Black Widow Games today announced that they have been developing a new, retail Source Engine based game based on the popular They Hunger Half-Life mod series called "They Hunger: Lost Souls". They are about 75% complete on the project and a release date is going to be announced soon. The game takes place in Northeastern Europe in the early 1960's where strange happenings lead to the dead rising from the grave. You play a tourist recovering from some unnamed accident and you seek shelter in an ancient monastery where a series of ever increasing horrors take place.
"They Hunger: Lost Souls is a first-person action game planned to take full advantage of the superior graphics, physics and new gameplay possibilities provided by the new Source technology," said designer Neil Manke. "Without the previous technical restrictions of the now seven years old Half-Life 1 engine, we have been able to produce a brand new game far more exciting and creative than any simple sequel or remake could ever be. Fans of the original series should still recognize the basic gameplay style, although this is an independent story with no previous knowledge required."
