GameInfo: Krater is a squad based roleplaying game set in a colorful post-apocalyptic world. It combines the combat mechanics of action-rpgs with the top-down view of the classic old-school RPG and RTS games. The game brings you far into the future of a post-apocalyptic Sweden. Once home to IKEA, Vikings and Minecraft, today its primitive inhabitants scavenge the broken overgrown world for technological artifacts. At the rim of an impact site known as the Krater, three factions vie for control over the wound opening up into the world below. Consisting of an endless series of caves and tunnels filled with old world treasures and perils, the Underside stretches into the depths of the fallen Swedish civilization. You arrive at the Krater with your team of freelancers to take part in the goldrush where people come back rich or don’t come back at all.
Hit-Reset In conclusion, while a little rough around the edges and not without it’s flaws, there is much to enjoy in Krater. Coming so hot on the heels of Diablo III, a highly polished dungeon crawling experience, it does pale significantly, but allowances must be made for the fact it is an indie title with a vastly different budget. With a high level of developer support and an upcoming multiplayer mode, hopefully Krater will go on to be a sleeper hit, not just of the summer, but perhaps the year. Read Full Review
