ATOM RPG, the promising Fallout-like game that's currently in Early Access was updated recently and it continues to get a lot better.

It's still on the rough side, but all of their updates to it so far have been pretty good. It has a lot of promise, so let's go over what they've added in the latest update.

Firstly, they added in submachine guns which comes with a new Automatic firearms skill you can put some points in. They've also added in new types of attacks, so you're able to get in close and kick a weapon from an enemies hands, blind them and so on. The AI is also now able to use their legs to kick you during a battle. All of this results in battles that are quite a bit more dynamic and more fun overall.

If you manage to get a companion and keep them alive, you might also notice their AI pathing has improved too, they won't just block you way so much now. You can also now finish the Factory quest line so there's a little more to do. They also fixed a bunch of bugs as well. As for the next update, they said they're working on a big one so it will be fun to see what else they add in.

Find ATOM RPG on Steam. Rough around the edges, but it does scratch that Fallout-itch somewhat and performance seems pretty good now too.

I've stopped paying for betas (yeah yeah I know this is suppsoed to be to support etc etc etc), but dang if I will buy this one if it turns out to be good.

The pricetag worries me, though. A good RPG takes time to make, thus money. So how long can this main campaign really be, or of what quality?

I've played it for roughly 16 hours now and I have had plenty of fun with it. It really feels much like you'd expect "Fallout 3" to feel, if Bethesda hadn't taken over the franchise. There's already a lot to do and the basic game feels solid enough to recommend, even in it's unfinished state.

However, there are locations that only have an "In Development" sign on them, or that have lots of structures and scenery but no characters and the main adventure is not completable yet. They have promised to keep releasing new content even after the release and given what they have produced this far, I feel that this game is on the right tracks.
