    It's a bit weird, turn-based post-apocalyptic with PoE-looking interface.

    Is the morality system based on the dichotomy of "cunt" and "mate"?

    The morality system is kind of simplistic but a welcome addition nevertheless, since it's an important aspect of roleplaying that's neglected by most RPG games.

    There are probably less things trying to kill you in the post apocalypse future.

    Finally my years of fighting the native wildlife and bogans alike will pay off. I'm starting to get a bit overwhelmed by everything being post-apocalyptic but there's always a chance that the game will stand out as something great.

    Definitely worth keeping an eye on. Hopefully the Dev starts posting here so the Codex can make sure that Nazis aren’t judged too harshly by the morality mechanics.

    Looks interesting, but will there be a cameo by Cleve? Certainly he would survive the apocalypse in his bunker.

    The party size, the user interface, the dialogue menus. It's a turn-based, post-apocalyptic Infinity Engine game.

    No videogame has been able to capture the shitposting prowess of abbos either.
