Apt: Guns & Robots Will Feature Customisable Gunfighters

Bulgarian studio Masthead didn't have a lot of luck with their ultra-ambitious MMO, Earthrise (which was a wonky attempt a free-roaming sci-fi shooter MMO, with elements from Eve and Tabula Rasa), which sadly closed earlier in the year.

Interview: Masthead Talk Earthrise

Since its announcement in 2008 things have been quiet at Earthrise towers. Bulgarian devs Masthead have been quietly working away on an apocalyptic sci-fi MMO, which has long been sounding like one of the more interesting prospects from Eastern Europe. A free-form, sandbox approach, a player-driven economy, politics, PvP and PvE conflict over resources, and a claim to be doing things in an "old school"…
