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.
