by Rainier on May 8, 2012 @ 1:32 a.m. PDT

Krater is a lush post-apocalyptic top down RPG and the base pillars are crafting, exploration and consequence. Consequence brings not only the ability for the characters to level up and improve themselves, but also permanent injuries and death.

Descend into the Krater and experience a finely tuned top-down action RPG in a lush yet gritty post-apocalyptic setting. Krater features both single player and a co-op online campaign, set in a multifaceted post-apocalyptic city located within a gigantic impact crater.

Lead your assembled team of hardened survivors, making your living as hired guns, trouble shooters and scavengers, in search for fame and fortune. The innovative control setup allows you to effectively command a party of three characters simultaneously.


Monitor and manage aggro and threat levels, boost and buff, deal damage and use crowd control abilities to ensure that your squad will triumph on the beautifully rendered battlegrounds.

“We have three weapons that have one thing in common, besides being badass, and that thing is that they don’t have a name. There was some bad communications between the weapon designers and the name creators. And then Gunnar came up with naming them The Gunnernator I, II and III – that gave us all brain freeze.” says Martin Wahlund, CEO and Executive Producer, Fatshark. “Please help us out with naming these three weapons – or they might just end up being the Gunnernators!”

Want to be a Senior Lead Weapon Name Creator for Krater? Then help us out, name one—or all—of the weapons below. The best names will be in the game on release day, and you will be in the game credits. Way to be a Senior Lead Weapon Name Creator!

“The three best names will end up in the game, which means that anyone picking up the game will be able to use the weapon you named. And better yet, you will be in the official game credits under ‘Senior Lead Weapon Name Creator Director’ – or something shorter.” Says Victor Magnuson, Game Designer, Fatshark. “Now be creative and save us all from the Gunnernator!”

Explore the crater city and its surroundings in search of new equipment and recruits, or launch yourself directly into the captivating single player story campaign. Manage your team by customizing your characters and the composition of your team. Enhance abilities and attributes gained through experience. Equip unique weapons and loot obtained by mastering grueling missions and defeating tough enemies.

A versatile crafting system further enables the player to experiment and come up with individual solutions to difficult challenges and develop a personal play style, ranging from fast paced and action oriented to brainy and tactically intricate. Since Krater caters toward a hardcore PC audience, the game features a mode where the player runs the risk of injuring or even losing team members permanently. The higher risk of this mode will be offset by the promise of better rewards. Do you dare to enter the Krater?
