As we told you a couple of days ago
, developer Steamroller Studios successfully kickstarted their latest title, Deadwood: The Forgotten Curse
, a survival adventure that's an interesting combination, in their words, of "Zelda
and Don't Starve
." Just days after reaching their funding goal, they've now found a publisher: UK Indie label Team 17. The Florida-based Steamroller team will be the first U.S. company to join the Team 17 family.
In celebration of the new collaboration, we have a few screens for the upcoming adventure.Deadwood: The Forgotten Curse is an action/adventure game with a unique survival twist. You play as Lathe, a teenage woodling and an avid inventor. During your adventure you are accompanied by a stone giant named Roguard and together you must fight back a horde of wooden zombies, better known as "The Deadwood", and stop their curse from spreading through the land of Knottington.
By day, Roguard will protect you from the Deadwood allowing you the freedom to explore the land of Knottington. You’ll scavenge for resources and then use those resources to craft your weapons and defenses because when the sun sets, Roguard falls fast asleep leaving you alone to fight back the Deadwood and protect your stone companion. With the right balance of strategy and skill you may just survive the night.Deadwood: The Forgotten Curse
still has a long way to go; it's expected for the Xbox One December, 2016.
