New Krater Screenshots Available
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Worthplaying recently posted some new screenshots of Fatshark's upcoming squad based RPG, Krater. The top down game takes place inside a giant impact crater where the inhabitants live on in the aftermath of a bomb. The game will be available for Windows PCs on June 12, while a Mac version will be available in July.

THE WORLD AND ITS INHABITANTS

Krater takes place in a lush post-apocalyptic game world, a gigantic impact crater where cities and even nations have has been built on the aftermath of a bomb. It is a colorful game exeperince, where genre-typical deserts are replaced by nordic pine forests and red wooden cottages.

BASIC GAME CONCEPT

It combines the combat mechanics of action-rpgs with the top-down tactics of the classic old-school games such as Syndicate and X-Com. The rich world opens up for the players via exploration of the immense world map.

Extensive crafting (craft unique abilities, weapons and items) and character persistence where both injuries and experience work in conjunction are key elements to evolve your team over time and get ready to enter into the end-game.

CORE MECHANICS

  • Extensive crafting (craft unique abilities, weapons and items)
  • Character persistence where both injuries and experience work in conjunction to evolve your team over time.
  • Simultaneously control a squad of 3 characters chosen from 4 different main classes with a multitude of specializations.
  • Prepare your team of Freediggers for the end-game and try to get as deep as you can into the main shaft, a dungeon crawler of massive proportions.
  • Singleplayer/multiplayer which blend seamless with each other. Use your progress from the single player campaign in coop missions and the other way around.

Exploring Diablo III
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 5 comments

Edge Magazine has posted a new review of the recently released Diablo III from Blizzard Entertainment. The long awaited third installment in the action RPG series once again returns players to the demon plagued world of Sanctuary.

From the review:

Diablo III is filled with marvels – its fantasy world has been redrawn in rich colours and mineral textures, eschewing po-faced Tolkien influences for the pulpiness of a horror comic as it paints its forests and oases in deep turquoises and throbbing reds. These environments provide pacing as well as atmosphere, and quests send you between towns, vast explorative areas, and a variety of internal spaces that defy the ‘dungeon’ classification. Blizzard’s tilesets can handle anything from the balanced architecture of cathedrals to the organic sprawl of spiders’ nests, and it’s nearly impossible to tell when you’ve switched between designed landscapes and randomisation.

The game’s filled with detailing, too, from midnight springs turning jerry-rigged waterwheels to useful clutter, such as walls and chandeliers primed to collapse on your foes. The monsters, meanwhile, are a wonder to behold and a joy to destroy, whether they’re Writhing Deceivers (fat, snake-bodied menaces wriggling on scaly bellies) or Grotesques (tottering doughballs that explode when killed and can set off chain reactions). Dune Dervishes, meanwhile, are spectral hard men who spin at you with bladed skirts. They’re joined, in the space of just a single area, by a set of gruesome delights bearing names such as Gore Harrier, Spine Hewer and Copperfang Lurker. There’s certainly nothing wrong with Diablo’s imagination.
