    Is the number of skills you can allocate points into in Trudograd reduced? If so, is it because some has been removed, some has been merged, or both?

    Just realized this game is priced way too cheap. Should have been $30.

    Guess what's 20% ready? It's the first draft of the Early Access English translation! Things are going smoothly. Now for some replies.


    We couldn't do that, but we did the next best thing! Most fetch quests are now masking themselves to look like not fetch quests!!!!!!!!!!! One time I forgot what the quest was about and I did half of it before remembering it's a fetch quest!

    I think the main inspiration was a museum exposition of confiscated home made guns from the Soviet era and early 90's, but it's always great when a thing makes one think about БРАТ!

    Thank you! I've notified the guy!


    Thank you! I reported your finds to the translator!
    Oh my, I never heard about the Fritzl case before I googled your comment. How disturbing!
    There will be some interesting melee weapons, including a kyu gunto or shin gunto sword, and possibly a euro sword or a bardiche. We're also making a weapon that will reference Jorg Sprave's "instant Legolas" auto bow, but I dunno whether we'll make it look like a bow or a crossbow. Trudograd will be one step closer to that power fantasy game I always wanted!
    There's a single guy working on all weapon mods and I can't say which ones will survive the chopping block but I also hope for cool lighting effects!
    I don't think it changed in Russian, but I remember having much more time to translate Dead City, than I had when I did the base game. Also, we just got that editor back then. However, since Dead City Scott spellchecked and reworked a lot of the original text. It should all be sweet right now!

    Thanks dude! Though I think Larian deserves the attention it's getting. Very competent guys, gorgeous games!
    No, that would be too hard to do. Transporting all new features to Atom I mean. Trudograd is it's own game. Atom might get a director's cut in 35 years from now or so, and a certain console port or something, but generally speaking, it's done. You can play!

    Trudograd takes place around two years after the end of the first game. Your character got back to Atom base, got a rank of Major, did some stuff off camera, and now they're sending him to Trudograd.

    All skills are there, even the useless ones, because otherwise you would not be able to transfer saves. Though in Trudograd we're doing our best to make all skills useful. Now the ability tree got overhauled somewhat!


    We decided Atom's price should reflect it's budget. Since the budget was around 115 euros for everything from making it to advertisements and we got the rest off Kickstarter, we just couldn't charge much. And trudograd will be shorter than Atom, so again no price increase possible. But maybe one day we'll make something with a huge bloated price tag of 49.99!! It's gonna be some cool futuristic game with nudity and next generation graphics! But I doubt that's gonna happen soon.

    Atomboy Are those weapon mods and skill tree changes etc coming to the base game as well, or just for the expansion?

    Bit confused on that point myself. Judging by the dev's latest post, it doesn't sound like the changes will work retroactively, though that raises another issue. Will transferred characters get to re-spend the skill points they've collected? Without such a safeguard, a veteran character could be stuck with a suboptimal set of abilities compared to a fresh character, or perhaps even an overpowered set of abilities from bypassing the new costs.

    They will only be featured in Trudograd. Like I said to Elex, transporting this new tree into Atom would be too hard to do, since Trudograd is it's own game built from scratch. Atom might get a director's cut with Trudograd's features if everyone will think Trudograd really is superior, and I bet someone will mod Trudograd's skill tree into Atom somehow, but we won't be able to do it right now officially. It is going to ruin a lot of things unless we spend months running the QA team.
    Transferred characters will have the corresponding abilities from the old tree, without any change to their builds due to transfer, but there will be a guy in the next room of the hotel where you start Trudograd in, and he will basically give you a respec potion, for free if I'm not mistaken. He is very hard to miss! This is the way we provide the option to run with your old build or respec before interracting with anything else in the game.

    If there's money to be made and it allows them to continue to develop good games, why not ?
    Why not spread the good vibes to the phone-people ?
    They must be tired to play shit games, surely, playing ATOM will change their lives.

    Might be an intermediate step between porting it to that nintendo handheld console
    a lot of otherwise odd choices have been ported to it lately

    Comrades, should I bother with the dead city update ? I'm thinking I'll just import my characters from atom for Trudograd since I've finished the game a couple of times and DC update doesn't seem to introduce much besides new quests/npcs in dead city.

    I feel like they would make more money porting it to consoles rather then mobile phones. Then again the mobile market is huge.

    Indigo commented on their twitter and streamed the game. He should really make a video review on Atom RPG. Could influence more people to buy this game like Sseth.
