New Independently Produced Post-Apocalyptic MMORPG

Hello El Moochadores! Right now on Kickstarter there’s a new MMORPG seeking funding. Produced by EFROB Gamebox, Skies is a Ukrainian developed RPG set in a post-apocalyptic world. I’m just guessing English is a second language to the game makers, but excuse that and check out the game’s synopsis below:

In the early 21st century solar activity increases dramatically. Just within two weeks, people lose all the benefits of civilization: cities are cut off electricity, factories are stopped, streets are immersed into chaos and disorder.

People are dying: disasters, heat, fires, diseases and mess quickly destroy the population. Cities and forests are burnt out… Rains are now dirty and dangerous, water supply systems do not work, the lack of food and drink is killing human civilization.a6d63899c365d498cbc62ab575263cc3_large People are searching for a shelter, hiding from the riots, heat and ash rains. Ash mixed with radioactive dust has veiled the sky, thus depriving them of the last source of energy and communication. The planet falls asleep… sunlight no longer passes through the dense layers of clouds.

Later on destruction of human empire has been restored after the terrible disaster. Game starts in 2150-2170. Some people survived in shelters that had filters cleaning the air and water from the ashes. Burning reactors faded after centuries of storms and rains, dust began to settle on the surface of the planet and the sun’s rays reappeared after 150 years of darkness.

Is the mankind strong enough to restore what they’ve destructed over the last century? What life is going to be like now?

According to their web site the game is already in development, and when finished will have 8 square kilometers of in game space; A complicated multi-level economic system dependent on player actions; PVP and TVT combats (what’s a TVT?), and a novel expanding the universe and characters. Check out the Kickstarter (link above) for more information on rewards for pledges, or visit the Skies Website. You can also follow the games progress on Facebook. Below I’ve posted the Kickstarter promo video along with a video showing a sample of the game play.

Enjoy!

Grimm: The Killing Time

Grimm_3_KillingTime

An Atomic Moo Book Review of Tim Waggoner’s New Novel

EISBIBER! I can’t stop saying that, and I think it’s become my new favorite word. If you’re not familiar with the world of Grimm; an Eisbiber is kind of like a “were-beaver”. 221-Bud_wogedI don’t know what sort of bad karma you have to accumulate in a previous life to be reborn as a were-beaver, but it’s got to be pretty bad. Not that this book is about were-beavers, it’s not (but that would make one hell of a good story…). However; it is a story about a deadly shape shifting wesen, a Wechselbalg, preying on Portalnd residence to sustain it’s own life! Here’s the synopsis:

A mysterious creature stalks the streets of Portland, looking for a new identity. With one touch it can dissolve its victim, assuming their appearance, personality, and memories. When Portland homicide detectives Nick Burkhardt and Hank Griffin are called in to track down a missing person, Nick comes face to face with the changeling, but its powers have an unexpected effect on the Grimm, unleashing a deadly Wesen plague and untold chaos.

For the most part I enjoyed this novel. Written by veteran horror novelist, Tim Waggoner, This is the third “Grimm” novel published by Titan Books, and like the previous two novels, Killing Time does an excellent job of representing the characters and “vibe” established by the television series. Waggoner is an exceptional writer and his prose translates into mental images with incredible ease. My only complaint about this book, and novels like it, is that there isn’t an enduring consequence to the actions that take place with in it’s pages. Because this novel exist between already produced episodes and seasons, I (the reader) already know that the essential characters will survive intact with no effect on future events of the story and all things will revert to the “status quo” by the end of the story. In a way, it’s like this book exists, but also doesn’t exist at all! Which, is kind of frustrating because a good story should surprise it’s readers and take risks that most serialized novels (of any t.v. show) just aren’t willing to take. That being said; Grimm fans should still be able to enjoy this novel, and the opportunities it provides to visit familiar wesen like Monroe, Rosalee, Capt. Renard, and Bud the were-beaver. And yes! I know he’s not a were-beaver, but from and outsider looking in, he so totally a were-beaver.

Grimm: The Killing Time is available in all major book stores, or you can get your copy (and the other Grimm novels) at Titanbooks.com!

Hawken: Genesis

cover

An Atomic Moo Comic Review of the Graphic Novel by Atomic Moo contributor; Numbers

Review Originally posted on True Game Truths and copied here with Permission

Legendary video game programmer John Carmack once said that “story in games is like story in porn movies: expected to be there, but not that important”. While that may have been the case back in 1993, when the first-person shooter was but a burgeoning genre, the modern arena is… a different story.

So much so that the makers of HAWKEN, the fast-paced multiplayer mech shooter, felt compelled to not only develop a backstory for their game,10 but to have it released as a hardcover graphic novel. Published in 2013, HAWKEN: Genesis “paints a hauntingly beautiful and engaging tale of ambition, loyalty, and betrayal set against a fantastic future world of corporate military warfare,” according to the back cover. A bold claim, but does the book deliver? READ ON TO FIND OUT!
