We were already looking forward to survival horror game Dead Space, but now we're even more excited: Warren Ellis, writer of revolutionary comic book Transmetropolitan, worked on the game!
Here's what Ellis told Kotaku:
Oh, I got released from an NDA the other day, so I can finally say that I wrote a bunch of the groundwork, backstory and structure on the forthcoming EA videogame DEAD SPACE, which recently got a comic prequel from the hands of Antony Johnston and Ben Templesmith. I believe there was at least one other writer on the
project, but I'm sure there's some of me in there somewhere.
Yeah! Check out the hands-on look at Dead Space under the cut. It comes out on October 20th for PC, 360 and PS3.
