Judge Dredd: Countdown Sector 106 gets a trailer



Tin Man Games have released the premier iOS trailer for their upcoming digital gamebook, Judge Dredd: Countdown Sector 106.

The footage reveals some of the game's artwork, layout and presentation along with a bad-ass soundtrack.

Along with the trailer, the Tin Man Games blog gave a short blurb about the new game:
"Sector 106 of Mega-City One is short of senior Street Judges and only the most experienced Judges have been reassigned to fill this shortfall…foremost among them yourself, Dredd! What begins as a routine patrol arresting juves and skysurfers, turns into a race against time, as mysterious “Voices of Dredd” find their way into the hands of the local perps. Riding your Lawmaster bike and armed with your trusty Lawgiver, you must pit yourself against Sector 106′s brutal criminal underworld. Quick Dredd! The countdown has begun…"
Judge Dredd is Tin Man's first licensed game, using the famous character from the venerable 2000AD comic books which have been a staple of UK magazine shelves for more than 30 years. 


The company has also secured the rights to produce a new line of Fighting Fantasy gamebook apps, including the upcoming Blood of the Zombies by Ian Livingstone, a book that will be released next month to coincide with the series' 30th anniversary.


"I think it’s fair to say that we are on cloud nine at the moment and feel completely privileged to be given the responsibility of such a massive release," Tin Man says on their website, "The best thing about this too, is that it’s just the beginning!"


Both Judge Dredd and Blood of the Zombies will be available for iOS and Android devices, although there is no firm release date as of yet.
