What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are going into Early Access mostly because we would like to get more feedback from players from the early stages and continue to make an interesting game. This will allow us to communicate more closely with the community of players and discuss new content, receiving various feedback. For example, after receiving a certain amount of feedback, we changed the initial map in the game, as we think, for the better.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We think it can take a year. It is difficult to estimate a specific time, since we adhere to the idea that the game should go out of Early Access only with proper quality, and besides, we have a vision of how we would like to have it in the finished form. The idea is that by the time of release, the game should be gradually worked on with equal size updates”

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

“The final version is planned to have:
- 5 heroes with several branches of quest lines in the game;
- more kinds of references to films and games and cartoons of the past and present;
- by the end of the release, we want to use all the developments on the map, expanding the one that is now;
- more dungeons;
- new types of weapons;
- we want to add an arena with a “last battle” mode and waves of enemies;
- Ideally, I would like to have multiplayer when leaving early access.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“At the moment, only the main character is available, Marvin, his abilities are not fully revealed. There are two thirds of the planned map and several options for the ending of the game, which are currently cut off. There are melee and ranged weapons, a system of leveling with the help of pills, hand-to-hand combat and mini-combos, drivable cars and open spaces for the driving. And also references to films, games and cartoons.”

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

“Most likely the price of the game will be increased upon leaving Early Access. By doing this we also thank those users who supported us from the very beginning and communicated more closely with us during development.
In Early Access, the game will be updated frequently and there may be major game balance changes, some mechanics, or map changes.”

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

“We want to communicate with our community in discord, as well as hold events with rewards, including those affecting content. We are always open to ideas from the community, we will consider wishes and suggestions, and we will try to introduce the most interesting ones into the game if possible.”

Longread Lore



In the beginning of the Vietnam War, Marvin Todds' squad was assigned a special mission to escort a civilian to the alleged UFO crash site. The civilian being a government bioengineer by the name Emmerich von Monsardo.

But as soon as they arrived at the destination, a bright sphere of expanding light blinded everyone.

When Marvin regained his consciousness, the squad, along with the civilian, was on their way to the base. No one could remember what happened at the facility. The incident was quickly hushed up.

However, in time each of the squad members discovered a supernatural ability - strength, speed or endurance would reach a new level. They could jump over rivers, run faster than cars and break down trees with their bare hands with little effort.

15 years later

Retired Colonel Marvin Todds, spent his quiet evenings in the backyard of his cozy house, sitting in an armchair, chaotically switching TV channels. The growing feeling that something was wrong had not left him for the last few years. Deciding to think about it more, he went to shoot bottles.

Marvin had hardly put the pistol in the holster, when he heard the rumble of a falling plane diving straight towards him onto his yard.
"What the hell is going on here ?!" - the old man had just the time to say, as right in front of him out of nowhere materialised the first monster. The same kind of monster from trashy films that helped Marvin to drown out flashbacks before bedtime.

Only this time it was not a dream - this was the world of The Wicked Days...
