Deadliest Cold is a Sci-Fi Thriller/Survival/Horror FPS in the alt-history USSR (Sovietic) retro-futuristic setting of the late 70’s/80’s.
Year 2080. The Cold War never ended. USSR bio-experiments brought RSFSR to an apocalypse. Ukrainian Autonomous Soviet-Socialistic Republic became the new capital of USSR. The world had changed forever...
The technological style of eastern Europe (Poland, Czechoslovakia, German Democratic Republic, Ukraine) of the late 1970s and early 1980s is interlinked with the “dirty cyberpunk” and dark anti-utopia. It's time of an early space exploration, when sunny dreams faced with harsh reality. Globe-spanning crisis, extra-terrestial conflict for decommunisation of the Red Mars is in full swing.
The visual style can be described as a “rusty cyberpunk” with post-apocalyptic feeling, inspired by such films as “Blade Runner (1979)”, “Alien (1983)”, such books as “Prisoners of Power” by brothers Strugatsky, “Solaris” by Stanislaw Lem and the space function 1960-1970s with a special Eastern Soviet touch.
Few words about us:
Our studio EyeLidStudio (previously being a movie&CG post-production studio)
is located in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine.
We are an indie-development team, working remotely, being located in Ukraine, Germany, Austria, Russia, and U.S.
We are fans of retro and cyberpunk games, music and culture, and we all have experience in Gamedev, Post-Production, CG and animation. But yet, we all work for our own wish, without having any budget.
Our team members were previously working in such projects as:
S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Clear Sky , METRO 2033, The Witcher II, The Witcher III, Crysis, Warface, War Thunder, Romero's Aftermath, Asteroids: Outpost, Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments, ATOM RPG, InSomnia RPG, Geistkrieg RTS
on different positions - from sound design to asset creation and level design.
We realized one day, that combining our skills and experience, we can create a very special game, in the style we LOVE: Post-Sovietic Cyberpunk/Retrofuturism. About the space that could be if the USSR never collapsed, a dark, apocalyptic antiutopia.
The horror story we are working on is based on some unique memories of our scriptwriting team, memories of sea-travel, POW, and ex-militaries.
We do our best every day, in all our free time, to push our idea into realization. But...
We need your help right now, because even most devoted team can't work for free forever.
You can support us on Patreon, so we could go further and we hope to show our subscribers gameplay demo in spring time.

He does not have any survival skills, moral or physical training that could help him to survive in the in-game events. He doesn't know how to use even a gun...!
But can the shipwrecked recover himself on deadliest cold planet?
Only you get to choose.
The deadly cold of the planet, his own mind and slowly dying body are the hero’s main enemies.
Numerous moral "forks" in the road with often unpredictable end will have a significant impact on hero’s mind and his stress level. Any player’s choices can cause of deadly repercussions for the hero.
The game world is a closed space of a small transport spacecraft. This is polished and exceptionally detailed interactive world.
