Devlog #11: End of the Year

Hello, everyone!
It's been a while since our last update. It has happened so much this year and we needed time to process everything, plan the next steps and set the development of Episode 1 in motion.

I hope you all had wonderful holidays. We'd like to share the Adventure Gamer's Christmas Greetings video, which we have been part of. Find us at 03:56, right after Double Fine!

Current Development

We are working on Episode 1: Threading right now and plan to have a roughly playable version in January. There will be new mechanics, like the Brute Force Hack. You'll have to find key words from a person's identity (e.g. through dialogues, e-mails, etc.) and feed it to the hacking program in order to generate the password. But also the Man-In-The-Middle method will be more complex, adding files that you can find during your explorations, which you then can use in the hacking game.

One Part of the Three-Dome Station of Episode 1. What secrets will you find?

The commands NETWORK and HARDWARE that have been teased in Episode 0 will now have functions. You will be able to move through the network and access computers and their hardware, like for example a microphone or a printer.

The story continues, as you find yourself stranded on Mars trying to install an anti-virus before Code 7 reaches Earth. Team up with Zoya to reach your goal and struggle to solve a conflict that takes over the station and catches everyone by surprise. There will be choices that you'll have to make!

Kickstarter Rewards

We have also send out the first rewards to our backers, namely the soundtrack / song of Episode 0 and the developer channel access, which nobody has claimed so far, so please do so! You find the access link in our Kickstarter message to you :)

The rest of the rewards will follow in April, because we have to produce them first. We're working hard to make everything on time!!

Player Feedback

Your opinion matters!

In case you have missed it: We're doing a survey to find out who our players are and what you all like about Episode 0, so we can make the next one even better. If you have played Episode 0 and didn't fill out the feedback form yet, please do so. You'd help us a lot and it takes only a couple of minutes.

Find the survey here!

Upcoming events

Next year will start very promising. We'll be showing Code 7 at the Casual Connect Europe in Berlin, which will take place February 7-9 2017. Hope to see you there!
Additionally, if all goes well, we'll be able to show parts of Episode 1 at the Pax East in March.

Thank you for reading! What parts of Episode 1 are you looking forward to most? Will you be at one of the events? Feel free to answer in the comment section!

Zein & Kevin
