Congo - v0.1c

Greetings! We have just released our v0.1c update, a few immediate fixes for some of the feedback we've been getting over the last few days. We are working on our next big update - v0.2a but we wanted to add some really pressing issues that we'd had feedback on.

v0.1c Change Log:

  • Added transparency to leaves - foliage will go transparent if it blocks the camera
  • Added more informative loading messages
  • Added progress bars for objectives
  • Added more hint messages
  • Fixed a bug where you couldn't access Inventory after being knocked down
  • Fixed some level holes
  • Various bug fixes and optimizations

Tree transparency has most definitely been our most requested feature. Leaves and trees now become slightly transparent when they are blocking the player. This has been something we were only possible to achieve since the updates to Unreal Engine 4. We had built this system a long time ago, but lighting on transparent materials was dodgy back then and we found that assets would pop too much due to the changes in lighting and broke the atmosphere.

Congo - Leave Transparency

Would love to hear your thoughts on the new update, if you haven't tried Congo out yet then you can grab a copy for £6.99 / £9.99 here:

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!
