If you’ve ever caught yourself thinking “Yeah, Dead Island was pretty good, but what it needed were more spells and magic and giant axes,” then you’re going to have your prayers answered. A few Techland devs working in their spare time created a magic mod for the game, allowing you to do fun things like freeze a monster with ice and then chop it up with a bloody great sword.
This apparently turned some heads inside Techland, and a few developers were assigned to turn this into a real thing: so it is that ‘Project Hell’ – a codename, for now – is being eagerly worked on by a small team inside Techland, and is shaping up rather nicely.
They’re chronicling their adventures over at Sharpen Your Axes!, including asking for votes on how things should go – so take a look and chip in with your thoughts.
