Although Prime Video’s animated series Invincible focuses on Steven Yeun’s titular teenage superhero, the first season highlighted other young, more experienced heroes who can show Invincible the ropes. One of those characters was Atom Eve (Gillian Jacobs), who is getting a little character boost ahead of the show. the second season. Not only does she now have a standalone episode centered around her origins, she’s also starring in her own video game.
Games with terrible attitude’ Unbreakable Gifts: Atom Eve is billing itself as “the first original Invincible game,” as is a visual novel centered on Eva as she juggles being an ordinary girl and a member of the Teen Squad. Similar to other visual novels, the player makes choices that shape the course of the story – which, as noted by the trailer, is based on the comics created by Kirkman, Ryan Ottley and Cory Walker, rather than the show. This is important to note since the mobile game recently revealed by Ubisoft, Unbreakable: Saving the globe, it seems to just be doing its own thing.
With these two Invincible titles, another Kirkman comic has entered the video game space. the walking dead which he co-created with Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard, has had a number of games over the years, the most famous of the bunch being the multi-season one. Telltale’s The Walking Dead series. The last major release from that franchise was the VR game Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners 2 by late 2022. We probably won’t get a VR Invincible game, but it’s doubtful that things will end up in a mobile-RPG and visual novel, especially since the show looks set to go on for a while.
Unbreakable Gifts: Atom Eve will be released on Steam later this year. The second season of Invincible The show will premiere on November 3rd on Prime Video.
