Story: Mad God starts as the mysterious masked assassin descents amidst the ruined city. The labyrinth below is filled with freakish denizens. Each location the Assassin travels to bringing a new horror from below.

Thoughts on Mad God

Mad God is Phil Tippett’s pet project taking us into a nightmare world. Where we discover something more disturbing around every corner out character goes through. The stop motion animation creature creation, the world building we leave you jaw dropped. The attention to detail placed upon Mad God.

When it comes to the journey, it will be the driving side of the story. As we see how the Assassin is only following a path, not getting involved in what is going on around him. As this path will be the one that leads the way for his desire to get into the new world. Mad God will make you want to look away, but will make you not want to miss a thing.
