I am Emir Cerimovic and Almost Alive is eight years of drawing, coding, game designing… all done by myself. I decided to make this game and have been drawing, animating, learning how to code, and building this game with a passion to have all the elements and details I want.
Inspired by classic role-playing and tactical games with high development standards like Fallout 1&2, Jagged Alliance 2 or Wastelands, Almost alive was my dream of the perfect tactical role-playing game with a great real-time combat system that features character mental sanity as one of the core elements of the game. You can explore a huge world, make friends, use or steal them, find tons of loot, make traps, sneak, destroy everything, fight smart enemies or mutants using your character skills and abilities… The simple looking real-time, fast-paced combat system is hiding a highly complex engine using tons of information from your character sheet, the objects your character is using and other elements like your character moral or his sanity in order to decide of timers for a successful aim, recoil of a weapon, the maximum accuracy when walking or running while gunning, the effectiveness of a cover, etc…
