Nobody knows what started the Final War u2014 it was over too fast, fought with the last of the belligerent nationsu2019 nuclear stockpiles, and the ones who pulled the triggers didnu2019t survive. It was the Final War because after that there was really nobody left who wanted to fight; we were all too busy surviving. Half a century of wars using nukes, bioweapons, nanoweapons, and even kinetic-kill weapons, gave us the Empty World: population 100 million and falling fast.
Whou2019s to blame? Depends on who you are, but you could just as easily blame the weapons industry; by the end, virtually every arms dealer in the world was owned by Amalgamated Corporation; while everyone was fighting theyu2019d been buying up what Karl Marx used to call u201cthe means of production,u201d and in the end missiles on both sides proudly wore the AC label.
Hell, in the end AC made just about everything, AC Sportsdrinks, AC Icecream, AC Battlegear, even AC Happytabs. I miss those. AC even gave us our wonderful mutant problem; the u201cvaccineu201d they developed when radiation sickness became as common as seasonal pneumonia from all those dirty battlefields u2014 all the weapons-grade isotopes getting into the water table, or the fish, or the air u2014 reacted with some of the leftover bioweapons and made lots of people go as squirrely as tab-pumped cannibals. You can ignore a neighbor developing neo-elephantitis or novuleprosy, but when he tries to eat you, youu2019ve got to take an interest.
So thatu2019s it, weu2019re done, civilization is taking a breather. In 2089, anyone left alive and unmutated is just focused on staying that way. There are stories of enclaves here and there, where theyu2019re lucky enough to have plenty of food stockpiled and mutants are thin on the ground or thereu2019s lots of ammunition to throw at them. My advice is find one. Or make one. The Earth abides, all this too shall pass away, and if Darwin blesses you then you or your kids will inherit whatu2019s left. For now, itu2019s one day at a time.
Current Features in the Early Access Release
Only a portion of the current map is available to play on. We will expand it as fast as we can.
- Completely freeform basebuilding system - the Miscreated basebuilding system is different from all of the other existing survival games available and it gives you total control to make as complex and pretty of a base as you want. This is not the typical, snap-together Lego style system other games have.
- Over 100 different parts are currently available for your base, with more coming soon.
- Several different categories (with many subcategories and types) of parts available - wood, sand, tires, powered. Metal to be added in a future patch.
- Anyone can interact with your base - repair parts, turn lights on/off, open/close unlocked doors, turn generators on/off. Non-clan members cannot alter the structure of your base - add/remove parts, attach/detach parts to power.
- Find crafting guides to learn more advanced basebuilding recipes. You can also find someone that knows a part's recipe you don't and politely ask them to make the part for you.
- Join a clan to have fellow clan members help you build your base.
- Basebuilding restrictions - bases cannot be placed in towns or some other key areas to prevent griefing in those areas. Other players also cannot build bases very close to your base.
- Pack up and move undamaged parts - if damaged, you can repair them first, or you can dismantle damaged parts to get one of the crafting materials back.
- Damaged states for parts - at each 25% damage the color of a damaged part will darken more.
- Clans are persistent (remembered between server restarts and logging in/out) and per server.
- Clans can be created, disbanded, and you can invite other players to your clan by targeting them and using the mouse wheel option.
- Invited players can decline an invite or accept it.
- Clan owner can promote other clan members to be a clan captain, so they can invite new, or remove existing, clan members.
- For this release, all clan members can alter the structure of any clan owned bases. In a future release there will be more specific permission controls added.
