Site News & Updates | Manhunt Inspired Kickstarter Goes Live
There is currently a Kickstarter project that I think all Manhunt fans should take a look at.
Described as a "religious themed stealth game for PC" Bishop Stix is actually being developed by a former employee of Rockatar North, having contributed to the development of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
The project has a goal of reaching £10,000 by the 7th of November 2017. If the goal is met then it has a projected release of March 2018 for the PC. There are several stretch goals including a release on consoles at £40,000.
You can contribute to funding the development of Bishop Stix by heading over to the games Kickstarter page.
For more information on the game you can follow the Bishop Stix Facebook page or check out the thread on the forums that was created by the games developer.
