Posthuman Studios' translation of Degenesis is as stunning and stellar as one would expect from the makers of Eclipse Phase. The book is beautiful and presents a wonderful and insightful look at a post-apocalyptic setting, with a richness of character and setting that is often missing in many games.

The mechanics are very solid, with a two-fold difficulty and skill rating that creates an interesting curve that allows a lot of possibilities.

The game itself isn't one for the kiddies-it's violent, there's some swearing, and there's at least a couple images with things you wouldn't necessarily want a young kid seeing, but it's not terribly crude like some games get when they're taking license with a more mature audience.

That said, even though it's not exactly a family-friendly game, Degenesis provides a great mechanical backdrop for an in-depth setting, and it's definitely worth a look; it's a great price for the amount of content you get, and you support indie gaming.
