Felicia Day has been teasing a #mysteryproject on Twitter recently, giving names of people with whom she's working. This morning she has revealed the contents of the #mysteryproject, which is Dragon Age: Redemption, a six-episode web series to launch later this year.
According to USA Today, Day has created an original story around Tallis, an elven assassin. As to the personality behind the character? Day states:
Tallis is headstrong, she fights dirty, and she has a really sarcastic sense of humor. I wanted to bring a modern sensibility to a fantasy character in a fantasy world.
The plot will revolve around Tallis going on a quest so as to capture a renegade mage. Naturally, in a world like Dragon Age, this means grabbing a few companions, which may prove tricky, admits Day.
As to the fact that it's a web series? Day feels strongly that everyone with whom she worked sees it as a challenge, rather than a hindrance. The goal seems to push what both video game adaptations and web series can accomplish. The list of other people involved includes Peter Winther as the director, John Bartley as cinematographer, Thom Williams as stunt coordinator (there are apparently both stunts and combat scenes), and Greg Aronowitz on production design. So far she's revealed one fellow actor on Twitter, Doug Jones.
USA Today also had an interview with Felicia Day, concerning her gaming habits and favorites that further illuminates why she wanted to produce this web series in Fereldan, in particular.
So far details are somewhat scarce. It is to release this summer. As to whether it will appear on XBL, PSN, or available to all in an online capacity (or various mixtures thereof)? Nothing has been firmly announced.
