Dead Island Team Reveals New IP, Dubbed "Project Hell"
Developer Techland is working on a sequel to the popular Dead Rising; if you didn't already know, it's called Riptide.
But they've got something new in the hopper, too (even though it was spawned from an internally-created weapon mod for Dead Island). As revealed at the new game's blog, the new title is code-named "Project Hell."
Unsurprisingly, the fresh effort will probably have a lot in common with Techland's previous undead slashing adventure, as the blog says we'll be "breaking through hordes of undead minions." But there will be fantasy-related stuff as well, as the team may be embracing more of a dark action/RPG style. Dare we think ala Demon's Souls and Dark Souls? It's interesting to note that the underlying theme has roots in medieval times, when religion and the dark arts took center-stage.
We don't know much else about the project, but we're hoping it'll be officially revealed - along with targeted platforms and an estimated release date - some time soon.
