New Horror Game Jazon and the Dead Trailer
Fig, funding and publishing platform that offers rewards and investments in securities that track the financial performance of a game, launched a new crowdfunding campaign and trailer for indie title Jazon and the Dead, a blood-spattered new action-adventure/horror PC and Mac shooter game steeped in vintage exploitation movie aesthetics.
Jazon and the Dead is the first original title from the Danish studio 2nd Studio who’ve previously done gaming visual development and art production for clients including Disney, Pixeleap and Kiloo. Combining top-down 3D shooting with puzzle solving and an immersive player-driven story, Jazon and the Dead takes place in a variety of macabre settings with brooding, cell-shaded visuals.
Titular hero Jazon is an unlikely protagonist with a taste for whiskey and a penchant for killing zombies. Suffering from amnesia, he sets out on a journey through a seemingly-uninhabited wasteland and soon stumbles across Zoey, a survivor and companion of questionable trustworthiness. The duo will traverse abandoned towns, haunted deserts and meandering rivers on their search for answers.
Jazon and the Dead features a player-driven story where tough choices must be made along the way. Players must use problem solving to outsmart the shambling enemies, or if things get too Intense, utilize a mix of gunplay and martial arts to keep the undead at bay. With a moody sci-fi setting and soundtrack inspired by 80’s films along with spooky comic book-style visuals, the unsettling game is punctuated with cheeky gallows humor.
