Genre: Steam, Windows, OSX

Publisher: Daybreak Game Company

Developer: Standing Stone Games

Notes: One of the race-classes in this game - Half-Orcs - does a dance which has clearly been taken from the haka. Here’s a video where a D&DO fan shares his learning about haka after encountering it in the game; and it’s actually impressive that he took the time to do this, even if his point of view is still on the “tourist” side of things.

Overall Rating: My knowledge of D&D is pretty limited, but I traditionally have a bad feeling whenever anyone mentions “orcs” andrace”.
