In case you weren’t aware, Fallout 4 is coming next week. I’m not sure how you could have missed all the promotional hullabaloo, but there’s more, and this time it’s in emoji form. Surely this signals the beginning of our own apocalypse. It’s all starting to feel a bit much; like we’re heading towards our own wasteland and the only remnants of our past lives will be caps from Fallout beer, molten Fallout controllers, and the mocking grin and empty eyes of Vault Boy staring down from billboards like the eyes of Dr TJ Eckleburg.
Or maybe I’m getting caught up in it all too much. Either way, both iOS and Android users can now download Fallout C.H.A.T. – that stands for Communications Hub and Transmitter – free of charge. At least it’s free.
Fallout CHAT is a new custom keyboard that lets Fallout fans express their excitement for the upcoming release of the fourth game through more than 60 Fallout-themed emojis and GIFs. The emojis available include Pip-Boy with various expressions, a brahmin, Nuka-Cola and, my favourite, irradiated poop. I downloaded it to send the irradiated poop.
