I Shall Remain

I Shall Remain Beta Update is here. We've been working hard for the last one and a half month to push in many of the feature and content we planned to have, as well as some of the suggestions you had and debated in the forum. We succeeded in most of the things we aimed at and that's what makes this release special in our opinion. Following are the key elements of this release:

- Finished main story content and quests
- Initial character background perk selection on new game
- Hardcore mode
- Three new aberration units
- Enhanced attack mode
- 20 more secondary trainer quests
- Flares can be used as weapons
- One more unique weapon
- More quick events
- More achievements

I Shall Remain

To people who want to get a good feel about this new release, we suggest them to start a new game since there have been changes in many aspects throughout the game content and logic.

One thing to mention also is the fact that the default input has been changed, we use now Right Mouse Button for Enhanced attack mode in both camera controllers. The second controller uses Alt to rotate the camera around the character and Middle Mouse Button to rotate the character around itself.

Another thing to mention is that the updated animations for the main character and the teammates are 95% done and will be in the next update.

I Shall Remain

The list of the major fixes and changes made for this version

- F1, F2 set different camera perspective in both camera controllers (the F2 setting is more top/down and will allow players to see more of the map but might decrease performance in some cases).
- Sleeping makes more sense now in game's economy (you gain % experience for a certain amount of time after you wake up for the whole team).
- Added the option to use the Antidote item
- Brightness option added (can only be set from main.ini for now and it's only a testing option 0-100, default 50).
- Contrast option added (can only be set from main.ini for now and it's only a testing option, 0-1, default 0).
- SmoothFramerate option added (can only be set from main.ini for now. Might decrease performance so use carefully. Should allow us to get away of the tearing effect on the screen when running 0-1, 0 default).

I love how the fact this game has been out and i have had it for months and still cant play episode 1, they havent touched or developed this game since 2012, what's goin on dude, im startin to feel screwed over here, ntm the bug that crashes the game while in survival mode is highly agitating.....So are you gonna finish what you started and continue adding onto what could be a great series, or are you afk for the next forever and give us the finger while the incomplete game sits here getting bought, it may be only five bucks, but it is still five bucks dude.Game has so much potential, and it feels like you are throwing it all away and abandoning the game, last comments were from either 2012 or the update from 2013. Don't let a great start off game die. it is like showing us candy, us reaching for it, then you yank back and say SYKE! Cmon please fix the bugs and give us more of this great game

Can you post the link? I'd rather not email a random person for something that should be uploaded to Desura.
