BORNEO: A Jungle Nightmare is the official title of the new video game by Fantastico Studio, available for PC and console from Summer 2021. Previously known as Deodato’s Cannibal, the game is in development thanks to the active collaboration with the famous director Ruggero Deodato.
Based on a completely new screenplay, BORNEO: A Jungle Nightmare is an original chapter in the famous cannibal cinematic line, representing a brand-new episode of the saga.
Initially scheduled for the end of 2020, the game has suffered a considerable delay due to the Covid emergency that made it more complicated to organize the work remotely with Mr. Deodato.
WARNING: Trailer is not safe for work (NSFW).
BORNEO: A Jungle Nightmare is a 2D point and click graphic adventure in which we relive the terrible story of the characters returning from the expedition in BORNEO.
The setting, made vivid and believable by the fantastic illustrations of the artist Solo Macello, is divided between Pierce’s studio in the United States, the virgin jungles of BORNEO, and other hidden locations.
The player’s goal will be to find out what really happened during the expedition and to understand if Jessica and Alessandro are really people we can trust.
To do this, the player will be able to interact with the characters to talk to them or to perform contextual actions related to the story at that time. In BORNEO: A Jungle Nightmare there will also be gameplay moments in which the player will be asked to be cold-blooded and have the right timing to overcome tricky situations.
The game has two endings, which will be unlocked depending on the amount of information collected or the choices made by the players during their adventure.
Plot of Borneo: A Jungle Nightmare
We are at the end of the 90s. Pierce is the owner of Bloody Disgusting, a “shock site” that makes splatter film publishing its main activity. In front of him, in his Chicago studio, are Jessica, his historical collaborator and Alessandro, an Italian video-reporter, visibly shaken up.
They have just returned from an expedition to BORNEO that he financed, to retrieve from Josh, a friend of Alessandro’s, a tape in which disgusting acts of cannibalism by a local tribe were filmed.
But not everything went as planned…
