High-Def Digest

During PAX South 2016, Brian Hoss from High-Def Digest was one one the journalists who got sucked into Karaski! He just put up his warm impressions up so go check them out! Here’s a few hilights:

‘Karaski: What Goes Up…’ intrigues me, and after playing, I came away quite charmed.

For anyone wants to spend some hours getting deep into a narrative, ‘Karaski: What Goes Up…’ seems perfect.

Thanks Brian!

Additionally, we got awarded the Editor Choice “Most Promising Plot” Award from Without the Sarcasm! Thanks guys, we hope to deliver on the promise on February 17! :)

Karaski Gets a Glowing First Preview from JustAdventure.com!

just-adventure-website

Karla Munger from JustAdventure.com has taken the time to preview our indie game and was left “quite impressed” after 3 (!) full playthroughs! Check out the full article; here are some highlight:


I did three full playthroughs of the preview build and each was surprisingly different. The narrative’s many variables, which can also impact the length of the game, give Karaski tremendous replay value.

You’re told that you’ll control the story and that your actions and choices will shape the past, present and future.

I wondered if it would be possible to weave this kind of narrative in a believable way. Well, I’m happy to report that Unbound Creations has done a masterful job of pulling it off.

… I predict that the final version of Karaski: What Goes Up… will be a wonderfully entertaining game that I won’t hesitate to recommend … Way to go, Unbound Creations!

Thanks Karla!
