Happy New Year!

All our team wants to thank you all for the patience and understanding, we really wanted to release this update earlier, but life has its own schedule. But we’re back again, thanks to a friend’s PS3 that temporarily sacrificed its hard drive in order to bring our server back to life. If you are not aware of what happened, the short version would be a dead server right on Christmas time which made us delay this update.

By now, we’ve restored almost everything, the only thing we decided not to include in this build is the hidden underground locations. They are really cool, but require some work to integrate them in the world.

Changelist

Map

There are plenty of new things and improvements but I’d want to start with the world map . This part of the game was revamped completely. Now you have the whole map to explore freely in any order you want with no red zones blocking your way. To make navigation easier, all explorable locations were given special icons which represent their types

Village

m_city

m_ruins
Ruins

m_forest

m_industrial

m_start
Starting location

The world generation system has undergone some serious changes as well. Instead of the fixed coordinates, each location will be spawning procedurally on the world map. Moreover every point on the world map became explorable. This gives us more freedom with random encounters and small events.

Workbench

A long awaited feature - the workbench makes it possible to upgrade weapon and body armour. However to build one, you would need a Set of Tools the number of which is quite limited in the world. There is always a chance to break an item. The chance depends on your crafting skill and upgrade level. Repairing will slowly degrade the max. durability of an item, and after a certain point the item may become irreparable.

Characters

The last but not least, Maria has finally joined the game! It’s not an easy character to play, but if you like a sneaky play style and some extra challenge she is the best option. Besides the starting HP of all characters has been increased

Ingvar 300 HP
Stas 250 HP
Maria 180 HP

New Items

Metal Plates
Melee Upgrade Kit
Guns Upgrade Kit
Felt

World

The world consists of 39 locations

Thank you,

Devs

P.S. Soon we will need a few volunteers with linux machines;)

Hm, I thought I heard that there was going to be a save function eventually but I guess not. Untracking, not a fan of permadeath. Good luck with the game though. :)

Alright. Well, is there an ETA on that? I'll buy the game as soon as that's in it. The reason I assumed it wouldn't be in the game is because everyone but me seems to be fine with the game in it's current save state. So it seemed like you were going in a different direction. I'm sorry if my post sounded rude, I was trying to make it sound nice while expressing my opinion at the same time.

It's fine, no offence taken)

I think it's just a matter of taste. Some people prefer to discover new things every play through, and treat death penalty like a chance for a new experience, others see a set back in it.

Anyway, another save system will be implemented once we start putting the quests into the game. Wish I could tell you the date but at first we have to finish the dialogue, NPC and quest systems. Unfortunately, It all takes quite a lot of time(((

This looks seriously amazing, we'd love to review it some time. Just message us if you're cool with that.

But on the real, keep up the great job. Really impressed.
