Visit Not-Japan Today: Kenshi

Kenshi's alpha version launches today, which is excellent news because when I first wrote about it I'm sure lots of people thought, "This open-world, unscripted RPG sounds brilliant but I'd wager it'll never exist in any playable form, so thanks for getting my hopes up, you swine." Turns out I'm not a swine. The alpha is far from complete, as explained with detailed honesty here, but payment of $10 will give you immediate access to this and every future version of the game. If you are leery about paying without trying, fear not, there is a free trial from which the paid version unlocks. It'll be at the main website and on Desura. Trailer buried in the sands below.

Once I've spent some time with the full alpha, I'll share some thoughts, but since plenty of people have expressed an interest I thought it best to keep you up to date. The release is due later today, so bookmark here and prepare to go a-roaming.
