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).

We have our rough cut in for our Kickstarter video for ISR, edited by Travis Sterner and filmed by Absolute Digi both out of Seattle. We pretty much went all in on this, and it paid off. The video is perfect.

Hi players, our video editor has said that our kickstarter video will be completed within the next 2 weeks. When it's done, I'm interested in doing a soft launch on Desura and gauge your reaction to it. Your feedback will help us make the actual kickstarter more effective and get our production moving again.

We really appreciate you staying with us, as we pass through this part of our journey where we learn the realities of finance, and persistence of fans who have found a great game : ).

Thank you so, so much.

Jake

Update!

Hello Faith and other players! Yes we've been very quiet lately, there hasn't been any news because all of our attention has been focused on kickstarter.

Our creation of a kickstarter campaign in the early months of this year got going in fits and starts. I learned on Kickstarter that you need a presentation video that sells, and it needs to be slick. At the beginning of the year, I went through two videos which I weren't happy with. Now we have a third, final and perfect one that's in post-production as we speak.

I Shall Remain is not going away. I Shall Remain, remains. When our kickstarter is up please check it out and support it. Its success will allow us to expand the game and create multiplayer.

Hey Jake,

You guys have been silent for quite some time. We could use a progress report, please. Last thing I heard was that you were getting ready for a new Kickstarter and you are on Steam Greenlight. Just a bit concerned because you have been maintaining silence for such a long time.

Hmm last i tried the game was performing poorly, lots of framerate issues even with my gaming PC and default settings. Alpha build so i will wait and see for updates, seems worth it on the paper!

Same here. The game is maxing my GTX 560 ti and I'm not even getting a steady 60fps. Considering the graphics something is wrong. Until I can get that under control I'll have to stop playing.

Hey bud, if you mean can it run outside of Desura it sure can just track down the install file and it will execute. We don't have multiplayer up on the game yet so there's no need for an internet connection.
