MISERY 2.1 is here and with it the end of an era of compassionate modding.
The energy and drive that flood the development team on a daily basis is quite extraordinary.
MDT has evolved a love/hate relationship with the X-Ray engine and although the MISERY mod
can now be considered a completed modding project there will be more updates and extraordinary content to follow in future updates. We just love our Zone and modding projects that much.

Thank you all trackers, testers, gamers... Stalkers!
For the patience, the feedback, the emails, the love and the hatred.
All of this would never have seen the light of day without such a wonderful community to back us when times were rough and when we had to take a beating.

In celebration of this support we have now opened the MDT Testing Lab allowing everyone to utilize this forum as 'core testers' for any future tests, ideas and new content for the mod. So welcome all!

Having worked with MISERY on a daily basis for years now it is needless to say that we all would very much love to enter the gaming industry as professionals.
Such dream scenario does not simply fall from the sky so we decided to go all-in on a new standalone game project.

Misery Development Ltd. hereby proudly announces: The Seed
Story-driven post-apocalyptic video game set in Eastern Europe, 2026. Single-player 2D interactive novel deeply rooted in psychology.
The Seed is a game where choice matters. YOUR choice. The decisions you make in the novel will have far-reaching consequences affecting how the plot unfolds as
the Construct 2 engine is tracking everything you do to deliver a tailored game experience.

Story progression heavily under the influence of player choices and morale. The player will be able to travel solo or join a group of other survivors.
Conduct an outdoor hunting type of survival or roam the regions as a bandit scavenger.

Constituting such actual game development does not only involve financial investments but it is a real life bet with everything involved and lead MDT members have quit theirs jobs to be able to work full-time on this.

Revealing this project to you all here feels like sharing a new found zone artifact with our best friends. You are our main audience and we hope to have your thoughts and ideas shared as much as it has been the case with MISERY.
For that we have established several social media to be able to discuss apocalypse, survival, ethics and morale.

Join the debate on:
- Kickstarter
- Facebook
- Twitter
- VK

We hope that you will feel as passionate about this project as we do and we can't wait to share our development progression with our backers all along the way.
Please share the news with your friends to let them all know about The Seed.

See you all in Eastern Europe 2026
(Or around the corner on social media)

Thanks again and best regards
The MISERY Development Team

Story driven games aren't my favorites but if my situation allows before the close I will be backing at some level just because I really want to see this team continue to develop games. The quality and depth you all go after is something I definitely appreciate.

Any one more than me that can't download 2.1? It downloads a while, and then says "Finished", and you can't open the archive. Help, anyone?

I got that too - now I can't even start the download, getting a 404 File not found. Both update and full download. :(

Paddey Mar 18 2014 replied:

I see. Well, my theory is that the uploaded RAR is corrupt, and the download think it is completed, the developer noticed this and removed the file from the link. Hopefully it'll be up again soon with a proper file/download :)

At least nice to know that more than just me is having the problem

PerXX Mar 18 2014 replied:

Maybe they have a bandwidth limit and too many people already have downloaded the files :P
Hopefully a dev will fix/comment soon.

Congrats guys. I wish you the best of luck not just with this Misery release, but also with The Seed. It sounds like it will be an interesting game (I'm big into psychology, so it catches my interest).

I still wish the bodies didn't disappear so quickly/on quickload. Really starting to bother me with long/large firefights where you sometimes die but all the other bodies disappear so you just lose and lose and actually end up in negative credits once...

I'm fighting the mercs at the Waste Processing Station and once I had finally killed them all, after a long and very hard fight, I went back to loot corpses only to find they had already started to vanish.

I know because I went back to one that had a good artifact with a user container and the whole corpse was gone. Still pretty early and new to it so it's a major loss and don't even know what I lost on the other bodies that vanished.

That fight is really hard (unless maybe coming back for it later in the game with better gear would help but that defeats the purpose of a hard game), so trying to do this very hard fight while looting bodies is frankly, stupid.

Been searching for a way to increase the corpse body stay duration but haven't had any luck yet.

I've never have played CoP, but it started me with a very quick knife and some binoculars, and then I was insta shotted by some people in this huge base, and then killed by these crawling things. I finally avoided both and found a guy to take me to the airplanes and I'm already sent into this fire thingy.....did I do something wrong?
