DEAD IN WHAT?

We started the big adventure with Dead In Bermuda. From the start, we wanted to build a world where all the games in the series would fit. If you played DiB, you may have noticed... Strange... Things. With no real explanations. More explanations will come in DiV, which is not a direct sequel but shares the same base gameplay and backstory.

Each game is totally independant, you won't miss a thing if you haven't played DiB, but in the end you'll learn in each game more about a common thread that ties everything together.

Gameplay-wise, while keeping the same basic original gameplay we developed in DiB, DiV is a major improvement in nearly all aspects: More characters, more stories, deeper survival mechanics, more crafts, more to explore, more replayability... And other surprises!

ABOUT US

CCCP is a small french development studio. For a dozen years, we've kept on surviving by making educational games, but now we want to focus on making games that we'd like to play ourselves, especially MANAGEMENT and RPG games, with NARRATIVE elements. We want to make CHALLENGING and MEANINGFUL SOLO, PREMIUM games, where the player has to THINK and DISCOVER by himself.

Hello survivors, time to talk about the 1.3 Patch!

We’re approaching release time! Let’s talk about the content of the FREE 1.3 patch coming live at the same time as the second DLC of Dead In Vinland. We are slowly coming to the end of what we possibly could implement into the game, so this patch should be the last major one.

Honestly we totally went over the budget we had in the first place… but well, we wanted to go as far as we could with the concept of Dead In Vinland. We hope that in the end, it will have a lasting effect on sales and that the game will eventually reach balance, but that’s the subject of another blog post that I will make for the 1-year anniversary of the game’s release.

But yeah, when I look at what is the game now and how it was when we first release it… There has been quite an amount of major improvements that I’m really proud of. After the 3rd DLC is released, I think I’ll be able to call it complete!

But enough of that, let’s look at the features… There are actually 3 new major free features included in the 1.3 patch:

Advanced Difficulty Options

Okay… Let’s get to the REAL THING. Dead In Vinland has A TON of parameters running in the engine that we set up. We can’t possibly make it moddable since it was not something we anticipated from the start. BUT with this, you’ll really be able to tailor your experience how you see it.

We added not all but a lot of parameters that you can fiddle with, making your game extra hard or extra easy. We tried to give you the freedom to go very extreme in the parameters, so it’s very experimental: don’t complain if you set-up some crazy things ^^

We thought it worked well with a new endless game mode, but you can also use this to make the story mode easier or harder with the patch.

Patch Difficulty 01

With that, you will be able to:

  • Modify how the states increase/lower each time. You could for example play a game where the characters don’t get any Fatigue at all, but they get twice the amount of Injury and Disease.
  • Modify how the states impact the skills: you could make it so the characters’ states don’t lower the character skills, of have twice the impact.
  • Modify the random value affected to Acquired skills at generation: choose 0 to have less random, 100 to have crazy numbers.
  • Modify the number of bad starting Traits: you could start a game with 0 random starting Traits, making it fairer to every character.
  • Modify skills and general XP bonuses. You could make a game with skills that don’t evolve at all on each use, but you get twice the general XP, making it a game around level ups!
  • Modify the number of Level Up Traits you get to choose from each level-up. If the random factor of level-ups annoys you, you could set it up to 100 and get the choice to customize your character freely.
  • Change the resources gains, the crafting speed, the exploration speed.
  • Change how fast camp stations lose condition, and how fast Natural Resources lower and regenerate.
  • Remove the chance to have special Traits when using camp stations, or double the chance to get one, and change the value of “Depression Crits”.
  • Make the diseases more or less frequent, and make them harder or easier to heal.
  • Change the chances that each character will get Dehydrated each night (I personally advise setting it to 100% chances), and change the way water rationing works (yes, you can revert to the initial values that were a bit harsher than now)
  • Adjust the chances of food rotting overnight. You can make everything un-perishable ^^
  • For Heodening mode only: Modify the number of days you have to wait between Tributes, and the difficulty of Tributes amount asked.
  • Change the animosity gains. You could make an endless game by removing them completely.
  • The chances of getting fights. If you don’t like our battle system (and it makes us sad), you can remove the battles! (not recommended: battles are an important way to get loot!)
  • Give you a boost of chance to succeed skillchecks… You know, those nasty 3-in-a-row skillchecks you have to succeed in Rune challenges?
  • Some other parameters for Heodening mode: the delay between map resets, and the pace at which the battles will increase in difficulty.
  • And finally, one set of options that I’m particularly proud of: you can completely modify the probabilities each weather has to appear, depending of the current weather… Very cool! You could make an island where it constantly rains, or where there are no storms, etc… You’re a real god now!

Patch Difficulty 02

UI GoldenArrow Off

Intelligence Skill rework

This is directly a consequence of the new customization options of the Battle Of The Heodenings mode that we included in the 2nd DLC, and this is something I wanted to change for a while. The Intelligence skill didn’t have much use, apart for the skillchecks in exploration mode (luckily, we used a lot of Intelligence skillchecks, so it was not a wasted skill). Now that you can freely distribute your skillpoints at character creation, we couldn’t allow ourselves to have a sub-par skill like that, that could easily been overlooked to max-out other skills.

So! Now Intelligence will give a bonus/malus on skills XP gains. The more a character is Intelligent, the more they will learn from their experiences and the faster they will get better at doing their activities.

Patch Intelligence

Since skills level-ups give general XP, Intelligent characters will also tend to progress their levels faster, learning useful Traits along the way. So yeah, it’s definitively a skill that has some value in it, and that could lead to some interesting XP focused builds.

Stats screen in character sheet

Oooh… How I love this feature! To talk a bit about me, I have some kind of statistics fetish… When I see character statistics in a game, I can’t help but become instantly excited. I think I could buy a game just for a well-presented stat screen x)

I feel that many RPGs and tacticals are lacking a lot in character stats, that’s a shame because stats tell a lot of good stories that you can share and compare with other players.

So I pestered Raoul and Thomas (our programmers) day and night so that they would implement a nice little stat screen in Dead In Vinland. They accepted to implement a stat screen on game over to appease me, but now that we had this nice little stat screen, why not have it during a playthrough?! I whined, I yelled, I bribed… And now we have it! <3

Patch StatsScreen

Look at this beauty!

Now you can easily check that Lady Tomoe nearly died of Fatigue, so you should take care of her! Poor Lady… Doing all the work by herself while the others have fun in the Tavern… No wonder she always looks so grumpy.


Phew! That’s all! As you can see, you clearly can make the game less RNG prone, or more, depending on your setup. We hope you’ll have fun playing with all these settings!

It’s a bit of an “expert” mode, so if you find some good set-ups, don’t hesitate to share them with other players!
