HROT is a single-player retro FPS set in a small socialist country neighboring Soviet Union (Czechoslovakia) after an unspecified disaster in 1986. Those times were terifying and so is the game.


HROT is a single-player retro FPS set in a small socialist country neighboring Soviet Union (Czechoslovakia) after an unspecified disaster in 1986. Those times were terifying and so is the game.

You start in a civil defense shelter deep under a Prague Metro station. As a proud holder of the military readiness badge you know what your duty is: put on a non-functioning gas mask, load the vz. 52 pistol and protect the peace and your socialist homeland from the strange intruders*.

  • The classic gameplay and vibe of romeric shooters from 1990s including a fitting brown retro aesthetic.

  • You'll find a shotgun, a vz. 13 SMG, a rocket launcher and even some secret experimental Soviet battery-powered weapons (e.g. a ball lightning launcher). If you run out of ammo, you might find the hammer and sickle coming in handy.

  • Handcrafted levels inspired by real locations with an emphasis on historical details. Every level contains socialist paraphernalia which nowadays can only be found in museums or your grandma's attic**.

  • Flushable toilets and destructible light bulbs.

  • A custom engine written in Pascal imitating 1990s software-style rendering with unfiltered textures and polygon jitter.

* Madmen in raincoats, killers in protective suits, autonomously attacking dogs, horses and goats
** Eastern Bloc only

The concept seems to be typical yet refreshing. I think FPS like this can be pretty fun to play. I look forward to the game, hopefully I may get it through discount days.
