Description

The year is 2034.

The world succumbed to the consequences of a nuclear war. Large cities are gone from the face of the Earth, smaller ones are disconnected from the rest of the planet.

Last survivors spend their days hiding in bunkers and bomb shelters, the biggest one being the Moscow Metro.

Everyone who had managed to reach Metro during the city’s bombing, saved themselves. For them, Metro became the Noah’s Ark after the Flood.

The planet’s surface is contaminated with radioactive debris and populated by mutants. Habitable living conditions exist only underground. Metro stations have turned into self-governed city-states, while tunnels are being dominated by darkness and angst. Sevastopolskaya is one station that, like ancient Sparta, is being protected by its inhabitants who manage to stay alive at an incredible cost.

One day, Sevastopolskaya is cut off from the entire Metro and all its population finds itself at risk of annihilation. To avert the inevitable, the post-war nation needs a real hero.
