friends by printing or exporting the image into an HTML or PDF file for online distribution.
Planetwide Games's Comic Book Creator will be released in November 2005 and will sell for $19.99 through specialty video game, electronic and mass market retailers in the US and Canada.
