Having him on board and collaborating with everyone is a really exciting time for the project,” said Red Fly Studio co-Founder and Art Director Kris Taylor. “Now with the new website up and running, we hope people can really come and get a vibe for what we are creating with the Mushroom Men universe.”
On the site, fans will find all the latest information about the world of boletes, morels, amanitas, and lepiotas. Sprouting from simple links; viewers will find rendered art, videos, characters, weapon systems, screenshots, gameplay footage and more. MushroomMen.com features the latest information about the game and will be continually updated with new content over the next several months. Fans will are also treated to Les Claypool’s exclusive mushroom-inspired character and theme music.
"When Mushroom Men was first presented to me I was coincidentally on the perpetual late fall hunt for the elusive King Bolete mushrooms which dot the West Sonoma County landscape where myself and my family dwell,” said Claypool. “The yearly quest for these fabulous, fungal delicacies has become a bit of a seasonal obsession for myself and my two children over the past few years. Coupled with my son's obsession with fantasy gaming, it was all I could do to get anything else done around Rancho Relaxo once he got wind of the impending Mushroom Man game and the creator's interest in having me do the soundtrack."
