What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We need your support and feedback! Also the game budget is limited and we have to have a break sometime, we can't allow ourselves rapid development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It’s difficult to give an exact date, but most likely, the game will be in early access for about 6 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Much more possibilities. Weather conditions, temperature. We aimed to improve the game mechanics and optimization. We’re going to add new animations, quests and Easter eggs.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“For now we have already done the entire environment and about 30% of game mechanics”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price may be increased in the future, but it won’t be a big increase.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are open to any suggestions from the community and trying to satisfy their interests and desires as much as possible.”

About This Game

The District - action with elements of survival in the open world. You will have to look for weapons, to produce supplies, shelter from the weather and to get used to the conditions of a new life.

The District - action with elements of survival in the open world. You will have to look for weapons, get supplies, shelter from the weather and to get used to the conditions of a new life.

The game takes place in an alternate reality somewhere in the depths of the Russian. There's a crisis in the world, therefore no legitimate governance. The
medical science cannot cope with diffirent difficulties. At the same time a new kind of virus evolves in the Russian. Science cannot explore the virus and decides to
isolate all would-be infected. Because of the abscence of finances, the government comes to ambiguous solution - to send the infected to an empty lands on the outskirts
of civilization under the supervision of physicians and the rest of the population. This supervision comes in the form of a reality show. Patients tries to survive,
having scanty resources under 24/7 surveillance. You are the one trying to survive. Look for the other people, collect resources and food. Beware of wild animals. Survive.

The game is under development. Currently, only 20% of all ideas are realised.
Now we are improving the game in terms of graphics, the map also fill various buildings, loot, Easter eggs and much more.

Bought this game for 10 cents. There is nothing to do. I walked around. Found an axe. Picked it up by randomly clicking buttons till I found which one picks it up. Tried to use the axe, could not use it. Kept running around. Nothing to do. No control scheme available anywhere. Options are basically the unity default graphic options. No sound scheme. Just some static noise meant to remind a snowy sound but has nothing to do with the real snowing sound. No way to exit the game. You can exit only by alt+tab to windows and close the game from outside.
Last update by devs was 4 months ago. No update since. Probably the devs dropped the development of the game and moved on to other cash grab projects.
I spent more time ingame in the slaughtering grounds by digital homicide.
Hope the developers of the district will not sue me like digital homicide did.

Uninstalled and requested refund. the 10 cents I paid for this game are actually too much for it.

By far, this is the biggest game of our generation. It has the best graphics and it runs amazingly well. There are a few problems though. You can't really close the game properly, but who really cares if the game is fantastic, amirite. I can totally see this game being #1 on Steam once it comes out of Early Access. Highly recommend this game if you're looking to slowly torture yourself, or waste 99 cents you might have found on the ground. 9/11 - would recommend.

Everything shown in the trailer is not in the game, you can't pick up items, and the only thing to do is build a prelocated house. Also if you run into the stump at the start of the game it drops your frame rate to 2. Don't waste your time, i've done it for you.

Not worth to spend money or time for/with it in the current state!!!
1 axe to find + 3 windmills - you cannot enter
6 buildings - guard shack included - 3 enterable (one with disgusting wallpapers)
Items you can not pick up.
endless winter athmosphere -> the weather in the clip is not even there and there´s not shotgun or bear either.
The environment is as endless as the game is worth to play -> 0
...I hope i get a refund!

Nothing but a cash grab. Game was abandoned in May 2016. The release date of Aug 23, 2016 is inaccurate. It most likely is another bit of scam from Kotach, the developer. I use the word developer loosely as the entire game is nothing more than a tech demo. And even that is being generous. You can build 1 house and spend the rest of your time running around the countryside looking for something to do.

I have a game from Digital Homicide that is more fun to play and has more effort put into it. If you're familiar with their work, you know how bad this is, then.

One of the worst things I've ever seen to come out of Steam Greenlight. It's an empty map with a few pre-loaded farm type buildings but that's just in one direction. The mouse sensetivity is so high it's painful to look around and the FPS stutter is obvious. This game is broken, nothing works; not even an exit button is in place. Uninstall works just fine but other than that, this game is the purest definition of a lazy persons blank slate. The only reason I gave this game a chance in the first place is because it was only $0.49 and even that wasnt worth it.

This was a scam where the developer bought some unity assets, barely changed anything, and realeased it as his own game.

The District is little more than broken version of Decayed State starter game found in Unity Asset store.

https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/22523

The reason I say broken is cause whatever they did broke the asset that the true developers make available on the Unity Asset Store for download. Just try to walk or jump around and you will see its quite broken. The funny thing is that the one you download if you had a license from the Unity Asset Store actually works and is not broken.

Also author has numerous screenshot and has video using another Unity Asset Store asset, Autumnal Nature Pack, but those cannot be found anywhere in the game. So I'm guessing somewhere he switched which asset he was going to use

https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/3649

Worse instead of working on finishing this game it looks like they are spending all their time flipping more and more assets and not working on the stugg that they are selling.

Some asshat in Russia torrented one of the popular Unity Asset store packs, pushed the build button in Unity and uploaded it to Steam. Don't be a sucker and buy this trash.
