Everwinter

It’s been a while since I’ve visited an apocalyptic sim. Currently, however, the choice of new builds to visit is Halloween themed, or… Halloween themed, so when there was the choice of a Halloween themed apocalyptic sim, that’s where I went, to Everwinter

… I was quite impressed. I stopped going to apocalyptic builds because they all became such cookie-cutter, cut-and-paste affairs, with the same rusty playgrounds, burning vehicles, all that stuff. While Everwinter is actually, pretty much, composed from the same items, that composition is quite nicely balanced. The lighting is gorgeous, which is always a major draw, for me…

… the place is very cluttered, but with just the right amount of clutter…

… there is some nice, ironic, whimsical humour, here…

… and some wonderful 1920’s music…

… to counterpoint that 1950’s design collateral that is the go-to skin for ‘post-apocalyptic’, post-Fallout…

… there are nods to many themes, here, from ‘War of the Worlds’…

… to ‘Fallout’, which is not only blatantly referenced, somewhere in the sim, but subtly referenced everywhere… this scene under an overpass, is straight out of Fallout, including the lighting…

… so, even though it is all fairly cliched…

… Everwinter is still very photogenic, and well worth a visit.
