Giant robot alert!
We have a giant robot alert!
You probably know I’ve got a weakness for giant robots.

Gateway Games running How To Serve Man Kickstarter

Gateway Games got out the pots and pans and has lit a fire under their How to Serve Man Kickstarter campaign. Sort of an “Iron Chef” meets “Twilight Zone” meets “Soylent Green” type of thing, players play as intergalactic chefs trying to create the best dish where the main ingredient is people (cue Charlton Heston clip here…). Will your meal be the one that impresses the celebrity chefs? Or will you suffer the bitter taste of defeat… like the pith on an orange… that stuff’s really bitter. When trying to get zest off an orange, be sure to stay away from the pith. Seriously.
