Last month, Denmark-based developer Press Play – known for 2013’s Max: The Curse of Brotherhood – introduced a new development initiative to its community, allowing fans to help choose Press Play’s next game from a trio of exciting concepts. The fans have spoken, and the winner is Project: Knoxville.
Knoxville is a third-person, multiplayer action game that deals with fragile alliances and survival, in a game show setting. It’s inspired by films like “The Running Man” and “The Hunger Games,” and players must work together and against each other. And this is just the beginning: Press Play’s community will get the chance to engage with the studio throughout Knoxville’s open development.
Right now, Press Play is working hard on getting Knoxville’s prototype into a sharable state. For now, you can check out the announcement video above, and head to Press Play’s official site to learn more about Knoxville, and sign up to join the development and be among the first to play the game. Make sure to tune in on Thursday, September 17 at 5:00 a.m. PDT (2:00 p.m. Copenhagen time), when Press Play kicks off its bi-weekly twitch stream – giving you a detailed look at the design process.
We’re extremely excited about Project: Knoxville and its open development process, and we can’t wait to watch Knoxville evolve from rough prototype to finished game!
