E3 2013: Ray's The Dead Coming To PlayStation 4Ray’s The Dead had recently launched a Kickstarter to fund the game for release on PC, Mac and Linux but cancelled it on May 29th. Ragtag Studio announced at Sony’s E3 press conference that it now plans to exclusively launch the game on the PS4 instead. Great news for Sony fans everywhere!

From the Press Release
In Ray’s The Dead, you take on the role of Ray, the newly arisen zombie! In this single player, story driven Action-Stealth-Puzzler, join Ray as he makes the most unlikely friendships and builds a diverse zombie army on his quest to find out how he was killed, why he was resurrected, and most curiously, why this giant bulb is sticking out of his head! It’s 80’s setting evident in every last detail, Ray’s the dead will take you on a quest unlike any you’ve seen before!

Features:

  • Releasing on PlayStation 4
  • Ray’s The Dead is a fresh take on the zombie game genre – YOU are the zombie! That’s right, this is your rare opportunity to side with the zombies and experience their side of the story.
  • In Ray’s The Dead you’ll start the game as a single zombie… Ray of course, and create a variety of unique zombie types that will help cause mayhem along the way! Each zombie type has its own unique skill set that will aid in your quest.
  • You know all the classic moments you’ve seen in all your favorite zombie movies? Zombies streaming out of the forest to surprise the poor innocent humans. Zombies crashing through the windows, shocking the passerby? You have the pleasure of recreating all those moments in Ray’s the Dead!
  • A simple way to sum it up is Pikmin meets Stubbs the Zombie, but also so much more! An action game at its core, Ray’s The Dead also has strong tactical elements, stealth, puzzle solving, and even some adventure game elements.
  • A satisfying and surprisingly gripping story is fairly uncommon in this genre. Experience Ray’s life as a Zombie, as well as his live before his demise via interactive storytelling elements in the form of playable flashbacks.
  • Nostalgic and inviting 80?s setting. You’ll meet lots of familiar faces and see lots of familiar sights in this throwback to this eclectic period.
  • Adding to that 80?s feel, an incredible soundtrack featuring a variety of today’s best independent musicians! Headlined by the industry favorite Jake Kaufman, and featuring additional compositions by Luke Rowell of Disaster Radio. With many more to be announced in the coming months!
  • Ragtag Studio consists of three industry veterans that have worked in the industry for 13 years each on titles such as Stubbs the Zombie, Halo Wars, and Thief 3.

    Hollywood Science Fiction Museum Founder Arrested on Child Pornography Charges

    Published

    on

    Floyd "Huston" Huddleston

    In the past couple of years, we’ve seen the powers that be in Hollywood face a reckoning as more and more people who have suffered at the hands of the elite come forward with their stories of pain and horror. Each new story helps give confidence to those who would otherwise remain silent, their experiences that would otherwise be hidden given the chance to have light shed upon it. While it’s painful to see people we once respected be exposed, such pain is necessary so that future generations can hopefully experience these kinds of events at drastically reduced rates. After all, we’ll never be able to completely stop these kinds of actions but we can do our best to create effective and recognizable deterrents.

    It’s come to our attention that recently Hollywood Science Fiction Museum founder Floyd “Huston” Huddleston III was arrested by Los Angeles police on three charges, including Penal Code 288.3 (contacting a minor with intent to commit a felony), Penal Code 311.4 (a crime to hire, employ, use, persuade, or coerce a minor to participate in the production of child porn), and Penal Code 311.11(a) (possession of obscene matter depicting a minor engaging in sexual conduct). Huddleston, who pleaded “not guilty” to all charges, is being held on a $750,000 bail with a court date of June 12. All information was found via the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department website.

    What’s troubling is that we’re seeing reports of people claiming that Huston, through various means, is selling donated props from the Museum on various auction websites in order to raise money for his bail.

    Makeup artist Gigi Bannister, who worked on Phantasm IV: Oblivion and Phantasm: Ravager wrote in a Facebook comment, “I’m fielding inquiries on this end too from Horror and Phantasm Phans asking about an exclusive set of Phantasm II sphere props that we think Don Coscarelli had to have donated and then Huston SOLD! This is history we can never recover!” [Update: I got off the phone with Gigi who is working to confirm that these are indeed the official sphere props. She will then let us know.]

    A Facebook post by self-proclaimed ex-Hollywood Science Fiction Museum volunteer Loretta Lightningbolt states that she and several other volunteers, “…discovered through our own research that museum founder Floyd “Huston” Huddleston was not on a long vacation, as we had been told back in April. We were sickened to discover he has been charged with three counts of sexual crimes against a minor, something none of us want any association with.” She then continued by stating that she and seven other volunteers have, “…resigned from our respective positions.” On top of the volunteers leaving en masse, other members of the Museum are removing themselves from any affiliation, including Mick Garris (The Shining, The Stand).

    The Hollywood Science Fiction Museum’s only comment on this situation was a tweet that posted the arrest record. Since then, the museum’s website has erased nearly every instance of Huddleston’s name and likeness. Furthermore, the Hollywood Horror Museum, which was created by the Hollywood Science Fiction Museum founders, has removed its Board of Directors page on its website.

    We will follow this story up with more details as they become available.

    NIGHTMARE CINEMA Snags Hard R Rating

    Published

    on

    Later this year we will see the release of the new horror anthology Nightmare Cinema. The film comes ot us from directors Mick Garris, Joe Dante, David Slade, Ryuhei Kitamura, and Alejandro Brugues and stars Mickey Rourke as The Projectionist.

    Today we have word via the MPAA that the horror anthology has been given an R rating for “horror violence/gore, grisly images, language, some sexuality, and brief nude images.” And all of that sounds like good times to me!

    Are you excited about this new horror anthology? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

    Nightmare Cinema will premiere at this year’s Fantasia International Film Festival.

    Synopsis:

    A series of down-on-their-luck individuals enter the decrepit and spine-chilling Rialto theater, only to have their deepest and darkest fears brought to life on the silver screen by The Projectionist – a mysterious, ghostly figure who holds the nightmarish futures of all who attend his screenings. By the time our patrons realize the truth, escape is no longer an option. For once the ticket is torn, their fate is sealed at Nightmare Cinema.

    Mick Garris, Joe Dante, David Slade, Ryuhei Kitamura, and Alejandro Brugues
