C-zom @ Triptych Fan Trailer # - "L T"

Thanks so much to LT for making this fan trailer, which amusingly enough will precede the actual Triptych trailer due out in a week or two. I'm glad Samael got a proper, eerie introduction to the fanbase now at least.

C-zom @ Nearing Release: Private Testing

Post here, PM me here or email darkcraftstudios@gmail.com to take place in the testing phase. It's extremely appreciated. You would be privy to ChapterIntro, Chapter1 and the Sarconian History cutscene.

RAID 0 failure due to a violent storm rendered those HDD's destroyed, as well as all TWON development files. I cannot patch what no longer exists sadly.

Triptych is alive and well. I'm ironing out an infinite amount of polish and level design directives in order to further the experience to my vision. The trailer has been delayed because the music from the composer has also been; without music, not much of a trailer, is there? A pre-release media post will follow when that trailer is done. Stay tuned for more in the next two weeks.

C-zom @ Our Lord, Samael

I believe knowledge comes with a burden unknown to all. A primal fear, a realization that all is not as it seems and that with each step towards consciousness comes consequence. To transgress to the true occult, the realm of truth, comes a stoic's worst nightmare; that you are alone, but yet, even your own soul cannot be trusted. You run on borrowed time, with a debt not paid off since the dawn of man.

I am hoping to have a final update and the full story trailer to be done December 1st. Keep posted for a slew of media updates until then. An Episodic Release is being considered; I'd love your feedback on the previously denied idea.

The story in Triptych is cultivated within the embraces of Gnosticism, Occultism and Sumerian Mythology. An Ancient Civilization had summoned the Demiurge down from the Heavens aeons ago, and paid the ultimate price, but live on as Necromantic Cults that the Brothers Caulm accidentally found.

Triptych will direct a particular, and sinister, view of the underbelly of philosophy and lost theological ideas in a subtle and insidious story of familial betrayal and Lovecraftian undertones.

Question 02: I would kill monsters regardless, there's loot for money along the way.
Question 03: Totengott. It means Death in Celtic.

Most of this community would recommend you start with SHOC and some safe, vanilla, starter mods for it.

CTD whenever entering Yantar or Truck Cemetery. Using .10 patch, latest AO3, not much else.

We're still on track for the end of this year. No holdups! Moddb added an October release date for some reason because we put in Q4 2016, sorry about the confusion/false excitement!

Act II is about to reach Gold status, with all eyes turned to the final harrowing Act before post-production begins. New Development Log Post in two days.

I would attempt to organize an effort against the monsters and maintain logistics, otherwise taking command against the incursion to the best of my ability and of those around me. I would not flee unless commanded to do so for strategic purposes by someone above me.

Certainly. I would attempt the rescue but bail if there's no hope. Think smart, not heroic.

If the ultimate finale of our rebellion was to fight to the escape pod you better believe it. If I was stealth in the halls nad happened to notice it, and them, I would move on and count my blessings later. There's always a way, even if it's not the most obvious route.

Level Design flaws/glitches; non-functioning game elements/triggers, general assortment of bugs and visual indescrepancies and other things I can't test for that often as we grow closer to release.

All objectives are denoted by a visual highlight and particle effect (Levers, Doors, Books) that will be demonstrated later next month in my first tech trailer. All that's left to do is mockup the tutorial controls on each page on the bottom spaces.

TWON is released, and can be played at any time. It's final state needs only a micro patch to fix, but it has no demand and a lot of the root files have been corrupted over the course of multiple HDD transfers.
