Senscape has announced that the highly anticipated horror adventure game, Asylum, has joined the ranks of Kickstarter projects. After four years of production, the Senscape team aims to fund the final lap of development with the help of the community.
Inspired by the writings of H. P. Lovecraft and building upon the success of cult hit Scratches, Asylum has recently enjoyed a new burst of popularity following a successful campaign on Steam Greenlight, after which it became the first game from Argentina to be Greenlit by Valve. Similarly, it happens to be the first game ever on Kickstarter from the country.
Featuring some of the most unusual Kickstarter rewards yet, backers have the chance to become permanent denizens of the Hanwell Mental Institute, the massive virtual asylum where the game takes place, by, among others, appearing as dead inmates in the morgue or being themselves residents of their very own cell.
Project leader and designer Agustín Cordes said:
“The number one request from fans has been that they want to become part of this engrossing setting we have created. And we have listened.”
Asylum’s Kickstarter aims to raise $100,666 in 28 days.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
