Stompy Bot secures rights to Locke & Key

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.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
