Renegade Kid Launches Kickstarter For ‘Cult County’

Dementium developer Renegade Kid is asking for $580,000 on Kickstarter to fund their “slow burn” survival horror game Cult County. It was originally supposed to be a Nintendo 3DS game, but seems as if that platform has since taken a backseat to essentially every other one out there, including PC, Mac, Linux, PS3, PS4, Vita, Wii U and Xbox One. If its stretch goals are met, it will also be ported to Xbox 360.

The developer offered an explanation for this change on the game’s Kickstarter page, where they wrote Cult County has grown beyond the scope of the 3DS, and we do not want to compromise our vision for the game.” More after the jump.

Cult County is an all-new first-person survival horror game that blends the episodic story-telling of The Walking Dead with the classic tension-filled exploration and action of Silent Hill and Resident Evil, presenting an opportunity for fans to help a veteran team produce a new experience that is fresh, exciting, and scary!”

You can learn all about Cult County on its Kickstarter.

In related news, if you’ve been waiting for a new Dementium game, it looks like that won’t be happening. They don’t go into detail, but apparently, certain “contractual obligations” are keeping them from returning to the series.

    Praise the Lord!!! So great news: No more Demoentium HD… I like NDS Dementium games, but this shitty port earned one achievement only: definied a new sub-genre in horror gaming: The Trots…

      Dementium II HD wasn’t great, but it also wasn’t ported by Renegade Kid (Memetic Games is responsible for that). ;)

        Yes boss, my mistake. Memetic Games is an affiliate of Digital Tribe and they are responsible for Dementium HD crap.

          My apologies for this to Renegade Kid :)
