Iceberg Interactive to Publish Dark Matter

Dark Matter

[adsense250itp]Netherlands-based company Iceberg Interactive has agreed to publish the upcoming horror game Dark Matter from Interwave Studios. The title will be distributed in digital and physical formats.

Dark Matter is a 2.5D  side-scrolling survival horror game with platforming elements. Set on board a derelict space shuttle infested by alien invaders, players control a lone female ensign awakened from cryosleep. Tasked with aiding an A.I. construct known as The Companion, gamers must make their way through the ship in order to help the construct before it shuts down and destroys the ship.

Set across 14 levels, players will contend with enemies who possess a unique A.I. that changes based on the player’s tactics and actions. To combat enemies, players can scavenge for items to craft equipment. They will also have the ability to upgrade their equipment in a non-linear environment. Visual effects such as real-time lighting and shadows will be used to intensify scary scenes.

The publishing agreement comes due in part to a failed Kickstarter campaign that started in June that in hopes of raising enough funds to finish development and release Dark Matter through self-publishing. When the Kickstarter campaign ended July 18, the financial goal of £50,000 was not met and Interwave was instead forced to seek a publishing partner.

It is not the first time Interwave has worked with Iceberg to publish a game. The two companies previously partnered for Nuclear Dawn, the first game developed by Interwave.

“We like science fiction and we like horror so this was a clear no-brainer for us,” Iceberg CEO Erik Schreuder said in a press release. “We have confidence in Interwave’s commitment to creating quality games and are excited to bring this game to worldwide audiences in the near future.”

Dark Matter will be available for PC, Mac and Linux when it releases sometime this Fall.
