The war ended with bombs that tore our world asunder and rebuilt it in their own image. From the wreckage, new shapes and forms emerged that we had...have no understanding of. In many ways the Zone is a child of those bombers
Concept for a personal IP called KOM-44. An alternative history where the Soviet Union becomes the Kommissariat (KOM) after bombs fall at the end of WWII. The KOM remains untouched and surrounded by an immense wall, but the rest of the world has become an immense exclusion zone filled with anomalies and land that defies time and physics.
