Stephen Downey Interprets Magic Mike in Comic Style Game App
Irish Comicbook artist Stephen Downey (Torchwood/Jennifer Wilde) draws hunky muscly men, and this time they’re not superheroes, but males strippers. Together with comic podcaster Scott Grandison (Comicbook Outsiders), they designed, developed and published Magic Mike: The Moves app through their Outsider Games studio to coincide with Lionsgate’s Home Entertainment release of the Channing Tatum movie.
The comicbook style art really appealed to Lionsgate UK, who wanted a fun, visually interesting game that would appeal to a mass audience. The app is based around an ‘endless dancer’ game, for which, in true comic artist fashion, Stephen had to draw every angle and move that the exotic dancers make.
Magic Mike: The Moves can be downloaded FREE on
Also available on Kindle Fire and the Amazon App Store.
Magic Mike was co-produced with Northern Ireland Screen as part of their Games on Film initiative, which also included the free Grabbers game app by Iglu Media/Billygoat Entertainment: http://www.
