Techland, the developers behind Call of Juarez and Dead Island has had details about their newest project, Project Hell. The game is actually based on a Dead Island mod created by one of the developers, MZM, that incorporated ice magic and two-handed swords into the game. Techland decided to put together a smaller team within itself to explore the opportunities for what could be done with an expanded version of the mod. As said by one of the team, Kruq, the game will feature plenty of zombie killing action, so don’t expect some of the typical fantasy tropes.
Kruq’s statement is below:
“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. 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 one more thing – we won’t be asking for your money on Kickstarter “
