Have you ever seen a 150 mph gnome?
Redmond game company KingX Studios is giving people that opportunity.
To draw attention to its upcoming title “Odd Manor,” the company’s sponsoring NASCAR driver Tayler Malsam in the Camping World Truck Series.
Starting in the series opener at Daytona on Feb. 18, Malsam’s truck will sport “Odd Manor” graphics, including a few gnomes on the truck’s rear panels.
The social-network game will be released this spring on Facebook. KingX describes it as an “enchanting, folkloric adventure transporting people behind the walls of an enigmatic estate to solve a mystery set in a magical garden of gnomes, faeries, charmed plants, and mystical creatures.”
Malsam, a Seattle native and fan of video games, is ready for the gnomes’ company.
“It’s fun to have them along for the ride at Daytona,” he said in the release.
