Rooster Teeth continue their animation hot streak

Rooster Teeth have announced some brand new animated shows to join their existing slate of hugely popular shows. Alongside the sixth season of RWBY, the team will be launching the robot-tastic show 'gen:LOCK' and a western themed adevnture show called 'Nomad of Nowhere'. Here's some info on the new shows:

Nomad of nowhere

This is a brand new show and is about: "a mysterious nomad traverses a western wasteland—but a price on his head sends him on the run from captors and bounty hunters, who all want to score big when they bring in the world’s last magical being.

Jordan Cwierz, director of Nomad of Nowhere spoke to Collider about the new show:


"Today we announced a new show coming to Rooster Teeth Animation, a 2D show called Nomad of Nowhere. Whenever we choose to make a new show, we try to make it something fresh and different from things we’ve done in the past, and Nomad is no exception. It’s a western/fantasy mash-up about a mysterious nomad traversing a western wasteland that hasn’t seen magic in 100 years. But now there’s a price on his head, and he’s gonna have to avoid bounty hunters and captors who all want to score big when they bring in the world’s last magical being. Think of it as two-parts Samurai Jack and True Grit with just a dash of The Lord of the Rings.

There’s something for everyone in Nomad of Nowhere; we’ll be telling an epic tale filled with fun new characters, with plenty of humor and light-hearted moments to go alongside it. We’ve developed a beautiful art style to showcase the unique setting of Nowhere: an unforgiving and harsh landscape home to fantastic creatures and a diverse cast of characters. And of course, our kickass animation team is going to make it the best looking 2D show you’ll ever see. Needless to say, I’m excited for everyone to see it. So who is the mysterious Nomad? You’ll have to wait and see. We’ll be teasing more details as we get closer to the release in the spring. Until then, get hyped for a new RT Animation show!"

gen:LOCK

This is a futuristic show about giant robots (we're on board). According to Rooster Teeth this is what the show is all about:

"On the losing side of a global war, Earth’s last free society recruits a diverse team of young pilots to control the next-generation of mecha—giant, weaponized robot bodies. These daring recruits will find, however, that their newfound abilities come at no small cost."
