Human Races in After Reset RPG: Part II. Survivors.
Good news, everyone,
We reached the first stretch-goal "Cinematic Intro": atmospheric cinematic 3d intro for proper immersion into the story and for better results on Steam EA. And now we head to the next stretch-goal [$100k] "Programmer, Writer, Project Manager Go Full-Time": with full-time work on the game we'll be able to boost the development process about 2 times faster.
Meanwhile, let's proceed to the Character Creation Process which sketch you could see in our video earlier: Main Menu and Character Creation Overview.
As we already examined all Species of After Reset world, let's what races the Human species consists of. In this news we launch a series of lore publications about human races of the After Reset world. This news is dedicated to Survivors.
Beyond that, if you've just joined to our daily news stream, you can find previous data about other human races at these links:
Human Races in After Reset RPG: Part I. Pastagers.
In the SACPIC game mechanics race is a significant classification system used to categorize species into large and distinct populations or groups by anatomical, cultural, ethnic, genetic, geographical, historical, linguistic, religious, and/or social affiliation.
IMPORTANT NOTES: Due to storyline limitations, you can choose only Pastager race for your character in After Reset RPG's single-player modes. Despite that, you will meet a variety of other races during your adventure in the world of the game.
During the Reset most of humanity of the Past Age died out, but small numbers managed to hang on by turning to the basest of all the human instincts - the instinct of survival. This instinct inevitably leads to the manifestation of other animal qualities of people: anarchy and struggling for the few remaining resources, bloodlust and fighting for power, carnality, cannibalism and depravity. For the handful of those who survived the Reset and were left alone on the dying planet, primitive instincts became the only way to survive. These people began calling themselves the Survivors.
Despite their low average lifespan (35-45 years), by the end of 132 A.R. Survivors are the most widespread human race in the regions of the Great Desert and the State of Eagle. The New Confederacy, the Indian Alliance and Black Sand mostly consist of survivors, as well as the majority of other smaller societies, anarchist groups, gangs and raiders above the ground.

I hope you like what you've just read. There are more lore about the races is coming (Deviants, Stalkers, Toltecs and Touched). And according to our tradition, after the end of that small series we'll put those pretty concept arts in HD available to our backers exclusively.
Thanks for your support and stay tuned!
