Renegade Kid, the developers of Moon and the Dementium series, are looking to go back to the survival horror genre with Cult County, an episodic first-person title influenced by games like The Walking Dead, Silent Hill and Resident Evil.
The studio launched a Kickstarter today with the hopes of getting the project funded. They’re looking to raise $580,000 over the next 29 days. If they meet their goal, Cult County will be guaranteed a launch for Wii U, Steam (PC/Mac/Linux), Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita.
Fan input appears to be something Renegade Kid really wants to make use of during development. They’re offering backers the opportunity to vote on various elements like enemy designs, prop designs, sound effects and anything else they’d like input on.
Cult County was first announced as a 3DS title, but it apparently outgrew its original concept to the point where Renegade Kid decided to just move development over to consoles, PC and the Vita.
A 3DS version hasn’t been ruled out entirely, but the developers say that they would have to raise enough to cover the costs of developing an entirely new game on top of the Kickstarter goal.
Armature Studio, the developers of Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate for the 3DS and Vita, are porting the game over to the Wii U, 360, PS3 and PC as Arkham Origins Blackgate – Deluxe Edition.
The game will feature several notable improvements over its handheld predecessor, including better visuals, new maps, new skins, new enemies and more difficulty options.
Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – Deluxe Edition is set to launch on April 1 in North America and April 2 in Europe.

Versus matches in Puyo Puyo Tetris are fast. Scary fast.
In the latest trailer, you can see how junk blocks translate between games, and it seems like the amount sent for tetrises and chains is really high.
If this footage is anything to go by, a decent combo early on can end a match in seconds.
Puyo Puyo Tetris comes out in Japan on February 6 for the Wii U, 3DS, PS3 and PS Vita.No comments

The fourth game in the Shantae series will now be coming to the Wii U, PS3, PS4, VITA/VITA TV, 360, Xbox One and Steam.
Just because they’ve hit their goal early doesn’t mean there isn’t any reason to keep funding the project. There’s still 10 days to raise enough money to fund additional content like bonus chapters, alternate costumes and the ability to play as Shantae’s rival, Risky Boots.No comments
