And yet again - digital rewards reminder

Owls are not what they seem...
Owls are not what they seem...

Hello everyone! First thing goes first - as we move closer to the release with each day we can no longer afford waiting for backers to submit their preferences regarding in-game rewards including:

  • custom weapon ($350 tier and higher)
  • custom outfit ($700+)
  • custom avatar and skin ($1200+)
  • custom biography and name in memorial ($2000+)
  • custom legendary biography and monument with your name ($3000)

And of course if you have participated in Fallen of Object 6 initiative and still didn't send us the name you want to give to your personal lovely digital corpse - please do so as soon as possible. Drop us a line here in the comments section, send us a message via Kickstarter or support[at]insomnia-project.com (don't forget to replace [at] with @ before sending) - it's all good.  

We will distribute one last notification regarding this matter today, June 12th, and expect you to reply no later than June 18th. After that point we will be forced to create these rewards without your involvement as all this custom content has to be finished by the end of this month.

One of the latest things some of you were concerned with is the current status of our website that has been "under maintenance" for quite some time now. The reason why this is happening has nothing to do with the development progress. Internet can be a nasty place and sometimes web servers get infected with viruses which eventually happened with us as well.  

However there's nothing to worry about - no information is lost or leaked. Everything is safe and sound and it's just a matter of time it goes back online. Anyway we are truly sorry if this made/makes you feel uncomfortable or uncertain about the game status in any particular way.

You will never stop being surprised with things you find here

Next week we will also decide which publisher will suite our common needs the best which also means finally setting in stone the Steam EA launch, release date and all other things we all so eager to know about. So next update from us should led some light on this question and bring a number of long awaited information to digest.

If you still feel unsure about why exactly we would need a publisher and not just launch Steam EA right away, we recommend to refer to our lengthy comment we left for our previous update.

We are almost there, so stay tuned to our next update. Thank you everyone for support and patience!

Hello everyone! Previously we have already showed you some of the screenshots which demonstrated the start of actual game. Today we are making another step forward with the following video that will give you even better idea about the Steam EA content of InSomnia:

Among other things currently we are also finalizing the process of choosing the publisher who will help us bring InSomnia to the world in the best way possible. We will let you know about the results and all the great things that come with such partnership as soon as possible.

Until next time!

Getting ready for Steam EA

24 likes

Hello everyone! There was something quite a few of our backers asked about and we felt like we should start talking. Today we will give you a better idea of what InSomnia Steam EA access content will be and even show you a few new screenshots based on it.  

The Plot

You will have to face Ghetters, the poorest and most unfortunate inhabitants of Object 6. They are clearly not happy with how things turned out for them and the recent attacks by unidentified renegades didn't make it any easier.

You will be sent to one of the security posts to assist local authorities in keeping the situation with Ghetters under control, but will it be really the only problem you will have to deal with?

As you might have expected, obviously not. You are experiencing Somnia, a mysterious disease that can't be explained from the scientific point of view. Its symptoms include insanity and even genetic disorders in long perspective.

Somnia is a cancer of this world and usually puts an end to the social life of man here. Will you be able to deal with it, cure it or even use it for your own purposes? Time shall tell...

What we are doing now   

Other than working on the full game we continue to test Fighting Arena for Linux and Mac and it looks quite promising. We are still pretty much occupied with translation of all text contents of InSomnia (whooping 300k words) but we will do our best to minimize waiting time before you can get a considerable new playable chunk of gameplay.   

Until next time!

InSomnia status update

Hello everyone! It's February already and it's a high time to update you about our progress regarding completion of InSomnia and other closest plans of ours.

What we up to right now 

Currently we are finalizing all the dialogues, descriptions and names for English translation which is going to be a starting point for all other localisations. We are talking about 3.5 millions of characters here, so you can imagine how important it is to properly handle such an amount of text. After it's all done we will pass everything necessary to the translators so they could deliver this vital chunk of the game in a proper way.

Publishing matters

One other thing we've been working on for quite some time now is finding a partner who will help us with all the things we are not quite familiar with including distribution, additional localization to other languages, QA, bringing the game to Steam and other similar platforms, and basically everything else that is mandatory to satisfy our backers and make InSomnia as good as possible. 

We've already established quite a few promising connections with indie-friendly companies and now internally discussing what would be the best next step for InSomnia. This decision is to be made during February so it's quite possible you'll have an update on this next time we post news on Kickstarter.

Give us your best guess what this is

Fighting Arena

As you might have remembered we have promised to deliver the Linux and Mac version of this separate combat testing build. This is still a plan and we have a few people in our studio working on just that. Meanwhile the whole thing continues to get updated:

Digital rewards

And one last thing we wanted to talk about today: if you are eligible for a digital reward such as a custom weapon / NPC / outfit / avatar etc. and haven't contacted us yet regarding this matter - please hurry. One of the things we are doing right now is finalizing all this additional content for InSomnia, so please let us know your suggestions regarding these custom elements mentioned above. 

This also applies to everyone who took part in "Fallen of the Object 6" initiative and didn't provide us with the name they would want to be used for their own personal cute (or not) corpse on the board of mentioned spaceship.  

Talk to you soon, until next time!

Pre-New Year InSomnia update

Hello everyone! It's been a while since we last spoke, and knowing this is the last Friday of 2016 we will try to make this update worthy.

The final game will feature many nasty creatures to play with

To give you some more activity options during the weekend time we are offering you the latest build of InSomnia Fighting Arena, which includes many updates and fixes that represent the current combat system status of the whole game itself.  

With this new build we have put much effort into improving the close combat mechanics: all animations related to melee fighting and characters behaviour were reworked, while melee weapons were also rebalanced. This means that you will be able to experience a much more energetic and believable close combat system than we had before.

We have finalized all story content for the game

As usual we have also introduced different improvements regarding the interfaces and other less obvious elements of the game. So get your machine-gun from the locker and show them what you've got! The new build can be downloaded here (Windows version). We will finally publish Mac and Linux versions earlier next month as they still require some love before giving it to you.

Translation of all game text (~600k words) will start next month

We will come back shortly with new update and additional details regarding InSomnia progress in January, so stay tuned. Have a happy New Year everyone and thanks for all the support you showed us so far!
