Got Skillz?

We here at Ten Ton Hammer have covered Kwari in the past. A game that is skill based and involves gambling in a first person shooter style of play. Intent is an understatement when talking about Kwari. You do not bleed red liquid when shot, you bleed coins. Those coins may appear virtual, but they are real. Weapons, scenarios, fighting it out with other players all in the name of making money is the essence of Kwari. In June, Kwari is coming to the U.S. game market.

At GDC 2008 Al King gave us a chance to talk about Kwari. The first person shooter where you can use your skill to earn money. Real money is exchanged in this game during the fast paced combat and wild scenarios. Kwari comes to the U.S. in June and Al was there to talk about the game's future.

Not enough time to reload.

Online game offering 'cash for kills' runs out of money and goes into receivership.
