Firefly alums Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk us all with their series Con Man, so what’s the logical next step after creating a crazy popular show about comic conventions? A game about them, obviously!
In a trailer released on Entertainment Weekly, animated versions of Fillion and Tudyk explain why you need Con Man: The Game. Most of us have been to some sort of convention, and I’m sure at one point or another we’ve all had at least a fleeting thought about starting one very own celebrating our particular brand of geekdom.
Well, forget collecting funds, creating Kickstarters, and figuring out how to get celebrities to stop by, because with Con Man: The Game, you get to create the convention of your dreams. Your goal is to put on the best con you possibly can, so in addition to making it amazing, you also need to remember the little things that make a HUGE difference; things like emptying the garbage cans (seriously, if you’ve been to a convention, you know how gross those can get) before ENORMOUS RATS invade the event, making sure you’ve got plenty of bathrooms for con-goers, and keeping the food tasty and fresh (nobody wants to get food poisoning while they’re in full-armored cosply, y’all).
Oh, and you also have to use some of your specially-skilled superfans to help fight off occasional alien incursions. You know, normal convention stuff.
In addition to Fillion and Tudyk, the game also features some of our faves like Felicia Day and Joss Whedon, among others.
The best part? Con Man: The Game is available on iTunes or Google Play for free. Who knew making a comic convention could be so easy, right?

July 23rd, 2016 Comments Off on Castle’s Nathan Fillion on Not Saying a ‘Proper’ Goodbye, the Season 9 Plan Articles, Castle
Nathan Fillion has post-Castle plans, for what typically would have been his first day back at the ABC series’ set. And those plans are pretty…. hairy.
Speaking with Michael Ausiello at TVLine’s Comic-Con studio presented by ZTE — where he and Alan Tudyk were promoting Con Man, their web series about a sci-fi actor’s adventures on the convention circuit — Fillion questioned if there was any way to have a “proper send-off” (versus down-to-the-wire cancellation) for a series, after eight years.
“[I’ve worked] with amazing people that I love so very, very much… [and] I’ll miss them dearly,” the actor said. “But its been eight years since I haven’t had a plan” for that first Monday after Comic-Con, when production on Castle traditionally resumes.
