    *The Atomboy nods his head, puts hands in the pockets of his rag-suit, takes them out again, spits on the ground, looks at his muddy shoes with contempt and gives out a little sigh*
    Long time no see, TOBAPU|_|_|,! "Terrible" is such an ugly word. How about "exotic" or "ethnic"? Our two writers take great inspiration from the dry, bleak, hateful, highly stylized prose of such Russian classics as Shalamov, Platonov and early Sorokin (in the same way as our artist gets his inspiration from the works of Lobanov) and we stand by it! As for the English translation, we're totally ready to admit that it really looks kind of googly, even though I never use the thing. That's why we have a native English gentleman sorting through it and making it better as we speak! Kickstarter is sure a great way to find a helping hand! A patch is on it's way. As for the resume, it's more of a portfolio. It's scattered among the image boards, mostly... There was also that failed comedy club routine. And some games.

    Well, I'm almost him! I'm some guy he hired! And I'm here to tell you he says hello ;)
    As for JA2, we're mostly slavs here in the Atom Team. When we don't make our Fallouts, we make our Jagged Alliance Twos! Since I was born in the late 80's, JA2 was the only father figure I ever had. But even the younger guys on the team enjoyed the crap out of it. Not the best thing ever branded with Sir-Tech's logo in my opinion (I like Wizardry 6 & 7 more), but still better than most.

    Thank you so much, man! You know, I always cringed a lot when other kickstarter-bound teams posted something along the lines of "Thank you for making history with us! Welcome to our huge, happy gaming family!". But lol, may god smite me where I sit if I'm lying - when someone tells me he put his trust into our project - I honestly feel that way. Like we're all a community, and we're making history together. Bless you, man! It means so much!

    Just don't abuse that trust and blow the money on hookers *cough* Star Citizen *cough*

    Might even pledge myself, even though I officially swore off Kickstarter.

    We sure did! Huge mods like that always inspired the crap out of most of us, to be honest. As for the formula... Well, first thing I'd add to Fallout would be a better battle system. SPECIAL all the way, but at least some type of cover or JA2-esque run-walk-sneak-crouch pose changing and roof climbing. That's actually planned for our battle system as a stretch-goal. Can't say I answered for all of the team, though. The other thing for me would be more places like Shady Sands, less places like the NCR. There's just something about small communities surviving in the desert, that I cannot find in huge locations with democracy and civilization almost rebuilt. Also, more places like Modoc. Fallout 1 trumps Fallout 2 IMO, but I just love me some Modoc. The mystery farm, the forced marriage, the ghoul-finding, the sewer shenanigans. Oh the memories.

    First one was about me begging the Codex for Greenlight. This time we're making it all about Kickstarter! I decided the theme change was just asking for a crisp new thread!

    Not much, really. That was more of a joke, actually. All they ever actually did to us was we've been sending them our press-releases for months now... and they didn't even reply once! Our very own Navigator Igrovogo Mira (sort of a Russian IGN) gave us a shoutout! But not these guys! No sir!

    Cheeky! :D

    True, but...

    ...sadly, also true.

    There's a remastering of the translation in the works, though!

    We can respect that! Just remember us in 2018! :D

    ...And since I can't find a way to edit my previous post.... Thank you so much for backing us, man! We will deliver, you know. We really will! It really means a lot.

    Oh... oh no... No... We're not MGTOW yet, but we plan to keep our celibacy until the work is finally done. Getting this far was way too hard to just crap all over it instead of finally achieving completion. No woman of the Night will make us halt our stride! Not even Mia Khalifa* herself.
    And as for the possible backing, we appreciate the mere thought of it a ton, goes without saying. Try our stuff out! And who knows!

    *We don't actually like Mia Khalifa.

    Look..

    I get the whole "hey dudebros, I know the Golden Boy meme, I'm one of you guys. US GUYS, RIGHT?!?! Let's show those Bethestards!! Let's fund this thing!!" routine.

    And I get the whole "look I'M SUCH A WRITER, i can *DESCRIBE MY ACTIONS* in a post" routine, which is cringy, honestly, but ok.

    But I asked for a portfolio. Surely your guys should've posted some novellas somewhere, maybe fanfic, whatever. So don't play a shy girl with me. You want my money? Show me your titties as a promise of what's to come, that's what I want to see. All I see now is nothing I'd be interested in. And nobody should be interested in it. Your demo was horrible.

    You're Russian, right? :) Я контент-модератор на игровом портале ГоХа.ру, мы про ваc тоже новость запилили.

    1200 просмотров пока. Если есть время и желание, можно зарегистрироваться у нас и немножко попиарить игру: ответить на вопросы и комменты про проект. Не знаю, приведёт ли вам это новых бэкеров, но попробовать стоит, имхо.

    И на РПГ Нюк про вас тоже есть. Продуктивным будет потусить и там в комментариях, т.к. вам важна любая огласка.

    Ещё, я попросил ребят из Poetic Studio, с которыми у меня тёплые отношения, сделать shout out на ваш проект в следующем апдейте их игры, Sacred Fire. Они совсем недавно на КС деньги собрали. Надеюсь, не откажут :)

    Some criticism of the pitch video:

    You need to talk about features of the game. You say that it's inspired by Fallout, and you give a run-down of the development history, but you don't really go into any more detail. How exactly is it inspired by Fallout? What's similar, and what's different? Are there any areas where you're trying to improve upon Fallout? Etc.

    Hey everyone! It's me again! Let's get on with the replies!

    That actually sounds like a great idea. Too bad it's not up to me to make it happen! Sharing that sweet, sweet main page with Obsidian and news about Monte Cook! The man, the genius. Oh boy!

    My man, everyone who played the demo would know that I was simply mocking the bizarre way most of our descriptions currently look in the English version, not showing off my rad writing skills! And how dare you try and take my dudebro privileges from me! Why the first game I ever prototyped back in like 2015 was a 2D 1st person tile-based RPG called "Golden Child Chronicles: Infant Regalia". Cleve's honesty and hard work are an inspiration, not a cheap way to pass the Codex' meme-test. As for the novellas, I'm gonna google around. Seeing how productive our writers are, I'm at least gonna send you a Shrek x Shadow fanfic at the end of the day. Come on. Love us. You want to love us. Dudebro... ;)
