The game you are trying to view has ceased development and consequently been archived. If you are a member of this game, can demonstrate that it is being actively developed and will be able to keep this profile up to date with the latest news, images, videos and downloads, please contact us with all details and we will consider its re-activation.

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.

No! It's not dead, Jlea just moved the mod over to the cryengine, and he hasn't released much media outside of a youtube channel of the progress (forgot the name though sadly).

It's just like what happened to Raindrop.

True that. Cryengine is a bitch. Sure source is too, but Cryengine indie stuff never happens and that says something. Also Crysis mods only tend to be a couple of hours long at most, even when they've been worked on for years, which also says something. I predict sad faces when this draws to a close. Hope they prove me wrong.

Mostly it's because indie CryEngine stuff is difficult for new people due to lack of documentation and programming skill; it's taken me around 4 months but I can accomplish EVERYTHING I need now in the CryEngine, unlike source where I had to use hacky work arounds.

You're really shutting this down and starting over on Cryengine? That makes me sad. But I guess it's somewhat understandable.

Well, wish you the best of luck with the future development then.

But before you go on to that, I'd be really grateful if you released what you've done so far on Source. At least as far as assets you're not porting over to the Cryengine version goes.

You got a moddb page set up for that yet (If so, link please)? Or will you just change this one?
