InSomnia - A dieselpunk RPGcomment_here

Fallout 2 + Planescape Torment + Dieselpunk = InSomnia! 

I was one of many hardcore Fallout fans that waited eagerly for Fallout Online (Project v13, a Interplay production) to be released. But we all know what happened with that game (don´t we now?). Well, i haven't been that much interested in any other RPG games since then. 

But today we got contacted by the nice folks at Mono Studios. Because they just happen to be working on a really neat dieselpunk RPG game named "InSomnia". And i just watched the Kickstarter video for InSomnia, and i have to say that InSomnia looks really promising.

I also like the fact that InSomnia has been inspired by WW1, WW2, Fallout 2 and Planescape Torment. I mean, that´s one hell of a mix! So i really hope that InSomnia will be able to collect those $70,000 via Kickstarter. Because then we got both InSomnia and Wasteland 2 to look forward to!

Press release:
"SAMARA, Russia – June 25, 2014 – InSomnia—the post-apocalyptic RPG that enthralled gamers with its Art Deco- inspired setting—has returned to Kickstarter with tons of gameplay footage, new reward tiers, and an in-engine tech demo. After only two days, the game has earned $12,700 toward Studio MONO’s goal of $70,000.

InSomnia introduces players to a retro-futuristic space station (“The Ark”) on its 400-year journey in search of a new home. Several centuries earlier, war-torn Noman survivors boarded the Ark to flee their planet and escape the conflict between the Republic of Noma and the SORG Regime. Most of InSomnia takes place inside the gargantuan, half-deserted vessel—which is slowly making its way toward the elusive Evacuation Point. If the Ark fails to reach the Evacuation Point, billions of Nomans will have died in vain.

InSomnia’s real-time combat gameplay is realistic and fast-paced—and mastering it largely depends on understanding how to manage stamina, weight loads, weapons, and armor. For example, player characters will tire without enough stamina—thus lowering combat efficiency.

Likewise, much depends on equipment choices because inventory capacity is realistically limited to a few equipment slots and pockets per character. Each individual ammo pack has its own weight rating, and heavy machine guns are actually heavy! It’s up to the player to choose between inhabiting a slow, hulking warrior with the ability to throw one or two heavy blows— or going for a nimble character who relies on speed in order to come out ahead in combat.

“InSomnia drops players into a dark, damp space station where competing factions battle for supremacy using any weapon or tactic they see fit,” says Anatoliy Guyduk, lead developer at Studio MONO. “We self-funded development and invested more than two years of our lives into InSomnia. Hopefully, what we have achieved so far will prove to potential backers that this is the real deal–and that InSomnia deserves their support on Kickstarter!”

InSomnia is expected to be completed by Q4 2015 and will be released on PC, Mac, and Linux."

Key features:
- Play it your way: Backers will receive both DRM-free and Steam versions of the game.
