New trailer and first beta test
First closed beta test

If you are one of our original Kickstarter supporters you should already know that we will launch our first beta test on May 31st. This will be a time-limited event for backers only. However, if you are not one of them - stay tuned! We will let you know about opportunities to get acquainted with the early version of the game as soon as possible.

Add INSOMNIA to your wish list now and get the latest updates. If you have any questions or feedback, let us know!

New Steam page & publisher announcement
  • Negotiations with Steam. Most of you are probably aware that Valve had shut down Steam Greenlight some time ago, which means the rules of getting the game out to the world have changed. We still consider Steam as the starting point for INSOMNIA’s release and it’s very important for us to make this process as smooth as possible. This is where HeroCraft steps in with all of their experience and connections with Valve. Succeeding in this area means securing additional funds for the studio and keeping all of the developers working on the game.

  • Localization assistance. Unfortunately localization turned out to be the weakest point of the project which resulted in our beta-test being postponed. Finally, thanks to HeroCraft, we are able to boost this process.

  • QA and Technical support. Currently our team consists of 12 developers and each one of them is constantly occupied with improving Insomnia in every possible way. This means we will not be able to collect and process all of the feedback related to technical issues by ourselves. HeroCraft’s QA department will collect user feedback, carry out internal testing and report on these issues in a timely manner. This should allow us to fix as many bugs as humanly possible before launch.

  • Press outreach. As a publisher HeroCraft will assist with proper media coverage for Insomnia and help drive more attention of the gaming community to the game. Which is always a good thing ;).
Another long-overdue issue that HeroCraft will help solve is the game’s website, which is in dire need of getting a facelift.

Stay tuned: next stop – beta test!

Description
Release date: 2018 (TBA)
About the game

InSomnia RPG is a severe, ascetic world inhabited by the descendants of a once great nation that has left its planet when it was agonizing in the flames of war. The action takes place on a colossal, half-abandoned space station that has spent the last four hundred years travelling through the void towards the mysterious Evacuation Point.

The long years spent in the stern conditions have defined the character of the society built by the exiles among the rusty iron barrens. The station’s dwellers live according to the strict laws and obey the implacable doctrine of Order, the aim of which is to maintain the unity of the Nomah Nation till the moment when the settlers would set foot on an inhabitable planet and start their history anew.

Main Features:
  • An RPG in a dark, retrofuturist style - The action takes place on a colossal, half-abandoned space station that has spent the last four hundred years travelling through the void towards the mysterious Evacuation Point. Your character will wander through deserted tunnels and moss-covered shafts of long-uninhabited sectors; you shall visit the “space megalopolis” with rusty monuments full of echoes of the perished culture of Nomah; you will have to be on your guard in the slums of reservations whose dwellers eagerly exchange a stranger’s life for a handful of cartridges. The game’s oozy dark ambient soundtrack will help you to immerse completely in the atmosphere of this severe world.

  • Explore and survive - Innumerable secrets of the past are buried under the piles of debris in the abandoned sectors of the steel ark. Explore remote areas, but try to stay alive, for Object 6 reacts severely to those who attempt to disturb its centuries-old drowse. Hunger and thirst, fatigue and lack of essential resources, traumas and hostile environments will be as dangerous as the horrible beasts hiding in the dark of the tunnels of metal.

  • Character development and customization - Develop your character through his interaction with the environment, such as talking with NPCs or real-time tactical fights in single-player and cooperative scenarios. Deep character and item customization system helps to create not just a hero with a unique set of properties, but a living character who has his own story and temper.

  • Open world and random encounters and missions generation system - It’s up to you to decide where to go and what to do. The random events and missions generation system adds surprise to the gameplay, making the gamer’s experience unique every time when you can’t predict who, or what, is waiting for you behind the corridor’s turn.

  • Non-linear, multi-layered storyline - InSomnia RPG is all about branched dialogues, numerous tasks, a complex system of relations with characters and factions, points of no return, and having to make complicate decisions fraught with irreversible consequences in the game’s world.

  • Realistic melee and ranged combat system - The game features unique mechanics of both close and ranged combat. Every armor or weapon type has its own tactical virtues and shortcomings. The multi-level damage and wounds system, as well as destroyable covers, supplement the events with brutal realism.

Been waiting for this one for a while, I'm happy it will arrive soon :) Do you guys have any tentative release date in mind (just something to give us a broad idea, not a deadline you absolutely must obey, we know delays happen)? Could it be on steam in the next month or two or it will most likely take longer?

Sure, no problem. When I mentioned updates on Steam I meant the ones we post over here:

@samasta - Thank you for your quick response. I am relieved to hear that the Beta release is coming. I look forward to providing feedback and bug reports as necessary.
As to updates here on Steam. I'm looking down the page, and I cannot see any updates since your post 6 July "We will post an update here this month with all latest info, dates etc". This was why I asked the question.
No doubt your main website will cater for all these things, once it's up and running.I look forward to it.

The closed beta test for everyone who is eligible to have an access to it will start later this month. New trailer, publisher's name and release date announcement will follow shortly. You can find all the updates either on Kickstarter or here (we post them everywhere), and since July there were plenty of those.

@samasta - My questions to you are, as this Page's "Author":
=Do you have any direct link to this game's development, or with the Dev Team?
=What happened to the update promised in July?
I've pre-purchased this game in good faith. As have 1,697 other backers.
Contributions for the SECOND Kickstarter's went well over the goal of £55,000 (US$130,000).
I noticed you've spent 316.1 hours over the past 2 weeks on STEAM. Playing games or working?
=Is this game Vaporware?
