Description
Release date: Q4 2016
Gearend is a small 2D non-linear exploration game in production. You control a small robot named Epsilon-98, or "Eps", as he explores an abandoned robotics research facility. Having been awoken by unknown forces, he sets out to find out who has awakened him, and determine just what exactly has happened to the facility and its inhabitants. Find and equip arm, leg, and core parts to help you fight, move, and navigate as you explore the sprawling remains of an advanced robotics research facility.

Gearend is being made solely by me, SolarLune, starting from around January 2016.

That's about it, I guess. Please upvote if you feel like it / think it's high enough quality. Please also feel free to ask questions about the game, and I'll try to answer them.

Thank you!

Thanks, everyone!
@HellCow - Thanks for the offer, but I'm good on testers. If people are interested, though, I'm taking requests for beta access - I'll post an announcement about it.

I know as a matter of fact that there are quite a few people out there who won't buy a game without steam achievements, and it really does increase the replay value and curb appeal of a game.

Achievements can make a game funner, I agree. I actually see achievements as a way to increase playability for my favorite games. They give me something to do, and for some, they may actually be more likely to buy it if it has achievements. I personally love collecting achievements. Definitely something to consider, but either way, I still like the way this game is looking, and I'm quite interested in it.

Hmm, well, I'll consider it after the game's finished.

It's already a lot to finish a good, fun game - achievements won't increase the review score and public perception of the game one iota.

Steam achievements please, there are a lot of good games out there, and steam achievements help games stand out from others...

Thanks again, everyone!

I think I want to keep things simple and just finish the game, rather than focusing on trading cards or achievements. Maybe future projects will have that kinda extra stuff, but I think if the game's good, then that should be enough to get people playing.

Please make steam trading cards and achieves!
