ICv2: There Is a Bounty on Sand W.O.R.M.s in 'Terror Below'

February 5th - via:
Renegade Game Studios will release the monster-hunting game Terror Below in 2019. The game is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter. Designed by Mike Elliott (Thunderstone, Quarriors!), Terror Below takes place in the dusty deserts of Nevada, where government experiments have gone rogue and escaped the containment facility. Now the scientists need the locals help in collecting the sand W.O.R.M.s (Weapons of Remote Massacre) and their eggs. The Worms are hiding underground, but they are attracted by vibrations, and they are vicious when they attack. Players must grab a vehicle and navigate the difficult terrain to collect Worm Eggs and deliver them to bounty locations. (Read More)
