David Denton joins the team as our new concept artist. The super-talented David is currently hard at work creating the various beings that will inhabit the Thanatophobia game. Sculpting these works of art into life is our fantastic new 3D character modeller, Amber Damron.

We've also been receiving plenty of most welcome publicity. After some poking and prodding, the Death Knell Games team gave the first Thanatophobia interviews to Chris Priestman at Indie Game Magazine and Gareth Chadwick of The Sixth Axis.
