Description

This is a point-and-click adventure set in a near future post-apocalyptic world where women now rule. After a radical women's group hijacks some nuclear missiles asking for a share of world power with men but are met with resistance, missiles are launched from both sides and a nuclear winter ensues. A thousand women at a conference survive and establish an all female society underground. Later in the year 2044, they discover a lone male preserved in a hibernation capsule during a mining operation.

The player, as the male, escapes imprisonment and explores the society looking for items that will help him while avoiding female androids. Your character will talk to himself in a digitized voice and there is also another male voice that narrates the story and provides hints. Each screen must be searched for "hotspots" which can also be examined and are indicated by a magnifying glass cursor. Similarly, you can pick up items if a hand cursor appears. When you examine items, they will rotate in a special full-screen viewing mode. Some items can be combined in this mode.

Trivia

Inspiration

This game is a remake of the original A.D. 2044: Seksmisja for the Atari 8-bit platform, which came out in 1991. In terms of the storyline and setting both games are loosely connected with the Polish comedy Seksmisja (Sexmission in English). The movie featured two guys being hibernated for too long - and waking up in the underground city, which turns out being inhabited only by women. The movie has a faint, but still very much noticeable anti-socialist-system edge. It became one the most popular and widespread Polish movies - especially in the former Warsaw Pact countries.

Awards

A.D. 2044 won the Golden Disk'96 award for the best Polish game of 1996, granted by Świat Gier Komputerowych magazine and Hitek'96, granted by the readers.
