Be prepared to contend with the struggles between different social classes and survive the harshness of the Siberian frost in Klabater and Arclight Creations’ newly announced title, Help Will Come Tomorrow.
Help Will Come Tomorrow is set in 1917 pre-Bolschevik Imperial Russia, during the October Revolution and, specifically, in the uninhabitable wilderness of Siberia. It is here where a group of passengers have survived the mysterious catastrophe of a Trans-Siberian railway train and now they must endure the harsh ice-clad climate until someone arrives to rescue them. Facing many dangers, their own weaknesses and even their own prejudices towards each other, passengers from three different social classes will have to unite and make decisions that may possibly go against everything they believe in. They will be constantly put to the test in a bid to survive and their decisions will come at a cost, but exactly what cost is up to the player.
The basic mechanics will focus on the survival of the nine characters, such as meeting their needs, gathering resources, expanding the camp, taking care of security, and exploring the surroundings. It won’t take long for players to figure out that in order to win, they’ll need to learn the personalities of the characters and analyse relations between them, mitigating any conflicts and taking care of morale. Selfish acts can be chosen, but ultimately, cooperation is crucial for survival and keeping a clear conscience.
“In Klabater we are focusing more and more on developing and publishing story-driven games regardless of the genre. Be it a survival game or management sim, we want it to contain a compelling and touching story. We strongly believe story is what matters the most. Help Will Come Tomorrow is a beautiful addition to that philosophy. We think of this game as a “spiritual successor” to We. The Revolution, our latest successful game.” – Said Michal Gembicki, CEO at Klabater – “Another unique feature we try to feature in our games is a real historical background. It reflects our personal historical interests in Klabater – we love history and we want use it as a tool to tell immersive stories about the human condition. That was the case of We. The Revolution as well as with Help Will Come Tomorrow. This time we move to the Siberian wilderness in Russia, just before the Great October Revolution started.”
