This project is a single player post-apocalyptic style game played in a game world which is not about nukes and zombies, but about an area which is still a complete – and heavily guarded – mystery. The storyline background has many dramatic elements, which are cleverly presented and explained to the player during the game.
The market has some significant online shooters in post-apocalyptic worlds, but all of them are about nuclear war or zombie outbreak. The single player games are very rare in this kind because they are harder to create, as only a decent, well made story will sell the game. In 2018-2019 Chernobyl became popular once again as some game projects (S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, Chernobylite) were announced, as well as HBO’s famous Chernobyl series.
Our project is not played in Chernobyl, but Kysthym area, where the Mayak power plant is situated. Even though Mayak is a nuclear power plant, just like Chernobyl and it had nuclear accident decades before Chernobyl’s disaster, in our project we present it as a secret cold-war era facility, just like Area 51 in the USA. This background gives us many possibilities, those, which aren’t yet over-used, as the post-nuclear wasteland, or zombie outbreak themed games.
Dezowave is not an AAA studio, it’s a small indie developer group, which means we have no financial background. Our main goal now is to create a demo, which will show our game concept, the UI/GUI, some story related tasks, and the AI in action. We aim for a Kickstarter campaign, where a lot depends on the success. Our group is well known developer of Lost Alpha standalone fan game based on the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. universe which millions played, and even more awaited. We hope our fan base will support us enough in our Kickstarter campaign in order to be able to create a fully fledged game.
We are currently looking for help to finish the demo. If you have experience in Unreal Engine 4’s visual scripting (blueprints), or an experienced modeler (Blender, Maya(K)) please contact us on Facebook or email!
