NO RETURn Winter & Summer Seasons


Welcome Scotland3D

Why is V1.135 so brilliant?
I think it was just the attention to detail that went into the grass texture and trees. With unreal tech I really pushed the boat out and tryed to see what I could do visualy. Photo realisum is hard but with NO RETURN V1.135 we got pretty Fracking Close. If the game does make it into virtual reality as planned i think the realisum will really freak people out.

A lot of time was spent in microsoft paint really seeing how we could make the most of the new technology and bring out every detail. I think the time we spent on it really shows. Its one area I can hold my head high and say yip we did that well. In years to come I expect designers will still be wondering how we achieved it.

I really like the weapons, can we expect more in V1.14?
Bullet camera quite rightly got some rave reviews and so once the arrows have some camera tracking it will complete the classes for now. Melee is a key class but I wouldnt expect anything soon, Im sure you all know by now I have a pathological hatred for animations. Only joking, sticks, stones, spears, shotguns will all be added at some point.

When is the female playable character getting added?
I found a free mesh so maybe sooner rather than later. Once you see the mercenaries in V1.14 you will realise my rigging skills have gone to pot so dont expect too much. if WW3 is just round the corner im certainly not going to worry about rigging.

Seasons In Game Really Blew My Mind, How Was it Achieved?
I think it took us something like 6 months to finalise. The snow particle effect alone took several artists till lunch to do. With the right code the effect just comes to life in game, its quite incredible. To get such good realisum is down to the team. The sheer qauntity of snow flakes on screen at once is probably going to fry a few machines.


I think the single player is brilliant, when can we expect more options?
Stuff is flying into the dev build series at such a rate its coming out the other end very runny. Frame rate loss was my primary concern but given everyone else has said frack it and locked even AAA games at 30fps we may as well do the same. Ive decided on a res so low to compensate and keep the style of a decade ago which is what we wanted. Running at a stagering 10fps gaurated on Dx11 2GB GPU. Smoking! Better Water Cool This Puppy Before She BLOWS!

Sounds brilliant, when does the game go live on steam?
The game you can get for free right now here on INDIEDB, NO RETURN's spiritual home. We try to reject popularity and shun it at every turn. otherwise we risk loosing out indie status. And if we ever lost that we would be opening our game up to ridicule.

The player seems to be able to aquire super human health and life expectancy will this be set to a harder level in V1.14.
V1.14 will put you in an adredaline fueled panic attack with moments of peace to reflect on the horrors unfolding all around. One life will remain. I will fix it for multiplayer.

When did you realise you probaly had the best game you had ever played on your hands?
Good question. Id like to say early on but it wasnt until say V0.002 that I thought hey this is cool and could be something amazing. I think the sheer quantity of 10/10 reviews gave us a boost which you need when trying to make something really great for PC gamers and not selling out to the EVIL 30fps brigade. Its good to see we galvanised so much support early on and have received one donation for what we have achieved so far.

What we have achived here visually would probably cost $200 million to reproduce at todays prices. Its hollywood quality and thats why we take our time with it. NO RETURN in theory could be one of the most expensive games ever made.

So you think v1.135 is the pinicle in gaming then?
Its been in the 19,000+ list of indieDb for over a year. That just dosent happen unless you have a serious KICK ASS GAME!. NO RETURN is that indie game. Its not finished but you can sense the quality already. We can sit people down in front of camera to tell you how good it is if you would like.

Do you think it can rival far more successful titles and franchises which have emerged along similar concept lines.
if you mean can it make more money than them then the answer is obviously NO.
NO RETURN is free so we will most definetly lose that competition. We relie on the more moraly sound and radical donation model. After all someone once said dont store riches up for yourself here on earth. I just feel sorry for the guy who made minecraft, thats a shit load to try and spend in a lifetime.


GREAT! Whats new with V1.14 that you havent told us.?
Did I mention its free?

Yip. Can you explain how the player ended up in the situation of NO RETURN. What event triggered these world changes?
Its going to blow peoples minds is all I can say about it just now. Youve seen the quality and care we put into the visuals already so the story will have as much time spent on it as well. We arnt going to cut corners we can assure you of that. Something like 2% of our dev budget ($200 total budget) isnt being allocted to the game trailer, that is a huge percentage for development these days.

Ive visited the New forum, how is it going?
Great. We have had a great response to the New Forum with 1 member joining. Granted that was me but I have tried to convice the programmer to join as well. If all goes well we should have enough members for multiplayer come 2025. Which is probably for the best as Im currently learning multiplayer code which is far from easy I can asure you.

Any Last Words to Watchers Before we Close?
NO RETURN Will and always will be for PC only, locked at 60fps for Pure PC Gaming Fans. Enjoy in Full Screen. Edit the .ini file for higher resolutions. And if you need to ask will it run on my machine then the answer is probably NO. And Yes I am dislexik but I get buy using other words that I no. Sorry if that upsets people.
