Post news RSS Blood Trails and Justice!

You can now track a murderer by following their trail of blood from the crime scene!

Posted by on

When you kill somebody in Colonies, it is no longer an easy task. Not only must you kill the person (either in their sleep or in combat), but you must also avoid any trackers who may come across your path of blood you leave from the crime scene.

Blood Tracks

If you have a high eye stat, you may also track the trail of blood on your minimap. To combat this, you can have a friend cover up your blood trail and divert it in a different direction to confuse trackers.

Other updates added this weekend were:
- You now sleep when you log off (be sure to sleep in a secure location!)
- All server crashes and bugs are now fixed
- GUI re-implemented with LegendWeaver's GUI graphics
- Simpler chatbox with chat colors!

Great! Is the game closed beta or only in development?

Kinda both. I consider it in "alpha" at the moment, but we're churning out new features and fixes so often that it would be hard to have a solid testing session for longer than a day.

Those who successfully help with Alpha will get Steam keys once it's released. "Successfully" means that the tester is a valuable asset and actually tests stuff (note: testing is very different from playing).

I also plan on having some sort of affiliate program for those who make successful let's plays and youtube videos about my game.

With that being said, I'm going to be creating the forums. On there, you'll be able to sign up for alpha and possibly help test Colonies if you are selected.

Yeah, pet NPCs and your own defenses will be the key to survival. Don't ever go to sleep/log out in public places ;)
