    Tags: Olympus 2207

    Olympus 2207 is a Russian fan-made game utilizing the Fallout 2 engine and set in 2207's Silicon Valley, with different factions vying for access to a fortified skyscraper called "Olympus." Today, the English demo for the game has been released, in which you start off as a kid inside the shelter, Fallout 3-style, sharing candy with your first love and doing a couple of fetch quests, and then the game continues 10 years later.

    Olympus 2207, while being more than just a yet another Fallout total conversion mod, is a post-nuclear game set somewhere in the US Silicone Valley. You take the role of one of the survivors of the global atomic war, taking shelter under an immense skyscraper that mysteriously survived the bombardment. Death or glory awaits... or is there no glory to claim?

    The game uses Fallout 2 engine, however tons of visuals (including video, animations and static images) were done from scratch. The game also uses a lot of ambient music, which, in our view, nicely fits into the game theme. In this English demo you will be able to experience all of the above, as well as try out different paths to success.​

    I've even taken three screenshots of the demo for you: Screenshot 1, Screenshot 2, Screenshot 3.

    Want to experience it? Then grab the demo here.

    Didn't crash for me, so you must've run into a critical bug or something.

    Probably.

    Show Spoiler

    Basically:
    1) If I overwrite an older savegame, it crashes.
    2) If I don't save, it crashes when trying to go to bed.
    3) The NPCs don't move after some playing time.
    4) I don't know if it was intended or not, but the dialogues lines for the doctor quest seems to be random.
    Maybe these guys need some beta testers.

    I made my typical F1/2 character, physically weak but intelligent, perceptive and charismatic. I was not sure if any of my skills or stats were factored into dialogues because everything was said in broken English and read pretty retarded anyway. I was upset that the demo ended when it did, I would have liked to see what laid beyond The Purgatory.

    Does this game have an English release planned? I think my love of F1/2 made me like Olympus 2207 more than I should have, but even knowing this I want to play more.

    Last time I was excited about a soviet Fallout-like game, it turned out to be that abortion of a game called "something something Replicants".
    So unless the final game gets awesome feedback on the Codex, not going to bother.

    I like the whole retro Fallout style but the beginning is boring as hell... does the demo actually contain any action aside from beating up the bully? I was slogging around with the water cans when my game crashed so yeah...

    Why is a wrench... suddenly a key?

    The English translation needs a bit more... work.

    The whole growing up as a kid thing isn't really pulling me in...

    That re-worked interface is beautiful. I really do not like that huge resolution they are using though.

    I feel really dumb asking this, but can I leave the first area? Guard asked me to get beer, and my brother said to look at the parking lot...just how do I get there? Every exit is blocked by guards, and I can't find anything else to do...

    There are 3 quests that you have to do:
    1) get father wrench
    2) beat the bully
    3) get medicament for Stella (actually you have to talk with the daughter)

    Then the mother calls you and it sends you to bed. You awake 10 years later ... or with a bloody memory leak popup shitkjfuckdjkhf :decline:

    Well, in Croatian the word for wrench is ključ, and the word for key is also ključ, I guess it's something similar in Russian. Inept translation obviously.

    Yeah. I kind of figured there was something in Russian that is just not translated well in English. Most of the rest of the translation is however not bad.

    Click on the doorway behind the guard asking for booze to go down.
    The other guarded doorway along the same wall goes up to the parking lot.
