I have been working diligently to program and implement the valuable core features of Coldenlight.
In the next few days I will release a shortened version of a long video explaining the future of Coldenlight. Today I will show you a few screenshots of things featured in the video and brief explanations of a few features discussed in the upcoming video.


In this news post:
I. Cooperative Gameplay
II. Open-World Levels with Randomly Generated Content
III. Unlockable Items, Equipment, Heroes, and AI Mercenaries
IV. Next-Gen Minecraftian Level Design
V. Episodic Releases
VI. The future of Coldenlight
VII. End of First Alpha Stage
VIII. Future Funding
IX. Recruitment and Free GameDev Classes


I. Cooperative Gamplay

The first episodes allow players to operate cooperatively against AI, other players, and/or both AI and Players. There is a lot of freedom in Coldenlight's development, which has lead to a wide variety of game modes. Coop, Versus, Versus Coop, Necro Versus, Capture the Castle, and many more. - And among each one of these modes is a wide variety of unique and randomly generated scenarios within multiple environments.

II. Open-World Levels with Randomly Generated Content

Each episode will contain a variety of open-world environments. Each of these environments will offer a new experience each time you play.Each level has an "AI Director" that selects and places various AI and environment props, including rare content/AI used to unlock rare achievements.

III. Unlockable Items, Equiment, Heroes, and AI MercenariesNewNews01a

While playing the game you will unlock achievements that unlock more content. The content is not neccessarily more "powerful." It is just different.It will give you more flexibility over how you start the game. You will have a limited number of points to select your starting equipment.Achievements can unlock a variety of useful items and equipment, as well as heroes and AI Mercenaries who can accompany you into battle online.In addition to your starting items, you can obtain items throughout your time in the "Chapter" you are playing with your friends.

IV. Next-Gen Minecraftian Level Design

Over the years I've been developing a system to handle destructable levels in a similar manner to minecraft - but with nice next-gen graphics.Not cubes, but detailed 3d geometry. I have a pretty simple solution for this and near the end of the season all levels will use this system.For the first episodes, only a few bonus levels will have this system implemented.

V. Episodic Releases

I want to release 6 Episodes by April 2016. My target rate is 1 Episode a month, but the first few episodes will be released a little slower.I have huge amounts of content and levels to work with and refine. After this first season I expect to release 12 episodes a year.

VI. The Future of Coldenlight

I have three important systems that will undergo drastic changes on each release. One is the realistic minecraft style environments.The other is a very complex organ system that contains a heart, lungs, stomach, eyes, ect. and a brain that efficiently controls them all.The player character of Coldenlight has a connection to its environment like no other. The survival aspects of Coldenlight are unparalleled.The third system I will not discuss yet, I'm going to sneak it in there soon ;)

VII. End of First Alpha Stage

I've closed the current alpha funding. Anyone who purchased the game while it was available will recieve a very special edition. This very small group will recieve very exclusive content. It won't give them an advantage, but when players see them; they will know they are someone of importance.

VIII. Future Funding

Very soon I will be releasing a rather long video with detailed explanations of a lot of the features and the direction the game will be taking.Along with this video I will be starting a kickstarter or indiegogo campaign and spreading it around as much as I can. I am interested in speaking with any reviewers and interviewers who are interested in the game. If you have a youtube channel, blog, or website, I am open for discussion.Soon, I will have an opportunity for our fans to earn an exclusive achievement that unlocks special content. They will unlock this achievement from advertising the game with a special code.This is going to be very limited, so contact me now if you are interested.

IX. Recruitment and Free GameDev Classes
Coldenlight News Header 01

Over the years I have always been contacted by numerous individuals and teams wanting to work with me.I am going to increase my focus on assembling these people and helping them fill in the gaps in their knowledge and skills (if they have them)As this progresses; I'd like to offer people of all skill levels the opportunity to be a part of our community: with the possibility of becoming a part of the project.If you need help I'll help you personally, but everything is dependant on your ability to improve and hunger for your work.

Thank you all for your interest in this project. A website and more information are coming soon!

This is a stress test, featuring a small portion of a level. This is ran through the stock UDK. The programming, player movements, and sounds do not reflect...

So I dropped alpha funding money because I dig the art style. Is there any content/functionality in the current game other than a map to walk around in?

In the available version, you just roam around trying to survive. You can wait outside the hidden door( looks like some weird alien nails) for the UFO to fly past and itll open it for you. Entering this area will end the level (theres something in there wont exactly spoil it tho). You can also end it by finding all of the weird diamond things.(theres 6)

In the next version (releasing it around the 20th for alpha funders) The map is 9 times the size, there is some platformer, maze, and gathering elements to the gameplay, you can sprint. You're able to get a weapon to kill the enemies. You can save or sacrifice an infant. You can save an angelic infant (it is a key of a gate to ancient neptune), which will bring u to another level. The ufo will unlock secret doors that lead to portals and things that regen life. There is enemies that attack you, and a few other things. It's a substantial upgrade.

This isn't all that's in it, just a generalization of things to do. There's more to it, you'll see soon though :)

Wow even creepier playing it.

Bought it last night, major problems downloading it through Desura., It kept giving me an MSVCR100.dll error window. Had to go to Desura's browser and download the .exe file to my hard drive, When launching .exe file it reqired me to drop System 7 to XP service pack 3 compatibilty mode to continue.

Needless to say it is up and running and playing through it is freaking me out. Thanks!

Thanks for the comments, OPM!
And thank you for informing me of that error I will have to look into it. I'm able to launch through the Desura browser, but I will continue to upload the EXE installs incase this error keeps arising. I'll try and look into it and figure it out. I am using Vista myself so maybe it's something to do with 7.

I'm really glad its freaking you out! haha. The next version should be even scarier! It'll be coming out in about two weeks!

Thanks again!

Its very interesting, being chased by the shadow beings is like something right out of slenderman.

The first time it happened I was like: "No, no, NOOOO!!!!"

The minecraft'y stuff looks really interesting, I'm very interested in the concept of an adventure game that will possibly be cooperative multiplayer?

Why aren't there more games like this?

You either have to play a rotten MMO, that I personally hate, or you have to settle for single player adventure/RPG type games.

Sounds like you could be carving out a tidy little niche for yourself.

Thanks for the comments, Youre! It is definitely going to be coop multiplayer. It'll be a little while longer before It's coop, but soon! I agree with you about there not being enough coop adventure games. I love coop games and there really needs to be more of them!

Thank you very much for the comments!
