RPG set in 2712 on a planet that is almost exhausted
In Hired Guns you get to play a RPG in a post apocalypse Earth, that got to where it is not because it wasn't able to prevent some nuclear strike, but because the Earth resources were almost depleted; thus, diverse factions are trying to occupy the Earth and get the remaining resources, and try to go from there, and scrape a living off of it. But, unfortunately, war is raging, and thus, the factions that can hire mercenaries are the ones that get the better chance at it. So, try and play it and see where it leads you from there. The game is pretty interesting gameplay wise, classic RPG like; however, it also has a certain feel of action/adventure, with a good story, that you wouldn't expect, from a mercenaries mostly kind of game. The game plays only via 4 players, and the screen is split in 4. This can be a bit daunting, as each player has a very small window in which to see what to do. But, the perspective makes for a cool game, for something less mundane. So gather your retro DOS gaming friends and fire it up! Else download Robinsons Requiem, another RPG, and a pretty cool one.
