Ray’s the Dead heads back to Kickstarter

Story-driven action adventure game seeking $30,000.

Ray's the Dead

Ragtag Studio has taken Ray’s the Dead, its story-driven action adventure game for PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, and Linux, back to Kickstarter after shutting down funding in May last year.

The developer is seeking $30,000 to complete development on the upcoming title, which “features fast-paced combat akin to Pikmin and Overlord, the high level adventure of The Legend of Zelda, and the off beat humor of Stubbs the Zombie.”

Players will resurrect fallen enemies and use their abilities (there are five types) to fight and solve puzzles, and experience parallel stories (the present day tale of Ray as a zombie, and the story of his life as a human) in a 1980s inspired setting with music from people who’ve worked on games like Shovel Knight and Double Dragon. The developers themselves are industry vets who’ve had hands in Thief: Deadly Shadows, Halo Wars, and Stubbs the Zombie.
