Spielgefährten, now live and in color!

The corona virus affects us all, in one way or another. Although the Rat King is a small team and there is no need for us to work at home now, we still feel the effects of the lock-down. In order to get rid of the uneasiness a bit we dusted off our Spielgefährten podcast, where we talk about games and game design.

This time we did a (German) live-stream on Twitch about Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Fallen, a third-person shooter from 2000. We did a poll on Twitter beforehand, asking which character we should play (you can choose between Sisko, Worf and Kira). It was more popular that I'd thought it would be.

For over 2.5 hours we played as Kira shooting a lot of cardassians and talked about The Fallen, it level design, a bit of background, and other things. You can (re)watch our Let's Play here.

A week later now we want to do another live-stream; maybe even making it a habit and doing it every Wednesday. In any case, this time we will play some multiplayer games, local coop to be exact. You can choose between Overcooked, Out of Space and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime - but I am sure we will play more than one game. A bit of Spheroneers will be there to, probably.

So if you speak German and want to talk about games, visit our Twitch channel on Wednesday, 7pm (Berlin time). We also have a Discord!

Karoshi! on IndieDB

We recently uploaded an older project of ours, "Karoshi!", on IndieDB and also took the time to write a short Post Mortem. You know, just to share the unbelievable wisdom we gained while creating a multiplayer-only strategy game within one and a half months!

Developing the office-simulator "Karoshi!" was a great experience for us and one of the reasons why we founded Rat King Entertainment - we learned that we work productively as a team and even make something fun and complete within a short timespan.

You can learn more about the game and even download it on my portfolio - or just watch a video on YouTube.
