  • J.R.R. Tolkien would LOVE this: a role playing game "Iron Danger" (Linux) based on The Kalevala !

    The game, developed by Action Squad Studios, just got a publisher with a fine record.

    Daedalic Entertainment is known for games such as "The Whispered World", "Deponia", "Gollum", "The Pillars Of The Earth", "State Of Mind" and "Shadow Tactics".
