First off, allow us to apologize for our prolonged absence - we've had much to contend with and it's been a very exciting (and sometimes turbulent) year for us.

However, we are happy to announce the launch of a devblog for our new game, BEACON, a sci-fi action roguelike coming to PC. We know this might not be your cup of tea as it is very different from Black Snow, but give us a chance to impress you. And if it happens to be right down your alley, then by all means follow us along the development of the game and chime in to give your feedback as we create the product together!

Follow the development of the game alongside us here at our devblog. If you are curious about who "we" are, check out our website.

Thank you! And yes, The Thing has been a big influence on this project along with several other movies.

There are some but The Thing is the biggest influence, Sunshine and Alien are also big inspirations of mine as well as the Silent Hill game series (excluding the newer ones).

Sorry guys but this might be looking to be more early November than on Halloween, my PC just gave up and I've been waiting for a replacement which won't arrive until Tuesday, kinda delayed my plans a bit.

Playing it on halloween must have been more special, but for me early November is okay too. It's even better if you ask me so I don't have to miss the awesome Halloween parties.

Anyways, good luck ;)

Yep, I will definitely be releasing this in Nov not Oct - sadly there are too many things that needed more time to polish.

"Hm, looks nice. The mapping is good and the style looks pretty familiar...wait...Kremator is working on this game? HOLYFUCKAWESOMEOMGYES!"

Pretty much my reaction, though maybe you guys could help me out a bit because my heart (and some other unidentifiable organs) seems to have been exploded out of pure awesomness. Maybe you could promise me to release Canvas before 2089 to ease the pain :D

Just kidding, now go and make us proud :-)

Can't wait, I'm so estatic and pumped up for this. Hmmm Multiplayer mode might be nice? Called Deception where 1 person starts out as "The Thing" but no one knows who and gets other people who barricade and hide and have to scavange for weapons. You did say it was based of The Thing, but I'm not sure how much.

I certainly appreciate your enthusiasm lol - I don't think I can attempt an MP mode by myself as I don't code that well. While it is inspired by The Thing it is not a replica so the game won't be exactly the same as the movie.

Black Snow NAILS atmosphere and makes you feel vulnerable and alone. As a part of a rescue team dispatched to a research complex in the middle of the tundra. You end up separated, chased and all but you remain. With dark hallways and the ominous presence of something unknown lurking in the shadows and no way to defend yourself, the true sense of making you feel afraid is done right. You must avoid a darkness out to kill you by using light, and solve many puzzles that will test your ability to think…

The mod started off well enough, you got tension and mystery. You had to explore well and it gave you a indication of what you can pick up. The annoyance starts with this arbitrary light switching that makes zero sense why it changes like that, and if your left in the dark you end up being chased around and stuck inside a room with that thing right outside, forcing you to reload without a chance. It moves really fast so you end up dying without a fighting chance as soon as you make a mistake. Then…
