Delightfully dark and original with some The Prisoner like surreal stuff in the last act.Tempting to start up a new run of Fallout 1 and go straight for Dogmeat... [[SPOILER]]
Low tech sci-fi/western that I nearly turned off, but since there isn't enough good post apocalyptic stuff around I stayed with it. Story didn't really engage me, but I enjoyed the (rather Fallout inspired) world they'd created. Reminds me that I still need to find and watch A Boy and His Dog.
