Coming Soon(ish) – Dark Future: Blood Red States


It sounds kind of ominous saying that Dark Future is coming soon, but don’t sweat it – I really am just talking about a game here.  The electronic gaming community seems to be exploding with Games Workshop content lately, and while I’ll be the first to admit I know little about the company or their properties I’m aware that they’ve been around for a long time and their stuff seems to be quite popular.  This particular IP takes place in the post apocalyptic America of 2023, which isn’t too far around the corner from us now.


You run an agency that helps clean up the wasteland between Patrolled Zones, making sure the NoGos don’t try to go where they shouldn’t go.  You’ll have to manage both cars and drivers, making sure that jobs get handled and drivers have everything they need to do their tasks.  The press release describes this as a “turn based strategy game, played out in simultaneous real-time action”.  I assume that means everyone will “move” and then you’ll get to see the results of your choices.  However it ultimately works out, if the game itself looks half as good as the teaser video, this is literally going to be one wild ride.

I’ve seen nothing yet to indicate what platform(s) this bad boy will arrive on, but I’m going to keep my fingers crossed that it at least lands on iOS devices.  The developer, Auroch Digital, has already teamed up with Games Workshop to produce two outings in the Chainsaw Warrior universe for iOS, so it seems logical that Apple’s mobile platform would be one target for Dark Future: Blood Red States as well.
