Publisher Raw Fury has entered into an agreement with movie and TV production outfit Dj2 Entertainment to adapt three of its games into film or television. Sable, Night Call, and Mosaic are currently being worked on, with more Raw Fury titles under consideration for future adaptations.
What do we know about these new Raw Fury movie and TV projects?
Right now, we don't know an awful lot about these projects. The deal was just announced (thanks, GamesIndustry.biz), so it's unlikely we'll be getting in-depth information about what form we can expect these adaptations to take for some time yet. The three Raw Fury games being adapted make sense, though; Sable has a breathtakingly beautiful open world, Night Call is essentially an interactive noir movie, and Mosaic places a heavy emphasis on narrative.
What other Raw Fury games are in Dj2's scope?
It's not just these three, though. According to GamesIndustry.biz, other Raw Fury properties being considered for adaptations include the puzzle adventure game Call of the Sea, the Metroidvania platformer Dandara, and the first-person noir mystery The Signifier. These are all part of a "first look" deal between Raw Fury and Dj2 that will apparently allow the latter access to all of the publisher's properties. Dj2 founder Dmitri Johnson says the deal will allow his company to "begin developing adaptations even before a game is released", while Raw Fury CEO Jónas Antonsson described Dj2 as "a perfect fit" for his studio.
We'll have to wait and see what comes of this deal between Raw Fury and Dj2. The movie and TV production house have its work cut out for it; currently, TV shows based on Disco Elysium, Tomb Raider, and My Friend Pedro are all in production at Dj2, so it might be a while before work begins on the Raw Fury adaptations. Johnson's company has worked on properties as diverse as Life is Strange and the Sonic the Hedgehog movie, so it's got plenty of experience under its belt. Here's hoping for a fruitful collaboration between the two studios.
