Dementium developer launches Cult County Kickstarter

A "rebirth" of the survival horror first-person shooter.

Cult County

Mutant Mudds and Dementium: The Ward developer Renegade Kid has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Cult County, a new survival horror first-person shooter.

The game will feature story-driven gameplay, “memorable” character interactions, and “vulnerable and personalized” melee and firearm combat. It is set in a small town in West Texas “filled with tension, mystery, and scares,” and will feature varied “creepy enemy encounters” and “devious boss battles.”

The Kickstarter’s goal is set at $580,00. Platfoms supported include PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Wii U, PS Vita, and PC via Steam. Due to extra licensing fees for Unity and development hardware, Xbox 360 support will be added if a $640,000 stretch goal is reached.

Cult County was originally revealed as a 3DS game at the Penny Arcade Expo last year. The game has since “grown beyond the scope of 3DS.” Since the studio does “not want to compromise our vision” for the game, the 3DS version was dropped.

“If there is enough interest in seeing Cult County on the 3DS, a Nintendo 3DS stretch goal could be added,” the studio said. “However, it would need to cover the cost of developing a separate game entirely, as we would need to rebuilt the game from scratch with our proprietary 3DS engine.”
