A lot has happened for the indie development studio that is filled with industry veterans, last year Ragtag Studio first announced their story-driven action adventure game, Ray’s The Dead for the PlayStation 4 at Sony’s E3 2013 Press Conference, with also news about getting the greenlight for release on Steam. Yet, still much more is happening as their Kickstarter that was launched last month, which now has only 17 days to go, and has passed the goal of $30,000 with just over $35,000. With this great news and much support from the community, Ragtag Studio announced that they will be bringing the zombie army to the fan’s pockets with now the addition of coming to the PS Vita, plus it will be a Cross-Buy title. This means for anyone out there that has backed this campaign for the PlayStation 4 version, you will automatically also get the PS Vita version.
Haven’t gotten to take a look yet or watch any of the Twitch livestreams for Ray’s the Dead? Well will definitely want to get your hands on this! Ray’s the Dead has players come into quirky action-adventure game, where they play the role of Ray LaMorte. Experience Ray’s life and afterlife through a dual narrative storytelling and over-the-top action, where you suddenly are brought back to life in order to find out why you died, and why do you have a mysterious device lodged into your brain. Take on a gaming experience that is filled with action, tactics, puzzle, stealth, and adventure.
“Players will sneak, smash, laugh, and moan their way through the last hurrah of the 1980’s as they take on the role of Ray, the newly risen zombie. Along the way they will discover who Ray really is, how he ended up dead, and most curiously, what is this giant light bulb contraption sticking out of his head!”
With Ray now being a new zombie, he will now be able to make new friends and build a zombie army that will destroy his human opponents at his command. You will even have a companion dog that will help as well! If you are ready for an adventure unlike any other seen before, then Ray’s the Dead is the one for you to experience, plus experiencing the fun and exciting tale behind Ray.
“We’re very excited to bring Ray’s the Dead to the PS Vita,” Chris Cobb, the Project Director and Co-founder at Ragtag Studio mentioned on the PlayStation Blog. “It’s been nothing short of amazing to see the support we’ve gotten for our beloved undead hero, and we’re hoping to see more fans rally to help us achieve our Vita and PlayStation TV specific stretch goal with our remaining Kickstarter days.”
With the successful goal being met already, and with just 17 days left, there are plenty of stretch goals that will take Ray’s The Dead even further. With the help of the community, if the stretch goal meets the $55k goal, it will allow for the studio to go head and develop an enhanced Vita version, which would allow for support on the upcoming PlayStation TV.
