The first-person survival horror game Cult County, developed by Renegade Kid (Dementium, Moon) is no longer headed to Nintendo 3DS.
Originally announced as a 3DS exclusive, Cult County is now targeting a release on PC, Wii U, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and Vita. Renegade Kid is running a Kickstarter campaign to get the title funded. Their goal is to raise $580 000 to cover the game’s development costs. Renegade Kid will also release Cult County on Xbox 360 if they reach their $640 000 stretch goal.
The developer explained why the survival horror game will no longer be released on 3DS. “Cult County has grown beyond the scope of the 3DS, and we do not want to compromise our vision for the game, said the Kickstarter page. We are excited by the opportunity home consoles and computers offer the game, and hope you share our enthusiasm.” Cult County will run on Unity, which the 3DS doesn’t support at this time.
Renegade Kid did add that if fans express enough interest in there still being a 3DS version of Cult County, they could add a 3DS stretch goal. However, this stretch goal “would need to cover the cost of developing a separate game entirely, as [Renegade Kid] would need to rebuilt the game from scratch with [their] proprietary 3DS engine”.
Cult County is described by Renegade Kid as a game with an emphasis on story, but also quiet tension and atmosphere. They claim to be “bringing the classic survival horror experience back from the grave”. Cult County has a tentative release date of May 2015.
