[VAMS id="4dUDtTh0N7Jkk" bc="1660695813001" url="collider-game-trailer-4dUDtTh0N7Jkk"]

Collider is a new multi-media sci-fi project from beActive, spanning comics (the first issue of which we present in full below), online games (video trailer above), a live-action webseries (which begins next week) and more.

The basic overall plot combining all these various elements is that six disparate people are transported to a post-apocalyptic future, and they need to find a way to get back to the present to save mankind - and their own lives. And at the centre of this mystery is the Large Hadron Collider…

On October 1st 2012 Peter Ansay breaks into CERN lab to gain access to the Collider and sabotage it, preventing any future experiments. But something goes terribly wrong and he is transported to 2018 by a wormhole to a world destroyed by natural disasters and at war with the Unknown. He wakes up in a strangely familiar place, convinced he’s somehow been there before. You are now in the future, “trapped” inside what seems to be a hotel. Outside, the atmosphere is unlivable and anyone who ventures out disappears in the shadows, taken by the Unknown.

The comic is written by Mike Garley, who is also currently working on an antholgy comic with James Moran ( Doctor Who , Severence , Girl Number 9 , Cockneys Vs Zombies ). It was Garley who came up with the idea of the comics having different artists to create the present and future worlds in the comics. He also reveals that while the future sequences had to fit in with the overall plot line created for the project, he had more freedom to explore the backgrounds of the six main characters in the flashback scenes.
