William Joyce

A Gothic adventure video game is under development by Oscar-winning Moonbot Studios in Shreveport. Company officials have launched an online crowd-sourcing fundraiser through Kickstarter. They aim to raise $750,000, along with grassroots buzz from gamers. The game, “The Golem,” will be created entirely in-house by Moonbot’s 50 employees. At a Monday news conference, principal Brandon Oldenburg said the project was on the back burner for a couple years.

The wait is almost over for the picture book that originally inspired William Joyce’s Academy Award-winning short film The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.  Bill Beckett talks with William Joyce about the release of the BOOK and a new iPhone and iPad AP for the book. A Book signing will take place tonight at 6:00 p.m.

Reminiscent of an old-time ticker-tape parade, confetti rained down on Shreveport as hundreds of people lined several downtown blocks to celebrate Moonbot Studios' Academy Award.
