has launched a Kickstarter campaign
for Death in Candlewood
, an open-world psychological FPS heavily influenced by the gothic fiction of Edgar Allan Poe and classic horror films. The game plunges its player into the darkest corners of 1940s America and spans a single night in the life of Ray Dune, a doctor whose relationship with reclusive psychiatrist Lester Caravan has reached a deadly crisis point. When his vulnerable adopted son Rizzo mysteriously disappears, Dune is forced to act. Navigating the dark paths of Candlewood Mountains and a terrifying onslaught of inhuman assailants, Dune sets out on a desperate bid to save himself and his son from the bloody machinations of a madman.
Along the way you can traverse the expansive 10kmē of game-world in any way you like. You can drive cars and motorbikes, swim through deep waters, use uncommon weapons and face uncommon enemies as you unravel a dark and twisted romance.
Death in Candlewood is scheduled to be available in Spring 2015 for PC - eight screenshots
