John Layman and Rob Guillory have licensed CHEW to IDW Games, which will produce a line of tabletop games for “fans to sink their teeth into.”* Chew has an animated series in the works as well. The series is about detective Tony Chu who can solves crimes by eating things associated with the crimes.
The CHEW game line will feature a smorgasbord of play options from board to card to dice games, each title being a stand-alone experience designed to whet fans’ appetites, whether they be a gaming novice or a connoisseur. IDW Games will be tapping top game designing talent to develop each game in the series, and Layman and Guillory will stay involved on the creative side to ensure the look and feel of each game is in line with the highly stylized, quirky world they’ve created.
The games will hit stores in 2015.
