Oasis 1.1 is released!

By the Yods!
 
After a preview version has been released over torrent yesterday, we are happy to announce that the official release is now ready as well. Some of the bugs that have been reported in the torrent version were already fixed. So if you got this torrent version then try out this patch. You may also want to check out one of the first reviews of Oasis 1.1.

Now go download Oasis 1.1 and have fun ;-)

I played the tech demo and I have a LOT of suggestions. I would like to find a place to post them such as your forum or your survay. The game has a lot of good elements to it, it just needs a bit of reworking. I have a few major logical complaints that I think all players suffer from, and I'm not saying this because "I think that what ever I hate must suck" as most gamers who suggest things do.

Simply incredible work people ! :) Keep it up !!! :)

a few notes for improvements through ! :

1-Animations for cutter and npc's need improving(especially while standing still,stopping from running/turning etc..,need to become more flued and complex)

2-Facial expressions on characters

3-I LOVED the rear over the shoulder cam while npc's speak ! -But i HATED the generic camera circling around you and the npc....(Maybe show an over the shoulder side view of cutter when he is talking or something similar...)

4-Some volumetric sand dust while on the sanddunes and a more pronounced kicked up sand while running over them.(Also is it possible to have some distortion while on sanddunes over the sand that is far away ? For example like the heat distortion in crysis while an explotion takes place-it would be amazing coupled with the fantastic music ! )

5-More random stuff in villages are needed to bring life to the game (from generic things like ceramics,carpets,foods,stools etc..)

6-I would ABSOLUTELY LOVE starting from the snowy village Outcast started !!!

7-AND I HOPE i don't offend the guy that did the cutter voice overs...but he sounds emm...to good...too young....Maybe someone older with a rougher voice ? Cutter is supposed to be the rough,tough no nonsense hero ....:)

1. It's on the list :)
2. It's on the list, as well :)
3. Not a big fan of this either. It should be used with great caution. Thanks for your input!
4. We'll look into this.
5. This is a major part of Outcast, and we'll definitely improve in this area.
6. If included at all, it would be for the final game, not the tech demo :)
7. This is a tricky one. Try to find someone who works for free, is american, have professional recording equipment, is a good actor, a great team member and of the right age. We found a guy that was all this, except for the age-part. We're pleased with him, but are open for applications if you know someone who does it all ;)

Awesome work, Outcasts!!! :)

I have too a few suggestions for future improving:

1) NPC animations, facial expressions.

2) Optional First person camera? At least for narrow places like inside houses, etc. For large outside enviroments the third person is perfect.

3) Adjustable FOV in the menu configuration options. Like resolutions or v-sync. I think tha a FOV slider with values between 70 and 100 should be a standar on today games.

4) More detailed textures on distanced objects/lands.

5) This is a bit hard,I know, It's posible to implement OpenAL sound?

6) More news from this project soon!!!! ;)

Good luck, and congratulations for the awesome work.

Edit I've found the cutter voice awesome, maybe too young, but awesome anyway.
