[DEV DIARY 23] Progress Report
[DEV DIARY 22] Progress Report
Release date: 26/04/2014

Originally developed by one person (OldSnake) and using a custom made game engine, Dangerous Rays is a single player FPS game with some survival components inspired by the S.T.A.L.K.E.R* game series, where you play as a normal citizen that survived a nuclear disaster. After some years in your fallout shelter you need to get out because you start to run out of food. It is time to confront the new world and discover what happened and how the whole society is now changed.

Explore the huge procedurally generated world of the available "Free Roam" game mode to find food, water, guns and everything else you'll need in order to survive in this ruthless world.
A "Story" mode is being worked on and Mxthe who is the developer of the very popular "Underhell" source engine mod is the creative director of this single player story. This game mode will be released at the end of the year.

The game support extensive modding possibilities and a 3D world editor will be provided in September so players will be able to make their own stories for this game mode and share them with other players providing hours of bonus gameplay. Last but not least if the game is getting popular enough we might even add some coop mode at some point.

Dangerous Rays is currently available in early alpha access and we need your support to be able to continue the development and make a great game.

  • Dangerous Rays is not DayZ or any other existing survival game, in the future we aim to be a game similar to S.T.A.L.K.E.R (without being just a simple copy from it) with a more modern game engine and new gameplay mechanics. With the upcoming "Story" game mode directed by Mxthe, we will be trying to bring an engaging story and interesting things to do in the survival game genre.
  • Zombies are placeholders, they will be improved later in the development. Animals, mutants and humans will also appear in the future.
  • Our old Greenlight concept page and indieDB community showed us that players like our game, here are the statistics:

  • No we do not have a Kickstarter ! A lot of scam projects has been put there lately by inexperienced developers and it is a shame because it is now impacting good projects and the honest people behind it. We are not the kind of developer that say "Please give us 150 000$, our game will be awesome", even is Dangerous Rays is pre-alpha state for now we have released a playable game with long gameplay videos before asking any money and we have made a custom game engine for it, we want to show our commitment to this project.
