American McGee and Spicy Horse Games, the creative force behind Akaneiro: Demon Hunters as well as American McGee’s Grimm and Crazy Fairies announced today that the Kickstarter for their latest project, OZombie, is now live. OZombie is a narrative-driven action-adventure game in an alternate version of L. Frank Baum’s famous Oz universe.
While the themes and characters draw from all 14 of the Oz books, they are getting the stylistic and artistic touches Spicy Horse has used with titles like Alice: Madness Returns and Akaneiro: Demon Hunters.
OZombie is built around a single-player game with multiplayer available after completing the single-player mode. Multiplayer provides access to a range of player characters and competitive features like raids and tournaments.
OZombie will feature:
-Feature a variety of perspectives and game modes with an emphasis on role-playing, tactical combat, exploration and story telling.
-Be developed using Unity 3D technology
-Be delivered to most platforms Unity3D can target, but initially launch on Linux, Mac, PC (Windows) and latest-gen tablets.
-Be localized for play world-wide (EFIGS and more).
-Support offline single-player mode, though you’ll need to complete a one-time online registration when you first start.
-Contain NO form of DRM.
American McGee aims to raise $950K in the next 41 days, and those interested can back this project up by visiting its Kickstarter page.
