2020 is shaping up to be one of the oddest years in recent history. So far we have had the US Senate acquit the President of the United States, a virus that has killed near 87,000 worldwide, a toilet paper shortage and now, on top of all that, a Cannibal Holocaust game as just been announced. Yes, you read that right…Cannibal Holocaust.
On their website, Fantastico Studio has announced that “On the fortieth anniversary of the release of the cult film Cannibal Holocaust, director Ruggero Deodato announces the fourth, highly awaited chapter of his cannibals cycle, with great news: the new episode will not be a movie, but a videogame created in collaboration with Fantastico Studio.”
Directed by Ruggero Deodato and based on a script by Gianfranco Clerici, Cannibal Holocaust follows an anthropologist who leads a rescue team into the Amazon rainforest in hopes of locating a crew of documentary filmmakers that have gone missing. While there, the rescue team uncovers spine-chilling footage shot by the documentary crew. Truly bad stuff ensues.
Released on February 7, 1980, the film starred Robert Kerman, Carl Yorke, Francesca Ciardi, Luca Barbareschi and Perry Pirkanen.
Fantastico Studio has announced that Cannibal is an interactive horror graphic adventure made with Unity, with the direction and script of Ruggero Deodato, the original drawings of Solo Macello, in which the player will take control of different characters, to reveal, little by little, the background that led them to a desperate expedition to the virgin jungles of Borneo. And of course, get to discover the end of the story, destined to shake from the foundations every certainty acquired during the game. The game will be available for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, PC and mobile.
Cannibal is set for a November 2020 release. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for the latest on the Cannibal Holocaust video game.
