The Pandemic Begins in Montreal in Ambitious RPG, ReRoll
The devs at start-up studio Pixyul want the Earth to be your RPG playground.
Pixyul is using drones to map the Earth one section at a time and transform real-life environments into 3D objects for their highly ambitious survival/action game, ReRoll, and they just unveiled what the first playable section will be: downtown Montreal.
In the video above we get a first look at the map as well as a set-up for the global pandemic storyline ReRoll features.
ReRoll is a crowdfunding project and various character packages priced from $20 to $275 USD are now up for sale in the Pixyul shop. No word on a specific funding goal (this thing certainly won’t be cheap), but the devs say downtown Montreal should be ready for backers by mid-2015.
Fascinating concept, I’m just not sure how Pixyul will be able to pull this off via crowdfunding. Certainly one to watch, though.
