XMPT Games has announced their latest title for PSMobile, a zombie ridden puzzle game by the name of Project Revenant.

The project will mark a decided departure for the studio as with the creation of this zombie-themed title they will be moving away from the cartoon aesthetic that they have become known for (Penguin Party, Monster Hotel) in favour of something more gritty and dark.

You will play as a member of a specialist squad sent to investigate a series of mysterious disappearances that have surrounded a large warehouse. When things go belly up – you become the latest victim. After waking up in a warehouse room you will be subject to a supposed madman who announced over the speaker that he will be watching your effort to escape. The previous victims of this “sinister” sounding man have all been turned into zombies – and it will be up to you to figure out how you can escape.

According to the developers Project Revenant is inspired largely by retro-puzzle games in that both yourself and enemies will be place upon a grid, with every movement you make – your foes will have the opportunity to do just the same.

There will be multiple solutions to each puzzle and as the game professes players will be introduced to various tricks, items and zombies – which will make sure that the gameplay always remains fresh. Furthermore later in the game there will come a point in which players will come across their partner – adding another variable to the escape also adds another wrinkle to the gameplay.

Project Revenant will also contain brand-new sprite animations – something that the developers have worked at great length to produce and are visibly excited about delivering in the future.

No official release date has been confirmed, but XMPT Games are shooting for a 2014 release.
