Have a question?
It's September 2018.
Have not been around here for a while since the game really overshot the 2015 ETA
Just wondering what is the NEW ETA for the game ?
When this first started, this game clearly does show, and mentioned it was going to be a 3rd person, or semi top down.
Happy to hear that, Joshua! We will continue to update and improve the game till the release day (and continue to do so after too). Thanks for playing :)
I also thought it would be turned based isometric. However, assumptions are just that, assumptions. The game is pretty fun, and it does have that dark feel. It feels very Bioshock mixed with Blade Runner IMO. Looking forward to playing the heck out of this.
Not really sure we will be able to provide controller support on day one, however many people are asking about this so we may consider this in a post-release update.
Yeah, I guess I just assumed it would be turn-based-ish. No worries, though - it DOES feel quite nice to play, however I really hope for controller support? Wasd doesnt work well outside of shooters imho.
Also looking forward to actually understanding what I am putting in my backpack :D
Happy you liked it! Talking about the turned-based combat, I'm not really sure why you were expecting that as we never promised it. Sure, people usually expect turn based combats from isometric RPGs, I get it. However it clearly says "tactical real-time combat" and "real-time tactical gameplay" in the description of our Kickstaerter campaign.
Regarding the lack of isometric perspective - this happened when we switched to Unreal Engine 4 (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1892480689/insomnia-an-rpg-set-in-a-brutal-dieselpunk-univers/posts/939490), as we felt that isometric wouldn't be the best way to play the game.
Anyway, really hope you will like the current game feels and plays in the end!
Having played for an hour or two yesterday, it looks promising, and I was definitely intrigued enough to keep going. From the pictures in the Kickstarter, however, I was expecting an isometric RPG with tactical turn-based combat, which I am quite dissapointed it isn't.
The end of Summer / early September is our plan with beta tests in between.
Um so when is this game coming out? Do we have a date?
We just posted an update. Sorry it took so long!
You'd be surprised how dark this game is.
I am really hoping the game continues to have that dark feel I initially backed.
17th of May now..
Still no keys, nor any updates on progress.
It's hard to not be negative..
We will send them as soon as game is released. People whose pledges include beta access will have them earlier.
Where are our steam keys?
These are two different pledges. I'm sending you a personal message on Kickstarter for more details.
I'd really appreciate this being answered, Was the 'comrade' an option from the start? I am certain I would have backed at that level to get a copy for me and my close friend.
I backed as a 'Veteran' ($25) and my pledge says 'Play the game before anyone else. All previous rewards included along with the Veteran forum badge and in-game "Veteran" item set. Be heard!' but 'The Comrade' ($25 and up) offers two copies of the game, do I also get the rewards for The Comrade, as well?
We have everything ready to implement female character however we still need some time to adjust all the animations accordingly.
Is gender still selectable? I haven't seen anything about it since the original pitch.
It is a great game and it should become even better when we get your feedback. Thanks!
I hope it's any day now. Ready to play, what looks like a great game!
We are setting up a new Steam page right now so we will let everyone know about all other details shortly.
Going off one of your previous Comments "3. wait for a key/link to access the beta
Hope this helps!"
How's that coming along?
It's February now, still no Beta key sent out.(?)
Oh, yes, the link to Fight Arena build: http://demo.insomnia-project.com/Insomnia.BattleArena.1.14.zip
Thank you William!
1. you can download the InSomnia Prologue which is an updated demo: http://games.softpedia.com/get/Games-Demo/InSomnia.shtml
2. you can play Fight Arena which is a separate build for testing the combat system (we have introduced many changes since it was originally out)
3. wait for a key/link to access the beta
Hope this helps!
Keep up the good work. Looking forward to the release! Take your time and do it right.
Hey Studio MONO, just wanted to pop in and say hello. I'm still really glad I backed the game, and it looks like it's coming along great! Congratulations on getting close to release. Keep up the good work!
My question: is the build that is linked on the campaign page the one I should download, or am I waiting for a beta email with instructions on how to download that, when it's ready?
Sure it will. We have covered this topic in our latest update. We will be posting a new one asap as well.
sooo is this ever coming out? whats the latest estimate for a release date?

Thank you for your kind words! We are really up to doing what we have aimed for.
We try to be as vocal about what we do as it's possible. Even when news we are bringing to the table are not very exciting. There will be more news regarding the project this month so we will try to make you still remember about the game up till the moment when it's out ;).
We are very sorry you feel this way. Doing a game of such scale for the first time is quite a challenge, and it's very hard to predict how it all goes in the process. Really hope you will be surprised with the final result though.
Cobus, I agree they are very late. But if this is the most disappointing project you backed, you are either very lucky or more careful than I am ... ;) At least it looks like they will deliver something that is very similar to what they promised.
I never remember I even backed this until I get updates. And then I think "Wait, what was this?"
This is the most disappointing project I have ever backed
ETA was Dec 2015
I suppose there will be a video, as we are working on a launch trailer and other video content at the moment.

We will give the release dates this month as was promised.
2Vincent and All
We had no update in the August mainly because we want to give you the exact information about the release date etc which is still happening this month. In other news we continue to discuss technical issues regarding the release of the game with the publisher, perform localization to English and other languages, and also resolve various legal matters. Currently we are working on tuning last game levels, shooting videos for main and alternative game endings (very cool process on its own), and making the launch trailer along with intro video as well.
The whole game is being played from the beginning till the end time after time to find all possible bugs and faults, while we finish latest unique in-game contents promised to our backers. The biggest chunk of work we are concerned with currently is improving the animation system (close combat animations particularly). We will also have to add a few more foes and improve boss fights as well.
Come on guys, your killing us. New timelines need to be provided. We know your working on it, we know it's going to be good but we can't wait forever.
Any updates with the Steam EA of this going to be out?
Would it be possible to get some video in the next update? You guys have been talking about an early access release for a while, and we haven't seen the game in motion at all for even longer still. Some shots of the UI? Some sample dialog? Combat? Still screenshots are nice and all but it would be better if we could see what the actual game looks like now, even if it is still WIP.
We are working on at least some temporary solution regarding our website so backers would feel more secure about the project. Thank you for your offer though!
I'd love to help you fix and secure your website and social media. I like the project and would not charge much. I speak Russian.
Also I did get a scam redirect on facebook from clicking on your August 1 post on regarding changing your site url. I could not replicate it by clicking the second time.
Seems like our website has been a weak spot all this time. Just browsed through the server and removed all suspicious files and injections. Hope this helps.
Your web site listed on your facebook page was hacked and hijacked. It currently has one of those fake microsoft alert popups. You might want to check into that.
We will have some additional info published here on Kickstarter later this week.
Will this come out this year? That's is my question.
Other than everything else your tier includes Boxed game + 1downloadable copy of the game (unless you've pledged for additional downloadable copy via PayPal). Regarding the shipping dates, we should have a more precise info on that by the end of this month or at the beginning of the next one. Sorry for keeping you waiting!
I would just like to check that as an Archivarius pledger I will be getting the Boxed game + 2 downloadable copies as paid for???
When can i expect the Boxed game to be delivered?
Yes, it's online now: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1892480689/insomnia-an-rpg-set-in-a-brutal-dieselpunk-univers/posts/1908324
This week is almost over ... So there will be an update today?
Yep, this week is an update week. Sorry for the delay guys!
