Bless ‘em, you can’t say Piranha Bytes aren’t ambitious. The German studio behind the Gothic and Risen RPG series do make wonky games, but they have a charm. Go read about Alec’s adventures with Risen 3: Titan Lords to get the idea. After tackling fantasy and pirates, their next open-world RPG will go post-apocalyptic.
Piranha Bytes have announced they’re making ELEX [official site] in collaboration with Nordic Games. They refer to it as “Eclectic, Lavish, Exhilarating, Xenial” and I honestly can’t tell whether that’s an earnest acronym or they’re copying MDK with its “Madonna Dates Kylie?” silliness.
