Hi Guys,

This will be a rather short update. Today I will like to share with you the latest update on the exosuit.

Exosuit HighPoly

The exosuit which is modeled by our talented character artist Tito Belgrave. It was a very difficult model, but alas it's done. It will be packing massive firepower, a rail cannon on one arm, and a gatling on the other. Currently this is lock in place, but as with the Soldiers, we aim to allow customization, so you could potentially make a melee build with tanks, or a sniper build with spider legs!

Public Test

On24th of April, which is next week Friday, we will be uploading a playable build to indieDB. Barring any major bugs (which we have squashed mostly, I hope) and if the God of Internet Connection speed allows, we will run our FIRST EVER Public Test! I would like to invite you to give the game a test run, and hopefully get some feedback from you.

So stay tuned for the Publ, and I hope to see you guys in-game!

Ok I'm gonna make some points based on gameplay video
First the first gun took a long time to kill that guy and it appeared to be no reticle? Also the gameplay speed is VERY fast. Now I do understand the soldiers are somewhat suped up but for gameplay purposes this makes me worried. You exhausted a lot of your clip in the first kill so in a 8 v 8 this becomes a problem. The scope looked kind of useless when everyone is moving so fast.

Kills took long time, a lot of clip was burned with most of the kills and shield only adds to that. With the gameplay speed being so fast just raises an eyebrow is all. Encounters usually don't last long in FPS games with the usual being 2 seconds at most in close range. However the scoped automatic part(:48-56) lasted 8 seconds in close range when someone was using sub machine gun. That is ok if it was only a dueling game(1v1) but assuming this will be team deathmatch that poses a problem. Game looks great btw I have high hopes for it. I'm being very critical on purpose, this can all make for great team combat for all I know. Won't know for sure until alpha. :) My Regards

Hey there! Thanks for the feedback! Really appreciate that you took your time to write this. I do agree, that part of the video I was supposed to be dead, and I thought I lucked out.

Looking back at it, it seems to be one of the obscure bugs we are facing, hopefully we can fix that before the public test. We are still in the progress of tweaking and hopefully the public test will give us an even more accurate data and opinions from you. Hopefully you will join us in the public test?
