What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to make a good product and therefore we have to send our game to Early Access in order to test the game mechanics (craft system, combat system and its balance, content generation system and others). It is very important for our development team that people who liked our project will have an ability to contribute to it and tell us about all the bugs and negative points that they found at earlier stages of development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The product will be in Early Access stage until all mechanics are finally be approved by the community. It is in our interests that this will happen as soon as possible. We’re planning to release the full version of “Failed State” in the fall 2019, however, this date may be changed due to our decision to extend the content in the game significantly.”

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

“In the full version of the game, there will be available a full storyline, a fully functioning game content generation system (probably, we're currently really actively working on this one), more languages and probably new game modes.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of Early Access version includes several episodes from the storyline where core gameplay mechanics such as crafting, exploring, decision-making and combat systems are introduced to players. All features from 'About This' section are implemented in the current state and we are continuously working on their further improvement.

Note that the first original release of Early Access version of the game includes only several playable levels and lacks the biggest part of the intended content. We plan to release big updates periodically. That updates will include new levels, characters, items, and will extend gameplay possibilities.

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

“During Early Access, product price will not change. After leaving out the Early Access program, the amount of content in the game will be significantly increased, so the price of our game will be increased too.”

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

“We are already actively communicating with players in social networks and in discussions of the game on Steam. We're focusing on direct interaction with our fans and players for collecting feedback about new features or content. Actually, our Failed State project wouldn't be that what it is nowadays without big community support, that always judges us strictly and helps to make the project better.

A lot of feedback so far comes from our social networks (VK (Russian Only): https://vk.com/redspinnerstudio and Twitter: https://twitter.com/Red_Spinner).”

What inspired the authors of the game?

Robotics in the Soviet years was not just an obsession of engineers and designers or a product of a sick fantasy of science fiction, but one of the vectors to develop. Who except robots had to support socialism in the bright future?

It is a pity, but most of really interesting mechanisms were created for industrial purposes, but there were also futuristic robots that synthesized diamonds or led tours.

One of that iron "guides" was the basis of robot presented on this source. The photo from 1969 shows a robot guide of the Polytechnic Museum of Moscow.

A little about the plot of our game. Rose's diary entries

Rose's diary entries.

"Dad used to say I was born with God's help, that I was a gift. No, he did not believe in God, he was an ordinary Soviet engineer. But he thought I was special. As a child, I did not understand why. Mom said the birth went well, we were released quickly. Then no one was there for a long time, this was the time. But dad always insisted on my exclusivity.



Yes. He was right, he knew more than anyone. In general, all the children of that time were exceptional, simply because they were born. We even managed to count, at one time tried to make a single center of education. Just like the Nation's Hope. Nonsense. But the initiative has faded in the face of many other problems. Moreover, the UN has ceased to be a nominal entity, and all of humanity began to fraternize with the hope of escape.



Honestly, the children were forgotten with time, fertility was falling, but not rapidly. They cared more about the Earth itself, even though it tried to kill us. At that time, half of Japan was in ruins, Peru, Sudan, Egypt almost completely turned into lifeless deserts, America often was visited by hurricanes, and part of the ever-sleeping volcanoes woke up. If you look from the outside, nothing special, but with such a density of natural disasters and natural anomalies was unknown for us."
