Say Hello to Ol’ Chief Woodenhead
Indie outfit DreadXP, in affiliation with AMC Networks and Cartel Leisure, has introduced that it has begun the event of a model new online game based mostly on the long-lasting horror anthology collection Creepshow. Platforms or a launch window weren’t introduced.
The brand new sport has been impressed by the TV collection presently airing on horror community Shudder, which is itself styled after a trilogy of comically darkish films written and produced by writer Stephen King and late director George A. Romero. Whereas horror anthology movies have been launched in abundance over the previous 50 years, the unique Creepshow (1982) continues to be thought-about maybe one of many style’s best examples — even when the sequels are the very epitome of the regulation of diminishing returns.
Very similar to the movies and TV collection, the Creepshow sport will likely be an anthology, that includes self-contained tales that can apparently span all kinds of tones and genres. Creepshow‘s trademark shock & gore ways will likely be in full impact, as will its delightfully naughty comedic tone. Darkstone Digital’s Brian Clarke will function artistic director, spearheading a number of builders’ efforts to convey a singular twisted story to the compilation. A enjoyable experimental idea, I’m certain you’ll agree.
Creepshow represents one in all a number of retro-themed horror titles presently within the works. Gun Interactive is presently arduous at work on an asymmetrical multiplayer title based mostly upon Tobe Hooper’s seminal 1974 movie The Texas Chain Noticed Bloodbath whereas, extra just lately, Teravision Video games revealed it was making an analogous title based mostly upon the dopey 1988 launch Killer Klowns from Outer House. I’m all for this return to the golden style that offers me lifeblood, in fact I’m, I simply ask that these video games be, y’know, good?
Creepshow is presently in improvement at DreadXP.
