LOS ANGELES - Dec. 21, 2022 - PRLog -- 1989-1992, Derek Frost developed and trademarked 3rd World comic book story to the world later working with Andrew Cosby, before he became a successful comic book and screen writer, creator of such shows as Eureka, 2 Guns Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, and the screenplay for the latest Hellboy with David Harbour and Milla Jovovich.
In 1997 moved from Honduras to Los Angeles and was hired within 3 months by Ron Millar and James Anhalt from the newly exited Blizzard Entertainment, who had started their new business developing video games. First hired for their new company called Redline Games of Costa Mesa, California as their Art Director and later Producer. Shortly after learned that they were hoping to create a game like Syndicate and the role-playing game Shadow Run but needed a new concept to overlay on top of what Ron Millar was designing for the game play. A new world was needed, and I already had one. Being bright eyed and bushy tailed agreed to transfer the trademark for 3rd World over to Redline and Activision with hopes of making a kick-ass game based on more than a decade's work was finally coming to fruition. "It was the most exciting professional experience in my life. Just moved to Los Angeles, hired by the best in the video game industry working with the biggest publisher, Activision, and they want to make a game called 3rd World using the characters that I had created a decade earlier for a comic book venture." Finally after 2 years of drama, it got shelved. Two decades later its free and clear!
