Deriva | 0.260 " Quo vadis? "

We rolled out a new major update the last weekend with a lot of new features. In order to survive ingame you will now need a more tactical approach. Everything matters! Which island you choose to settle at start, the temperature/humidity, meteo effects, whether if you carry an item with one or both hands, and so on. Finally the derivan prefers to sit while sailing with the boat. You can also sit everywhere and that will recharge your hands strength faster than standing. The real goal is to let the player know that every action you do matters and every item you find is precious if you want to survive. A departure to another island in search of food or rare raw materials without proper equipment could be a fatal decision. So i think that the classical sandbox way of play will not be really represented in this game. Lately there are a lot of upcoming sandbox games around. Check them out :)

Thanks to the unity3d engine it was no great effort to port the current game on linux and mac os x. I'm not the only one that really hopes that linux gaming has a bright future.

The ingame menu is now comfortably navigable with a joypad, maybe in front of your tv :)
Further changes and fixes are listed at the bottom. We would really appreciate some feedback or a few small inputs for our next updates. That's all folks!

The tutorial needs to explain more. Me and my little sister were confused at first but we got the hang of it on our own! Couuld you please add a whole lot more items in the future? It is really easy to get bored of right now. Hopefully a shelter of somesort soon as well? Could you please fix some more bugs like when I try to fight it just does nothing. Also please make the hunger and thirst bar more clear, I didnt know what they were at first!

Hey, I'm glad you figured out the basic game controls. But I know how you feel about the game and really appreciate your precious feedback. We are working hard on an upcoming update that will make a lot of things better. But it's too early for massive content. First the player interaction with the environment needs to be solid :)

Multiplayer is currently not available. I will reactivate it when there will be more ingame content and gameplay features.
