För mer än 25 år sedan skrev jag och några andra entusiaster på Lancelot Games rollspelet Wastelands (länk >>> ). De grymma utomjordingarna byrr ödelägger och underkuvar vår värld, medan överlevande människor söker skydd i vildmarken.

I am a great fan of the Studio Ghibli movies since many years and my particular favorite has always been Nausicaa of the Valley of the Winds: great post-apocalyptic world, good plot and a fantastic protagonist.

Belgian indie game maker Pajama Llama Games is working on an odd town-building simulator, Flotsam, in which you strive to construct a sustainable floating settlement in an ocean-covered post-apocalyptic world by using the flotsam of the fallen civilization.

I love the idea and the artwork on Pajama Llama’s site is appealing. So I hope these chaps will be able to launch the game in 2017 as they plan.
Snow Corporation is the pseudonym for a British chap who has created an amazing set of 1/6 scale figures. They belong to many settings: Dieselretro, Star Wars, post-Apocalyptic and so on. I like his craftsmanship; grim and worn are two hallmarks.
The adventurer above with his Sherpa robot could be one of the protagonists in my planned Red Sand diesel adventure novel (link >>> ).
Here is Snow Corporation’s site with lots of albums — link >>>
