River City Ransom Sequel in the Works
Conatus Creative has launched a Kickstarter campaign, running until October 9th, for an officially licensed sequel to the NES cult classic, River City Ransom. The studio has reached 51% of its $180,000 CAD funding goal at press time, with approximately half of the campaign to go.
The team has recruited Yoshihisa Kishimoto, the creator of the original Kunio-kun game series and the director of Double Dragon, to help achieve consistency with the source material. Campaign staff highlights include Dustin Crenna, sound designer with credits on Halo 4, BioShock 2 and The Darkness II, and Rich Vreeland, music composer of Fez.
River City Ransom: Underground is scheduled for release in Summer 2014 if successful on Kickstarter.
