Project Hell revealed by Dead Island developer, Techland
Dead Island developer Techland has announced a new FPP hack n' slash game, codenamed Project Hell. In a blog posted earlier this week, the small team created inside Techland has shared some of the details and inspirations behind the new game.
Set in a "dark fantasy setting", Project Hell "started inconspicuously with an internal weapon mod for Dead Island". The mod, which was created by one of the developers, was considered "a proof that chopping monsters frozen by magic spells using two-handed swords is brutally fun and addictive."
The team behind Project Hell stressed their independence in developing the game.
"Our main goal is to make a game we can all enjoy playing so don’t expect unicorns and fairies – we prefer breaking through hordes of undead minions only to slaughter their devilish and loathsome masters in a bloody boss-fight," they wrote. "To achieve that we’ll use our experience already gained in game development and enhanced technology from Dead Island. We believe that we can make something really unique and thrilling and share it with you. Keep your fingers crossed."
And in what could be considered the most shocking announcement on the blog, this project won't be funded by Kickstarter.
