Dragon Age: Inquisition gets appropriately epic box art

Perhaps it's just a side effect from the afterglow to watching this week's Game Of Thrones, but I can't seem to stop staring at the recently revealed box art for Dragon Age: Inquisition.

The Mandate promises a space RPG adventure among the Tsars

No! There can never be enough space games. After all, space is infinite, so there's plenty of room for them. Not like other overused game themes. I mean, zombies? How many rotting carcasses can you fit in the ground? Not infinite of them. Erm, I think this intro is getting away from me. Ah, space! Here's another game set there: The Mandate, which is being described as a "Tsarist space opera RPG" and is now seeking Kickstarter funding.

If that wasn't indie enough, its developers have also released Scourge of the Mandate, a free - and I'm going to tactfully sidestep copyright here - Adventure, Owned By Your Choices, Of Which You Will Choose, On Your Own. Phew, that was smoooooth.
