1 comment by Neo_uk on Nov 19th, 2014

Congo will be released on Steam Early Access on the 27th of November. This is an amazing event for us, we're so happy to be announcing. The current state of the early access build is obviously quite limited in terms of content, but we feel it has all the core elements of what we want to achieve in the game.

After having done lots of work to transform our game into a singleplayer experience for EGX, we had to spend a lot of time reverting it back to it's co-op state which was actually a good experience. It gave us an opportunity to re-think a lot of the gameplay elements and it's turned out better in the long run... I think.

Our current build contains one full map which we're expecting to take people around an hour or more. We have tested it among ourselves, and despite knowing everything about the level and what to do, we have not completed it within the hour. We're also hoping to be releasing the second level only a few weeks after release!

Would love to hear your thoughts on it before release, we have a number of different ways you can do this! Can check our Twitter page @Congothegame or head over to our forums at www.CongotheGame.com !

Is there a main plot?
If there is, how long is it going to take?

Shouldn't you be able to use higher poly-count models using Unreal Engine 4? These look a bit too low-poly for todays standards. I'm talking about the demon & character models.

Hey brainz, you're right the character models are surprisingly low poly especially for Unreal Engine 4 but if you compare the human model which contains a wireframe, you can see that the high poly version is over 40000 polys and the low is under 3000... But the reduction in detail is definitely not relative. This game is also not first person and due to the camera position and the premise that visibility is highly restricted, you're not likely to be in a position where you would notice in-game, but you're right, I should probably showcase the engine at it's best but I'm addicted to reducing poly counts!! Maybe I'll use those saved polys on environment assets :D

Hey OvenSlug,

This game is not based on the book, after a quick google search, it seems they have a similar premise!
