The year's 2034. The world is completely destroyed because of an atomic war. You play the young Sergey, who was brought into Moscow's canalization shortly before the bombs reached the city. His parents ran back to the flat to get some things, but in this moment Moscow was penetrated by several explosions. A few thousand people could flee into the canalization and metro. Sergey only was a little child but survived and grew up in the difficult conditions underground. Years passed and Sergey became a strong and clever man. The small camp where Sergey, his uncle and a few other people lived at the beginning, grew up to a great capitol in the underground and was often visited by people from other camps. At the age of 23, Sergey decided to search for the reasons of the war, but he was stopped. His uncle and others said, that he is too young. But his friend, Alexey, owed him a favor, which Sergey had to call in. He let himself wake up when everyone was asleep, took something to eat, an old leather jacket, his uncle's Makarov and fuel for the motor-handcar that the mechanic just finished and drove off. But something went wrong...

It's interesting to think how long this has been worked on in one way or another. it's gone through 3 computers, more than 2 years, more than 50 different people have helped, and this marks the 3rd time the game levels have been totally re done. why? well it's because I'm slow. FPSC as an engine has an active development community making it so that whenever I get something new working that I'm proud of, it becomes a standard feature, and I have to continuously up the ante.

Just so you can get some perspective on how far we've come-
the first WWC draft:

5 levels
20 minutes of gameplay
5 guns
33 fps cap
55,000 polygon budget

and now, we've moved on to:

9 levels
45 minutes of gameplay
4 guns
60 fps cap
200,000 polygon budget
2 animated cutscenes

From how far we've gone with this, the game has much promise, I promise!
so stay with us, and we'll keep you updated! As I've promised, WWC will never die.

downloading right now! btw i cant tell what shotgun your using in the video. instead of the one in the game now why not replace it with a russian pump action KS-23. fires a larger round (4gauge) and is made in the tula plant i believe. i just think it would fit better into the game.

Hm, I'm just curious, I've tracked this game and it looks very good, but why didn't you involve and of the Metro Universe fiction like the nosalis, the factions and the self made weapons if this great game is clearly influenced by metro and brings much of it's spirit to indie gaming?

Hi 56er,

good question and I have a very simple answer to it. We just want to tell our own story. We are not making a fangame here. :)

By the way, if you saw the job ads here on ModDB/IndieDB, you might saw that we are searching for a great weapon modeler right now to have some awesome weapons for the game.

And hey, thanks for tracking. ;)
