At every turn, I’m looking for ways to support my fellow indie game developers, and today’s news has me smiling (insert meme here I guess). A project called Outbreak: Contagious Memories will soon launch on Kickstarter, and its loyal fans have taken to the Stadia Community Blog to show their support.
The game will launch soon, and with it, a click-to-play Stadia demo for anyone who wants to try it out. It’s an awesome strategy – launch a Kickstarter and get Google’s backing through its awesome new frictionless demo system for the life of the campaign. This means anyone potentially looking to support the project can do more than just watch GIFs and text, they can play!
In addition to Outbreak, Stadia announced the upcoming release of The Dungeons of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos and “From Space,” an aptly named sequel to “It Came From Space and Ate Our Brains.”
All three of these games look pretty fun, and I’m personally very excited for Les Dunjons de Naheulbeuk (and yes, I had to look up the word to spell it correctly every time) because it has a quirky, humorous take on something like Dungeons & Dragons. I wish the developers of Outbreak good luck, and hope their strategy garners a ton of support. Be sure to check out the game and play a free 60 minute demo before heading over to their Kickstarter page!
Outbreak: contagious memories
Outbreak: Contagious Memories is a chilling love letter to classic 90s horror games where your survival will be determined by moment-to-moment decisions, what you decide to carry, and your ability to spot notes written in a way practice.
You’re trapped in a city ravaged by the undead – can you get out alive? Join Lydia in her desperate struggle to escape, alone or with a friend in co-op mode. With plenty of unlockable bonus content like Operation: Rabid Wolf, work with your friends or compete against them, whether it’s battling through the city to save survivors or beating the main game in record time with nothing but your fists.
