What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Naturally, we want to have the opportunity to maintain a constant feedback between the community and the developers ourselves. In this fashion, we'll be able to see which gameplay mechanics do indeed work, which don't and which of the areas in the whole concept both visually and mechanics-wise need improvement. This will benefit not only the end-user but us developers as well since we'll be able to economize our focus and balance our development cycle accordingly.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to let the game stay in Early Access for approximately around 6 months. It can be shorter but not necessarily longer. However, if the community-developer interaction leads to "more fruitful" results, we'll discuss it with our publisher first, and then with the community to extend the early access period.”

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

“The full version will be more of "full" experience both story and game-mechanics wise. Since this game relies on 2d side-scrolling action, there are myriad number of "cool actions and gimmicks" we can provide. However, player controller input and responses are very very crucial in this genre. Therefore, even though we have many other features ready to be implemented, we don't want to include them in the final game before asking the honest, brutal feedback of the community.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Current state of Early Access has fully playable four chapters, fully responsive game-play mechanics and fully combat-able A.I.
In the same manner many of the story elements are in place, where you can interact with characters and receive quests and rewards. Therefore in this current state of EA, the players can experience a nice portion of the story and give us the developers feedback about the story elements as well.”

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

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

“We'll be, literally, active on steam forums 24/7. And we plan to release updates every week, regularly. Even though our earlier games weren't in EA, we still pushed many updates after releasing the game and we still continue to monitor the discussion forums and we still provide one-one-one feedback for our player base when they need technical help.

Therefore, one can be sure that we'll keep a very active "community interaction" process during EA.”

About This Game

POST-WAR DREAMS is a 2.5-D Action/Rpg set in the wasteland of USA, plagued with constant war. Following the collapse of the economy, government, and society, you must brave heavily armed militia, lawless gangs, dangerous streets, desolate buildings and underground bunkers on you quest to escape the city alive. The road to a new life is paved with danger, hope and constant reminders of everything that’s been lost.

You will engage in combating the gangs and militia in order to survive and may choose to help other survivors who are full of their own personal misery, hopes and dreams, where everyone is trying to see the next sunrise in this chaotic wasteland.

SUMMARY
The United States has broken, and violence fills the streets. Freedom and patriotism have disintegrated, replaced with war and famine, and life is only a reminder of what’s been lost. If Garrett Mitchell hopes to survive this new world, he’ll have to fight his way through dangerous militia soldiers and members of the ruthless gang The Remnants while deciding whether or not to help his fellow survivors.

Following years of mounting tensions within the United States, civil unrest caused Washington DC to shut its doors and borders to the rest of the world six short months ago. As lawlessness took over the Midwest, spreading from coast-to-coast, the financial system crashed and soon DC and the surrounding cities became a fortress for the privileged with the rest of the country left to fend for itself.

Now, the streets run red with the blood of innocents as militia, gangs and rogue soldiers use lethal means to secure food, water and supplies that will allow their societies to keep going.

For those civilians caught in the middle, each day is a fight for survival. As supplies dry up, these neutrals flee from the cities in hopes of starting over somewhere new. Holding onto a shred of hope, all the civilians have left are the clothes on their back and their post-war dreams.

Players are introduced to Garrett, their mysterious vehicle through the wastelands of the United States. In the months since society’s collapse Garrett has done all he can to survive, dodging soldiers, gangs and other civilians, but with food, water and other survival resources scarce, he must find his way out of the city if he wants to live another day.

Just as Garrett believes he can exit the city scot-free he’s waylaid by enemies and rescued by Kara, a former EMT (emergency medical technician), who is trying to lead her own group outside the city limits to probable safety. Her group is made up friends, neighbors, co-workers as well as strangers she’s encountered along the way.

While Kara has medical training and cunning, which have allowed she and her group to survive the weeks since the war began, they lack combat skills and Garrett is a logical choice to help ensure everyone’s survival.

The player may choose to help Kara and her friends or go it alone, with the impacts of the decision coming into view as the first few levels progress.

Whatever the course, the player will ultimately end up a part of Kara’s caravan whether reluctantly or by choice. While Garrett’s fellow travelers will be excited to learn more about their new compatriot, the player may choose to not be as friendly or forthcoming.

As the levels continue on and Garrett is exposed to different backstories, his successes or failures may also lead to the deaths of those he finds himself growing closer to.
