Kai had the chance to check out the game a couple months ago during E3. Here’s an excerpt from his preview:
Even with how early on Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is, the project does show a lot of promise. Exploring the world at one’s leisure then shifting that same map into tactical combat is a smart decision that I’ve come to explore in cRPGs. Once the AI gets tweaked and fine-tuned to be more approachable by the player, I could see this pen and paper project mutate into a great RPG to keep an eye out for.
Rosh is checking it again today at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. Stay tuned on Wccftech for his updated report on the game’s progress towards the December 4th release.
