The creators of Dementium, Moon Chronicles and Mutant Mudds have announced their latest project, survival-horror game Cult County. You may remember that Renegade Kid were teasing a Kickstarter project - well this is the project in question.
Developer Renegade Kid describes the game as bringing together aspects of The Walking Dead, Silent Hill and Resident Evil. Cult County is the "rebirth of the survival horror FPS genre, crafted with fan input," as the developer states.
Cult County was originally planned as a 3DS eShop title but Renegade Kid says the game has "grown beyond the scope" of Nintendo's handheld system. There is still some hope for a 3DS version of Cult County though: "If there is enough interest in seeing Cult County on the 3DS, a Nintendo 3DS stretch goal could be added," writes Renegade Kid. "However, it would need to cover the cost of developing a separate game entirely, as we would need to rebuild the game from scratch with our proprietary 3DS engine."
The developer is using Kickstarter to fund the title's development, and is looking for $580,000 USD to bring Cult County to PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One and Wii U. It is currently planned for a May 2015 release and is an episodic series. Early Kickstarter backers will get a special $15 season pass but the price will increase to $20 afterwards.
