Welcome to Darkout – Stage 1
What is stage 1?

Thanks to everyone’s feedback and a year of Beta the game is finally in a place which we can consider the base version of Darkout, Stage 1.

From this point on we will expand on the universe, Biomes, Gameplay, Items, etc.

We currently have 3 more Key stages planned and will reveal all the details of these plans as we develop the game further, not unlike our predecessors in the Sandbox genre.

In-between the stages we will also have some mini updates as needed :)

Stage 2 – 4 will contain
  • More Story
  • Why are you here and what is really going on? All this will be revealed as Each stage contains a new act for the storyline
  • More Biomes
  • Underwater Biome, Sky Base, Feral Jungle, etc
  • An End Game
  • Fix the Ship or Illuna? Only time will tell
  • More enemies
  • The Penguin Drones
  • More bosses with each Stage
  • Survivors
  • Dead, alive, evil, good?
  • Underground Bunkers / Labs
  • Unique treasures, enemies, stories
  • Vehicles
  • Sub, Mech, and?
  • Weapons, Devices, rewards, achievements, etc!

I was actually thinking about the fact if you found the end boss and battled it would be nice to eventually able to build a ship and jump to another planet and cleanse that world out aswell, so to say that a game can go on even longer :)

Are stages 2-4 included in the price for the current game or are they something you have to buy separately?
Allgraf  [developer] Dec 5, 2013 @ 2:45pm 
All stages are included in the initial purchase price :)

Is this different than early access?

Are you going to implement hunger and cooking? And probably farming/herding? It would be awesome to be able to grow stuff. I really like role of the lightining in this game, maybe you can implement this for growing stuff too (like specific lightning conditions for plants?)

And yeah, so far I like this game very very much. Keep up a good work ^_^

First of all I will say this looks absolutely stunning, I really love the art style. Will be grabbing a copy tonight. One question. Will the next stages require a character reset/restart. Just wondering.
Look forward to trying it later
Allgraf  [developer] Dec 8, 2013 @ 1:55am 
The next stages won't require a character restart, but when we move over to the new world coding database currently being written with MP you will need to make a new world
