Impact Winter: Steam Page Is Now Live
Release date: 2016
NOTE (30.11.16) - The information on this Greenlight page is outdated but we decided to leave it here for reference. Since its inception in 2014, the game has naturally evolved, and story elements have been updated.

    Become leader and provider as you guide a team of 4 survivors towards your story's conclusion. Utilize their unique skills and make key decisions as you work to stay alive.

    A harsh, winter environment that covers a derelict underworld. Witness dynamic weather conditions and time-of-day settings that directly affect gameplay and stats.

    Forge your own story. From solving team dilemmas to random events: your decisions will make each playthrough completely unique. Who will survive your adventure?

    Inspired by fictional droids like R2D2 and Wall-E, Ako-Light is your trusty robotic companion. Ako-Light's many functions can be used to explore the derelict world, and upgrades will improve functionality.

    Your team will get cold, hungry, tired and bored just like you. Dynamic, stat-driven behavior means each NPC character will react independently - with their own wants, needs and emotions.

'The Void' is a mysterious environment full of unexpected discoveries. From buried locations that house supplies and resources, to wandering nomads and wildlife. Players will have to contend with both the harsh outdoor weather conditions and the haunting interiors that lie deep below.

The world of Impact Winter has no barriers: a non-linear sandbox for you to explore however you choose. Dig for buried secrets, hunt wildlife at night, take shelter from fierce storms, investigate mysterious signals, set up camp during long expeditions, command your team back at the Church, trade with wandering nomads, upgrade your base - and much more.

Scavenging for supplies is a key part of the game, with Ako-Light's limited inventory creating some tough choices. It's a hostile, unforgiving environment where the smallest object can make the biggest difference. Impact Winter features hundreds of items across 7 categories: from 'Junk' (which can be used for fuel, or to craft new objects) to 'Electronics' (which can be used to repair and upgrade Ako-Light). You may even be lucky enough to find 'Trinkets': rare, collectable relics from the old world that will give your team a much-needed morale boost.

In Impact Winter, no two games are the same due to dynamic 'Story Events' that replace the traditional 'mission' structure.

These events can be completely random (wandering strangers'; kidnappings; Ako-Light malfunctions; strange illnesses) to scripted scenarios that are tied to certain conditions (storms damaging the Church; frostbite from over-exposure to the cold, getting lost in a 'Whiteout'; depressed team members going AWOL).

Story Events are designed to test your leadership skills - and because of their random, unpredictable nature - they will often require plans to be altered and actions to be prioritized.

Everybody's path to survival will be fraught with different challenges.

You take on the role of Jacob Solomon and it's your job - as leader - to help guide your team through the next 30 days. Each member will be a crucial asset by way of their unique skills. Crafting upgrades for the Church, repairing damage, creating food recipes, upgrading Ako-Light's features, healing sick teammates, arming traps, upgrading weapons - these are just some of the benefits of a fully-functional team.

Each team member will be governed by the same stat engine as you. They will get cold if the fire runs low, require food when hungry, get bored from working too much, become tired through lack of sleep - and even die!

Although NPC behavior will be fully-automated they will look to you for guidance and supplies with your actions directly affecting behavior and relationships.

Ako-Light is your robotic companion: a futuristic ally to help explore 'The Void'. Equipped with many features and gadgets, Ako-Light will carry your supplies, track your position on radar, alert you to secrets and keep you in contact with your team.

However, Ako-Light's battery is limited and its features must be used wisely. Once 'Power Save' mode is triggered, Ako-Light will be offline and Jacob will need to carry his companion back to base (taking valuable energy).

So far 141 hours used and still a hell of a lot to do, I read somewhere that the game can be finished in double figures, Nonsense! this game is well into 3 figures.
I still cannot find the BIRDTEC USB and CABLE TIES for Christophe's FIMWARE Lv1.1
Where the hell are they???????????

Any help appreciated.......

I would also like to point out a good few towers requiring Radio Batteries are proving NOT to be activated. Climbing to the point is fine, but fixing battery in place will not happen.
I still need climbing gloves.

I will post any troublesome bits as I find them...

What do you mean, co-op? This game isn't designed for co-op mode or multiplayer. Just a single player gameplay.

i need to know because this art and the whole look of the game is this like a wasteland ? idk i really want to know :D

This is one of the few games where a coop is not needed, but I'd appreciate it. A lot of games come out with awesome ideas, but never put a coop/mp into it, even though it fits the theme or maybe even has couch coop. But couch coop is dead. So please consider doing a coop mode. I will buy it day 1/preorder it. Looks like you put a lot of love into it.
