Apocalypse Now is a game adaptation of the legendary film from key team members of titles such as Fallout: New Vegas, Far Cry, Wasteland 2, along a bunch of other RPG’s. The makers of Apocalypse Now teamed up with a team of AAA game developers, motion picture professionals, and Interactive creatives in order to make this game.
This unique game is going to put players through the psychedelic vision of the Vietnam war which was originally the idea of the great movie maker Francis Ford Coppola. The project was made in order to balance the creative freedom and integrity that this story demands by receiving funds outside the traditional video game system.
With so many veterans behind the design and development of the game, expectations are running high. Those veterans have been involved in developing legendary titles such as Fallout: New Vegas, Pillars of Eternity, The Witcher, Neverwinter Nights 2, Wasteland 2, Torment: Tides of Numenera, Everquest, DC Universe Online and more. The game focuses on recreating the crazy events that Willard went through on his journey but through the lens of the horror genre with some major RPG elements as well. Playing as Willard is a unique experience as each decision made throughout the game determines his fate.
Even though the fund goal is pretty huge, at $900,000, no one would be surprised to see it reach that milestone as they offer some great rewards which you can see on the right side of the project.
