The Fifth Day
The Fifth Day Pre-Alpha Update 04 - New Enemies, Hacking, and Many Other Improvements!
June 13, 2014 - Touz

In an effort to post more frequent updates leading up to the games early access launch, here is all you need to know about Pre-Alpha Update 04!

  • Added new unique non-player characters (npcs) such as the "Swarm" and "Harvester", each new npc type is fitted with a unique behavior and interactions with its surroundings!
  • Added a system for hacking AI, allowing you to program them to follow your orders.
  • Added many exciting new zones to the environment, including the "Core", an area filled with dangerous AI and valuable loot left behind by the old world.
  • Added proper environmental effect transitions when entering underground areas (e.g. ambient noise dampening, lighting transition, etc.)
  • Added audio reverb to underground areas to produce more realistic echos and sound design in these zones.
  • Improved RFID tag system for locating and finding AI in the surrounding vicinity.
  • Improved multiplayer communications.
  • Fixed GUI not scaling properly to different resolutions and aspect ratios.
  • Fixed various issues related to time of day transitions.

@Indefatigable Thank you for your support, it is greatly appreciated :) however, I cannot give you an exact price at this time. All I can say is that it will be priced fairly as an indie release title.
