As all TheFeed readers know, I am a man of letters, a scholar and a gentleman. So I'm excited that a novel based on video game Rage has been announced. The book, written by Matt Costello (who also wrote the game), will be on finer store shelves on August 30.
According to the press release, the novel delves deeper into Rage's world, so if you like the game, you'll like reading about the game. Here's the official blurb:
"The world was doomed and only some of the population could be saved. That was what the scientists were saying, at least. So the best and brightest were gathered and put into stasis deep beneath the surface of the Earth--buried so that man could live.
When Lt. Nick Raine emerges from his Ark, he finds the human race has not been wiped out. And people, as resilient as they are, are scraping together a new world from the rubble of the old. This was not what anyone in the Arks expected--a new society where might is right, mutants plague the Earth, and “friend” is a term for the person who hasn't stabbed you in the back."
So what do you guys think? Do you read books about games?
