Riese: Kingdom Falling Arrives on

It was back in October 2009 that, thanks to my friend Lord Shaper over at The Furnace, I first came across the steampunk/fantasy adventure webseries Riese. The teaser trailer and promotional images really whetted my appetite and when the series launched the following month I thought it was fantastic.

As the creators of Riese concluded chapter 1 of their story and launched chapter 2 they announced the exciting news of a development/distribution deal for the series that, despite some anticipated - and inevitable - short-term delays would be great news for the longer-term future of the series.

Then last October news arrived that the series - now named Riese: Kingdom Falling - would be broadcast twice-weekly via with an international release following soon after.

For viewers in the UK that moment will soon arrive as have recently announced that they will be premiering Riese: Kingdom Falling on Tuesday 29 March. In anticipation of next weeks premiere have loads of background information, character bios and images from the series along with a new teaser trailer. is proud to present the award winning digital series Riese: Kingdom Falling. The story follows Riese, a wanted princess of the Kingdom of Eleysia that has been overthrown by a powerful society called The Sect. The evil empress Amara has proclaimed Riese a traitor, who must evade her pursuers with nothing but her wits and the help of her wolf companion, Fenrir.

Narrated by Amanda Tapping (Sanctuary), the series also features a well known array of talent including Christine Chatelain (The Bone Collector); Sharon Taylor (Stargate Universe); Ben Cotton (Harper's Island), Allison Mack (Smallville); Ryan Robbins (Caprica); Patrick Gilmore (Stargate Universe); Alessandro Juliani (Battlestar Galactica) and Emilie Ullerup (Sanctuary).
