This crudeness also adds some humble German-RPG feel to these games (arbeit first, spass second, and viel glueck! if…

Happened with my biz partners a few times, sorry. They were pre-evaluated either by a major publisher by Steam reception average or by Metacritic score average.

Problem is that such justice warrior review bombs often misfire.

Immediately preordered as soon as it was announced aeons ago .. . Btw, being a Bitmap Books release, you can buy it right now, as a digital pdf copy is also yours with the purchase.
