This Thursday The 14th, Play Camp Keepalive

Valentine's Day is the one with the pestilent patchwork bears and the twisted offerings of edible hearts, right? I'd have waited until tomorrow to post about Camp Keepalive, as it'd be a fitting game to share on Jason Voorhees' birthday, but today's macabre celebration of the vulnerability of the human pumping station is fitting as well.

Camp Keepalive is a turn-based strategy game set in a camp straight out of an 80's horror movie. Save the helpless and dull-witted campers from an onslaught of monsters with a team of counsellors, each with a special power.

If that description didn't herald a very fine game, I'd be grossly disappointed. Thankfully, Camp Keepalive is splendid. Video below.

The demo provides an endless onslaught of top-down terror, as shamblers shamble and werewolves devour every last child. The theme is strong and the variety of monster behaviour makes for compelling tactical decisions. I hunger for more.
