Tacoma, WA

Cabin 9 Films announced today that Eisner and Harvey award-winning cartoonist, Scott Kurtz, is to join the cast of Gamers 4: Dorkness Falls.

“One of the greatest pleasures of our last 20+ years on the convention circuit,” wrote Writer/Director Matt Vancil on the film’s third Kickstarter Update, “has been getting to know other media creators and gaming celebrities, many of whom we now call friends. We’re thrilled to have Scott join the cast of Dorkness Falls.”

Scott Kurtz is the creator of PvP and Table Titans and played Binwin Bronzebottom in Penny Arcade's Acquisitions Inc., one of the earliest Dungeons & Dragons podcasts. Recently, Scott has ventured into authoring kid-lit with his debut middle-grade novel Table Titans Club.

Gamers 4: Dorkness Falls is the conclusion to the feature-length film trilogy that started with Dorkness Rising (2008), and continued with Hands of Fate (2013). It is seeking $500,000 on Kickstarter through June 29th to fund the production. Visit for more information on the campaign.

Preproduction will begin in Fall 2024, and production in Spring 2025. The film is slated for a December 2026 release.

Cabin 9 Films is part of Matt Vancil’s Bearfoot Media LLC, and is managing the production of Dorkness Falls.

The Gamers: Dorkness Rising was produced by Dead Gentlemen Productions and Epic Level Entertainment, filmed in 2005, with a Gen Con premiere in 2006. Distribution of the film began in 2008. 1,796 people backed a Kickstarter campaign in 2015 to produce a Definitive Edition Blu-Ray of the cult classic.
