ATOMIC HEART Is Reportedly A Colossal Mess As Mundfish Don't Know What They Want To Make

According to the latest report, Atomic Heart development was rebooted five months ago, as the developers don't really know what they want to do, shifting ideas influenced by DOOM, Prey, and even Dark Souls...

Atomic Heart is a truly fascinating beast. The game is being made by a relatively unknown Moscow-based studio, telling the story of a fictional technological revolution that has forever changed the USSR leading to its fall. At its core, Atomic Heart is an action RPG with FPS elements, putting you in Agent P-3's shoes, a KGB officer who is trying to figure out why the mysterious Facility 3826 went dark.

According to Telegram writer Korovany, the works on Atomic Heart are a complete mess. The good news is that the recently released extended gameplay is reportedly real, but the game's debut trailer was mostly fake, with only snippets of real-time gameplay rendered in Unreal Engine 4. The bad news is that the majority of developers at Mundfish have never made a C++ or UE4 video game before.

As reported by Korovany, their inexperience led to recent layoffs, forcing Mundfish to outsource "a lot of work." Considering that the studio's CEO Robert Bagratuni apparently doesn't have any knowledge about developing games, it shouldn't be surprising the developers don't really know what they want to build, shifting ideas inspired by DOOM (because "someone liked finishers" in the reboot), Prey, and even the Dark Souls trilogy, as Atomic Heart development was reportedly rebooted five months ago.

In Korovany's opinion, the game's art was made by one person, Artyom Galeev, “who has been nurturing the concept of the game for many years." Mundfish also has no idea if they want to launch Heart as a full game or episodically (one chapter would apparently feature five hours of gameplay).

Korovany also noted that Soviet Lunapark VR, which was supposed to be a VR game set in the unsettling Atomic Heart universe, was "a cashgrab with people who bought it left behind." The VR experience was officially canceled in December and Mundfish still hasn't revealed if those who bought the early access version of the game on PC (via Steam) can expect to receive a proper (or any) refund.

Remember to take Korovany’s revelations with a grain of salt, as his report may not reflect the reality.



Atomic Heart is an adventure first-person shooter, events of which unfold in an alternative universe, during the high noon of the Soviet Union. The main character of the game is a special agent, who was sent to a highly secret object by the Soviet government after it went radio silent. Soviet setting with a pitch of insanity, action-packed gameplay and a thrilling story will keep you entertained for the whole duration of your journey into the world of Atomic Heart. Unfold the secrets, restore peace and order, and show the Motherland what you got!

Atomic Heart is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
