2 comments by florinudrea on Oct 6th, 2014

I Shall Remain' forth update is here. This time the setting changes, we move to late Autumn with four new weather presets and we enter Jersey rural area. Two new maps (the Newport Shelter and Jersey Safe) have been added (a total of 19 playable currently), country side theme is complete, special quest-like quick events are in as well. We can now rest on beds in Safes, Infected resistance to weapons has been temporarily removed (we want people to let us know how does it feel without it) and there are options to restart the game after you died (either on the last house you've been in, at the start of the map or at the last Safe you visited).
A lot of improvements and additions made their way into the update as well.

In all honesty, I think the alpha should either be free, or at least sold a more reasonable cost. While the game looks extremely interesting to me, I can't find a justifiable reason to spend $15.00 on an unfinished game, regardless of how close it is to completion.

Just my thoughts, nevertheless I'll likely be purchasing this when it's finished, or if the price is lowered.

Hi @psychomuffin, thank you for your appreciation!
The price has been chosen with regards to what the final version of the game will be as well as for financial considerations related to the game development and Scorpius Games being an indie company.
There will be periods with discounted price when people who wouldn't or couldn't afford to get it before, could purchase it.

In regards to the game being unfinished, its true but that's why is marked as Alpha funding so people who don't want to play it beforehand, don't want to participate to its development or don't want to support it, can choose not to.

We want everyone interested to play the game even if that means some people will have to wait until is finished.
But thank you nevertheless for your feedback, it's something we are always interested in listening to.

Also I'd like to ask, will there be a possibility that an SDK may be released some time after the game is finished? It has been shown a countless number of times how giving the community the ability to add user-created content has benefitted the life-span of a game.
On top of that, what are the chances that we may see a multiplayer component become implemented in the game. As similar to an SDK, multiplayer can allow for users to have more invested and unique experiences, therefore keeping the game from growing stale to quickly.

About releasing the SDK we have to think about it because it is very complex on one hand and requires extensive knowledge about the inner workings of our game/engine to start with. But is not something we dismiss as not being possible, only that this will be a decision we are going to make after the game is released.
Is indeed true that our editor supports creating the game visually in perhaps 90% of the cases but at the same time it has it quirks and it's not as streamlined as we would like it to be.

Coop multi-player on the other hand is something we are actively thinking about because we think it will greatly boost the lifetime of the game as well as make it all the more interesting.

Thanks for your suggestions!
