Env - free version built for Linux based operating systems. Uploaded 15/04/14
An abstract first-person physics platformer which has you survive in a variety of environments against forces beyond your control that are tearing the world apart
First up, I just wanted to say I'm frankly humbled by the fact that Env still gets close to 150 visits a day, and around 40 downloads a day, in spite of it being a very weird, very rough free game released over a year ago. It's a huge confidence boost to know so many of you take interest in.. whatever the hell this game is.
Since my last update, when I was working full-time on Env, I got seriously burned out making the game - it was a brutal process, because making the game the way I have forces me to think a lot about the subject matter of the game - environmental destruction - and that's not a happy subject, and because so much of the game is focused on making the player very uncomfortable instead of being fun, I found it harder and harder to justify the requirement for the discomfort to myself & my peers
That said, I kept making tweaks & changes, got a fantastic soundtrack composed for it, and right now, the game is super close to being ready.
BUT over the last year I've also been working on another game, Barbara-ian, a very different and purely fun-focused game. Barbara-ian's going to be releasing on Steam in around a months time all things being well, so my time is pretty much solely on that right now.
Once that's done, I'm going finish Env and get it out there. Pretty soon I'll set up a Greenlight page, and try and use all of you fantastic, wonderful and good looking people (gosh, look at you! Incredible...) to help me get the game out to all the rest of the wonderful good looking people out there.
To anyone whos been paying attention all this time (and to the end of this post), you're a hero, and your patience will be justified. Just hang on in there and have a good weekend!
