Hooked Gamers writes: "Traditionally, games and movies have depicted post-apocalyptic worlds as barren deserts or as drab, depressive underground warrens. With lush environments that are teeming with life, Krater is a stubborn but colorful departure of either of these two settings.
In Krater, the apocalypse was caused by a single bomb, but one of epic proportions. On impact, it left a crater large enough for cities, even nations to be built up around. At its center, an immense abyss has formed that is fabled to be full of riches from before the apocalypse. Bands of treasure hunters called Free-Diggers seek out these riches and you, of course, do not want to be left behind."
