Game Story:

The year was 2016. A world was in an extremely unstable situation. In Russia, the president plundered and ruined the country and the people were about to start a revolution. After the president betrayed his country, he fled to his bunker in Novaya Zemlya. Three hours later USA Forces crossed the border of Russia, and started the Third World War. Next year something strange happens in USA, a very big disaster. The war was finished, because USA Forces weren't able to continue it, but without a central ruling government, Russia was split into many smaller countries.

Now, in 2017, our world is in ruins.
The capital of Russia - Moscow was destroyed with many rockets and weapons. Miraculously, here in Moscow, many people survived and still live in their flats. Most of them established/joined local gang clans, creating a very unstable situation. The railroad in the northern region is still working, even though many regions of Moscow lie in absolute ruins.

Mihail Antonov, our main character of the game, lives near this railroad in his old flat in a partly abandoned building. From Moscow, every day, he rides on the train to his workplace, in Dolgoprudny, a small town, not even slightly damaged by the war. Many people from Moscow migrated there after the war. Gang clans control Dolgoprudny and they do not like visitors from other towns. Mihail works in a research lab, specializing in weather forecasting.

On this sunny March Monday, the entire day had gone horribly wrong for our hero. When he finally comes to Dolgoprudniy, he founds that many people are escaping from the town. Also, his bus In Dolgoprudniy cannot drive him to his lab. Mihail decides to walk to research lab by himself. When he reaches it, he knows a very bad news from his friend, but he was late... Next happens what he didn't suspect and it finally separated his life to "before" and "after"! He does not suspect what else will happen today, and what the HELL he must survive the next 14 hours!

The story mentioned on moddb is only a half of the full story of game. I'll upload it, when the half of game will be ready!

While I encourage the creation of a unique engine (and best hopes you succeed in that endeavor)... the story sounds like it's in need for a little bit of a rewrite or edit. That's just my suggestion.

Also -- don't be discouraged by lower review numbers, as there will be people who will always do this, no matter what (there were idiots who rated Dragon Age II lower 5/10 just because they couldn't accept a different experience). Just keep going forward, and focus on the constructive critics rather than those who just want to complain.

The game isn't even near complete so you don't really need to worry about the story...

Yes, a week ago we decided to make a serious changes in story. I want to have my ideas in game, but I'm not a real story writer, and we need somebody who will work on a story in our SGL TEAM.

I guess I will just stay with basic testing! :)

@Everybody: People before reviewing this remember its just a early DEMO. I believe that the main reason of it is to find out some problems, hints to do with it and so forth.

Don't vote on it harshly, doing that is like voting on who has the sexiest brain.
Wait it out, help him figure what is needed/wanted.
