Multiplayer, and bringing things together



It's no secret that Paul and I are struggling to get this update out, and nobody is less happy with the situation than us.

By far the largest problem is the complexity of the net code. Since we started the 3D update, we transitioned across to an open world streamed world, and keeping tens of thousands of objects synced between computers, each with their own unique properties and state, has been a major challenge.

The streaming world has required many months of performance optimizations, but it works decently. The multiplayer has had a similar time investment, and it's not even clear how much more time will be required.



In the interests of getting the game out, we've decided to shelve the feature for now. It's clear that we need to hire a dedicated programmer to work on it, and that's both financially a problem, and doing so right now would delay the project even further.

The hooks are staying in the code, so we can revisit it at a later date.

Single computer couch multiplayer, of course, will work just as before; the game plays great on the couch with some Xbox controllers.



We're also opening up our Trello workspace, so you can see our day to day progress, and Paul's going to write a post on what still is required with a link to the Trello ( http://steamcommunity.com/app/227720/discussions/0/619574421252940000/ < Link to Trello ).

Über dieses Spiel

Shipwrecked on a tropical island, you must use your wits and the natural environment to survive, craft, explore - and eventually, find your way home. Under the Ocean is currently in early alpha.

Craft
Under the Ocean features a flexible, physics based crafting system. Hundreds of items interact in strange and unexpected ways. Attach a sharp rock to the end of some driftwood to make a spear. Then a glow worm for lighting, or dip the tip in poison berries - or both! Build traps to ensnare prey, windmills to generate power, a lakeside cabin, and eventually, a raft to make your way home.


Explore
Islands in Under the Ocean are randomly generated, giving you a new experience each time you travel. Elements mix and match in interesting ways. If you're on a boar infested island, you'd better have washed up armed! Islands can have different size, shape, terrain, lighting, weather, starting equipment, tools, weapons, animals, plants, backstories, hazards and more.


Contribute
Under the Ocean is still in Alpha, so by purchasing today, you’re getting in on the ground floor. This of course means bugs and rough edges; but it’s also a chance to meaningfully support the development of the game, and help shape its future. Vote on new features at http://www.underthegarden.com

"Under the Ocean" hat durchaus Potenzial inne, denn das Cast Away/Robinson Crusoe Szenario verfängt und fasziniert immer wieder gleichermaßen...

Eine Story gibt es, wenn man von einer rudimentären Rahmenhandlung, in welche das Spiel eingebettet ist, absieht, nicht. Das Gameplay wird von dem Überleben auf dem Eiland bestimmt, man verbringt die meiste Zeit mit Sammeln oder Bauen, wobei die Steuerung nicht sonderlich eingängig ist und die Bedienung besser sein könnte - gerade bezüglich des Bewegens von Objekten. Zudem fehlen oftmals Anhaltspunkte, wie man auf der unwirtlichen Insel sein Überleben sichern kann, weswegen kein rechter Spielfluss aufkommen mag. Ferner sollte man eine gewisse Frusttoleranz mit einbringen. Die Grafik des Spiels ist zweckmäßig und bis auf einige hübsche Lichteffekte kein Augenschmaus. Als Early Acces Titel befindet sich das Game noch in der Werdung und darf sicherlich nicht mit den Maßstäben, die an einen finalen Release zu setzen sind, bewertet werden. Dennoch gelten für dieses realtiv frühe Stadium Standards, welche es zu beachten gilt. Neben der engen Verzahnung von Entwicklung und Community/Feedback sollten Updates sowie Patches seitens der Entwickler die Regel sein, was man hier jedoch schmerzlich missen wird (zumindest mittlerweile), denn Updates und Patches hat es schon seit langer Zeit keine mehr gegeben - und wird es wohl auch nicht mehr.

Summa summarum kann ich dieses Spiel trotz aller guten Ansätze wegen des Mangels an Updates und Weiterentwicklung nicht empfehlen.

This game isn't fun at all. It's basically just a tech demo. Still waiting on that alpha 9 update from last december...

I don't know why I even have this game...

No, this game hasn't been abandoned. they are still working on alpha 9. However I don't recomend purchasing it at this time. Alpha 9 is a complete overhaul, so save your money for when the game is worth it.

this is why i hate this "early access" ♥♥♥♥, it does provide new devs a chance, but i also feel like i was robbed, bought this cuz it sounded interesting, what i got for my $12 CAD was a buggy POS that i played for an hour trying to make work. pass this one people, and pass with extreme prejudice.

No updates in over a year. No news in over a year.

Highly disappointing and the devs should refund.

Personally, I liked the idea of survival, building and open world concept which is why I bought it. I'm glad though that I bought it during a steam sale cause I cannot grasp the fact that this game was a disappointment to me. There isnt a lot of instructions - you kind of figure things out yourself, and its not like other building/survival games where you kind of assume how to do things and it works out. I understand that this game is still early access in alpha state at the moment. But the last update was last year... makes me wonder if they're ever still working on this game.

I know that this has been rough a bit here and there - however since the beginning they hid nothing and always told us it was going to be rough. I have complete faith in the team here and will stick with them all the way... I have yet to find something that they dont address - notice I didnt say solve - they have always acknowledged our concerns and worked hard. I can not say that about many games I have tried. This is so far the most fun - problem solving - survival centric - game I have found yet.... I have played many but the thought that goes into this so far has been so much fun - from making fishing spears to withstanding high winds in my house it has been trying but always fun.... great job guys and I can wait to see 9 + .... everything has been a battle but thats why they call it survival right?

I had high hopes. I paid my money. I check in every now and then, for a couple of minutes, just to see what's new and if things have gotten better. After frustrating my way through the stupid interface (or lack thereof) and trying to figure out what the point of this game is for a couple of minutes at a time, I ragequit and ignore it for another couple of months. I regret the money I paid for this game. I had hoped that they would clean it up and make it less confusing/frustrating, but they haven't done a thing with it (at all). Disappointing. Annoying. I give up.

Bought this a year ago hoping to support a cool surival game idea, but the devs seem to have abandoned it completely without so much as a word. Since there's no chance people will get refunded, this should at least be taken off Steam. Waste of money and your time.

It has been a year since I've purchased this game & it is still on Alpha. The game lacks of update feels like the developers has abanddon the project. If you like survival games, there are open games on steam which consist of regular updates to polish the game further.

Incredibly difficult to understand, not worth the money, screen flares all over the place, and... Oh, that's right, the crafting isnt anywhere near as fun as it looks in the video. All around, 2/10. If you are thinking about buying this game, don't. the video and pictures make it look way better than it actually is.

Played this game for some hours when i first got it, and it is lots of fun but still in the early stages of the game.
I would recommend buying this game when/IF they ever update it and it hasn't been abandoned. But as for now i wouldn't recommend anyone to buy it at all.
