Francis Ford Coppola's 'Apocalypse Now' Getting A Game?
A lot of games have already come out based on movies like "Scarface" and Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, but news has it that a bunch of developers are out to make a game based on Francis Ford Coppola's Vietnam War masterpiece, "Apocalypse Now." The game is being developed by several veteran game designers, some of which have worked on games like Gears of War and Fallout: New Vegas.
According to Polygon, Coppola himself has shown support for the project , "Forty years ago, I set out to make a personal art picture that could hopefully influence generations of viewers for years to come... Today, I'm joined by new daredevils, a team who want to make an interactive version of Apocalypse Now... I've been watching videogames grow into a meaningful way to tell stories, and I'm excited to explore the possibilities for Apocalypse Now for a new platform and a new generation," said Coppola.
According to a video from the developers, they're trying to recreate the movie as a survival-horror action game - as opposed to the standard FPS shooters that gamers are familiar with when it comes to war-themed video games. It's also said to test players psychologically, as they face "unspeakable horrors" of war. The developers are also keen on keeping the project independent so that they are free to make the unique game that studios will nott let them do.
In Apocalypse Now: The Game, Players will get to take control of Captain Benjamin Willard (Martin Sheen), as he tries to survive the harsh battlefields of the Vietnam War. If the game remains loyal to the movie, players will also get to encounter other characters like Colonel Lucas (Harrison Ford), Clean Miller (Laurence Fishburne) and Walter Kurtz (Marlon Brando).
Anyone interested in backing the "Apocalypse Now" game can check out the Kickstarter page. As of now, the developers have a goal of $900,000, and so far only $55,000 has been raised. Hopefully this title will spark the interest of some gamers looking for something new, as well as some hardcore cinephile gamers.
Apocalypse Now is currently in development, and the project is said to be available for platforms like the PS4 and Xbox One with an additional VR option.
