Krater teaser promises dungeon delving beta soon

Sunday, 5th February 2012 22:16 GMT By Brenna Hillier

A tactical dungeon crawler with an emphasis on crafting? Yes pwease. Check out the brief teaser for indie effort Krater through the break.

From Swedish developer Fatshark, the team behind Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West, Krater has a number of interesting-sounding mechanics, including character persistance which extends to injuries. Consequences? Now we’re ticking some cool boxes.

There seems to be a great deal of variety packed in, with parties of three; four classes and a “multitude” of specialisations; craft-able abilities, weapons and items; and seamless single-player and multiplayer.

The designers name drop X-com and Syndicate, and have outlined a robustly conceptualised world and plot. Krater is expected to go into beta this month; you can sign up on its website.

Thanks, Edo!

    Are you sure you can sign up yet? I mean, yeah, they said so in the video, but I can’t find anything about that through the link.

    Dieselpunk! Yaaaaaay!

    Dieselpunk is such an underused genre. :| And steampunk is far, far, far too overused by everything ever. (This is kind of why I’m glad that Guild Wars 2 went with clockpunk.)

    But yeah, this looks pretty interesting.
