WARSAW, POLAND — 20th of February 2020 — Today Arclight Creations and Klabater launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter – Help Will Come Tomorrow is a true-born survival game and another step in Klabater’s bold journey in search of meaningful & history-inspired games. After great success of We. The Revolution game, the company decided to add another unique story-driven game in its portfolio.
Please visit Kickstarter page for Help Will Come Tomorrow. Developers want to expand the scale of their already ambitious project. The game will appear on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on April 21st, 2020. Manage scarce resources, build and expand your own camp, hunt & craft, face social inequalities between survivors and stay alive in the Siberian frost.
“We are happy to finally unveil more details about Help Will Come Tomorrow along with Kickstarter campaign launch. The game was shown during Gamescom 2019 previously, and we are now in a much more advanced stage of development”. – said Wioletta Maleszyk, Arclight Creations Co-Founder and 2D Artist – “This is why we decided to add a demo to Kickstarter page, to let everyone know that Help Will Come Tomorrow is already in a good shape and fully playable. We really think that we have found our own unique approach to survival game formula, with a more narrative-driven and psychological touch.”
In an uninhabitable Siberian wilderness, in the wake of the October Revolution, a group of passengers survive a mysterious catastrophe of a Trans-Siberian railway train. They must endure in a harsh ice-clad climate until rescue arrives. Facing many dangers, their own weaknesses and, above all, their own prejudice, passengers from different social classes will have to unite and make decisions that often go against their beliefs. How and if they survive and at what cost is up to the player.
The basic mechanics of Help Will Come Tomorrow focus on the survival of the characters (fulfilling their needs, gathering resources, expanding the camp, taking care of security, and exploring the surroundings), but players will quickly find out that in order to win, they’ll need to learn the personalities of the characters and figure out relations between them, mitigating conflicts and taking care of morale. Players may choose to act selfish but cooperation is key to both survival and keeping a clear conscience.
“Following We. The Revolution, Help Will Come Tomorrow is another game published by Klabater that, despite being a completely different gameplay experience, explores the subject of human condition and individual perspective usually hidden in the background of important social and historical events. – said Michal Gembicki, Joint CEO in Klabater – “This time we move to the Siberian wilderness in Russia in 1917, just before the Great October Revolution started. We strongly believe that mature players will have a great time with this demanding survival title, blended with well-written story and historical inspiration”.

The way the player manages the relationships between the survivors will have a significant impact on the success or failure during the game.
MANAGE & SURVIVE
Help Will Come Tomorrow is a challenging survival game, especially at the higher levels of difficulty. Manage scarce resources and stay alive in the frosty wilderness of Siberia before help arrives. There are many systems and mechanics in Help Will Come Tomorrow which will pose a big challenge for the player. If the frost doesn’t kill survivors, the wild animals may. If they escape the animals, they may run into humans, who are even more dangerous. Danger hides everywhere. Build and expand your own camp to increase the chances of survival.
UNIQUE STORY-DRIVEN EVENTS
Narrative events that will occur during the adventure are part of an important and crucial exploration system in Help Will Come Tomorrow. Exploration means that at least some of the survivors need to leave the camp and scavenge for supplies and hidden areas. These expeditions are often risky but may end up rewarding the player! Make sure your survivors are properly equipped.
