Volcanic ash has covered the earth, suffocating life and leaving a dead planet behind. The remaining population has resorted to scavenging and tribalism to stay alive, cannibalism and slavery being a common tale.

The player is part of a dying rural community, slowly running out of essential resources. Your goal is to travel across the plains of Central Asia to search for any glimmer of hope, a sign of a helping hand among the ruins of the old world.

Armed with a tent, an old cosmonauts parka and a rusty pistol this will be a difficult journey...


ABOUT
 


Ivan's Secrets is a survival RPG/Shooter hybrid set in the Central Asia/Russian region. It began life on modDb as a Source mod which grew to a CryEngine game as requirements expanded.

We've been quiet as we had to remake nearly all of our content to a new standard and weren't willing to show anything off. A day/night cycle was very important along with large landscapes - something Source just couldn't do.


GAME PLAY
 

The player follows a guided story and path across the plains, with the game being broken into day and night.

During the day the player scavenges and explores old structures and cave systems for any loot they can find, along with a place to setup camp. When night comes hostile creatures start to roam the plains so it's important to be prepared and have a secure campsite.

Having an optimal load-out and being on the move is important, bogging yourself down with assault rifles will slow you down. Ammunition is limited so choosing to run can be a more efficient option for survival.

The players inventory is fully customizable, with equipment and armour for all parts of the body. Crafting useless junk into useful items is an important skill, with the keen explorer being rewarded for gathering rare parts.

Along the journey you'll encounter various individuals who'll either aid you or stab you in the back for your actions, recognizing these differences will keep you safe. Various scattered towns and communities do exist and the occupants are willing to trade - provided you get their trust.


Expect to see frequent updates from us again. Looking forward to hearing your suggestions!

So after weeks of coding, I finally have the inventory system done! It still needs polish but the basic functionality is there.

Also, the contribute page worked great. We received around 80 ideas.

I really don't like the transition to cryengine. It's a great engine, but it sucks for total conversions. Not that I understand the technical reason why, but I think its well indicated by fact that total conversions never actually come out on cryengine. I really hope you break that trend.

It's just such a damn shame that you get this far on source and just ditch all that progress and incredible engine work now. BTW at least make a new moddb page, so we can follow you.

Ivan's secrets is now a cryengine 3 mod. It looks pretty cool with the cryengine 3 graphics.

Uh, I don't think two months without updates being posted on this page necessarily counts the mod as dead.

I support the change to CryEngine. I was thinking I hadn't heard about this mod in a while and thought I'd see if you said it was dead. Lookin' good bra.

do you have a really ****** computer or something? everybody is complaining about not being able to play this but i think you forget that crysis 2 was optimized enough to run on consoles. if a console from 5 years ago can run crysis 2 more than likely your PC will be fine.
