2017

News 2 comments

As 2017 draws to a close, I thought I’d round up some of the things that happened over the past year, and look ahead to what 2018 will bring.

Here are some interesting statistics from the past year:

  • Over 19,000 downloads on Steam
  • 262 Steam reviews (74% positive)
  • Nearly 200 Steam forum posts
  • Over 30 content updates (many more undocumented)
  • Over 300 builds (some are duds and don’t go live)
  • 2,829 commits in source control
  • Over 40 GB of content (raw levels, code, textures, models, sounds)
  • 18 development blog videos on YouTube

I am going to be posting more smaller morsels of news and screenshots on Twitter, so if you’d like to get smaller development updates follow me @AlanEdwardes and @EstrangedGame.

These will propagate into the update news posts on Steam, but if you want to get more detail from behind the scenes and development updates as they happen then Twitter is the place.

Looking Forwards

The next year is going to be a big year for Estranged: Act II, with the first content update of 2018 arriving very soon. There will be more action, story and awesome environments to experience in the next few months – the fisherman’s voyage is not yet complete!

Thank You

I touch on it every news post, but I want to thank every person reading this for being involved in the project – whether you’re waiting for the series to be complete, or you’re playing the content updates as they are released – thank you all.

Here’s to 2018!

A superior set of mods. Very nice level design, with a fairly strong story driving events. Looking forward to additional content on Act II.

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!

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 :)

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!
