Lace Mamba Global has today launched a retail edition of Fatshark’s Krater: Shadows over Solside. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, Krater: Shadows over Solside is a top down action role-playing game (RPG), based on gameplay elements such as crafting, exploration and consequence.
‘Krater’ is Swedish for crater. The videogame takes place in a gigantic impact crater where cities have been built on and even whole nations emerged from the rubble and aftermath of a huge bomb explosion. The centre of the crater is an abyss that stretches deeper into Earth than anyone has ever been able to dig. One of the players’ main goals is to build a team and try to get as deep as possible into the abyss. The videogame offers several joinable factions and groups, such as the Free-diggers for example, bands of fortune seekers who compete with each other to excavate valuable pre-Armageddon technology from an endless system of tunnels, caves and bunkers, called the Underside.
Krater: Shadows over Solside features extensive crafting (craft unique abilities, weapons and items) and character persistence where both injuries and experience work in conjunction are key elements to evolve the player’s team over time. Krater: Shadows over Solside combines combat mechanics of action-RPGs with top-down tactics of classic old-school dungeon crawlers.
Krater: Shadows over Solside is available at retail stores throughout the UK and Ireland now, and will launch on 31st August 2012, in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest releases from Lace Mamba Global.
