The video for Cult County begins with Art Director and Co-Founder of Renegade Kid in a barn finding out he can’t make a third Dementium game due to license agreements of yester-year. The minds behind Dementium did go on from this to create Renegade Kid which has brought us such titles as Mutant Mudds Deluxe (our review here), as well as Treasurenauts arriving May 2014. Jools Watsham joins in to explain this and a number of other details regarding the vision for this new title Cult County which will serve as a spiritual successor to the Dementium series (though completely brand new) and has been described by its creators as a game that focuses on horror, loneliness, and our worst fears.
If funded, this game will potentially arrive on PlayStation 4, Windows PC (on Steam), Xbox ONE, Nintendo Wii U, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita. A full documentary of the making of Cult County as well as a version on Xbox 360 could be possible too if certain Stretch Goals are met. Renegade Kid has also brought some social relevance under our noses as well by nodding to the Oculus / FB Buyout recently and seemingly promising that Cult County will remain the property of Renegade Kid so that they can avoid what happened with Dementium (or sub-consciously you might have thought about what people think could happen to Oculus after that buyout).
This is a great game from a very experienced set of developers and is very much well deserving of funding. Those who back the game have a various list of choices regarding donation amount and reward / compensation including copies of the game (so you could think of it as a pre-order), and since this is taking place on Kickstarter none of the money will change hands until Cult County’s goal has been met completely.
