    Glory to Arstotzka!

    A Dystopian Document Thriller.

    The communist state of Arstotzka has ended a 6-year war with neighboring Kolechia and reclaimed its rightful half of the border town, Grestin.

    Your job as immigration inspector is to control the flow of people entering the Arstotzkan side of Grestin from Kolechia. Among the throngs of immigrants and visitors looking for work are hidden smugglers, spies, and terrorists. Using only the documents provided by travelers and the Ministry of Admission's primitive inspect, search, and fingerprint systems you must decide who can enter Arstotzka and who will be turned away or arrested.

    This.... game.... it is killing me (and my ingame-family).

    If you want to see this game being published via Steam, go over to Greenlight and VOTE IT UP!

    Fuck yeah! You cannot bribe an officer of Arstotzka!

    You know, I kinda know this game in real life pretty well (minus the strip searches), so I think I would be pretty good at it.

    Also, I did pretty good in beta. I started making me a safety buffer right away - one day my family did not eat, the other day we had no heat in our dwelling. After hungry days the son always gets sick, but his medicine is cheap. I can do about 12 people a day (10 when I had to actively strip-search people), so all in all I get me about +10/+15 dollars every day. Which means I am ahead of the game, cause in real life in the fucking Ukraine that would count as a decent income if you don't have to pay for food or rent with this money.

    You know, what? I'll do the beta again and try to kill my family.

    Lol I tried denying all Kolechia Citizens on the stage where the suicide bomer will slip in, and the game never stops even tho the time is finished. The bomb really has to explode..

    Lol, this is a problem. It'll probably be fixed later, though. Maybe the terrorist will blow up the line or something like that instead.

    Okay, I am taking a break from this... finished full 31-day run two times. Got 3/7 badges and 8/20 endings total.

    Also, my left eye hurts from checking all the documents. I really need a break.

    Game is seriously addictive. Dangerously so. Also, funny fact - in this game you would always be more happy to find reason to reject a person, cause if you grant him visa, you will always worry about maybe missing something.

    Did my first run helping secret organization. They are fuckers, I don't like them. Still, my boss is also a right bastard giving diplomatic invitations to prostitutes! Anyways, on the first run I got ending overthrowing government (oops, we can't say that on the internet anymore!) and many of incarceration scenes. I made a few mistakes along the way also, so I couldn't get the ending where I would run to another country with my whole family.
    Second run was easier knowing all the tricks and documents. Aimed for perfect run, but game doesn't allow you to have full 31 run without at least 2 citations. Oh well, had only those two. This time got good money, managed to get whole family out of country. And also got the ending where government is pleased with me and tell me to continue my work with all my past mistakes erased. Unlocked endless mode. Fuck no I will not even try to do that.
    As I said, I will take a break and then I will try to do few more things. I will try to off my family, first of all. Also I will try to be kind to those people who really beg and allow them into country. Will probably get more badges that way at least. And by that time there would probably be a wiki that would tell how to get all the ending I would miss )
