  • Looks interesting. Cant wait to play this.I also like how this is going to steam right away too. Focus one system, reduces dev time and boom games done in no time flat.  YAY

  • Jeez, 3:01am Kyle? Guess someone couldn't sleep last night

  • The jump from one genre of gaming to another one could prove to be quite fun as long as each "gaming world" is given it's due justice.

  • Theres already an image comic called Bedlam staring madder red...

  • Undead Space Marines?

  • I like seeing novels become video games and vice-versa.
