There is a crowd-sourced effort going on to make Apocalypse Now, the game. The fundraising and development of this game is lead by several people who have had their hand in several popular and interesting works, such as Gears of War, Battlefield, DC Universe Online, Fallout: New Vegas, The Witcher, Wasteland 2 and Torment: Tides of Numenera, and others .
As stated on their site. Apocalypse Now is going to be a video game for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, macOS and Linux. You are an assassin. You’ve been given the most dangerous, most secret and most controversial special forces mission in U.S. History. But this game is not Call of Duty: Vietnam. You will sneak. You will hide. You will gather resources. You will build your character. You will kill when necessary.
To maintain creative freedom and produce a daring and intense game about the horrors of war, the project is being financed outside the traditional system. We want your support, please back this game.
At the time of writing this, they have had 988 pledges, totally $824,660. Their goal is $5,900,000 and have 418 days remaining. (Zombie Popcorn is one of the funders).
If the idea of playing this game doesn’t excite you and are wondering what the game will be like. Let me say two words, ‘Virtual Reality’. Let that sit with you for a second. Imagine playing a game, in VR, where you are ‘given the most dangerous, most secret and most controversial special forces mission in U.S. history’. Where, you are in the heart of the tension and have the opportunity to explore the jungles and rivers of Vietnam in, not just first person, but in VR!
Ok, if you are not as obsessed with VR as I am, how about hearing from the creators own words why you should be excited to fund and play this game.
