Working in the fast-moving field of electronic gaming journalism can be dangerous. If I'm not watching the latest trailer for Gunface Organ-Splatter: Uncensored Edition, I'm likely to be quivering in a corner because the latest trailer for Gunface Organ-Splatter: Uncensored Edition contained one too many close-ups of quivering viscera. Such things are not ideal viewing through the hazy veil of an insomniac's hangover. Today, I thought I was safe. Skulls of the Shogun's launch(ed on an OS people want to use) trailer surely wouldn't trouble my nerves? Click below for children eating skulls and losing all of their flesh.
That wasn't too awful, was it?
I'm definitely going to have a go at this, but it'll have to wait until I've finished the other eleventy billion games that are currently clamouring for attention. Fortunately, you don't have to wait for my thoughts. Alec swallowed the translucent poison-pill and glitched into Windows 8 to take a look:
OK: Skulls of the Shogun is great. It’s a great turn-based strategy game, it’s a great indie game, it’s a great game. Definitely, definitely, definitely get it if you have Windows 8. If you don’t… Hmm.
And now you can definitely get it even if you don't have Windows 8. More on the sorry saga of exclusivity right over here.
You can buy the game through the Humble Store, which avoids some regional pricing malarkey that sees some regions charged more if they buy via Steam. And you get a Steam key from the Humble Store anyhow.
