Assuming it hits its crowdfunding goal of $900k USD. And then we're all set to get a game based on one of the greatest films of all time. A film that you wouldn't think could translate to an interactive game. The project, headed up by Obsidian and inXile Entertainment veterans, plus the film's director, Francis Ford Coppola, is being described as not a shooter but a "survival horror experience." Also, a first-person RPG where "you can sit on the boat and drop acid, if that's what you want to do." Okay.
The Kickstarter campaign
for the project launched a couple of days ago where so far it has received about 10% of its goal.
Here's the pitch.
With the talent behind the project, which is said to already be in the prototype phase after thousands of hours of design work being done, and resumes that includes Fallout: New Vegas and Wasteland 2, there's definite cause for optimism. But then again, we're talking about Apocalypse Now. A near perfect and intense cinematic experience that Francis Ford Coppola described as "my film isn't about Vietnam, it is Vietnam."
