So what's up, Gervasius "Doc" Twinkelminkelson here. I added the "Doc" since nobody can seem to pronounce my name and this just makes communication all the more easier.
In the meantime there's DayZ, I suppose, but Multiplayer co-op is said to be a feature in the official release, or maybe sometime sooner if we're lucky,
I don't know if "forever" is a safe word to use when programming a video game about ghosts. :P Last thing anybody needs is to program a game for eteeeeeernityyyyyyyyyyyy~ (ohhhh~)!
That's great to hear. Let's hope it's the latter. :D And keep up the great work.
I tested out the Beta 5 and while the game's scares are pretty nifty and the design is creative, you have a pretty significant isue with the game, namely the camera. The amount of shaking it does in perfectly calm moments is, and forgive me for sounding rude, abysmal. In the next update it would do the game some good to have much smoother camera control and reduce the shaking by at least 60% even in "scare sequences" as you can never even have a good look at the creepy stuff that happens in the house.
On a personal note, there were a lot of great moments in the game that really creeped me out, but as much as I love them I think the game is missing some sense of real danger. Can you actually lose? In my experience, I haven't ever really lost, and though it was all very creepy I never truly felt scared because there was never any real danger.
So basically that is my opinion on the game. Slight changes could earn this score a solid 9, maybe a 10, but at the moment I think there's a long way to go before it becomes as good as it deserves to be.
Great to see the team behind the upcoming zombie apocalypse is growing with people who know the stuff and are passionate about the authenticity of the craft of a survival game. Keep up the excellent work!
There's going to be a story available upon the full release of the game.
I'm having a problem. Every time I try to get into the open beta it always says on Desura that I don't have a CD key, nor does it permit me to attempt to enter the key I own. What should I do?
By the way, may you tell me where I can get the patch if not through Desura?
Thats a shame. I wanted to get into Desura but it seems that its entire list (at least from what I own) is a little slow on the update. I realize it must be difficult managing a platform but I cant help feeling disappointed. As for the game I toyed around with it an am extremely impressed! I can harldly wait for some NPC entities for singleplayer or coop play. Keep up the excellent work.
That's a relief. I bought it because I was excited to delve into the game but nobbody was online at the moment.
It says that this game is "Single player..." but from what I see it's a multiplayer shooter. Is there some sort of survival mode/AI?
I think the single greatest aspect of this game will be the human NPCs. Not so much their lines of dialogue (though it is great) but the natural reaction to and from the main character.
Honestly from what I'm seeing this may actually topple Day Z as a true survival horror.
I think you guys are being to critical.
I don't want to pin the blame on the audience of this game but when you think about it it's amazing the team is working on this at all. Especially considering that they are under no contractual obligation to even finish the game (they do have a bold face disclaimer before buying the game that the funding they earn will not place them under obligation to finish development). Most people would have upped and left at this point, realistically, after all.
Yeah I'd definitely like to see an update as well, preferably the co-op as soon as possible. But development isn't easy, especially when your only backer is your piggy bank and the project relies solely on a small team. Whatever cash they earn in the development of this project likely isn't covering the costs they have in other aspects of life.
