In an attempt to keep with the Halloween spirits for an extra few hours, I’ve created a headline as ghastly and ill-formed as Frankenstein’s monster. It’s a poor misunderstood thing but we should poke it with pitchforks and set fire to it anyhow, just in case it tries to teach us something about hubris, the human condition, or the violence that can result from alienation and shame.
Confederate Express definitely doesn’t deserve to be killed with fire though and it might even contain a few lessons for us as well. It’s on Kickstarter at the moment but has already reached its target and I can see why. The project page describes it as being “all about exploration, fighting enemies, and making your way towards the main goal: trying to survive while delivering a package.” A turn-based, strategic post-apocalyptic, role-play heavy Euro Truck Simulator? Not quite, but it looks delicious all the same.
