Lore: Post-Apocalyptic Myths Busted
MYTH #1: NUCLEAR WINTER

Myth: Setting off a large number of nuclear warheads leads to huge clouds of smoke, soot and ash rising into the sky. These thick, black clouds envelop the Earth in darkness. The temperature falls sharply. With complete blackness, low temperatures and falling radioactive residue, all flora and fauna will die, everything will freeze and be covered with dozens of meters of ice and snow. And only the smartest criminals will be able to claw their way out of the bomb shelters and Metro stations to hunt for mutants.

Reality: The Nuclear Winter model was developed and became part of popular imagination during the Cold War. In modern times it has become unlikely. However, the "Sagan-Moiseev" model didn't take into account factors such as the release of greenhouse gasses, heat loss from the earth's surface, the climate's ability to self regulate, and also the fact that fires will burn themselves out. Modern climatologists allow that Nuclear Winter is theoretically possible, but it could not be a consequence even of a massive conflict between Russia and the USA. What would be needed is regular (over many years) blasts in coal mines and other geologically defined places designed for this purpose and a nuclear arsenal over ten times larger than those of all nuclear nations in total.

MYTH #2: THE AVAILABILITY OF COMBUSTIBLES

Myth: Like any good character in a casual game or Hollywood film, after having lived through the apocalypse, you start siphoning gas from abandoned cars and gas stations on your wandering way. Fill up your ride and voila, you're back on the road!

Reality: Any combustible, including those used as car and motorcycle fuel, is a chemical compound with a life cycle of its own and therefore an expiration date. After as little as six months to a year, gas is no longer a useable power source for any vehicle.

MYTH #3: WHEELED TRANSPORT

Myth: Whether breaking into an abandoned garage, or just checking the ignition in an abandoned vehicle, you're always exchanging one stylish set of wheels for another one and tearing off into the endless expanse of the Wasteland.

Reality: Even if you're able to find workable fuel and charge the battery, in ideal conditions, without a mechanic these vehicles can only do what they were made to do for 7-15 years more. As soon as the paint begins to peel off (which happens within a few years), corrosion starts eating the metal at a rate of 0,3 inches per year. After 20 years, any car abandoned in a coastal area will already have become an indistinct rusted skeleton. The same fate awaits these man-made constructions in other climate zones in 30-75 years. Man-made metal constructions will last the longest in a dry desert climate. The only consolation, no matter how senseless, is that the tires will stick around for 100 years after the end of the world.

MYTH #4: EVERLASTING CANNED GOODS

Myth: Year after year you and your friendly band of courageous survivors search abandoned houses for canned goods. Of course, sooner or later you find these delicacies, and feast around the fire remembering the world before the apocalypse.

Reality: Reality: The good news is that ideally selected, sterilized food in a hermetically sealed container can be stored practically forever if kept at a low enough temperature. The bad news is that cans have two weak points: the packaging is susceptible to destruction and the environment can be a destructive influence. The true expiration date of canned food that you read on the can is not the time when the contents of the can will spoil, but the time when the metal of the can will corrode to the point of having holes if the protective coating is scratched away. Beyond that, the processes of conserving food for home storage (probably not long, 1-2 years) and for long term storage (50-100 years) are very different. So, first of all most packaged products left in homes will be destroyed by rodents (as well as the package); and secondly, what remains even after 5-7 years is unlikely to be edible. Of course, this does not apply in arctic zones where the constantly frozen climate helps protect food products both from decomposition and rodents.

Description
Release date: February 2016
The Fall of Gyes is a sci-fi kinetic novel with stunning cinematic quality and an intriguing story inspired by classic sci-fi horror films of Ridley Scott and and made in After Reset™ setting.

Originally it was based on the successful Kickstarter for the Fall of Gyes graphic novel: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/blackcloudstudios/after-reset-the-fall-of-gyes. We tried to create a kinetic novel that has the same cinematic and storytelling quality of classic films like The Thing or Aliens, in a claustrophobic atmosphere where no one knows exactly what is happening or who the enemy is until disaster strikes. We've recently published that kinetic novel on AppStore exclusevely for iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fall-gyes-sci-fi-kinetic-novel/id1057013775

A year ago we also published the concept of the Fall of Gyes kinetic novel here on Greenlight as a concept (though I occasionally deleted it :) . Now I'm posting TFoG here as the game which is ready to be published not long after it is selected by community. So if you'd like to see and play our game on Steam, please, vote for us :)

Despite we’re just small indie, I reckon, with time we even will be able to add full voice acting for the FoG. For the maximum enjoyment, the game is intended to be played before a sleep in your cozy bed. The price is intended to be just several dollars (right now it is free on AppStore with the ability to back us as much as you like. If you like the game, all funds we receive from the FoG will be used to make more of such stories with more choices (leading it to be like painted Telltale's games finally) and to extra invest our primary "big RPG of the dream" - After Reset RPG.

Thank you, guys, for your support.

Sincerely,
Richard.

IndigoAK, I really know what you mean. Frankly, as roleplaying DM and writer I also prefer books. Though, I dig Hollywood sci-fi concept arts as well (Prometheus, Aliens, etc.)...

Anyway, your post encouraged me to list some of my favs sci-fi books that inspired my work on the setting of After Reset universe: http://steamcommunity.com/app/335850/discussions/0/451850849185254543/

No problem. Despite my wistfulness, I believe that literature is literature, and while yours might not be the same as mine, literature is still something that needs to be preserved and spread in all its forms.
