I Shall Remain is a Post Apocalyptic ARPG game with Survival aspects. Located in the old New York city at the end of WW2, when Nazis managed to release a deadly virus over US territory, the game puts you in charge of finding a cure and at the same time, keeping alive Humanity's hope of survival.

0 comments by florinudrea on Dec 4th, 2014

Note: Since a lot of logical changes have been made to Doctrines and Weapons, it is suggested to start a new game in order to have it working correctly (the game won't crash but the doctrines and weapons won't do what people were used to have them doing)

I Shall Remain

Key features in the I Shall Remain Sixth update.

- Ellis Island map extended and updated
- Two new maps are in (Holland Tunnel Subway and Alphabet City)
- Doctrines have been revamped and updated, 28 new doctrines have been added (128 in total now to shape your character)
- New doctrine effects (avoid explosives, max encumbrance, pierce armor, more scraps from weapon dismantling)
- Weapons have levels now, the level influencing their characteristics (damage, repair cost, most of the weapon effects, serum cost)
- We can now upgrade our weapons by spending scraps/serum (Enhance ammo, Increase rarity, Increase Level, Add random weapon bonus). This opens up new possibilities to upgrade and improve your weapons
- Weapon Enhancer loot items added (these represents an effect we can apply on a weapon, from range to damage or inflict weakness). This opens up endless possibilities to customize your weapons
- 10 new Infected mutations added (Regeneration, Burden, Drain, Osmosis, Enrage, Rejuvenation, Acute sense, Aura, Armor, Crowd), each with its own logic to improve the infected behavior and statistics. We have now 22 mutations the Infected can have in any combination)
- Added "Unique' rarity. 8 new Unique weapons created, all given as quick-events rewards. Some of them have special names :)
- Large texture overhaul. Recreated many textures and adjusted others. Generally higher resolution, new normal mapping and sharper details overall
- Main and secondary quests and content added and updated (new quests from Andrea, Thomas, Jim, Chain, Jay, Cathy)
- 12 new music pieces are in
- New teammate - CJ Hodges (Sibling and Commander abilities)

I Shall Remain

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.
