It's been a long time since the last blog entry. You may have guessed that we've been very busy with finishing the first part of INFRA. Exterminating bugs, animating, enriching the world and filling the story with details. We've also started to prepare shipments for our Indiegogo backers.

Here are some pictures of the locations we've been working on:

Former blast furnace of Stalburg Steel, which used to be a major employer in the Stalburg region. It's still one of the tallest freestanding structures in Stalburg, catering a great view over the city for those who dare to climb on that crumbling thing.

Some extra functionality has been added to the city, like ATMs and ticket machines. The city transit authority wouldn't like the player boarding the metro without paying for his ticket.

We've also been working on a really cool way for the player to move around in the old tunnels. A crude raft will get the job done – provided that you can avoid the falling concrete chunks and obstacles along the way.

How the campaign has progressed, and your feedback.

Those most overlooked are often the most important. INFRA puts you into the shoes of a simple structural analyst. Nothing more than a quiet desk jockey assigned to survey some routine structural damage. Quickly though, your mission turns from a mundane...

But that would be cool, modding Infra, with Infra, then we mod that with Infra.

It would be nice to have a game similar to Penumbra where the scares are great yet few and far between (and perhaps not even corporeal). Already this game is looking spectacular, but mere puzzle solving and touring truly can get tedious after even a short while. I understand this is intended to be a very detailed exploration and puzzle game, but perhaps you could include a scare every once in a while--even if only sounds, ambiance, lights shutting off with the hint of something to fear, et cetera. It would help keep the player interested and would certainly add increased mystery, enhanced immersion, and psychological fear evocation. It is my opinion that these factors would do nothing but better the game and make it more appealing to a wider range of customers. As said before, the "scares" do not have to be particularly prominent nor frequent--just something to keep the players on their toes and to add that bracing psychological effect that so many gamers and non-gamer alike adore. I implore you to consider my points. On another note, your work is stunning--keep it up!

I don't agree with the "everything as to be scary" idea. Just have a look on Portal 2. Probably one of the best game ever made, nothing scary, and great immersion.
There is an indisputable point : great game means great immersion. Not necessary being scared.

It is apparent that you do not understand what the term "immersion" certainly does not include emotional eyeball robots and a firearm that shoots holes into objects that go into a relative dimension of the second hole... which you then jump into and float around in order to save the damsel in distress or whatever. Immersion is the feeling of being the role you play. Horror is a perfect example of this. Why would any real man be scared or thrilled due to pixels on a computer moniter? You find yourself psychologically sucked into and immersed in the world you explore. A final note... you paraphrased-quoted my post quite foolishly and unjustly. If you reread my original comment, you would realize that my suggestion is merely fear as an undertone. Oh, and by the way: PacMan was a great game... although I can't entirely say I found myself immersed. Thanks.

i'm sorry if the quote if my previous comment looked that much foolish. English isn't my first language, and i have to deal with my limited vocabulary.

You said : "Immersion is the feeling of being the role you play." Yeah, i understand that. But i don't like horror that much, because, in my opinion, horror is the easy way to bring immersion. It's not hard to frighten a player behind a screen, especially when the soundtrack is involved.
That's why i liked Portal 2. Immersion doesn't come from scare caused by a huge sound following a deep silence, but just by the game's atmosphere.
And atmosphere looks to be a great (the best ?) part of Infra's success. That's why i think it doesn't have to be scary =).

I find my self agreeing with pilatomic, fear I believe, while effective in some cases can be over used, the point isn't to evoke fear at every corner, the point is to force the player to use their wit and observations skills to fulfill a duty, or survive as an individual, sure somethings may be scary, the unexpected collapse of a ceiling may invoke a feeling a terror, but -unless stated by the developers- isn't to directly scare the player.
