Apocalypse Now Joins KickStarter as a "Horror RPG"

Posted Jan 25, 2017 by Suzie Ford

Apocalypse Now Joins KickStarter as a "Horror RPG"

Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now is being transitioned from Academy Award winning film to an "immersive, psychedelic horror RPG" by Erebus LLC. The project has joined KickStarter with impressive RPG roots in its team with members having worked on Pillars of Eternity, EverQuest, Torment: Tides of Numenera, Neverwinter Nights 2 and other well-known RPGs. Developers hope to raise $900,000 to bring the project to fruition.

Apocalypse Now depicts the horror and spectacle of the Vietnam War through the character of Captain Benjamin Willard, an American tasked with the assassination of Colonel Walter E. Kurtz. 

The game is an interactive recreation of Willard’s journey, as seen through a survival horror lens in which players with limited resources face unspeakable terrors.

By choosing how to react to these situations, each player molds a unique version of Willard within the loose confines of the film story. You are Willard and your actions will determine his fate.

You can learn more about the project on the Apocalypse Now KickStarter page.

What do you think about the project? Is it a game that you would play? Leave us your thoughts in the comments.
