CAUSTIC REALITY, the one-man game studio founded by Sydney developer Clinton McCleary, is launching its debut game INFLICTION this October. McCleary developed the entire game as a solo project, acting as designer, programmer, artist, animator, and sound engineer.
All through June, McCleary is running a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to give the almost completed INFLICTION Infliction a little extra degree touch. He hopes to hire a professional animator, provide translations into multiple languages, bring the game to consoles, and more. You can view the Kickstarter campaign here, and the new trailer here.
INFLICTION is scheduled to be released for Windows PCs via Steam in October, ready to play on Halloween, but it reaches its stretch goals, it will also come to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and VR, starting in late 2018 and into 2019. You can download a free playable demo here.
Infliction’s creator Clinton McCleary said, “I was originally inspired by the amazing environmental storytelling in Gone Home. I loved how it told its story organically through its environment and gave players freedom to experience the story at their own pace. Considering how that kind of narrative design would work in a horror game became the initial idea that grew into Infliction. I’m so proud of what I’ve achieved alone, and I’m hoping the Kickstarter is a big success so I can make it even better.”
