Me vs Me vs Me. iPad Air vs MacBook Pro vs iPhone 5. Online test.

I've made quite a bit of improvements and wanted to show some screenshots of Barren Roads:

Poppin a zombie

Walking around.

Some Busted Vehicles.

Hope you don't mind the development GUI. I use it to read indicators such as health, food, water, shelter, and blood. Screen shots are from an iPad Air.

I've got Barren Roads into a few testers hands and feedback was generally positive. One tester noted: think of it as a in your pocket, tablet, or Mac dayz in a fallout world multiplayer.

Barren Roads is the only game I know of that plays Mac vs iPhone vs Android vs PC vs Linux. I think I have the only games that does that. How do I know those platforms can play against each other? I've already tested it.

For those who don't know anything about Barren Roads, its a streaming open world multiplayer survival game based in an Apocalypse world. And it works. You can play online or via LAN or go solo without internet. There are tons of places to explore and tons of loot to find. And its permadeath. You die, you start over.

Check back here for more updates or follow me on Twitter: vonstarone.

I'll likely ask a few of my twitter followers to help me with some testing. Stay tuned!!!

I've considered Kickstarter. I've spent a considerable amount of personal funds on this. Kickstarter would be helpful to have dedicated servers, additional exposure, and expanding the game. But, I'm not certain.

I haven't made any PC builds, but it shouldn't be a problem.

@GamesInspire games like barren roads are best experienced at least on iPhone 5 and above.

@GamesInspire yeah. But not very good. I had to strip everything for 512mb. Recommend you get a stronger device.

6hours 37mins ago

@GamesInspire hoping the end of this year. If not early next. I think your going to have a blast. Nothing but good feedback so far.

@Le0_0reo Yes. I use the same model now. But I'll move on and allow you to pick genders and character styles as I progress the game.

Me vs me vs me. iPad Air vs iPhone 5 vs MacBook Pro. I love it.

@GamesInspire I hope end of this year or early next.

@EnaToR926 I'm doing my best to support as many devices as I can. It works on low end, but graphics will suffer even more.

Nov 23 2014, 2:06pm

@GamesInspire Bout 5 bucks. I'll probably run a first week special though.

Nov 23 2014, 2:05pm

@GamesInspire in a few months. It is coming along very nice. I'm happy with the progress. But it still needs much more. Stay tuned!

Nov 23 2014, 3:37am

@deepwoody Its challenging for sure. I can't wait to get everyone online. I think I might have just nailed the online version.
