The End is Already Nigh

No reviewer should approach a game with preconceptions. That being said, it’s hard to stay impartial when Rune II is released on November 12 only for its developer, Human Head Studios, to close its doors on November 13. The collapse of Human Head Studios was even a shock to Rune II’s publisher, who are now frantically trying to assemble a new team to look after the game post-launch.
