    Hi, all!

    Going to show you an open source game I'm lonely developing on Python and Panda3D.

    Alpha-footage to get an idea:



    In Forward Only you have a small crew and a locomotive. The goal is to find an optimal route through the Silewer country, and visit as many places of interest as you can in order to find a way to survive the Stench, which poisounous clouds are spreading fast across the World.

    You'll have to make tough choices, search for resources, fight with enemies, recruit people, upgrade the locomotive with active weapons and even more. Plus to all of this, your characters will build cohesion with each other in time, becoming stronger together, which is one of the major mechanics.

    The game is now about 80% finished, and I'm looking forward to release a beta version soon. You already can try a playable alpha build and see the game source code in the game repository:

    Comments and questions are welcome, as well subscriptions! There is much more to come!

    Hi, all, how are you!

    A new Forward Only release happened. It can be said that we have a game now, though a bit raw. The scenario was finished, game ending implemented, many other things, and, what is especially major, the balance was singnificanlty changed: the game became smaller, but more active!

    To the Love Day a romantic color mode was added, check it out:
