Designer Interview: Wreck Age‘s Anton Zaleski

Back in January I was contacted by Matt Sears and Anton Zaleski of Hyacinth Games. They have a cool game called Wreck-Age, a RPG and miniature wargame set in a post-apocalyptic world filled with factions all with their hearts set on different goals… It’s a bit like Fallout where the world has been ravaged and . . . → Read More: Designer Interview: Wreck Age‘s Anton Zaleski
