When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

“Players fight as Katrin, an ethical, good-hearted Cop who is working in a city infected with evil and run by a corrupt government that controls like “big brother.”. This really makes achieving justice an intriguing and challenging goal for the player,” says Jay Podilchuk, the producer at Strategy First.
