Osprey Games has announced that Judge Dredd illustrators Rufus Dayglo and Dan Cornwell are working on the Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth card game, providing specially commissioned, full-colour artwork for the game.

Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth is an immersive sci-fi western based on The Lost Expedition, the best-selling card game by Peer Sylvester. Players must lead a team of Judges against dinosaurs, mutants, and the Cursed Earth itself to hunt down a dangerous fugitive, before a gang of criminals can get their hands on him. As they scour the wastelands, the team will encounter a host of threats that will push their resources and abilities to their limits.

On an impossible journey through radioactive hell, can even the Judges survive the Cursed Earth?

Rufus is a self-confessed 2000 AD superfan, and made his Judge Dredd debut in 1998. Since then he has worked extensively with 2000 AD and the Judge Dredd Megazine, with his art also featured in publications by Image Comics, IDW Comics, DC Vertigo, and more.

Duncan Molloy, Games Developer at Osprey Games, commented, “Rufus and Dan have been a joy to work with, bringing that classic Dredd feel to the game. I think fans of Dredd’s world will love what they’ve done with the place.”

A spokesman for 2000 AD said: “Rufus is well-known to our legions of fans and Dan is already making a name for himself drawing the new adventures of the ultimate lawman of the future – they’ve both brought new life to some of the classic locations and characters we all know and love from the past 41 years!”
