New genre-bending Kickstarter title To The Death, has set a Platform Expansion stretch goal which includes PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4. The game is being shaped in by the tandem of Scary Mostro and Section Studios, both indie developers with remarkably large pedigrees.Planned for a release on PC, Mac and Linux; the campaign will have to surpass its $400,000 goal and reach $750,000 if it is to find itself on PlayStation platforms.
Described as a beat-em-up combined with the flourish of an arcade shooter, To The Death places players in the boots of two vengeful warriors who have pursued their animosity beyond this life and into the crawl; a purgatory-like existence. The 2D side-scrolling combat looks to be both frantic and frenetic, attacking hordes of demon-like enemies who rush the screen.
Both engineering and game design for To The Death are coming by way of Scary Mostro‘s Fransesco Gigliotti and Todd Alderman. The duo have hand their hands in some of gaming’s most popular franchises, with previous credits being engineer and lead designer respectively at for the Call of Duty series at Infinity Ward. More recently they also worked on the much awaited Titan Fall for Respawn entertainment. Additionally the art direction for To The Death comes from Section Studios Creative Director Cecil Kim, who previously worked as the visual development lead for God of War 3.
