Hi there, and welcome to a new Dev. Diary on 3:00am Dead Time.

There is a lot to talk about in this new article, with the multiplayer portion of the game already in development, a first trailer for the Early Access release coming soon and many new features and characters being added right now.

Let's start :

3:00am Dead Time Multiplayer

Since we got approved on Steam Greenlight, we've been working full speed on integrating all the multiplayer functionality to the game, as well as Steamworks. So far, this is the short list of what we've done :

  • New and improved Input Wrapper for 3:00am Dead Time
  • Network wrapper for the legacy Unity Networking system, with full auto-discovery and automatic data sync. management.
  • WIP implementation of a safe system to recover lost connections and move the server to a new player in case of lost servers.
  • Full Steamworks P2P networking wrapper for the game.
  • More than 6 new characters for the game.
  • New single player events, content and paranormal phenomena.

Just in the last 5 days, more than 100 hours have been spent testing and coding the networking system, tracking all bugs and polishing every single component of the game to give you a highly improved experience in this first Early Access release, that gets closer.

We are also reworking from scratch the way our scenes and assets are handled and made, to allow for a smoother workflow, that will let us easily add updates for the game and smaller downloads for you. And with new models every day, new features and content added constantly to this version and tests performed daily, we are working hard to make sure 3:00am Dead Time becomes the horror game you deserve.

Last days for the IndieGoGo Campaign,

and the game on Eclipse Pop Culture

Our IndieGoGo campaign is getting closer to its end, and while the game's Early Access version keeps in development for a coming soon release, there are only a few days to get it at a reduced price and DRM-Free.

Be part of the development of this game and experience all the stories, the horror and the many adventures 3:00am Dead Time has to offer before anyone else, at the same time you try out the new features and help us build a bigger and better game.

And as a last bit of news, 3:00am Dead Time has been featured in Eclipse Pop Culture, in their games section, and we share it here with all of you to read :
