Shadow of the Colossus-esque Prey for the Gods launches Kickstarter campaign

Mixed with a bit of Deus Ex, Dayz, Bloodborne.

Prey for the Gods

Independent developer No Matter Studios has taken to Kickstarter to fund its new project Prey for the Gods, an action survival game set on a desolate frozen island that “ambitiously combines the gameplay of Shadow of the Colossus, Deus Ex, DayZ, and Bloodborne.” It is seeking $300,000 in funding for a PC release, with a $600,000 stretch goal for a post-PC launch console release.

Prey for the Gods puts players in the role of a lone hero sent to the edge of a dying world to discover the mystery behind a never-ending winter. You will have to survive an destroy the colossal dangers that you encounter—the very Gods that you believe in—to restore balance and reclaim the land.

The game will feature “colossal battles” with giants where you can climb your foes, a “vast and mysterious” frozen world with dynamic snow terrain to traverse, “intense” survival gameplay, mysterious temples full of secrets and treasures, a dynamic weather and day-night cycle, non-linear gameplay where you choose who to battle and how, and the ability to loot fallen heroes for new weapons and supplies.
