Madison, WI, July 18, 2019 –(PR.com)– Game Director, theme park designer and serial entrepreneur Stephen E. Dinehart will be kicking off his new project with game design legends James M. Ward and Kimber Eastland at Gen Con 2019, August 1st in Indianapolis, a table-top role playing game and live-action world based in an all original universe, called GiantLands™. Being developed by some of the original talent behind TSR’s Dungeons and Dragons and Gammaworld, in the birthplace of the Role-playing Game – Wisconsin. Additionally, Wonderfilled will be presenting the project at The Forward Festival, Saturday, August 24th in Madison, Wisconsin.
Few details are available, but expected to be announced in the coming weeks, GiantLands includes: A live-action role-playing game, special events, and a game park.
“This game is the culmination of my life’s work,” Dinehart stated. “We’re bringing role-playing games back home, with the next generation of location-based immersive entertainment.” The game will include a traditional boxed-set of books and game accessories to be released beginning in Q1FY20 with the park slated to open in 2022 in a yet to be disclosed location. A lifelong lover of games and scholar, Dinehart went on, “Somehow, I’ve encountered the perfect storm and am working with my boyhood idols on a project I began when I was 10, based on their games, to create an immersive world. Truly a dream come true, a passion I hope brings joy to many and makes the world more Wonderfilled.” James M. Ward, veteran game designer, went on, “I have never worked on a project that was destined to become a theme park. I’m very excited for what that concept is doing to my game design.”
James M. Ward is an American game designer and fantasy author, most well known for his game development and writing work for TSR, Inc., where he worked for more than 20 years creating numerous projects. In addition to many video games, Dinehart’s recent projects have included Evermore Park, an immersive theatrical park in Utah, and Super Nintendo World, a land coming to Universal Parks and Resorts worldwide. Collectively, the team has been making games for over 100 years, with everyone from Gary Gygax to Miyamoto, John Carpenter and Steven Spielberg. Together, this is slated to be their most ambitious project to date.
