Homefront imagines a Korean invasion of Colorado, we talk with creative director David Votypka about how it came to be

North and South Korea have reunited, the U.S. economy breaks down and erupts in civil war and, suddenly, America is occupied by Korean forces from across Asia. Sounds far-fetched, sure, but that's the premise of Homefront, a new game from Kaos Studies that seeks to imagine the world of occupied America. Here's the kicker, though: The game takes place primarily in Montrose, Colorado. Since we don't often find ourselves at the root of an underground resistance, we decided to catch up with the game's creative director, David Votypka, to chat about how this all came to be.
