The gaming industry has always brought horror fans some exciting and new ideas with the releases of several different kinds of horror game titles. One of the most popular–and my favorite–horror games, which paved the way for survival horror games to follow, is Resident Evil. It’s creator, Shinji Mikami, just revealed that he is currently working on developing a new survival horror game called, Zwei.
In an interview with Japense gaming magazine, Famitsu, Mikami explained that the game is in the early stages of development under his new studio, Tango Gameworks. The gaming director assures that with his newest gaming venture, fans can expect to play something containing the classical horror elements found in other popular horror games.
Mikami worked with Capcom and helped to create the original Resident Evil which was released for Playstation in 1996. He worked on several other game titles in the horror franchise and also helped to create another survival horror, Dino Crisis (loved that one too!). The father of the zombie game series eventually left Capcom after the series’ 4th installment and went on to work with other companies including, Electronic Arts, and Grasshopper Manufacture.
Zwei will reportedly be the last game for Mikami before he retires from the gaming industry for good. There has been no word yet what the game will be about or when it will be released, however, the creator is on the prowl for some awesome programmers to help him with the project.
I cannot wait and hopefully it will be a game more like the original Resident Evil rather than the new multi-player shooter games like Left 4 Dead. I personally enjoy a game with a set storyline that you need to follow over an action/shooter game because it’s more fun for me! And I suck at shooter games.
Are you excited for this new game project?
