Hello, let's start with that question.Many compare your game «Bad Day» with «STALKER»,because they are similar in appearance.You answer?
Konstantine Lisetskiy (Farom Studio):
Hello. No doubt there are similarities as well as setting of the game is the CIS. We are pleased when people equate us to the hit game.So, we do it right, once causes associations.
But I assure you, no texture, no model, no animation is not taken from a stalker, all done "with our own hands."
John Singer (iDow.ru): As for the game world «Bad Day», it will be completely open, or all frames within a video game, the player will be able to kick the can or down the wall?
Konstantine Lisetskiy (Farom Studio): In fact, it is difficult to make Sandbox to mobile platforms. We initially aimed to ourselfs to do a project, which forces the new team. Regarding kick can, it is still limited in hardware, as opposed to a PC or a console, mobile device calculates a much smaller number of polygons.Therefore, if you allow the player to kick the cans, you have to, say, refuse bots, since the device can not simply count all, and just hang.
John Singer (iDow.ru): Tell the story of the game , where it all begins, and for whom we have to play?

The inventory is always placed only 2 kinds of weapons, not counting the constant knife.
So what are the different types, guns, automatic rifles, light machine guns (like the PKK), also plan to introduce a hand grenade launchers - a prototype Bulldog.
Sniper rifles are also planned, but they will be of a level, the player will not be able to carry behind him a sniper rifle, just for this will be special rates on hold sniper positions.Still planning a couple of stationary machine guns on trucks - Before levels on a stationary machine gun, to the player will be a choice, a gyroscope or a joystick.And of course the technology, but not larger BMP. In technology, the player will need to switch between the driver's seat and firing positions, or else to give the command to his companion (NPC), to control the firing position.
