Dead Island dev’s next game is Project Hell

Tuesday, 28th August 2012 07:01 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Dead Island developer Techland has created a second team to work on a new fantasy action title currently codenamed Project Hell.

According to the project’s debut blog post, the game grew out of a weapons mod for Dead island built by one of TechLand’s team.

Described as an “FPP hack and slash game in a dark fantasy setting”, Project Hell is being developed by a small internal team, independently.

“We won’t be asking for your money on Kickstarter,” designer and project manager Marcin Kruczkiewicz said.

“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.”

The team has released a couple of pieces of concept art; check ‘em out below. No release date or platform information at this early stage.

Thanks, EvilAvatar.

    “…and enhanced technology from Dead Island.”

    I hope by that he means they’ve significantly improved upon it. The constant stuttering in the PS3 version made me lose it some days, and the characters looked like lifeless plastic dolls. Still a fairly beautiful game though

    Their latest Chrome 5 is defiantly inferior to Chrome 4 which had better textures,lightning,animation and overall much better than Chrome 5. Their Chrome 3 used to rival Cry Engine back in the day. Some of the great objects textures still exist in that game.
