I’ve mentioned the rookie effort of the newly founded Hinterland Studios before on the blog. The team of industry veterans formerly of Volition, BioWare, Ubisoft Montreal, Relic and Riot Games has come together to work on first-person survival game The Long Dark.
The game has now entered its final week of fundraising on Kickstarter and the team at Hinterland has finally released their first piece of gameplay footage to drum up support for their campaign.
Now that Kickstarter has opened up their crowdfunding platform to projects based in Canada, we’ve seen a massive influx of groups looking for money to make projects real. The one that has piqued my interest is a new game from a new indie studio based out in BC.
Hinterland Studio has brought together a core team that includes developers whose previous work experience includes time at BioWare, Volition, Relic, Riot and more triple-A games and studios to make a first-person survival sim called The Long Dark.
