Game Story:

Our world is in ruins.
The capital of Russia - Moscow was destroyed with many rockets and weapons. Miraculously, here in Moscow, many people survived and still
live in their flats. Most of them established/joined local gang clans, creating a very unstable situation. The railroad in the northern
region is still working, even though many regions of Moscow lie in absolute ruins.

Mihail Antonov, our main character of the game, lives near this railroad in his old flat in a partly abandoned building. From Moscow,
every day, he rides on the train to his workplace, in Dolgoprudny, a small town, not damaged by the war. Many people from Moscow migrated
there after this war. Gang clans control Dolgoprudny and they do not like visitors from other towns. Mihail works in a research lab,
specializing in weather forecasting.

On this sunny March Monday, the entire day had gone horribly wrong for our hero. When he finally comes to Dolgoprudniy, he founds that
many people escaped from the town. Also, his bus In Dolgoprudniy cannot drive him to his lab. Mihail decides to walk to research lab by
himself. He reaches it. Next happens what he didn't suspect and it finally separated his life to "before" and "after"! He does not suspect
what else will happen today, and what the hell he must survive the next hours!

Dear friends,

The game will be released as promised at 27th of October.

Soon.

There you can look on a countdown of it:

TLW Countdown

The game will be released in two parts. This one is the beginning, where you will see the introduction to "The Long Way" game world.

I will release the game there, on Indie and ModDB, and on some mirrors and also, on a game website.

There are many ideas about the future of The Long Way, unfortunately I came up with difficulties with the increasing level of game quality, and it's hard to support my own game engine. The future may be in some type of a framework-wrapper for Unity or UE.

Please leave comments if you have some questions about the game.

Fyodor.

Hi,
for quit a few years i am tracking this game now and it amazes me that suddenly there is a beta to be released quit soon!!!
I haven't heart from you for quit some time, and back then you were struggeling with quit a few issues like pathfinding etc. So it really amazes me to hear you have come so far.
I used the link to request for the beta but that only did redirect me to the countdown page. No problem, i can wait till release date.
Great news to see this have become so far!!

You can't even imagine the progress of game development.
The game will come out in 2017-2018.
That's all for now. Of course, it's alive.

Doesn't work on my machine. Game crashes immediately following New Game selection. Some ogre exception pops up. Tried several display modes, windowed/fullscreen, enabled/disabled antialiasing mods etc...

Looking great! The engine looks awesome for being created by yourself. Plot sounds a bit like Half-Life though XD

While I encourage the creation of a unique engine (and best hopes you succeed in that endeavor)... the story sounds like it's in need for a little bit of a rewrite or edit. That's just my suggestion.

Also -- don't be discouraged by lower review numbers, as there will be people who will always do this, no matter what (there were idiots who rated Dragon Age II lower 5/10 just because they couldn't accept a different experience). Just keep going forward, and focus on the constructive critics rather than those who just want to complain.

The game isn't even near complete so you don't really need to worry about the story...

Yes, a week ago we decided to make a serious changes in story. I want to have my ideas in game, but I'm not a real story writer, and we need somebody who will work on a story in our SGL TEAM.

If I knew how to write great stories... I would help out!
I guess I will just stay with basic testing! :)
