16-bit Evil Dead RPG not real, damn well should be

First the good news: OMG Evil Dead RPG! Now the bad: It’s not a real thing.

The above screens are the work of London-based pixel artist Gary J Lucken, who goes by the name Army of Trolls. Lucken posted the mock-up screens on his portfolio Web site, which got me thinking that this is a thing that needs to happen. Now.

There’s been a handful of Evil Dead games sent to market, including a Commodore 64 title released in the 80s. With the popularity of platforms like the iPhone, I can’t think of a better time than now for the world to get its 16-bit-style Evil Dead role-playing game.

I know, right!?!?
