Blood-soaked Camdrome stand spooks revellers at PAX, Team Meat assisting project
Camdrome is a mysterious new horror project in development at an unknown developer. The project came to light by way of a blood-soaked booth at PAX, and some insight from Team Meat, which is assisting the secret outfit.
Eurogamer reports that the Camdrome stand was housed at PAX’s Indie Megabooth areas, and consisted of a monitor covered in fake blood with a webcam on top. The camera wasn’t even plugged in and the screen showed a looping selection of live-action horror clips that ended with a Camdrome logo.
Vlambeer co-founder Rami Ismael organised the Megabooth this year and has stated he doesn’t know how the Camdrome stand got there in the first place. Shove Pro’s creator Teddy Diefenbach was also tweeted at by what appears to be the official Camdrome Twitter feed.
Team Meat’s Tommy Refenes teased Eurogamer by saying that the studio was rumoured to be working on a “mystery game”, which led to further digging on the matter. As it happened, 4 Player Network later discovered that the Camdrome website was registered by Team Meat’s Edmund McMmillen.
Camdrom was also described as a “horror video game to be released this fall by Team Meat, the creators of Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Issac,” over on Doug Sakmann of Backseat Conceptions’ website.
Eurogamer pressed McMillen on the matter and he explained, “We really aren’t involved in making Camdrome. But Tommy [Refenes] helped set up the booth there. We know the dev who is making it and have been helping. We believe in the concept but don’t actually know that much about the project other than its initial incarnation and the booth setup,” he adds. “We are as in the dark as everyone else on the current ARG.”
