Project Knoxville gets your vote

project knoxville

A while back Press Play gave the community a choice of three gaming concepts to choose from, only one of which would be taken forwards to be refined and released later as a finished product. You have voted for Project Knoxville and it is going forward to the next step. Knoxville is a game that features seven contestants and seven ‘get out alive’ tokens, you can work with or against people around to ensure they make it out alive or stay in with the deadly monsters populating the world.

This was my front running choice of the three games we saw and I cannot wait to see the end product. On Thursday September 17th Press Play will launch their first bi-weekly Twitch Stream join them at 8am New York/ 2PM Copenhagen time to get the chance to talk to with some of the design team as well as receiving a look at some of their design processes.

This week Microsoft announced that the development studio Press Play, who have been behind games such as “Kalimba” and “Max: The Curse of Brotherhood” will be creating a new game, this new development initiative will see Press Play take feedback from the gaming community so they can work together on creating the studio’s next game.

Full details can be found here, but you only have between now and September to vote and review the three game concepts, the choices are as follows;

Project: Dwarka
Grab a bunch of friends and become a band of legendary dwarven treasure hunters, explore the underworld filled with gold and all kinds of monstrosities. With the survival skills of dwarves and an endless array of tools to overcome any kind of obstacle let nothing stand in your way. Get in! Grab that gold! Get out!

Project: Karoo
A physics-based multiplayer construction game set in an open world. In Karoo you can construct any kind of vehicle and travel far and wide to find new types of items with your friends, But beware hitting walls, crashing and colliding will see your vehicle being obliterated into thousands of pieces.

Project: Knoxville
A multiplayer action-survival game where players must both work together and against each other. An arena filled with deadly monsters, 7 contestants and 7 ‘get out alive’ tokens, work together to find them and ensure everyone makes it out or let greed get the best of you and let others perish. Will you be exiting the arena with everyone else that entered?

The community will get the chance to engage with Press Play throughout the development of which ever game is voted for, some of ways this will happen is through regular forum and blog activity as well as sharing early builds of the game and allowing community members join meetings and project reviews via Skype.

Front runner for me is Knoxville, what will you be voting for?
