Desktop edition includes: Enhanced full stereo chip tunes to nod along too, Unlock-able challenge islands, Offline local storage and Enhanced full screen display features! It also includes a full standalone PC installer and Mac App version. Includes 'The Making of Reprisal', a 38 page digital book charting the highs and lows of over a years development! ★★ download.reprisaluniverse.com ★★

0 comments by reprisaluniverse on Jul 22nd, 2014

I realise I've not posted much about the actual development lately, so here’s a number of screen shots in a story board style and some comments. 

First up is the screen showing overall progress. I call this the ‘Sky Map’. It will give you an overview of your progress so far in the game, score and also notice the ‘Universe Rank’. This is your position in the universe compared with all the other players around the world. 

Once past the progress screen your presented with the star system (providing you have collected the first Amulet on your home planet) Once here you can drag and explore the system travelling between different planets. The only thing that will stop your progress is you ‘Influence’ range. If a planet is outside this range then you wont be able to get to it. You can expand your influence by successfully reprising islands. 

You will also have a journal that charts the amulets you have collected - a total of 10 need to be discovered - and also entries that are logged as you progress. This is quite a new feature and will help to drive narrative I hope. You’ll be able to call this page up at any point in the star system section. 

This screen shot shows the island views for the selected planet. You can scroll through these but will need to Reprise each island in order to unlock the next. You will also be able to see how discovered this planet, how many explorer’s are at the planet, who last settled the planet and also which explores left Legacy’s on the islands. Legacy’s allow players to customise and change the islands leaving them for other explorer’s to play. 

Once you’ve selected an island, your into the game! - Expand, build, use totems, use new Wonder totems, collect XP and so on … 

The above screen shot shows a XP item has been collected. XP will allow you to upgrade and improved your totem powers. 

Here's the class upgrade screen. All but three of the totem powers can be upgraded in 5 levels of class. Depending on a totems class level different behaviours occur such as length of time the totem is active for, or power of the totem. 

That's it for this update, I'll leave you with this animation of Hestia rumbling across the landscape causing havoc! :D

Would be great if this runs under Linux! Bought it, because it says playable on Linux but you can't get AdobeAIR for Linux anymore:(

Yeah it sucks, the Linux version has been compiled to Air 2.6 the last Linux Air release (http://helpx.adobe.com/air/kb/archived-air-sdk-version.html) I'm looking into alternatives also ...

I loathed having to install Adobe Air, especially an old version, but Reprisal runs great here now on my Ubuntu 12.04 laptop. Didn't take a lot to get it working.

This game is pretty fantastic! Multiplayer would be pretty cool though (not many games need it but I think it would be pretty cool in this one)... even if it is just LAN I would really like to play with some friends.

Yes this would be great and its on our list. We are starting to get into real time multiplayer for our next game Battle Keep so possibly for Reprisal 2! There's a lot of infrastructure that needs thinking about and dev but that's half the fun :D

The Linux version of Lone Survivor sucks because in fullscreen you don't have keyboard input. I don't have such problems in any game released as AIR package (for example Cardinal Quest, Cardinal Quest 2, Reprisal and Anodyne).

There is a guide for installing Adobe AIR 2.6 on Ubuntu which worked for me splendidly and for many others.

As I said, I'm NOT running Ubuntu. I got the .deb, but because elementaryOS doesn't use Gnome Keyring, the installer throws and error and then fails.

You should look at the answer with the most votes as it has description about missing libgnome-keyring.
