An upcoming survival-horror game, “Cult County” was announced earlier this week by developer Renegade Kid and it looks awesome. The developer describes the game as a combination of the best parts of “The Walking Dead,” “Silent Hill,” and “Resident Evil.”
“Cult County” is the “rebirth of the survival horror FPS genre, crafted with fan input,”according to Renegade Kid. The developer is using Kickstarter to fund the title’s development, looking for $580,000 USD to bring Cult County to PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One and Wii U.
Originally the game was planned as a 3DS eShop title, but Renegade Kid says the game has “grown beyond the scope” of Nintendo’s handheld system.
“We do not want to compromise our vision for the game,” writes Renegade Kid. “We are excited by the opportunity home consoles and computers offer the game and hope you share our enthusiasm.”
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.”
“Cult County” is planned for a May 2015 release as an episodic series. There is also a special $15 USD early adopter season pass available. The price will increase to $20 USD after the initial allotment is sold out.
