Back in early February we brought you the news that intriguing co-operative survival story The Wild Eight was heading to Xbox One. Expected towards the end of 2016, The Wild Eight takes place following a plane crash in deserted, frozen Alaska. Playing co-operatively as one of eight survivors, the Russia-based development team promises a harsh look at winter survival and a blood-curdling story.
The Wild Eight has now landed on Kickstarter to help fund the game’s development. Seeking $50,000 by May, the team have already raised a quarter of that total, so early signs that the game will get the funding it needs look promising.
Developers 8 Points have also released the first gameplay trailer – available exclusively on their Kickstarter page – that gives a closer look at what some of the mechanisms that should make it into the final game.
We think this procedurally generated survival adventure is already shaping up as one of the more interesting games on the horizon, with eerie music to accompany beautiful visuals that no doubt hide unknown Alaskan terror, so we can only hope that the game gets funded and a release. Why not hop on over to the Kickstarter page and pledge $15 to snag yourself a copy of the game?
