Krater Offers Weirdest Special Edition Ever

We’ve run across some weird and wonderful special editions in our time, but never as odd as the newly announced $10,000 Edition of Krater.  We’ve been hammering this sexy release for some time now (expect an incoming review any day) and expected nothing more than a standard retail edition upon its release.  How wrong we were.  So… what can we expect?  Steelbook? Resin statue?  Publisher’s kidney in a jar?  Nope.  The game’s designer, Victor Magnuson, will come to your home – wherever it may be in the world – and personally deliver your copy of the game.  Not only that, but the man himself will also get his hands dirty in your kitchen and whip you both up a meal before settling down to play the game with you.  No, this isn’t a belated April Fool… it is serious, as far as we can tell.  In fact, Gunnar Johansson, Brand Manager at developer Fatshark had this to say:

“We wanted to do something extra for the game connoisseur, something different that you wouldn’t get with most other games. And is there anything cooler than having the Game Designer come to your home and play the game with you? Well, perhaps if he also would prepare a superb meal before the gaming session – so we added that.”

So, what can the purchaser expect on the menu and should they be worried?  No, rest assured, as according to Fatshark,Victor is a self-proclaimed ‘great cook’ and the $10,000 Edition buyer can either be surprised by Victor’s choice of the day, or choose between several dinner options, such as the Viking Burger, Swedish Meatballs, Fisksaetra Pita Burger Special, or Ester Ore Pretto Pizza.

If you can’t quite stretch to 10k for that edition, then the more regular collector’s edition of Krater will be available on Steam or the Fatshark store, while the UK retail edition will be published by Lace Mamba Global.

As odd as this edition may be, we’re actually hungry thinking about it now. We don’t know what the hell is in a Viking Burger, but it sounds like the sort of thing that Jon Pall Sigmarsson  would have eaten, which makes it instantly cool.
