I Shall Remain

Our seventh update is here. Since this is the last release of I Shall remain in Alpha stage, the update focuses on bringing new content in. Four new maps, complete achievements list, new weapons and improved textures are the things that make up the release.

At the end of next month I Shall Remain reaches Beta state and everything there on will mostly focus on polishing features/functionality and fixes (and probably adding a few more things here and there)

I Shall Remain

There are two important changes to the way we interact with the game which are worth mentioning first:
- By default we pickup items with the F key (you can still set it the way you like it but the old setup didn't work correctly with the fixed camera controller)
- By default we toggle flashlight with the C key now

I Shall Remain

Changes in this release:

- 60 Steam achievements added

Hi Tomsto - right now the zombies are inherently attracted to you, but for most of them you have to walk into their area before they spawn. Others, will spawn from across the map and continually move toward you.

Is this subject to change or an intended feature? If it will change what is the planned implementation? As in will they have an "aggro range" where they can see/hear/smell you or will they always know where you are, etc.

Hi Tom & SuperG33K,

Multiplayer is something that is in-progress and we dont have ready for the game yet. We will be working on it full time and add it into the game after we knock out our kickstarter campain.

Thank you so much for trying us out and we apologize for not having multiplayer ready yet for you to play.

Jake
