A second bout of the mysterious "Sand Plague" has broken out in a small town built on the Russian steppe. After bringing the town to its knees in its original bout 5 years previously and having already wiped out several distinctive towns in northern Russia, the death of the town's leader Simon Kain causes the town to enter a period of political and social panic and turmoil while the plague continues to spread.

Three playable characters - Daniil Dankovsky: a Bachelor of Thanatology, Artemy Burakh: a returning member of the town's cult of butchers and Clara: a girl who mysteriously appears in an open grave in the town's cemetery - all appear in the town at the beginning of the plague's outbreak and all serve to try and survive in the town, cure the plague and help restore order to the town independently of each other over a period of 12 in-game days.

Title
Imagine a mix of Survival horror, Tarkovsky, nonsensical or existential drivel, all kinds of messed up stuff on a bleak austere atmosphere. It's kinda like being stuck in one of those unexplainable nightmares before waking up suddenly all covered in sweat and you spend the rest of the day reminiscing about it. Not much of a review I know, let's just say it's an unique experience you have to try for yourself.

    This cleverly inverts the "more than just a game" cliche by barely been a video game.

      Tbf it’s probably a lot closer to traditional tabletop RPGs than most actual video game RPGs are. You can tell it was originally designed as a tabletop game before it switched to a being a video game during development.

      People also underplay just how much FPS combat there is a bit and overplay how difficult it is to get ammo for the memes..

    The internet presence of this game made me think it would me much harder than it really is tbh. The harder thing about this game is not getting bored to death by walking too much, which may be the only bad thing I can honestly say about it. The writing and history are incredibly engaging, some of the best I've ever seen in any medium

      It’s quite an easy game once you know what you’re doing, I think people just struggle on first playthrough because of the way it subverts a lot of game tropes. Like money is a pretty worthless resource in game and the best thing you can buy in shops and the cheap nuts and needles.. I think too many try to buy food from shops which is almost never worth it.

      The common review meme is “I traded my first gun for bread” which is just about one of the dumbest things you can do in the game as the guns make the game way easier and food is easy to come by if you know to break into houses.

      Honestly, after thinking about it, watchin 8+ hours worth of youtube essays about this game probably helped a little

    I loved the Changeling route even if it's unfinished, I hope it gets finished some day (most likely it will not happen sadly)

      Same. Changeling route rules and has some of the most mind-melting moments in the game. Remember like trembling with anticipation of what was coming next everytime I met albino the first time I played her route, was some of the most “wtf is going on” moments in gaming.
