I was twelve years old when a movie scarred me for life. That film is Ruggero Deodato’s Cannibal holocaust. I rented it back then because of the comparisons with I film I enjoyed, the Blair Witch Project. That film is Ruggero Deodato’s Cannibal holocaust. This low-budget mockumentary realistic gore made people thought it’s a snuff film and I can’t blame them. He got arrested for this film. The actors of the movie appeared on a press conference to prove its just a film and its not real. Ruggero Deodato is now back and he did a videogame this time around.
They didn’t specify in the trailer though if it’s in Malaysia or Indonesia as Borneo forest covers both countries. A fan asked if it’s in Indonesia. The developers replied yes.
BORNEO: A Jungle Nightmare is a 2d point and click game. It looked like a combination of Japanese visual novels and those 90s Sierra soft point and click horror games. The art style reminds of the game “I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream” because 90s inspired 2d animation. The 90s vibes is very fitting because its set in the 90s. The game is about the owner of a shock image site who collaborates with a historian and an Italian video journalist in an expedition to the jungles of Borneo. Depending on how the player played, the game have two possible endings. Most likely we are going to have a good ending and a bad ending.
I won’t be shocked if the game gets banned in both Malaysia and Indonesia because of the negative portrayal of the Bornean indigenous people. They are head hunters in the past but they are not cannibals. The game is completely fictional. People should not see it as a form of truth. The game will be cross generation and multiplatform. For PC, Ps4,Ps5,Xbox one and Xbox series X.
