West of Dead - Announcement Trailer
 

Quote:

West of Dead stars Ron Perlman as William Mason, a dead man awakened with “only the memory of a figure in black.” Apparently, his existence has set off a chain of events with “mythic consequences.”

Here’s a short synopsis:

Thrown into the unknown procedurally generated hunting grounds of Purgatory, your skills will be put to the test as you shoot and dodge your way through the grime and grit of the underworld. The game evolves the twin-stick shooter with tactical cover usage, find out if you have what it takes to get through Purgatory with your soul intact.

Developed by UK-based Upstream Arcade, the game will be released on Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass (at launch), PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC in 2020.

An open beta is currently live on Xbox One and will run through November 26.

Step one of design in 2019:
"What's a popular show or game?"
Step two of design in 2019:
"What's another popular show or game?"
Step three of design in 2019:
"Let's mash them together and even use their naming format!"

You forgot step three point five: "Add some affordable celebrity that's still popular with the old (paying) crowd. If they're too expensive, use an abstract in-game character and just have voice-overs. A skeleton? Perfect!"

Seriously, this looks all kinds of crappy. If it was Hellboy, I'd cut them some slack, because they somewhat succeed at ripping off Mike Mignola's art style (step two point five: "Copy a look that won some awards"). But a Ghost Rider clone (step one point five: "It doesn't have to be that popular, really")? Nah. At least, have Nicolas Cage do the voice!
