>A fun little strategy game by Austrian design house Max Design, Burntime combines strategy and role playing game elements into a fairly unique experience. Ironically, it doesn’t succeed completely in either genre, but it’s still fun!
In this game you aim to become a leader of your people — the tribes scattered in a post-apocalyptic valley. Although there’s no reference about where the game takes place on our planet, you see from the beginning it’s a vast valley ravaged by some nuclear tragedy, where civilization is only a memory. As you travel through the valley, you’ll see ruins of old cities that are no more, radioactive wastes, dust and deserts. Most settlements are nomadic and extremely poor. Radioactivity also mutated people and animals alike, so you’re never safe enough out there.
