Funcom partners with Dreamloop Games to bring Moons of Madness to console

Dreamloop Games and Funcom have announced a partnership to bring Moons of Madness to consoles. Announced earlier this year, Moons of Madness is in development at Rock Pocket Studios for PC.

Dreamloop Games is a Finnish studio and it will be handling the game’s port to PS4 and Xbox One.

Moons of Madness is a Lovecraftian, sci-fi horror game set on Mars. Players step into the moon boots of Shane Newehart, a technician. Stationed at the secret Invictus outpost on Mars, Newehart has a security clearance that means he is unaware of the mysterious signal.

Moons of Madness

Dreamloop Games has previously worked on Bus Simulator 18, Stardust Galaxy Warriors, Ostwind and Race Arcade. However, as Dreamloop CEO Joni Lappalainen says, this project is more personal;

This is a really great opportunity for Dreamloop to create a strong partnership with Funcom, but it’s also great for us on a personal level. Working with Funcom is a great personal milestone for all of us here at Dreamloop.

They developed a project we loved – Conan Exiles. To work with a strong publisher on an interesting project is great, but to work with a team you admire is absolutely incredible.

Moons of Madness is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One digitally and will be available just prior to Halloween. A release date has not yet been set, but Dreamloop is confident it can assist in getting the ambitious project ready for launch.

Follow Newehart on his slow descent into madness and question everything. Set in the Secret World Legends universe, Moons of Madness shares the lore and mythology of the former game.

  • Experience true cosmic horror
    With your only hope of rescue hundreds of thousands of miles away, you will be forced to explore the real-world fears of isolation and paranoia, enhanced with supernatural elements and cosmic horror. Terrifying visions and monstrous apparitions will make you question what is real and what is not as the very fabric of reality threatens to tear at the seams. 
  • Explore the darker side of Mars
    Navigate a functioning Mars base in a game that uses non-fiction elements to immerse players in a believable setting. Overcome obstacles using computers, electrical systems, rovers, solar panels and more, then go beyond the outpost and explore the darker side of Mars.

Moons of Madness will be available later this year.
