Following the conclusion of a successful Kickstarter campaign, The Beast Inside has reached a new stretch goal via Paypal donations, which means that a new location is being added to the “photorealistic” horror title.
In the latest Kickstarter update, publisher PlayWay has announced that the game has surpassed the CAD$90,000 stretch goal , ensuring the new Swamp Hut location is included. Although the developers have not said exactly what the new environment brings to the project, the update teases “lurking spectres [and] wicked ladies.” With the latest goal reached, the team is getting ever closer to the multiple endings stretch goal, now needing less than CAD$10,000.
Currently, The Beast Inside takes place in a massive house, displaying a careful attention to detail and artistry. Having another location added to the the game will allow the developers to include more scary situations and places for players to explore.
Backing The Beast Inside during its Kickstarter campaign provided access to a demo, which garnered a positive reception, being covered by YouTubers, bloggers and gaming websites, including OnlySP.
The stretch goals met during the initial campaign included extra game mechanics, localisation into an additional 12 languages, and facial and body motion capture. The next stretch goals are the aforementioned multiple endings, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, a VR mode, and a “surprise” from the developers.
