Renegade Kid plans to return to their survival horror roots in Cult County, provided their Kickstarter goal of $580,000 is reached. Cult County will be developed for a myriad of home consoles, among them the Wii U. According to the Kickstarter page:
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!
Based in Austin, TX, Renegade Kid is the studio responsible for Dementium: The Ward and Dementium II for the Nintendo DS, as well as fantastic 2-D platformer Mutant Mudds and the upcoming Moon Chronicles for the Nintendo 3DS. Fans have been hoping for a Dementium III, but due to “contractual ties from the past,” that won’t be happening. However, Renegade Kid is optimistic about Cult County and its future.
