Out today for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is a game that has been on our radar since it was announced earlier this year. The post-apocalyptic setting, duck and pig protagonists, and turn-based strategy put it firmly on our radar. And after spending a week leaving the Ark to scavenge the ruins of human civilisation we're ready to share our review.

From a ‘what style of game is it’ standpoint, Mutant Year Zero offers up a different take on the sort of turn-based squad combat of something like XCOM. In that it also focuses on stealth mechanics, exploration, and RPG-progression. Where new equipment and crafting goes pig-hand in pig-hand with skill trees – which are of course, called mutations here. When coupled with the wonderful art direction and narrative elements there’s an old-school isometric RPG quality to the presentation and exploration that feels fresh. A dash of Baldur’s Gate perhaps, or the more recent Pillars of Eternity from Obsidian Entertainment.
