Alan Moore hints at making video game

Legendary comic book writer Alan Moore has long sought to distance himself from adaptations of his creations, which include such wonders as Watchmen, V for Vendetta, From Hell, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. However, he's now taking the bull by the horns with a transmedia project which might include a video game.

The revelation came during a Q&A at an event celebrating his fine magazine Dodgem Logic last night in London, where Moore was asked if he had considered making video games.

Answering in a roundabout sort of way, the magician explained his stance on adaptations. He scoffed at the idea of making his comics into movies, saying they were written as comics and "the clue was in the word 'comic.'" Unfortunately, companies owning the rights were more keen on it all. Moore played no part in the movie adaptations of his comics, and avoided watching them. He's famously asked for his name to be removed from credits and takes no money for himself, insisting it instead goes to the comics' artists.

However, Moore revealed that he is now looking at a project created with a number of different mediums in mind. While it's evidently not settled yet, he said there may be "possibly some surprising stuff happening in the next 12 months"

"You didn't hear it from me," Moore added.

Alan Moore's work has largely avoided being made into video games, save for a few low-key and forgettable movie tie-ins like Watchmen: The End is Nigh and Constantine.
