A brief introduction of our mod called "Metropolis"

Character concept

The world has been changed by nuclear war. The cities have been ruined and poisoned by radiation. The human kind are not welcome on the Earth's surface anymore... This is a story about the survivors, who are living in the deepest subway in the world, St. Petersburg, Russia. Welcome to the underground city named Metropolis!

Hello there!

Were would like to make a brief introduction of our mod called "Metropolis". Our team is working on this project since early 2008. We've been inspired by the book "Metro 2033" written by famous Russian writer Dmitriy Glukhovskiy.

Unfortunately, we made a mistake by starting the development of mod for Source engine. We think there is no technical possibility to make all what we've planned. In our opinion, the Source SDK is very uncomfortable to work with, the tools are seems very outdated and slow. In the 2009 we decided to switch to Unreal 3 engine, which has everything what we need in terms of technology and tools.

Currently we are working on the making of environment and prototyping the gameplay. More information and media coming soon! Thanks for your attention!

Stay tuned!

Ever heard of Metro 2033? This is EXACTLY the same.
And there's a video game adaption of it being made.

The game Metro 2033 is based on the book about Moscow subway. We are using the book only for inspiration and not copying the story. Our mod about subway in St. Petersburg - different place, different characters and different story. ;)

And there is no reason you can't be inspired by the same source material. :) The concept art for this looks fantastic. Looking forward to what else you guys have in store!

Seeing how much you guys made in Paranoia I bet you want to move from UT3 to UDK. In any way I bet this mod is going to rock! Best of luck to you guys.

Paranoia was great, and this looks like it will be in the same vein.
