On Monday, 2nd Studio launched a crowdfunding campaign on Fig to raise $65,000 for its new comic-inspired indie horror game, Jazon and the Dead. The gaming studio stated Jazon and the Dead has been in development for more than three years and it combines top-down 3D shooting with puzzle solving, a player-driven story, and of course, the battling of zombies.
The game’s story reads:
“Jazon and the Dead is heavily inspired by old horror and B-movies (Night of the Living Dead and Braindead), with visuals influenced by comic book artists such as Mike Mignola, Charlie Adlard and Frank Miller. As the game starts, Jazon wakes up disoriented in the restroom of a bar and he doesn’t remember a thing. As he leaves the bar, he finds a ruined world ruled by zombies and scumbags. As Jazon travels across the wasteland, he must discover his past to save the future. Along the way he meets Zoey, a wasteland veteran who just wants to forget about her history. Together they visit the oracle in the mountains, who foresees a prophecy leading them on an epic odyssey to save humanity from complete annihilation.”
Jazon and the Dead was created by creative director Nikki Starostka, technical director Dennis Jensen and programmer Kasper Mikkelsen of 2nd Studio, with a script by Michael Valeur (writer of Overdose and Blackout). Funds from the campaign will be used to develop the game for both PC and Mac. Those who back the project will receive various rewards, including digital game copy, digital wallpaper, digital/printed comic book/art book, digital soundtrack, name in credits, and more. The game is set to be delivered in late 2017. The campaign is set to close on December 1st.
