Announced on Twitter yesterday, Rusty Lake showed off a blurred-out screenplay and pre-call to action. Not only is there a short film in the works but also another game, and obviously those won't fund themselves. There's no news on when the Kickstarter will be just yet, but we'll keep you updated when we know more.
This is really happening! A short Rusty Lake movie is coming... together with a new game! We will need your help to kickstart this project. More info soon! pic.twitter.com/jzy6R2fcyM— Rusty Lake (@rustylakecom) January 29, 2018
As for information on the film or game themselves we know absolutely nothing aside from the fact they've been in the works for six months. For me, personally, I hope the film keeps its ultra-creepy vibe and carries it over into whatever form it'll take. I'd be stoked if it was animated like the games, but that's generally more difficult and costly than hiring a team of actors so it's a bit of a stretch.
Given the content of some of the games, especially the most recent, Paradise, I hope the film'll be for an older audience so the team can take it as far as they want. This is assuming that the film'll follow in line with the games, of course. Recent horror flicks like It Follows show that you don't need much to provide a thrilling experience, so I'm very excited to hear more about it.
How do you feel about Rusty Lake's new projects? What sort of short film are you hoping it'll be? Let us know in the comments below.
