Fantastic Transmedia Book: Dinocalypse Now



Dinocalypse Now takes you on a wild ride through the crazy, pulp-style world of Evil Hat Production’s Spirit of the Century. It’s an imaginative tall tale, where gorillas are masterminds and time travel portals are real. You won’t be able to guess what’ll pop from the pages next.

Spirit of the Century is a Role Playing Game, and Dinocalypse Now is Evil Hat Production’s first move into fiction. And it’s transmedia venture is quite a success. Because the story is already in motion, the world is so vital and detailed that not a word was wasted on world building–it had already been built. Of course, that’s also due to the incredible writing by Chuck Wendig, who flawlessly captured the essence of a fun adventure romp with beloved and diverse characters that everyone loves in an RPG.

The synopsis:



When the Century Club is called in to prevent the assassination of FDR, it’s just another day on the job—but what they discover puts not just the President, but the entire world in jeopardy.

With psychic dinosaurs taking over Manhattan and beyond, it’s up to Sally Slick, Jet Black, Mack Silver, and the other Centurions to save humanity—from extinction!


This is a quick read, not because it’s short but because from the very first page the characters are in dire peril and you have to keep reading in order to see how they’ll get out of their scrape. The characters were my favorite part–from the love triangle between Sally, Jet, and Mack, to Jet and Mack’s constant ribbing, to the fascinating Professor Khan, to the mysterious Amelia–they came to life on every page. The prose was rich and the dialogue witty, which matches the noir 1920’s style.

I’m looking forward to the next part of this transmedia series, and can’t to see what’s next in the Spirit of the Century Universe.
