The indie Soviet Fallout homage ATOM RPG was released a bit over five months ago and to our complete surprise turned out to be one of 2018's best RPGs. The game's development was somewhat rushed towards the end however, which showed up in certain areas that were a bit desolate for their size. One such area was the Dead City, which the ATOM Team promised they would improve in a post-launch update. That promise was fulfilled in yesterday in the form of the Dead City Update, which not only overhauls the city but also adds a ton of additional new features to the game. It's such a big deal they even put together a fancy trailer for it, which I'll post here along with an excerpt from the release announcement:
Finally the moment has come, when our game ATOM RPG is completely finished. In this update we balanced out melee weapons, added to the enemy AI, finalized all of the quests that were left unsolved in the previous update. The main thing, however, is the change of Dead City into a place full of new, unique characters with their own stories and quests. The map is now filled with points of interest and new locations. To see the list of all changes, scroll to the end of this post now.
We would like to use this post mostly to thank you all for the motivation, unique ideas, kind words of praise and endless support. We told this to you multiple times now, yet these words never lost their sincerity and meaning for us: without you, there would be no game, especially of this magnitude. You, our dear players, are the ones who shaped it starting with Kickstarter and the Early Access versions.
This final version of the game is truly your achievement, as much as it is ours.
And the work doesn’t stop here. Our next project will be a stand-alone add-on to the game, code-named Trudograd. It will hopefully hit Steam later this year. Until that time, we will share news of porting Atom to other platforms, translating it to other languages, and of course the development process of the new add-on.
Thank you for being with us, and we really hope that you will continue this journey we got planned out.
Let there be ATOM!
