Dead Island dev announces first-person hack-and-slash title Project Hell

A small team who worked on Dead Island at Techland are branching off from the upcoming Dead Island sequel to develop a new IP, codenamed Project Hell.

According to its official blog, Project Hell is a first-person hack-and-slash affair that was originally designed as a mod for Dead Island by one of its developers, Marcin "MZM" Zygadlo.

"Our main goal is to make a game we can all enjoy playing so don't expect unicorns and fairies - we prefer breaking through hordes of undead minions only to slaughter their devilish and loathsome masters in a bloody boss-fight," said designer and project manager Marcin "Kruq" Kruczkiewicz.
