Wiggin's View: Homeworld Deserts of Kharak


Homeworld Deserts of Kharak developed by Blackbird Interactive and published by Gearbox Software. An RTS set in the Homeworld universe this time set on the planet of Kharak instead of in space. This allows for different types of gameplay and a new experience overall to the Homeworld universe.While this game revisits the Homeworld franchise and breathes new life into the franchise it doesn’t come with some disappointments.
