What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“More things are constantly being added and the experience will change over time. It's less beta testing at this point and more expanding on the game, although bugs and glitches are inevitable.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Most likely for several months, but it will depend on what the community thinks.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The current final release goal is to improve graphics, upgrade networking functionality, create more content and provide full Windows, OSX and Linux support.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is completely playable with hours and hours of content to explore.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“It will remain free, but the abilities provided by Gold may change. Nothing that will make the game pay to win, however.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Throughout all of the development so far popularly recommended ideas have been added to the game. This will continue through the Steam release with the forums. The Steam Workshop could also be integrated to allow the community to create their own content. Polls are widely used to gauge community interest in various ideas.”

Canada Map Report #2

Hello!

The Canada map is now starting to feel filled out:





At this point the majority of the special locations are done, and it's looking like the full Canada map will have ~200 new models for people making maps.

Over the rest of the month the towns and cities will be filled in with buildings, (hopefully furniture) and spawns. Aside from that it's mostly a matter of proper landscaping and creating a few more new assets for the big city. If there's still time left after that some of the new items/vehicles will get in as well. (Experimental railgun and military clothes/trucks being top priority.)

Based on your feedback from the last post the crashed train has been moved onto a curvy bit of track! ;)

Thanks for reading!

Canada Map Report #1

Hello!

The Canada map is coming along fairly well! I don't want to spoil any of the secret awesome locations, but here are some things that show off the kind of atmosphere you can expect:




This week progress is slowing down a bit due to end of semester tests, and the first diploma exam next week. Fortunately after that there's no exams until the end of the month, so everything should still be on schedule.

Thanks for reading!

About This Game

Unturned is a sandbox game in the emerging multiplayer apocalypse survival genre. Rather than focusing on being an MMO it provides players with easy systems to sit down and survive the zombie infestation with their friends. Over the course of a typical adventure, groups will have a blast fortifying locations, scavenging for supplies, trying to live off the land and negotiating with other people. The game is being developed entirely with the community in focus, and tons of features are based entirely on feedback:

Fortification:
Players can build massive forts out of structural building blocks, or build onto smaller buildings in the world with barricades. It is also possible to create traps and intricate electronic systems. More options for building are constantly being added based on what the community requests.

Survival:
It is entirely possible to live off the wilderness by harvesting trees and rocks, growing crops and hunting animals down. What sort of survival stuff is added is entirely decided by the community.

Explore:
The game goes where the community wants it to. The initial release map is set on the lovely Prince Edward Island, but over the next few months many more locations will arrive for players to explore depending on what the community wants to see. Currently the island has plenty of interesting locations to discover and loot.

Bandits:
Players can choose to enter player versus player servers and battle other players to steal their gear. Banditry is highly supported with plenty of weapons and sneaky devices.

Heroes:
Players can join player versus environment servers to team up with other people, and easily create clans to play with their pals.

Early Access:
This is the first public release of the game, but new features and content are constantly getting added as a result of community feedback. You can see how far the game has come with the help of the community since the original testing prototype:

Unturned is a DayZ-style survival sim with a Minecraft-inspired art style. I don't blame you if you've already tuned out. PC is awash with DayZ and Minecraft clones. But Unturned is notable in that it's currently the fourth most-played game on Steam, beating Football Manager, Skyrim, and Garry's Mod by many thousands of players— and it was developed by a sixteen year-old. It's an amazing story—the kind only possible on PC—but is the game itself actually any good?
You can play it for free, but with the option to pay $5 to access 'gold' servers, which grant you double XP, 'boosted loot drops', and other benefits. So it's possible to play the game without spending a penny, but the business model is clear—get players hooked on the F2P version and they'll eventually reach for their wallets. Free-to-play developers are starting so young these days.
The survival elements are what you might expect from a game with DayZ's blood running through its veins: hunger, stamina, and so on. But, unlike Bohemia's game, you don't spend half your time running through the wilderness, only to find a rotten banana. Loot in Unturned is much easier to find, and it was only minutes into my first life that I found a rifle. If you never had the patience for DayZ's drip-feed of rewards, this might appeal, but it does make stumbling across a firearm feel less special.
The Minecraftian landscape is chunky and colourful, scattered with towns, military bases, and even a golf course. Here you'll find loot and, naturally, zombies. Hey, this is an indie survival game after all. They're fast and vicious, and it's easy to get overwhelmed by them. But once you've found a weapon, and built yourself a base by harvesting raw materials in the world, you'll last longer and fight harder. It's a structure you'll have experienced in a dozen survival games before, but it works.
There's no getting around the game's low production values. I mean, a teenager made it in his bedroom, so that's to be expected. You'll have to decide whether you can endure its lo-fi look and feel. If you can, you'll find a game with an impressive amount of features, including driveable vehicles and crafting, but also one that is completely derivative. Everything in Unturned has been done before, and better. But for the competitive price of nothing at all , it's worth a look. If it gets its claws in you might end up handing over that $5, but for now my wallet is remaining firmly in my back pocket.

The term 'Free-to-Play' is slapped onto the side of a lot of games nowadays and it rarely lives up to expectations, with many of them carrying the undertone of 'Pay-to-Win'. With Unturned this isn't the case.

The game is a completely free to play zombie survival game, there is an option to pay to upgrade this to a Gold membership however this is purely for aesthetic purposes - Newer/slick UI, extra character model customisations, Gold username displays on the in-game chat, you can also gain access to gold-member-only servers with a few % bonuses like exp and loot but this is a level playing field as you can only play with other Gold members with these bonuses.

I don't wish to give much away about the gameplay but the game is awesome to play with friends and you can set up your own private servers fairly easily.

There are a few bits and pieces that I feel could and most-likely will be improved in the near future:
(There is currently a huge overhaul in development to the game so these points may/may not be valid once the update is live)

  • The crafting system has pretty much zero guidance, and the recipes aren't exactly obvious. I don't like being spoon-fed but Stick + Bolts = Torch didn't occur naturally to me. The wiki contains everything you need to know about crafting.
  • (Only in Player vs Environment) Once you have fortified, armed/equipped yourself, and have a steady income of growing crops the game becomes a lot less challenging - although I still manage to die in the simplest of situations... I would love to see roaming hordes on this game.
  • At present the game only has one map, although the developer (The one developer working on this title) is in the process of creating a new Canada map.
  • Hackers are a bit of a nuisance in online PvP servers.

The above notes are just from my own personal take and experience of the game so far.

These aside, I love the simple, blocky graphics, the open world feel, the insatiable appetite of your character - same goes for the zombies, the weapons and attachments, the survival mechanics, the trust issues, the uneasy silences, the countless naked respawns etc etc.

I would really recommend this game to anyone who enjoys surviving with friends.

You know how an Italian chef kisses his fingers and says something in Italian that translates to "A masterpiece" after tasting their own dish? That's how I feel about this game.

Built a house with my friends (Took 5 Hours) and then some ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ shot us in the face with a crossbow when we were least expecting it... He proceeded to take all of our crap and destroy the house by the time we got back there was nothing but a moldy carrot.

10/10 would waste 5 hours of my life again.

I don't really know why I enjoy this game...

The graphics are similar to Minecraft, not particularly impressive but appealing.
The combat is okay.
Sound is minimal but it doesn't feel like anything's missing.
The difficulty is very high at first.
The crafting is not very self explanitory.

I guess I'd classify this as a guilty pleasure. .-.

EDIT:

I have recently learned that this game is undergoing major updates and the update beta shows a ton of promise, fixing the crafting issues and adding tons of new items.
