Thursday, September 29, 2016 — CON MAN: THE GAME has released new information about a major game update coming out today. In addition to the hilarious and addictive gameplay already highly rated on iOS and Google Play, a new convention manager’s office and nerdy collectibles have been added to the game to give players even more to enjoy!
Collectibles can be acquired through acquiring con bags and completing certain tasks. Items that you can digitally collect include things such as Jack Moore’s (Nathan Fillion) bottle of sweat, Wray Nerely’s (Alan Tudyk) action figure, Jerry Lansing’s (Nolan North) mocap suit, and even a Brown”ish” Jacket in homage to one of Fillion and Tudyk’s most beloved shows. Each collectible belongs to a series group and once all in that group has been collected, a special convention buff will unlock. All collectibles will be displayed in special cases in the manager’s office.
The convention Manager’s Office will be the place where players can admire their collection as well as monitor their progression towards certain rewards and buffs. The office will be staffed by an animated Wray Nerely.
CON MAN: THE GAME is the most recent expansion of the Con Man universe and joins the wildly popular Con Man Season 1 and recently announced Season 2 which will be released on Comic-Con HQ. It also joins the Spectrum comic book series and motion comic released earlier this year.
ABOUT THE CON MAN SERIES: A lighthearted take on the personalities, luminaries, comic book stores, and characters Alan and Nathan have run into during their years in the sci-fi community and convention circuit, while telling the story of a guy learning to love and embrace his fans. CON MAN centers around the post-show life of Wray Nerely (Tudyk), the pilot and co-star of SPECTRUM, a sci-fi series which was cancelled before it’s time and eventually became a cult classic beloved by fans. Wray’s good friend, Jack Moore (Fillion) starred in the series and has gone on to become a major celebrity, while Wray continued to struggle to find his big break. While Jack enjoys the life of an A-lister, Wray tours the sci-fi circuit as a guest of conventions, comic book stores, and lots of pop culture events. The show will explore all the weird and crazy things that happen to Wray along the way, while telling the story of a guy learning to love and embrace his fans. Season 1 of CON MAN is currently available on Comic-Con HQ (www.Comic-ConHQ.com). Season 2 arrives this November.
