Last year at RTX, Rooster Teeth Animation revealed a new show Mecha show titled Gen: Lock. Today, RT’s head of animation Gray G. Haddock told us to buckle in for the hype, because a teaser for the RTAnimation is soon to come.
In the past Rooster Teeth has described the new series, emphasizing diversity, as the following:
“On the losing side of a global culture war, an Experimental Science Unit is pushed to identify a team of young pilots who can control a variety of prototype, next-generation mecha—giant, robotic, weaponized bodies. The recruits will find, however, that their newfound abilities come at no small cost.”
Along with the promise of a teaser soon to come, Rooster Teeth announced a second original show debuting in 2018. Nomad of Nowhere is set to hit RT’s FIRST program on March 2. The story is said to follow a mysterious nomad as his travels across a western wasteland that’s been barren of magic for 100 years. Rooster Teeth animator, Jordan Cwierz, describes the show as being, “two-parts Samurai Jack and True Grit with just a dash of The Lord of the Rings,” I bet now you’re listening.
As a long time Rooster Teeth fan, I always love to see the company branch out into new avenues and see what their creative teams come up with next. Which of the new RTAnimations are you most excited for in 2018? Let us know by dropping a comment or head over to our Discord to join the conversation!
