Stompy Bot secures rights to punish Locke & Key videogames.



Locke & Key

Digital publisher Stompy Bot Productions has acquired the rights to publish games based on IDW’s Locke & Key comic book series.

Launched in 2007 by Eisner Award-winners Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, Locke & Key has garnered widespread praise. During its six-year run the series earned critical acclaim and numerous awards, twice winning the British Fantasy Award for Best Comic or Graphic Novel.

Chris Ryall, IDW’s chief creative officer and Locke & Key’s editor, said:


“The team at Stompy Bot has a passion for creating high quality games that combine creativity and fan enjoyment. We’re looking forward to seeing how they leverage their expertise to bring the chilling Locke & Key series to gamers worldwide.”

No titles have yet been announced but intended formats include PC, console and mobile.
