OP  6/14/12 3:18:50 PM#1

While this isn't an MMO, we wanted to bring your attention to the launch of an interesting new indie game by the name of Krater. Developed by the folks at Fatshark, Krater, which was released yesterday (grab it on Steam here!), is a post-apolcalyptic take on old-school RPGs with a top-down RTS perspective.

The game features squad based gameplay, where the player will need to actively control three characters at once while adventuring throughout post-apolcayptic Sweden. Krater utilizes randomized dungeons and events to keep things fresh and interesting, and even offers tons of quests for players to complete. The harsh world of Krater also brings with it the threat of permadeath.

Crafting is integral to Krater as well. Players can craft everything from the typical items and weapons to their characters' own abilities.

Krater is currently singleplayer only, but will feature co-op gameplay in an update scheduled for release next month.

Sound interesting? Great! Because we're also giving away 15 keys for the game today! All you need to do is tell us what appeals to you most about Krater in the comments below and we'll PM our favorite entries with a free gift key to the game (redeemable on Steam)!

This line piqued my interest: 'post-apolcalyptic take on old-school RPGs with a top-down RTS perspective' :)

That and the crafting aspect, of course.

The crafting and setting are what really interest me about this game. The mini-squad aspect is pretty neat too.

Loving all these recently announced and launching indie titles. Never heard of this, but definitely keeping my eyes out on it now. Will probably wait to read a few reviews or see a gameplay video or two before I dive into the purchase; but it definitely looks intriguing.

The crafting system and setting and the co-op multiplayer thats coming in the game but still looks good for singleplayer, and the "Krater utilizes randomized dungeons and events to keep things fresh and interesting" bit cause the thing i hate most is when i get bored real quiek but what realy gets me is the oldskool style of this game "top view" Krater utilizes randomized dungeons and events to keep things fresh and interesting im a big fan of the original fallout and x-com games.

Krater is a unique spin on the action RPG genre.

It offers Holy trinity gameplay..

Its a unique mechanic that we have yet to see in the genre (or at least I havent).

From the artsyle to the music the game looks like an amazing experience.

I would love to get a copy if I could, been a fan of A-RPGs for over a decade and this looks like it could keep me busy for a very long time.

3 class squad, Post apoc/sci-fi, Crafting and unlimited gameplay? YES PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Playing: None

Waiting on: None

I <3 Permadeath. I also love sharks and anything fat is nice and squishy in my opinion so that's a plus. Post apocalyptic RPG is my homeboy and we get down with our jive lingo. If I had one word to describe why I deserve this key it would be "awesomeness" and if I had 4 words it would be "because you love me." Just saying throw me a key and I will own some Krater and love it like my own.

This is def a unique world for it's genre. I was watching one of my favorite youtubers play this game and it looked really interesting controlling 3 different characters which all have their own unique roles and skills. It would be an honor to play this and it even it has multiplayer which is lovely to grab some friends in on the fun!

Old-school RPG elements combined with a permadeath level of difficulty is a formula for a realy challenging and engaging world to explore and fight for. Co-op and crafting is something that will spice up the whole formula to an unpredictable level of replayability. All that mixed up in an post-apocalyptic world is something that You just have to experience.

I would LOVE to join the ranks of the Krater explorers.

Sci Fi Post Apocalyptic world but with some personality and color to it.  Throw in some crafting that actually matters and elements of RPG and RTS

Permanent death, extreme exploration and modifiable charactesr/abilities all sounds pretty amazing.

Not to mention, seems the developers plan to remain extremely active in not only bug fixes but adding additional content as well.

I love indies titles so much, sometimes more even than a AAA title from a big rich company, i watched videos of this game since a friend told me about it when he could managed to enter the alpha test, the squad system and the post apocalipse feel that it gives, and on top of that i love this genre so much. The fact that the company will update it later (introducing coop and others new features) make me want to play it the most, that means the developers wont move to the next proyect until they feel that they´d filled the gamer/consumer needs and suggestions to improve it. I'm in!!

Let's get this straight, it's a post-apocalyptic game set in the land of IKEA and Vikings and Minecraft. 

 

Vikings.

And IKEA.

Minecraft.

 

Vi-KEA-craft?

 

Yeah I want to play.

I really like the setting. It has a different feel than most of those Fantasy clones. The premise and details of the classes has defintely piqued my interest!

My head smells like buzzing

It looks interesting,   It may have that  diablo-esce Feel but  without the overdone hype.    Plus postapolytpic rarely done  wrong.

I have a wandering mind, but that's ok, it brings back presents.

6/14/12 4:04:33 PM#17

I've loved post-apocalyptic games since Gamma World first came out. Krater doesn't seem to have pinochle playing cockroaches, but then again, I've never liked pinochle. (Or cockroaches.)

It does look like it has humor and sarcasm. With that in mind,  I'm both intrigued and apprehensive about what is beneath those gasmasks.

As to the crafting system, the 'pieced together from salvage' look of the gear makes me think the crafting system might just be really interesting and fun. I saw duct tape in one of their crafting screenshots so Bodgers, SCAers, and Red Green fans rejoice. :p

 

I'd really like to find out just how cool this game might be. Michael and the rest of MMORPG, you are the ones that can help me answer that question. So in a post-apocalyptic spirit appropriate to this game, on bended (probably broken) knee in the morning haze (either biohazard or toxic fog), and before I collapse from radiation poisoning, I say,

"Please send me a key for Krater.".

If you do, I'll even let you name my character, so long as it's something that won't get me kicked out when they go multiplayer. :)

Lost my mind, now trying to lose yours...

As a Swede, I really love the subtle (or maybe not so subtle) inside-jokes for Swedish people.  Everything from funny Swedish frases ("Hallå, eller!?") to references to old Swedish children programs (Åberg 72 "Previously belonging to imaginary friend Malcolm"). My friend has the game, and we spent an whole evening looking for such "easter eggs" and laughing over them. It's pretty brilliant. Watch out for the Brölbjörn.

What i like the most is that it is developed by a small team in sweden which almost always means it will be good, plus i am a fellow swede and the game is set in sweden, nuff' said
