Krater  



Fatshark's Krater will make a hole in my wallet

How have I not heard of Krater before today?! 

The top-down RPG from Fatshark games (the folks behind Lead and Gold: Gangs of the West, and Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2), touts an intriguing setting and more than its fair share of seemingly nonsensical terms. Gerontocracy, a government ruled by the elderly, is something that I had to look at a few times before my brain recognized it as a legitimate term. 

It's still a work in progress, but preorders ranging from €14.99 ($20) to €99 ($131) can get you in on the game as it stands now, and all future updates. It's an interesting mix of Kickstarter and Minecraft-style alpha funding. I know what I'll be doing when I get paid.

Review: Krater

Considering its been nearly 12 years since the last Diablo and three years since Torchlight, Krater is here to fill that action-RPG niche that has long been ignored by PC developers. Wait, what’s that you say? Diablo III is already out and Torchlight II is on its way? Err, well, this is going to be awkward.more

Y2K is a surrealist fantasy told through the lens of a Murakami-loving hipster

Y2K began with protagonist Alex Eggleston returning to his his hometown from college. I watched him gaze out of bus windows until the scene shifted to him sharing a seat with a man in a panda costume. This was jarring enough to give Alex reason to look completely shaken and offended, and as the jaunty soundtrack suggested, should have felt super quirky and weird. It didn't.more
