Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Apparently Visceral Games, the guys behind Dead Space and the upcoming brain trauma in video game form Dante's Inferno possibly have a third project on the go: A video game based off the 19th century serial killer Jack the Ripper.
Ok, so Dead Space was their version of resident evil etc and Dante's Inferno is their version of God of War so this would be their version of Hotel Dusk or Heavy Rain or something right? Where you hunt down the killer in some adventure game, finding clues Pheonix Wright style or something? Or like those creepy early parts of Call of Cthulu where it was light on action and heavy on atmosphere. This could be really awesome.
When you think of Jack the Ripper, you think of a psychopathic serial killer right? Well, what if everything we knew about Jack was wrong? What if Jack the Ripper was actually a good person, killing to save other people’s lives?
That’s the Jack our sources tell us you're going to experience in The Ripper. He’s a supernatural slayer protecting people from demons, vampires and other evil monsters. And seeing as how this is Visceral Studios, don’t expect your typical, played-out demons. Instead, imagine a cross between the monsters from Dead Space and Dante’s Inferno. Jack will have an assortment of over-the-top weapons to take on these demons, and we're told gameplay involves a special ability that lets him slow down time, too.
Sure it's still all unconfirmed, but after what Dante's Inferno turned into I'm ready to believe anything when it comes to these guys. Looking forward to the Moby Dick game where Captain Ahab is a cyborg fighting the armies of the sea god Neptune as he tries to wipe out all land-dwellers.
