We're Entering Testing Phase!
  1. New Dialogue system with full character portraits.
  2. Crafting benches to make a number of cool items.
  3. Different grenades that add more tactics to combat.
  4. Simple cooking system to sizzle up raw meat.
  5. Use multitools on locked objects to get their goodies.
  6. Full custom quests system with 4 tasks per quest.
  7. Day/Night system, get tired, sleep, camp the night in the wastes.
  8. Explore a huge map with over 50 locations.

As you can see it's a lot to test and we expect a lot of typos due to the sheer amount of dialogue but we’ll get there and we’re on target for our rough release date (touch wood).

We’ll be making a new video trailer that shows off some of our cool new features and a developer blog video will be getting made to explaining some of these things in more detail :)

Again - we really appreciate all your votes and time in coming here, reading this stuff and looking at our screenshots. Time is precious and it means a lot to us both.

Release date: May, 2015

Hay man, I only just got your message on TIG Forums from April. XD I posted a link to your Steam Greenlight on my twitter account. I hope you get green lit.

How linear is the game? Is there much replayability?
But still, looks really good :-)

Woho, can't wait then ;)

Thanks for the great advice Serebix, the game will have a complete list of achievements and cards :)

Has great potential. One good advice before you finish it: Make it possible to implement achievments. Sounds not so important but when you have achievments (or cards/both) many more people will buy the game. Just saying, because I'll think it would help you guys a little :D
