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!
