Hey all, there used to be a trailer for this game that had a rave at the end. Cant find it on you tube:(. I loved the song played in that rave scene was wondering if anyone knew the rtist or how to find and purchase it?
Krater is a squad based post-apocalyptic real time strategy RPG. Now that may seem like a mouthful of gaming mechanics, but imagine it being a mix of Diablo, and a little bit of MMO. I know that sounds unconventional, but bear with me.
You control a squad of three 'soldiers' who can be of various classes. You can also have many different characters in your 'reserve' that you may swap at any time outside of combat. These classes range from tanks, healers, and damage dealers; thus, the MMO trinity. (For those unaware of the MMO 'trinity'; it is the basic make up of a group you would need in order to tackle a difficult dungeon/challenge; a tank to absorb and take all the damage, a healer to heal the tank and group, and a damage dealer (one or more) in order to drop your enemies.) While you do not have to follow the trinity, I would imagine that it would be difficult to conquer the harder challenges in the game without it.
What's so exciting about this concept is that instead of executing just one role as you would in an MMO, you control all three roles. You're controlling your tank, your healer, your damage dealer, and their abilities all at once. Now, each soldier only has 2 independent skills each as opposed to the many you would have otherwise, but this makes the game-play a lot less complex and allows you to micromanage each squad member without feeling overwhelmed.
The game is entirely real time so you are required to think on your feet when you engage in combat. Not only that, but the game is loot driven as well, you are able to loot your enemies after taking them down and there is a chance to get some great weaponry. If you enjoy real time strategy and diablo-esque dungeon crawlers with some loot and crafting mechanics, this is the game for you. Did I mention it had coop?
