Despite delivering one of the most memorable video game teasers of all time, for many, Techland’s Dead Island didn’t quite live up to expectations when it launched back in September. A few odd, not to mention damaging, design choices and a constant feed of bugs were mainly to blame, yet few could fault the game’s luscious open world and fun albeit sadistic limb-chopping gameplay.
Currently Techland is cracking on with Dead Island Riptide (which we will hear more about during PAX) but for now fans will have to make do with an internally-developed mod for the original game, dubbed “Project Hell”.
Originally a weapon mod conceived by a Techland staffer, the Polish studio has since dedicated more team members to what is now a standalone spin-off centred around fantasy hack n’ slash encounters.
