Post-apocalypse regularly attracts the attention of game developers. In recent years, creators of action games and MMOs have turned particularly often to this genre. The project V.O.D.K.A. Open World Survival Shooter is no exception. Key information about the game, its advantages and disadvantages.
V.O.D.K.A. Open World Survival Shooter is a mixture of several classic genres. First of all, the game is an FPS, a survival horror and survival sim, the action of which unfolds in a post-apocalyptic world. The development and production of the project is engaged in a young independent company Sweet Games. The studio has been existing for about three years, but has already managed to release more than ten games. Among them are unusual shooters like Bigfield 2042 and Sexy Sniper.
The developers position V.O.D.K.A. as a survival shooter. Although it is actually a symbiosis of first-person action, horror, RPG and adventure sandbox in an open world. The creators were inspired by such hits as Dayz and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.. But still their creation is significantly inferior to known competitors. Still Sweet Games is a small independent studio, unable to create high-budget AAA projects in a short time.
A Dangerous Adventure
The game V.O.D.K.A. Open World Survival Shooter is set in the near future in a fictional country in Eastern Europe. After massive radiation contamination the state has become a closed zone populated by few locals, military and bloodthirsty mutants. The key task of the protagonist becomes survival. Along the way he will explore vast locations and perform tasks of varying complexity.
At the first stage, the player needs to cope with the main difficulties. He is engaged in:
- Searching for water and provisions
- Collecting weapons and ammunition
- Exploring the world
Almost all of the places in which the protagonist will find himself contaminated with radiation. Some parts of the zone are populated by mutants, which are sure to try to attack the protagonist. But even more dangerous are the human survivors. They are armed and well equipped. And most of them will definitely want to get their hands on your stuff.
To survive the initial stage, the character will need to find a minimum level of uniforms and weapons with ammo. Also need to constantly monitor the level of thirst and hunger. Anomalies caused by radiation must be avoided. When the character is armed enough, you can begin to explore the huge location. But when encountering mutants or the military, you must act very carefully.
Advantages and disadvantages
The project attracts attention by many things. Its advantages are:
- An interesting nuclear post-apocalypse setting
- A huge world available for exploration
- A large selection of weapons and equipment
Despite a good theme idea, the game has a lot of shortcomings. The most obvious ones are:
- Poor graphics
- Predictable enemy AI
- Lack of dynamics during the most part of the game time
The creators promise to fix some shortcomings, if their creation becomes popular enough. It is important to understand that it is a modest independent game, not AAA shooter with an impressive budget and huge resources.
V.O.D.K.A. Open World Survival Shooter is sure to please fans of shooters in a post-apocalyptic setting. The process of finding food and equipment, exploring the world and battling enemies is well done. However, the overall impression is spoiled by the weak visuals, the lack of a coherent story and the small number of available quests.
