Metro 2033 The Last Refuge


Description

Year 2033. Horrible Post-Apocalyptic world of 40000 people. They have been living in metro of a big ex-USSR city – Moscow, for 20 terrible years. Nuclear war destroyed their homeland. These people are the last representatives of mankind - human cycle of evolution nears its end, new species (very ugly) appear on the surface of the Earth and deep inside of metro. Some people inside the metro still remember happy years before THAT DAY and they still believe that one day they will return up to the surface. What’s present is a very heavy psychological atmosphere: small children who will never see sky, old people who still remember the PAST times, and young men and women who fight for their world, for their children. Each station became a country, with its government, army, borders and many other things from the past. Firearms cartridges serve as currency. This small dying world is a precise copy of the past big world. Do these humans have future or we are doomed for extinction? Maybe answers can be found on the surface, or in deep secret military underground laboratories. Who knows?
