From a media release:
Loins Girded? Blood Mop Ready? Just Launched: First Ever TODD & THE BOOK OF PURE EVIL Online Game “Descent into Crowley Heights”
- Jason Mewes (Jimmy) acts as voice and guide for the online and social media game
- Season 2 of the Gemini Award Winning show premieres Oct. 30 at 10 p.m. ET on SPACE and SPACE HD
In pure evil preparation for the Season 2 launch of the original scripted series TODD & THE BOOK OF PURE EVIL on
SPACE and SPACE HD, the twisted minds behind the show have created a new online game. “Descent into Crowley Heights” unleashes more of the Book’s evil power on computer screens at toddandthebookofpureevil.com and Facebook pages.
“Descent into Crowley Heights” is a web-based, side-scrolling game that takes players through the world of TODD & THE BOOK OF PURE EVIL, playing as one of the gang members from the series with characteristic weapons. The game utilizes the well-known locations, enemies, and a slew of monsters featured on the program. Each player is taken through five bloody levels on their mission to try to capture the Book of Pure Evil. The art direction is representative of the rich texture and tongue-in-cheek style from the TODD & THE BOOK OF PURE EVIL television series.
“Descent into Crowley Heights” leverages cast audio, clips and of course the attitude that viewers have come to know and love. The game guide takes the form of Todd’s mentor, Jimmy (Jason Mewes), with his typical crude approach to advice. A variety of mini game challenges are also available on Facebook as well as an unlockable character to play once the user finds the code. Hot off a Gemini Award win for Best Ensemble Cast in a Comedy Series, TODD & THE BOOK OF PURE EVIL debuted as one of the highest-rated premieres for a SPACE original series last year and continues to gain momentum. Following an amazing run on SPACE, Season 1 was the most-watched Canadian program on The Comedy Network this summer among all key adult and male adult demos.
The first season’s gory goodness can also currently be found on MuchMusic, Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET. Viewers in the U.S. made a pact with the devil when the first season of TODD began airing on the horror channel FEARnet in August. The series returns to SPACE and SPACE HD with brand new bloody hilarious episodes Sunday, Oct. 30 at 10 p.m. ET.
