Gladiotron is an online, interactive, 3D web-comic designed to test the efficacy of leveraging assets created for a 3D comic for reuse in other forms of media around the same intellectual property (IP), in this case a game, animation, and merchandise. The Gladiotron 3D web-comic exhibited advantages over basic storyboarding by increasing speed and efficiency of production between the comic and the game, audience growth potential, and opportunities for audiences’ feedback. This 3D web-comic model also demonstrates an alternative approach for developing video games and developing IPs.
