Hello everyone! As we are getting closer to November the anticipation grows, so in this update we will give you a better idea of when InSomnia is getting released along with other news and announcements.

Fighting Arena release date

After running a few play-tests inside our studio we were quite satisfied with the results, and thus we will be happy to provide you all with this build next Friday. This first version of arena will include 6 different types of weapons, 5 kinds of armour and the same variety of ammunition. 

You will be able to test close and distant combat, reworked controls system, AI and updated interface. To make this possible you will be able to choose up to 5 types of enemies and bring up to 2 companions to give you a hand while kicking the sorry asses of your foes. Your feedback will help us improve the combat system of InSomnia even further. We will give you more details about this stand alone build next week.

InSomnia release time frames for closed beta and Steam EA

Keeping in mind we still need to get your feedback regarding the improvements we introduced to combat system and other aspects of the game, we realized that finalizing the game in November wouldn't be the best idea. Other than that we still need to finish the localization and give the game as much testing as possible.

Remember this baby?

So taking all this into consideration we came to the following time frames for different stages of InSomnia release:

  • closed beta will be delivered by the end of this year (it's not an updated InSomnia Prologue; you can expect hours of absolutely new gameplay) 
  • we will initiate the Steam EA submission in January 2017

One of the things about Steam Early Access program we are not quite happy with is that it takes up to 2 months for Valve to process submissions, so in case this process will take more time than we expect (and it's obviously far less than 2 months) we might start distributing this EA version of the game to all backers whose pledges include this option before it gets approved on Steam itself.

It's better to keep yourself fit when it comes to places like this one...

We will be able to determine the final release date of the game depending on your feedback about the closed beta / EA version of the game, and the amount of time it will take to get InSomnia on Steam.

See you next week and get ready to test our revised combat system with the help of Fighting Arena build!

      Yeah, we too hope this will happen and so far we don't see any reason why it won't.

      These screenshots demonstrate just one location we didn't show you before, so the light colours are mostly characteristics of this place only.

      Hi guys, I take a look at the update emails I get from time to time and this time I have a reason to come make a serious suggestion.

      The look used to be more hopeless, dreary, and despair filled. I see some screenshots now and there's that standard high contrast blue and yellow everyone uses to make things look nicey nice. Well cut it out! Make it grey! Make it drab! Give us despair! Suck our souls out through our eyeballs!

      That's my advice, keep up the good work guys :)

      We've been talking to GOG for a while, I guess we will give another try closer to the end of the year so they could have a better taste of what is coming.

      Thank you for your support! We will do our best to not test your patience too much :).

      Возможность поиграть в игру в раннем доступе - тоже отдельная награда была, как и закрытая бета. На счёт беты закрытой - да, всё верно.

      2Tyler Johnson
      And we will be there to deliver it! Thank you!

      Yeah, I'm also looking forward to play. Is there a chance for InSomnia to appear on GOG as part of their "In development"-program?

      My mouth is watering. Is like shadowrun meets bioshock and just pure futuro sci fi. I CANNOT WAIT!!! But seriously, take your time to polish and work out the kinks people. I can wait a whole year.

      Юххууууу!

      Это радует:)

      А зачем вам ранний доступ в Steam? Как я понял, игра уже почти готова.
      Разве к Январю она не будет закончена? Почему бы сразу не выпуститься в стиме без раннего доступа? Или я чего то не понимаю? Объясните пожалуйста.

      И ещё вопрос: закрытая бета только для бэйкеров с таким бонусом, насколько я помню?

      Figured the release date would get pushed back. That's ok though, I look forward to playing the combat arena build next Friday!
