Nuclear war, post apocalypse, barren and lifeless wastelands.
Lifeless? Not so much!
Mutated insects have made their home in a bomb shelter and they're set on exploring the world.

Much potential..

it works fine - except for some annoying control issues, that is. It looks like someone put a lot of effort into this games, and it shows. It needs some work, but is worthwhile.
