Press Release: Definitely Not “Game Over”: Dark Maze Studios Releases “Press Start 2 Continue”

CHAMPAIGN, IL – 03/11/2011 – Dark Maze Studios has officially released “Press Start 2 Continue”, the sequel to the videogame comedy “Press Start” which in 2007 was described by Kotaku.com as “a cult classic in the making.” The $14.99 DVD is available at PressStart2.com.

In this film, the world’s most inexplicably accomplished evil sorcerer, Count Vile, has returned from Hades for a new bid at global domination. With original champions Zack and Sam already in his clutches, it’s up to their estranged, ultraviolent comrade Lin-Ku and the bubbly, positive-thinking Princess Xanna to save them – and the world – from disaster.

“Press Start 2 Continue” also adds fan favorite characters from the “Press Start Adventures” animated web series including the sardonic vampire lord Vlad (David S. Humphrey, Sonic Adventure 2 & Jack Keane), sinister succubus Morgan Le Slay, and white-haired assassin Scarthcaroth. Web personalities Noah Antwiler, Stuart Ashen, Lindsey “Z” Briggs, and X-Strike Studios’ Tim Ekkebus & Rory O’Boyle also join the cast.

The DVD includes the following:

  • 2 Filmmaker Commentaries
  • Cast Commentary
  • “Making-of” Featurette
  • “Press Start: Bio Haphazard” Short
  • Illustrated mini-poster insert
Described by Destructoid.com as “the best videogame movie ever made,” the original “Press Start” has gained fans worldwide amongst gamers for its clever writing and spot-on parody, making up for low-budget indie production with geek-tastic laughs and behind-the-scenes dedication.

The online press kit can be found at www.PressStart2.com, including high-res photos, production notes, and the movie’s trailer.
