Indie developer Pulsetense Games has reached major milestone in the development of Solarix, the stealth focused survival game for the PC.

To coincide with this new milestone, Pulsetense Games has also launched a new website and forums for fans to follow the game’s development prior to launch next year.

Solarix Producer Mark Gregory commented:

“It’s been an amazing few months, since the Kickstarter the whole team has pulled together and Solarixhas really progressed. This is in no small thanks to our fantastic voice actors who have worked with us to get the game to this stage (Alpha). Saying that it's been important to the whole development team that we create a stealth experience rooted in the core of the genre.

We are always looking for feedback across our social channels and forums so we encourage fans of the genre to follow us on this journey.”

Nice job, the game has potential and slight System Shock feel is good thing. Im glad you improved your AI. It looked really weak in some video. I have few questions:

- Please make sure that AI is not completely deaf (at least when there is water on the floor, or when opening doors etc.). Nowadays in some stealth games you see players running just few steps after a guard like phantom or ghost who makes no sound. Its unconvincing and shallow. Also when AI notices you and you hide again in the dark its imperative for AI to be able to search for you. To be convincing is more important for stealth games than for most other genres.
- Could we expect more sci-fi gear, some hi-tech scanners like movement scanner or heat (Predator-like) vision? Invisible laser barriers? Spectral illusions/suits? Very fast small drones? Id like to see sci-fi areas or guards that use such things. So to hide in the dark wont help you when your enemy has heat vision in his helmet. You will need some gear to supress your body heat (there can be different types of gear with different efficiency). But this gear could make you slower and vulnerable to some other type of scanner etc.
- Please make AI cooperative to some degree. Every guard should communicate with central hq or his commander, everything can make global alarm. It would look stupid if guards would report nothing to others, lost their minds and search for you mostly alone.
- If Im correct the game takes place on station that should be destroyed and closed. But in video it seems like the guards come there to guard it. So I hope that its just my incorrect impression and all events are explained and logical in the game.

Anyway I wish you luck with the game. Have a nice day.

Im very interested in this game but i feel you are not exploring full coverage in order to reach your kickstarter goal and that occulus rift support should be a bonus not a priority maybe a stretch goal. I don't know if you have any trailers on youtube but that would be a good start and get some yt personalities a review copy maybe take a look at Greenlight just seems sad that there are far few watchers for this on moddb/indiedb as its not well known for such a profesional looking project.

Hi,

Thank you for your concern. Rest assured we have been meeting ourselves coming back marketing this game. We have not mentioned to much about the Oculus Rift as we know that is a stretch goal. Currently there is no game to review for YouTubers however we will be living streaming development of the game soon via our Twitch TV channel.
