The game features:
The game is in early access, the development is about 80% finished. The last playable build can be found in the game repository Releases section.
The 2022 was pretty difficult, I (the only developer of the Forward Only) was working hard to finish the game, but due to reasons, try to guess which, I had to relocate to another country. Visa, buying a house, organizing job - I'm deep in all of it, and looks like it'll last for the whole next year.
To somehow help the game, I've changed the repo rules, so that other people could contribute to the game without much efforts. Also I added issues, mentioning the main things I was going to do. You're very welcome to take part, push fixes, new models, maybe even mechanics, and, of course, add your name into the game credits. If you have bigger propositions for the project, you better open an issue to discuss it first. The same applies for music and SCP Foundation crossover - they are protected by author rights of their creators, so it's not recommended to do anything with them without preliminary approval from the right owners.
I had a plan for the whole Forward Only franchise, so I'll try to solve all the mess and return back to full scale development. Until then, hoping for you to take part in development.
