You know what we need more of in games? Puke. And Death Trash has puke in it. And questionable meat products. And gratuitous swears. And totally disposable NPCs. And something about a “flesh hive”, and I don’t even know what a flesh hive is, but I want to know more.
Currently in development for PC at indie studio Crafting Legends in Berlin, Death Trash is a post-apocalyptic cyberpunk RPG inspired by Ultima 7 and Planescape: Torment (and, I’d expect, the original two Fallout games), featuring “a focus on the narrative and dialogue”, real-time combat, item crafting, and grimy retro-pixel aesthetics. It’s been in the works since 2015, apparently, but I only discovered it on Twitter over the weekend and now I’m completely infatuated with it. And not just because of the puke, but also definitely because of the puke.
Just wanted to present a few new player variations, but then someone began puking and soon everyone took part. pic.twitter.com/8BdqRoDI1R

According to the official website, the game will be out “when it’s done”, so maybe tomorrow or maybe never, but in the meantime, we can look at these screenshots and dream of our own puke party.
