Our friends at Mr. Tired Media have launched a Kickstarter for their upcoming game, Undead Darlings ~no cure for love~!
Explore the funpocalypse with a unique half-zombie crew of girls in this Japanese-inspired Visual Novel Dungeon-crawling RPG hybrid–Undead Darlings!
The story of Undead Darlings ~no cure for love~ revolves around Reginald “Reggie” P. Happenstahnce and his journey to take the cure for the zombie plague someplace safe; somewhere it can be mass-produced. His father—one of the scientists purported to be involved in the outbreak’s inception—created this cure and left it behind before leaving on his own for the same purpose.
The game opens with Reggie waking up from an alcohol-related coma (courtesy of his own father, no less) and being told by his childhood friend Pearl that society had crumbled due to a virus outbreak that turned most everyone into zombies while he was sleeping. This includes Pearl herself. However, Pearl has managed to hold onto her human conscience, and she relates that she is not the only one this has happened to. As with every half-zombie Reggie will run into, she may be undead, but her heart is still human.
Players, through the eyes of Reggie, will meet several more undead girls who have held onto their human hearts, along with a fellow human named Buck who has abandoned his. Buck also takes on the duty of driving the party around in his big hybrid truck, which serves as a storage facility for the loot you acquire in the game’s dungeons.
Your role as Reggie is to be the girls’ loot donkey and carry the things they find in dungeons. Since Reggie is a human, the girls will prevent him from getting infected by fighting in the front lines! Go them!
While on this adventure, you will learn more about the undead girls’ lives from before the outbreak, but whose tale you will hear is based on the choices you make during the visual novel scenes. Perhaps one of them will connect with you, open up about their hardships, and maybe even develop romantic feelings… The ultimate result of these interactions will determine whether or not any of these girls trust you enough to take the biggest risk of their undead lives—volunteer to be the first test subject for your father’s cure!
Check out the Kickstarter today and pledge your aid–with everyone’s help we can make this brand new adventure a reality! If you act fast, you can help secure a copy of this game for yourself for just $13 too!
Is H-content present in the physical copies you will publish?
Not really into zombies, but since you can cure them…
Also, I have mixed feelings about this project; they have relatively good voice actors, and the artstyle is perfectly fine, albeit nothing too special.
But, the game concept… as much as I love dungeon crawlers in general, the actual in-game battles shown on the Kickstarter page look kinda unpolished.
Will probably back up the Kickstarter anyways, if I can do so via PayPal.
And if not, I will simply snatch a physical copy from here, or rather, J-list, since I still have some points left.
Don’t mind my mindless rambling here.
I’m already bursting with curiosity what you will have in store for us in two days, and 8 hours.
