Whore of the Orient production gets $200,000 funding

Australian investment group backs former Team Bondi project

Australian trade and investment board Screens NSW has agreed to provide $200,000 in funding for Whore of the Orient, GamesIndustry International reports.

After L.A. Noire, Team Bondi set to work on Whore of the Orient, another mid-20th century cinematic thriller. The studio folded in 2011, the rights to the game and several of its developers were acquired by KMM Interactive Productions, and a lack of funds reportedly led KMM to halt production and lay off staff in April.

"Whore of the Orient is a unique and extraordinary story and game, and we are still actively pursuing the right investor to partner with," KMM co-founder Doug Mitchell told MCV in response to the rumored lay offs.

It appears work on the game can continue with this new round of funding, though at this point it remains an independent production without an announced publisher.
