Whatever else can be said about 2016, things got weird. They appear to be remaining weird as the new year rises from the ooze to menace us all, and we plan to embrace the change by embracing the strange. From atomic space weaponry to fire breathing stage puppets to glow in the dark guitar picks, it appears that even now, our 2017 is lining up to be a busy and beastly one. As we clear off the Darkvale workbench and sweep up the embarrassing ashes of former projects gone wrong, we look forward to some of the new directions we can anticipate in 2017. We’ve added 3D printing to our menu of services, and almost none of our tests of the new equipment have ended in tears or bloodshed, much to our boredom. We are also preparing to build a Darkvale Studios showroom at the Iron Robot Films facility in Sanford, so the public will finally be able to experience our props and Emporium wares in person, without having to deal with our shady warehouse staff or any of the ensuing police paperwork. It appears that our mural department already has a few clients lined up, so expect our online galleries to keep growing as our portfolio does, and check back often. Thank you all for a productive and creatively challenging 2016, and we anticipate bigger and stranger ventures on the horizon. We'll even try to keep them legal this year, if the money's right.
