“There has never been a game that properly fuses both genres together”, according to Scott Petty, creative director of Aesthetic Games Inc, the makers of Dead Crusade. A game that features a merciless fusion of medieval fantasy and apocalyptic horror.
Let it be said that the story setting, the 14th century Black Death pandemic wiping out 30–60% of Europe’s population – is a perfect setting for horror. Not only do the death-estimates run between 350–375 million people. The Plague’s symptoms are strikingly similar to zombie-like features.
It is a rather obscure observation, and a very exciting one, that the grossness of it all is meticulously well captured due to this game’s technology – thanks to EPIC games.
