I think it's about the internal power struggle during/after the collapse, but that's just a hunch off the name and footage used to advertise it. My initial impression was that it's already pretty much ogre when it begins, but it's Kremlin Games and they love the idea of saving the USSR. Maybe the ideal endgame is a snatching the status quo from the jaws of defeat type deal.
It could be a sobering reality check on their other late USSR games where you're trying to keep the entire thing together with duct tape, assassinations, and balcony defenestrations, but that's just speculation. I'd like to see some of that grim realism though as long as it didn't just lock you into "grim realism" choices, more options for when you're shit out of luck would be good since you spend a lot of your time there normally in their games. You see it coming through in Ostalgie with all the extra optional stuff like the party, USSR and so on trying to fuck you over constantly. Switching the harder settings on switches you from nuclear armed international villain RSFSR-replacement to a struggling to survive periphery state that didn't prepare enough, watching everything slip through your fingers.
Near total spoilers for Ostalgie: Boogeyman DDR is fucking amazing to play though. Backing the RAF, bombing peace conferences, evading WMD treaties, framing NATO for shooting down a plane of your reformists, turning DPRK into a nuclear state, assassinating Deng, sending a hit squad for Yeltsin in his Dacha, storming the Russian parliament are all incredibly cathartic.
But yeah, probably not the greatest thread I've made, but when I was playing it I saw it had 10hr left on sale and thought it was best to make it sooner rather than later.
