You have been stolen out of time and space and placed upon a strange alien world. A strange glowing structure in the immediate area is the first thing you notice. As you stand there, others begin appearing from around the structure. From here, it is up to you to survive in this harsh world as there appears to be no immediate way back home. Will you work with others? Will you become a protector or destroyer? Will this be your new home, or will you try to find a way back to the world you once knew.

Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: Launcher available for testing

0 comments by grimgary on Aug 23rd, 2013

Contributors and Helpers have had a few days with the first test of Epica Rex. Now I invite everyone who is willing to join us. The new launcher will soon be available for download here on Indie DB for the remainder of this testing period.

The launcher will download the game if you don't have it right now. It will inform you from then on if there are new updates and so on. This doesn't mean there is currently a new version of Epica Rex at this time, but you don't have to worry about having missed a message with the launcher.

This free period of testing will last until I get the game keys (thus the testing keys) in order. If you like the direction the game is heading, I sincerely ask you to contribute (via the Contribution page above) and you will get a testing key (or keys depending on your contribution).

Thank you!

If you want to try out my Ludum Dare entry, you can download it and see it for yourself. Don't expect much, as the game was created within 48 hours.

A great effort by an amazingly talented artist and developer! I have had the pleasure of testdriving various early builds and technology test builds and I am thrilled with the progress! I am really looking forward to the next release and I think you should jump on board!

Hello Jade! As already pointed out, the build you downloaded was a stage very early in development. A proof of concept really. There will be more control over the world when more gets done. Stay tuned and thanks for checking it out =)

@MrChunky22 I saw. I'm just being socially retarded lately. Don't have one of them fancy docs, just a bunch of scribbly text files really ;)

Happy Turkey Day to all those who are Turkey Dayers =)

@DragonEph Well, it worked. And I was happy. So yeah! =)

While I would like to claim it was a smooth learning process...it was more like fixing a calculator with a large pipe wrench via pummelling.

I figured out some things I needed to make Epica Rex in Unity a reality today.

Nov 22 2014, 5:33pm by grimgary

4.6 rather...not 4.5 ;P

Nov 20 2014, 10:38pm by grimgary

To that end. I've been freshening up on Unity 4.5 scripting and object usage. =)

I had to set PROXY aside for other issues, but I'm getting back to it. I was working on Epica Rex (still am at this moment).

Nov 20 2014, 10:37pm by grimgary

Proxy being a single player game, does not need certain functions I need for say, Epica Rex. Namely a useful and working UDP wrapper.

Nov 20 2014, 10:36pm by grimgary

So yesterday I put forth a small tidbit of my frustrations with Blitzmax. This does not effect PROXY...
