We have been covered by webtrek.it gaming press site at the last Svilupparty!
A sneak peek to our upcoming new graphics
Description
Release date: Late 2017
Hard Times is an extreme urban survival game where you have to put yourself into the shoes of a homeless man, taking on all the challenges that daily survival places in the great metropolis of indifference.

MAIN FEATURES

-- Scavenge through junk to gather resources but beware of cops, citzens and garbage collectors

-- Beg for money or try to pickpocket passers by

-- Squat abandoned buildings or join an homeless camp or sleep wherever you want with just a cardboard or make your base in the sewers

-- Crafting system, create and recycle object and resources

-- Hunger, illnesses, rain, snow and cold will make your life even harder

-- Loot shops, steal, create fake subway tickets, sell weed

-- Cultivate your plants to grow your food or your weed

-- Craft your fishing equipment and go fishing in the city ponds or sewage streams

-- Craft any kind of furnitures, working benchs, chemical labs, kitchens, sewing tables and much more

-- Collect magazines to learn how to craft any sort of things

-- Get a music hi-fi to listen to real punk bands. Recover stamina.

-- Even more features to come!!

You will have to look into junk, beg for money, escape corrupt policemen and maniacs of decency. You will feel hunger and cold. You will suffer in the long rainy nights and be glad when you can get a decent meal.

You will have to learn to build your own tools by yourself, craft and recycle objects to gain resources. You will make artifacts of all kinds, including furniture, work benchs, kitchens, beds, cardboard boxes, storage containers for your little treasures and much more.

You will probably have to give up your innocence to survive. Small thefts and looting will become a gesture of self-preservation, beyond any moral judgment. You will know the thrill of introducing into an abandoned property to take possession of it.

You can choose whether to become a squatter and build your base in the city, live in a homeless camp or move your stuff daily with a cart to sleep every night in a different place.

You will be hunting for rats and fishing radioactive fish to cook them in the live fire of an old rusty bin. You will contract illnesses, use drugs and experience on your skin as cold and indifferent the great metropolis can be for those who live Hard Times.

We are still in an ALPHA stage of development. We are working very hard to meet our roadmap wich will bring in the next future:
# Complete graphics improvement, we are redrawing everything thanks to our new graphic designer
# Story mode: follow the story of our hero as he strives to survive in a indifferent city
# Full english translation. Our current english translation it's still a work in progress, for testing purposes!
# Add lots of new features, things to be crafted, illnesses, coltivation crops and lots of more stuff.


We plan to release the finished game on late 2017.
Stay tuned for more infos and updates!!

Happy Hard Times to everybody and thanks for your support!!

Ciao Davide, grazie per gli auguri, nonostante tutte le critiche! Abbiamo ritenuto che promuovere il nostro gioco sui gruppi fb dedicati a greenlight non fosse disonesto. Del resto a votare su greenlight ci erano rimasti quasi solo gli sviluppatori. Detto questo quasi tutte le persone che ci hanno votato sono state persone con cui abbiamo avuto modo di interagire direttamente nei gruppi e nei tantissimi forum e community nei quali abbiamo fatto promozione. Tutto il supporto ricevuto ci è stato dato da individui che hanno davvero apprezzato il concept del nostro gioco. Così come non sono mancati tanti detrattori. Ci dispiace, pertanto, leggere le tue critiche. Nondimeno le accettiamo e ne faremo oggetto di discussione interna per valutare in quale maniera sarà possibile usarle in maniera costruttiva, nel futuro nostro e del nostro gioco. Un saluto quindi e, speriamo che, quando Hard Times verrà rilasciato, si dimostri un prodotto all'altezza e di tuo gradimento. Ciao!

Beh, alla fine ce l'avete fatta, e magari quei mezzucci neppure erano necessari. In bocca al lupo, anche se non tratterrò il respiro per voi.

Mi spiace constatare come vi stiate prestando allo scambio di voti fra sviluppatori in queste ultime ore. Per quanto sia una pratica non proibita, falsa la percezione dell'interesse che esiste realmente per un progetto, a favore anche di alcuni oggettivamente discutibili, e a sfavore di chi ha l'onestà di non ricorrere a questi mezzucci pur di avere degli upvote. Colpisce anche la mancanza di discrezione che come gli altri mostrate in questa pratica, con file di mini-commenti positivi, senza fantasia, che non passano inosservati.
