November Update

Hello backers! It’s Stephen from Nightdive with this month’s update.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀  

This is going to be more “show” than “tell” as we’ve been incredibly busy creating final art, implementing new systems, gameplay mechanics, character pipeline and wrapping up the work we’ve done on the Adventure Alpha.  

Here’s an early look at a walk cycle and some experiments with Unreal’s built-in ragdoll physics system.

 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We can also use the ragdoll system to help place corpses in a believable manner, like this deceased mutant slumped against some crates.

 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Next, let’s have a look at some environment concepts for the upcoming levels.

 ⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀

Some of you may notice a prop/enemy that was cut from the original game in this next image ;)

  ⠀⠀⠀

  ⠀⠀⠀

This room would act as a relaxation/meditation room offering a facade of Earth while surrounded by (now) overgrown vegetation.  

Jonathan continues to apply the original textures to the BSP levels:

  ⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀

Finally, we’d like to welcome Tom R. to the team! Tom will be helping out on final environment pieces like this tile that was lovingly interpreted from the original seen here:

 ⠀⠀⠀

  ⠀⠀⠀

That’s it for this update! If you’re part of the Cyborg Elite tier be on the lookout for an email with an invite into the Adventure Alpha!

Hello backers! It’s Stephen from Nightdive with this month’s update.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We launched the Adventure last week to the first round of backers and so far the reception has been extremely positive! Our dedicated group of Adventurers helped us track down a number of issues such as malfunctioning doors, missing key cards, holes in the geometry that lead to the infinite void of space, etc! We’ve been hard at work patching up the issues and will be pushing a new build today and will be selecting more backers to join in! If you’re part of the Cortex Reaver or Citadel Crew Member tiers look out for an email with an invite into the Alpha!

Here’s a quick video showing the current state of the Alpha: https://youtu.be/TvzXqhh_ktQ

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

General Update:

As for a general update...we’ve got...you guessed it! MORE DOORS! Check out this energy grating (fancy space door) concepted by Robb Waters and the final working model in game:

 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

How about this Ying Yang Executive portal (another door)?

We love doors!!
We love doors!!

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Here it is in action!
Here it is in action!

 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Jonathan is wrapping up applying the original textures to the BSP levels and we have some more before and after shots to share!

 ⠀⠀⠀

 ⠀⠀⠀

 ⠀⠀⠀

 ⠀⠀⠀

 ⠀⠀⠀

 ⠀⠀⠀

We also have some new art for the Repulsor Lifts that should really raise your spirits.

  ⠀⠀⠀

That’s it for this update! If you’re part of the Cortex Reaver or Citadel Crew Member tiers look out for an email with an invite into the Alpha! Have a great weekend everyone!

September Update

116 likes
Hello backers! It’s Stephen from Nightdive with this month’s update.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We are busy at work getting the Adventure Alpha ready for the end of the month - a ton of final art will be making it into the game as well as the majority of levels using the updated original textures from System Shock.

So let’s get started! What update wouldn’t be complete without doors! Yes, doors - we hope you never tire of going through these majestic contraptions that connect the various spaces you will traverse while on Citadel Station!

 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We’ve made the audio logs tintable to provide some variation between the crew members.

Now let’s take a look at the updated SS1 textures within Unreal - again, these are not final, they are the original game textures updated with PBR properties! However, due to the positive feedback we received we will be using these textures for a “Retro Mode” that you’ll be able to access in the final release. Should this be a mode you have to unlock or should it be available from the offset? Please share your opinion with us in our Discord channel.

  ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

 Here’s a comparison with the original game.

 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Next up we have two previews of some work in progress art for the UI - these are just ideas, but we wanted to share them with you.

 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Concept for how emails/logs will be received.

Oh, hi Mark!

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

August Update

Hello backers! It’s Stephen from Nightdive with this month’s update.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This update is going to brief as we enter into the final stages of our “Adventure Alpha” milestone

We also have some exciting news to share - During Daniels stream the final BSP was carved out for the medical deck and the block-out was completed! System Shock is a massive game and now that the entirety of the original map has been translated into UE4 the real fun can begin!

While Daniel finished the blockout Jonathan has been busy placing the original (albeit updated) SS1 textures. Here are some comparisons with the original game.

 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I want to stress that these are the original textures and not the final art!

We also have a new artist joining our ranks! Please welcome Mathilde to our team - she’ll be helping populate Citadel Station with tile sets and props! Here’s her latest work:

 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Here’s an update on the elevator door in-engine - it’s looking certifiably cyberpunk :)

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

System Shock: Enhanced Edition Update!  

We had a slight delay with the final release of the source port - we wanted to ship with full support for English, French and German languages and localization took a bit longer than we anticipated. We also want to include new Achievements for the Steam version - got any fun ideas for achievements? Tag Daniel on Discord with your idea!

Our current launch date is September 1st!  

If you still haven’t checked it out you can still opt in to the Beta on Steam!

You can opt-in to product betas by right clicking the System Shock: Enhanced Edition in your Steam Library and choosing "Properties". Next, from the properties window select the tab titled "Betas". From this page select the “SOURCE PORT” beta from the drop-down menu.

Forsaken Remastered!

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Our core Nightdive team, the developers that brought back Turok and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, are pleased to announce that Forsaken Remastered will be available for purchase on Steam, GOG, Humble, and Xbox One!

 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Developed by Probe Entertainment and Iguana Entertainment and first released in 1998 for PlayStation, PC and Nintendo 64, Forsaken was a vision of a dystopian future where science has gone out of control. Scavengers from all over the known worlds have come to Earth to loot the remains of the technology that can found in underground tunnels. But beware! You must fight your way past automated defenses and the scum of the universe to find the treasures hidden on each level.

July Update

125 likes

Hello backers! It’s Stephen from Nightdive with this month’s update.

We’re busy reaching our September milestone which we’ve dubbed the, “Adventure Alpha” as it will be reminiscent of the original game with the difficulty set to zero. You’ll be able to freely traverse Citadel Station without the presence of enemies, pick up items, listen to audio logs, read emails and complete the game’s objectives from start to finish.

We were expecting to have all the levels blocked out by September, but with no other details...however, Jonathan has been able to apply the textures from System Shock to Daniel’s BSP giving us an insightful look into the original game. The textures have been modified to take advantage of PBR rendering and lighting placed to mimic the original. Here’s a first look…

This is what we were expecting to deliver in September:

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 

It’ll be a bit more like this now…

  ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Keep in mind these are the original textures and not the final art! Not only will it make the Adventure Alpha more interesting but it will provide the team with a blueprint of how to approach updated art, lighting, level design, etc.

Besides that we’ve got a few assets and screens to share!

  ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Robb has been working very hard on re-conceptualizing and revisiting some of the common items and elements on board the station. Objects such as doors, lifts, and items like the dermal patches are all seeing new iterations.

System Shock: ReWired!

@the_3RDplayer has been very busy! If you can’t get enough Shock be sure to check out his mod, System Shock: ReWired

System Shock: Rewired is the very first full fan made singleplayer campaign for the original System Shock in over 24 years! 3 brand new levels with branching paths, 4 new cyberspace sections, new puzzles, new audiologs (currently text only), new on-screen text and so much more awaits in the now dark corridors of the hospital ship UNN Bismarck. Playable with all existing versions of System Shock (Enhanced Edition recommended). What are you waiting for?

SHODAN waits for your return! And she is eager to end your - in her opinion - useless existence.
