    Hi guys,

    We've recently released our indie sci-fi kinetic novel (the Fall of Gyes) on Steam:
    http://store.steampowered.com/app/440100

    Fall of Gyes strives to maintain a tradition of kinetic, visual novel storytelling that takes place on Earth, 132 years after the "Reset,” a thermonuclear apocalypse that nearly ended human civilization. Around one third of the globe is covered in "Yellow Zones" where the ruins of cities are buried in radioactive dust. In these areas, anarchist survivor groups have taken control. It’s a place where uncontaminated food and drinking water are valued on par with human life.

    Another third of the Earth is in the agony of the "Red Zones;" the epicenters of the deadly anomalies that arose as a result of a nuclear chain reaction in the atmosphere and the morphing of the planet. The majority of life is not capable of surviving in the Red Zones and that makes them a perfect home for mutants. The planet, to all its pre-reset inhabitants, is unrecognizable.

    Developed by Richard Nixon, Jeremy Wilfinger, Adam Burn, Peter Cooper and Angelina Stroganova the game represents the output of cooperation between indie developers and hardcore Hollywood backstage experts.

    For maximum enjoyment, play the game before you sleep in your cozy bed.

    Despite our small team we are a dedicated Indie developer, and with time we’ll be able to add full voice acting for TFoG. So by purchasing our game and up-voting it, you can help to make that upgrade a reality. Beyond that, extra funds we receive from TFoG will be used to make more of the same visual stories with more choices (leading it to be like Telltale's games) and to invest further into our primary "capital ship," "the big RPG of our dreams" - After Reset RPG.

    The Fall of Gyes is a sci-fi visual novel series with stunning cinematic quality and an intriguing story inspired by classic sci-fi horror movies like The Thing, Aliens or Prometheus with claustrophobic atmosphere where no one knows what is happening or who the enemy is until disaster strikes.

    Beyond that, Since the beginning we’ve tried to be transparent and feel that this is one of the most important features for an Indie developer to strive for. I’d like to share our general report about costs and timing for The Fall of Gyes kinetic novel development. I believe that might help to other Indie devs who plan to develop similar titles: http://steamcommunity.com/app/440100/discussions/0/392183857625845909/

    Well, I suppose, the inside data above will help new Indie devs on their way to the dream.

    Thank you for your rooting and support,

    Sincerely,
    Richard.
