Developer Techland is working on a sequel to the popular Dead Rising ; if you didn't already know, it's called Riptide .
But they've got something new in the hopper, too (even though it was spawned from an internally-created weapon mod for Dead Island ). As revealed at the new game's blog , the new title is code-named "Project Hell."
Unsurprisingly, the fresh effort will probably have a lot in common with Techland's previous undead slashing adventure, as the blog says we'll be "breaking through hordes of undead minions." But there will be fantasy-related stuff as well, as the team may be embracing more of a dark action/RPG style. Dare we think ala Demon's Souls and Dark Souls ? It's interesting to note that the underlying theme has roots in medieval times, when religion and the dark arts took center-stage.
We don't know much else about the project, but we're hoping it'll be officially revealed – along with targeted platforms and an estimated release date – some time soon.
