CASTLE ROCK, CO—June 16, 2015—Rift Interactive, Inc., a game development company in Castle Rock, has launched a crowdfunding campaign for Vicious Dead on Kickstarter.com. The goal is to bring Vicious Dead, a revolutionary interactive digital and physical game concept, to market. Vicious Dead is an online, multi-player zombie survival game that uses live actors with interactive trading cards and digital comic book stories.
The game, created by Rift Interactive’s Christopher Foust in 2014, is designed as a way to allow users to participate in a zombie apocalypse from the comfort of their own home. Gamers can expect to prepare, fight, and form communities with other players in an effort to help their characters survive. Players can either play individually in story mode or opt for the multi-player function.
Vicious Dead’s capabilities reach beyond the traditional gaming experience. The game, set for an October release, will be unlike any other. Users are presented with real actors and scenery through an interactive, multi-player card game. Additionally, they are able to purchase trading cards to enjoy the game outside the digital world. The card game has a simple premise where players start “cured”, avoid becoming “infected” and finishes when all players are eventually overtaken by the zombies.
The technology necessary to create such an innovative experience for gamers with easy-to-use controls that function on tablets and smart phones will take a team of dedicated IT engineers. Rift Interactive plans to bring Vicious Dead to market by using the crowdfunding strategy on Kickstarter.com to raise enough capital to fund the build out of the game. To further entice backers, the group is offering free downloads of the game once released. The crowdfunding campaign will end on July 15th, 2015.
