Failed State is an upcoming indie game that will soon be released into early access. It's a 2D sidescrolling adventure set in a post-apocalyptic world. You play as Rose, a young girl trying to survive and find a safe place among the ruins of once prosperous civilization.
The graphics and presentation style are pretty familiar to anyone who enjoys indie projects: you have your pixel art, your retro animation and atmospheric music. Having said that, you can immediately see the love and care that the developers have put into the environments and character design.
Judging from the trailers and from what the creators are saying about their brainchild, Failed State will have not only platforming, but also RPG and adventure elements in its core mechanics. The goal of the game is to tell a story while keeping the player on edge, so you will need to interact with various characters, find your way around the world, maintain your inventory and craft weapons and tools.
Overall this project does not look like just another indie game of even another generic post-apocalyptic story. It has a lot of promise, so if you want to play Failed State online when it out, make sure to follow the updates.
