We are excited to announce that Estranged: Act II will be on Steam! We will be releasing Estranged: Act II into Early Access - for free!

Estranged: Act I was released in incremental “alphas” while it was being developed. This allowed us to regularly provide players with new content, and for players to continuously give feedback on the development process.

Early Access vastly simplifies the incremental update process, as it is a lot easier for us to release often. We no longer need to prepare and advertise large releases ahead of time, the process of pushing a new build to Steam takes a matter of minutes.

Once Early Access has finished, we plan to charge a nominal amount for the game – but this will be when we are satisfied it is complete. Estranged is (and has always been) a spare time project for everyone involved, alongside full-time work and education. We would love to get paid for what we do, but only if we make a fun game.

Anyone that downloads the game during the free Early Access period will keep the game in their library when it releases fully, paid-for or otherwise. If you are a part of the development process, you deserve to keep the game forever.

We will be using the Act II Steam forums as our primary means of communication, with transparent release notes and a public bug tracker to streamline the development process.

We will be putting the Early Access build live over the next few weeks. Thank you for being part of the Estranged project, we hope you’ll continue this journey with us!

Hi - yes, we did receive your feedback. In the current alpha you can tell it's sent because the feedback window will disappear. If there is a connection problem the window won't close itself.

Thanks for playing!

What about cheats? In act 1 were ordinary source sv_cheats 1, but here?

New engine. There certainly won't be cheats unless they deliberately put them in.

Hey, sorry to hear you're having that problem. You can try wiping the settings the game makes by heading to C:\Users\<your user>\AppData\Local\Insulam and deleting the "Saved" folder. If that doesn't help, let me know what hardware you're using :)

Apologies for the question, but what are the current keybindings? I figured out WASD and Space to jump, but the rest? There is no option in the main menu given for this, but since I have a Corsair K70, I can remap them myself.

Hey, there's currently no keybinding support in Alpha 1, purely because of how early into development it is. It has been requested by others though, so Alpha 2 or later will likely support it!

Using a re-programmable keyboard (Corsair K70) I can reassign my keys, if I know what they are. I have these so far:
WASD for movement
Spacebar to jump
F turns the flashlight on

Are there more? I can not figure what the "use" key is, or what key is assigned to "pick up" objects. I found a battery and a generator, but how do I pick up the battery and place it into the generator?

Apart from the keys I have listed, what are the rest of the current keybindings?

E is your use key in this game - escape exits interactive screens, CTRL for crouch. The scroll wheel on your mouse zooms when you're stood still.

This was an awesome mod. A few minor things like a crowbar on the ceiling, but i guess thats me not liking a slight challenge, i just spend like 20 mins chucking the rocks at the boards, enjoying the story so far and cant wait till a more complete story comes to light.

Keep up the good work and cant wait for the new weapons coming.

P.S. Im loving them Custom Barrels!
