SVRVIVE Studios, the team behind 2016 puzzle title SVRVIVE: The Deus Helix announced back in April that its next project would be slightly different, revealing a stealthy first-person shooter (FPS) called Kartong – Death by Cardboard! The team are preparing to launch their second videogame on Steam Early Access next week, 25th October.
Featuring procedurally generated levels and 15 difficulty settings, Kartong – Death by Cardboard! puts you up against evil experiments inside a miniature cardboard city. Combining the cuteness of scary toys with the charm of paper cuts, the early access build will also include six weapon options and four enemy types to begin with, teleportation and stick style movement systems, eight traps and gadgets and cross platform saves between Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
SVRVIVE Studios expects to be in early access for a couple of months, during which time it’ll continue adding content such as more weapons, traps and gadgets, enemies, improved controls, new map elements and much more.
Revealing how the project came about, Daniel Kihlgren Kallander, Lead Game Designer and Programmer at SVRVIVE Studios, said: “Kartong – Death by Cardboard! is actually the result of a game jam gone wrong, but the gameplay quickly caught on with the team and we decided to keep working on it. The game puts you inside a miniature city with procedurally generated levels, which means the city’s map will change every time you play. We’ve also added a seed system, allowing you to share your discovered city maps with friends and challenge each other.”
