Best Way is developing Nuclear Union, reveals 1C, which is an RPG set in an alternate universe where Soviet and US nuclear arms levelled much of the world but the Union survived.
The Soviets went underground and stayed there for 50 years, and now plan to emerge to see what's left of their motherland. The year in the game is 2012, with the nuclear ruckus having kicked off with the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. Our protagonist is a Soviet Officer who had bombed the US.
Specifics about the game aren't divulged at the moment, only the premise of Best Way's RPG. Nuclear Union is due for PC in 2013. Below is the story blurb from the 1C press release:
Every child knows the glorious story that lead to today. When the Capitalist Alliance lead by the Americans refused to allow our defensive screen in Cuba, in 1962, and then attacked us with nuclear weapons. However our Motherland and the Soviet Forces were better prepared than the dogs knew. We leveled them, and half the planet, to show our sickle is sharp and the hammer hits hard indeed!
While the Americans celebrated that they reduced Moscow to rubble, our air defenses kept the city from becoming ash. Almost the entire planet surface was contaminated by their bombs, but it didn’t matter as we had moved underground days before. The Soviet Union did what we have always done, survived. The country underwent a massive evacuation of the most important citizens, leaders and industries to a pre-built network of specifically equipped bunkers.
It’s 50 years later, 2012, and our glorious capital city, Pobedograd (Victory City), is a beacon of hope. It’s time to go outside again brothers and sisters, time to see what has become of our Motherland and her proud cities and towns. Grab a weapon and join us!
