It's finally time to release on Steam!

We are proud to announce that 'Darkout Stage 1' will be released on Steam the 4th of December. Those keeping up with the press and our social pages probably know that part already, but here are some more details below.


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
o 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
o Underwater Biome, Sky Base, Feral Jungle, etc

An End Game
o Fix the Ship or Illuna? Only time will tell

More enemies
o The Penguin Drones

o More bosses with each Stage

o Dead, alive, evil, good?

Underground Bunkers / Labs
o Unique treasures, enemies, stories

o Sub, Mech, and?

o Weapons, Devices, rewards, achievements, etc!

o Alpha/Beta in Stage 2

o Beta to Completion in Stage 3

Since our last Open Beta update we have implemented quite a host of new features including

  • The Big Boss!
  • o Includes some new music!
  • Backwards movement while firing weapons
  • Elevators
  • Completely new story line (ACT-1) for the game, which can be followed at your own leisure, as an extra feature for those who like to immerse themselves in the world of Darkout even more.
  • Voice-overs for the story!
  • By popular community request we have added a completely new playable Male character to the game as well as various different start-up color choices for both characters. These will come into play even more in future when we delve into the different casts and positions of service in the old world of Illuna that came before the age of Darkout
  • And a brand new Intro movie!
  • Achievements! We track everything!
  • o How many trees did you cut down, iron did you find, enemies did you kill, etc
We have also taken all the Preview and player feedback from the last patch and done a complete polish/refinement pass on our interface and overall gameplay experience. This also includes…
  • Tweaking the light penetration into the ground for easier mining and exploration on the surface and City. Below ground portable lights are your only salvation.
  • Click and Hold mining and block placement
  • Device placement directly from the inventory
  • Removal of the Shift key when interacting with devices (doors, trapdoors, etc.)
  • Gamma setting! (we know it’s dark)
  • Overhauled UI
  • New AI for ALL enemies
  • Tweaked Light Dark Mechanic for enemies
  • Completely new Item Database system for improved performance with crafting, storage and containers.

We'll keep you updated on all the developments and want to thank everyone for helping us get here!

Hey Darkout fans!

We know you are all patiently, and some not so patiently, waiting for the next update since we were Greenlit.

First off we want to thank everyone who helped us achieve Greenlit status, we truly are still dazed by the news and have been working our asses of to polish the game that is already there, as well as add more content.

The team is hard at work on updating/refining the Single Player game, and also creating the Multiplayer version, but as with anything that needs to be done right, it takes time. So what’s its current status and what still needs doing you may wonder?

Check out the rest of the article on our website for more info! :)

Team Darkout!
