Wait, what is Fighting Arena? 

If this is the first time you hear about this, you should probably read this update first. This article is all about what we are trying to achieve with this stand alone build, testing suggestions, and it also features a quick reference to controls. 

Give me download link, now! 

Sure, sure, here you go (Windows only). No 4shared links this time as they proved to be not very user friendly. Let us know if you will have any troubles downloading from this source, and we will provide you with an alternative one. 

 We will be grateful for any kind of feedback as this will help us improve combat mechanics for the final version of InSomnia

 Until next time!

      The link seems to be down.

      Yes and yes: there will be means of setting traps for your enemies, and we will give you an opportunity to test crafting before the game is released.

      Yup, that's what I get for jumping the gun. First thing I did was go in and see traits were unavailable XD. I like the new aiming system, my main issue is just the balance of accuracy (Which I assume we can upgrade/augment in the full game). While I was playing this round, I got thinking. For players like me who favor long range tactics, will there be a way to hinder enemies trying to close in on you? Like mines, caltrops, or other kinds of traps? Also, are you guys planning to test crafting in the battle arena before the release of the game?

      Yes, we are experiencing a few problems with the current Linux build, though they should be resolved soon, and we plan to release it along with next updated version for Windows.

      Thank you! We are planning to make skills progression accessible to players in one of the upcoming updates, so currently they cannot be tweaked.

      Gave the arena another go a few days ago. even with how little content is here, it's fun. I'm looking forward to the sniper and tweaks you guys have done. One question I have though (it's going to take a while to download, so might as well) is whether the traits/perks work or worked in the last version. I was trying to build my character but it didn't feel like any of them worked

      Are you expecting to be able to do a Linux build of this? Last time you said you were working on it so I was wondering if there's been any progress.
