Frozen State Kickstarter

A new Kickstarter for Frozen State from a startup called Snow Arc looks to raise £60,000 for a survival/horror RPG set in a post-apocalyptic frozen Siberia (not to be confused with pre-apocalyptic frozen Siberia). Here's a trailer showing a work in progress alpha, and here's word:

The game takes place in a secret Soviet city, which was partly destroyed. You will get by, side by side, with vicious alien hybrids, ruthless bandits and other survivors like you, who haven’t lost hope. Exploring new areas, scavenging and fighting for your life, you will be making hard choices between greater good and your personal goals, which will lead you to different outcomes.

Our inspiration comes from many sources: games like Fallout 1 and 2, S.T.A.L.K.E.R Shadow of Chernobyl, Metro 2033, Half-Life 2, Resident Evil; films The Thing, Alien(s),Prometheus, The Road, The Myst; our favorite writers Isaac Asimov, Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, Stanislaw Lem and many others.

Out of the Blue

Wow, two days into summer and it's sweltering already. I have some ribs to cook for dinner, and we're not far off from being able to cook them without lighting a fire. Oh well, I can't dawdle... we have thunderstorms in the forecast for the coming week. I guess that's typical here in the Florida New York City area.
