Calm Night of Snowfall Turns To Crowdsourcing To Fund Wii U Version

Posted by Andy Green

It's cold outside

Spanish indie developer Unnamed Stdio has set up a crowdsourcing campaign for its upcoming title Calm Night of Snowfall.

It's a first person survival horror game set in a wintery urban environment that, according to the developer, "hates you". Based on that, it could be Paris, but it's likely to be a fictional city as each time you play the level is randomly generated in order to give a different and unique experience every time.

Essentially, you awaken in an amnesic state in a strange room and in order to escape from the evil city you'll need to recover the keys required to unlock the exit. The cold is your greatest enemy and you'll need to take shelter in abandoned buildings should it get too nippy. Naturally, once you're indoors it's a bit dark, which all adds to the tension. Oh, and there's a creepy guy in a white suit wandering around who can instantly kill you should you let him near you - that's probably going to be a worry too.

Unnamed Stdio is looking to acquire €20,000 to bring Calm Night of Snowfall to Steam but it has also expressed its desire to release on the Wii U and in order to make that happen a stretch goal of €50,000 has been set. According to the developer, it has big plans for the way the game would be played on Nintendo's system and it wants to fully utilise the GamePad.

At the time of writing, the game hasn't received too much support but there are more than 200 days still to run in the campaign so who knows, it could make it.

Check out the trailer to the game along with the pitch below and let us know what you think to it in the comment section.

Sounds like my kind of town... Very Silent Hilly... I want

They sure cought my attention... Shattered memories was my favourite Silent Hill (I know many will disagree, but I played them all, except for the ps Vita one and the two HD ones that look like action games) and I could use a new horror game on my Wii U since I finished Zombiu ages ago and Revelations wasn't new to me.

Looks nice. I'll check it out if it ever comes to WiiU.



SyntheticPerson said:

I've not heard of the funding website they are using. Maybe kickstarter may have been a better idea to get more interest?

I hope it does well though, as it could be really good.

A game that fully utilizes the gamepad? Randomly generated environments? Cold weather? I'm interested greatly.



Kyloctopus said:

Sounds great. I really hope we can get some more survival horror games in the markets.

@SyntheticPerson They are a spanish company and that is a spanish crowd funding site. Agree that Kickstarter would be more universal, but I can't blame them for choosing something more native to them.

@Shambo You are not the only one, man. I am also a HUGE, HUGE fan of Shattered Memories for Wii. It still ranks in my top two all-time favorite survival horrors and DEFINITELY, hands-down the best Silent Hill in the series!

This sound like the most interesting Indie incoming wiiu game so far only if I could help them



ScorpionMG said:

this is one of those horror indie games right? damn those stuff are scary It would fit perfectly on the U



Dynheart said:

Looks like an interesting game. Hope it gets the funding it needs to see a Wii U version.



TotalHenshin said:

The likely reason Kickstarter wasn't used is that you have to be based in the US to use Kickstarter as a crowdfunding platform. There are some work arounds, but it's not easy. Perhaps would have been a better source, as that seems to be the #2 most-used crowd-funding site for potential video games.



Shambo said:

@PattonFiend Nice to know that there are others that fully appreciate what the game offered. And what would be your number one? I played many horror games but only a handful were memorable for more than just a couple of jump-scares or a few buckets of gore per square meter... I need ATMOSPHERE!

I say, let's give em a chance. It's a new company, and god knows it's hard to get a business there. For the number of employees, for the time they worked on the game, what they showed is not bad at all. I'm pretty sure it'll turn out very good, and way more polished.

And randomly generated map? F*** yes!
