Help Kickstart The Surreal Stealth Horror Game Tangiers
It’s not often that we come across a game that defies conventional genre descriptors, most games are merely content to work from within the pre-established confines of their genre, severely limiting their creative influences. That’s why we are so intrigued by independent developer Andalusian’s upcoming Kickstarter horror title Tangiers, it looks like nothing we’ve ever seen before.
Best described as an amalgamation of Thief, Slender Man, and classic exploration titles, Tangiers casts players as a weakened being who’s been dropped into a whole other dimension, a dark world full of atmosphere, tension, and philosophically challenging concepts. Taking the form of a vast cityscape, players must traverse a living, breathing environment that dynamically reacts to your every move in search of five beings or marks who hold the key to the events surrounding your arrival. This nightmarish world twists and turns matter itself into whatever bizarre thoughts are plaguing nearby inhabitants at any time. Soon the laws of physics, the nature of existence, and even time itself are called into question. Deep doesn’t even begin to describe the narrative scope behind Tangiers.
Does this sound like a game you’d like to play? Help make it a reality! Tangiers is crowdsourcing its funding through Kickstarter and surprisingly hasn’t yet hit its modest goal of 35k. With only less than 8 days left in its kickstarter, your support could make all the difference in bringing this truly unique and groundbreaking title to life.
