First look at operating Tank Armor and other news

Hello everyone! First of all Studio Mono wishes you happy holidays and quality time with your families and loved ones. We worked really hard to deliver you the promised closed beta in time and everything indicated that we will succeed. As gamers ourselves we understand quite well all the excitement that is associated with getting first exclusive and extensive play of the project that has been under development for so long.

However something we didn't understand was the exact time we would need for translating all the text content of the game to English. Which basically mean we have a beta for you to test but can't give an access to it just because most of you won't understand majority of the things that are going on (dialogues, plot and story etc), so the whole idea behind beta test looses its meaning. Sure we have quite a few Russian-speaking backers but we feel it wouldn't be fair to give an access to the closed beta to a certain group only.

We shouldn't have promised something that we won't be able to deliver (for any reason) and we are sorry for that. Another thing for us to learn and we will do our best not to repeat this mistake in the future. To spark things a little bit we want to show you the first look on how it would feel to be (almost) invincible in the world of InSomnia:

We will certainly keep you updated on everything what's going on in the following weeks. Again we are very sorry for this unexpected delay and wish all of you great holidays!

See you all in 2018!

      I agree with Stefan. Wasn't this game going to be released as a Early Access, still?

      We are quite aware of this and our intention is to deliver max quality on start.

      If this is a good game when it comes out, all will be well. But if it's crap and you delayed time and time again because you wanted to deliver "quality" ... then there will be a problem.

      That's a fair point and yes this is not the first delay that already happened. All this is truth and your criticism is quite appropriate. The translation process was launched a while ago, the estimates showed that we will get everything in time, but this didn't happen. On one hand we don't want to feed you with something that is not 100% guaranteed, on the other hand we can't stay silent forever stating "it's done when it's done" (we are not Valve). So this makes us voicing our plans and they don't always come true, as whenever people are involved failures may occur. We know you don't need all these words, you need what you've backed for. So all this comes to us giving what we have promised initially and we are working on it on a daily basis.

      So Unexpected Delay # 2375?
      Who would have guessed, that translating takes time? You thought you start with it 1 day before Beta Date?

      Стараемся регулярно сообщать хоть что-нибудь, спасибо. Мы сейчас на финишной прямой. Оружия в игре много и "обычных пулемётов" в том числе. В любом случае ничто ещё не окончательно и после бета-теста будет внесено ещё множество правок.

      В этом можете не сомневаться :). При чём это случится скорее раньше, чем позже :D.

      Certainly we have specific time frames in mind, however we are now super cautious about voicing anything before we know it will happen 100%.

      2Weresheep of Sin AKA Stefan
      We are not happy about this either and hopefully this won't happen again.

      Радует что проект все еще подает признаки жизни. А то я уже и позабыл что вообще поддержал его в свое время.
      А миниган какой-то не впечатляющий у вас получился - ни скорострельности как таковой, ни урона. Проще было обычный пулемет замоделить.

      Ну, может в следующем году! :)

      And no ETA? Damn, guys this is not serious at all
