I Shall Remain (ISR) makes you responsible for the life of one US Marine who has awoken in a Zombie infested world. Its up to you to lead him on a path that will allow him to survive, fight back and become a leader of men. ISR has superb artwork, music and storytelling that is reflective of the high quality standard that its creators live for. Its creators have challenged themselves to leave a lasting impression on the independent gaming industry with a serious, entertaining and cost-effective game dedicated to a group of young people who created a culture. ISR will be released in episodes. Each episode of the game will build on previously installed content and will have new features, content and will tell a new part of the game story. The game's prologue will be released in January 2011 for free and will include a tutorial so players can have a running start when the first game episode is released.

Hows it going Desura!

Jake Way here, it's been a long journey and we're finally ready to make a kickstarter debut. We've quietly been gathering everything we need to make it happen successfully. I've attached to this article an image of our first contributor gift. It's a beautiful rendition of Michael's quest log that players can have as any kind of creative journal. It's leather and handmade! These below are prototypes. The final cuts will have 'I Shall Remain' delicately placed on the front cover. Nothing too crazy though, I personally can't stand it for instance when I get a T-Shirt that screams the company name across the front. I'm all about subtle and beautiful.

On Kickstarter we plan to raise $30,000.00. This will be enough to cover the costs of completing a multiplayer function for the game- which will make ISR an absolute blast to play and market our Steam Greenlight campaign. Currently we're 76% of the way to the Greenlight top 100 list. We're well positioned but we definitely have a fair amount of work ahead of us. (Greenlight link here: Steamcommunity.com )

Also heads up, we're currently working on a new game map that will replicate the battle of Dien Bien Phu. Similar to what the French experienced in that battle in 1954, there will be no way to win. You will struggle to survive as long as you can. The French battles in Vietnam have always fascinated me especially because many of them were carried out by the French Foreign Legion. Back in those days, the ranks were filled with tons of soldiers who were joining up to continue their military careers and to avoid the Nuremberg trials. Who were these? Former Nazis. Well before the United States had entered Vietnam, former Nazi soldiers were covering down on the defense of French interests there and fighting the Vietnamese guerrilla fighters.. that blows my mind! I can't say anything about whether or not what happened in Vietnam in those days was right but I do know that there were lots of great fighters whose lives absolutely sucked fighting in the nasty rain and mud with limited support and that they fought well.

Thank you so much for your continued support and we look forward to interacting with you here on Desura. Feel free to hit us up with any comments or questions. Many of them might be receiving a video response from our new team member Lindsey. Nothing like being able to speak to fans in person.

Live and fight hard and happy zombie hunting.

Why not try posting on their forums at Ishallremain.com as well, I'm sure they'll be more likely to see your feedback. I'm not too into linux but if any indie developer can afford the additional resources I'm all for it.

If the journal just says "I Shall Remain" on it with nothing else then I'm totally in. That is a great idea. I'll be happy to tell anyone who asks what it is from but I like the ambiguity.

As for Linux support. As far as I know they wrote the engine from scratch which means it is much more difficult to support Linux. Games developed with Unity or something like that have an easier time of that.
