News & Notes
Check out the Indie Gogo project for a new, mass market edition of this survival themed game from Swedish publisher Fryx Games. The original versions were handmade and quite expensive. This project brings the price down and should allow more people a chance to enjoy this fun game.
We interviewed Enoch from Fryx Games at Essen 2011. Link
