Sequel Screenshots & Translations fixes

I've mentioned in the forums that I'm working on a sequel to Survivalist - here's some actual screenshots from it! (Right click and select Open image in new tab to view them full size).




There's still a long way to go and I can't say too much about it yet. What I can confirm is that it'll have melee combat, changeable clothes, a basic procedurally generated sandbox mode as well as the main story, and this lower camera angle that makes it look more like a typical third person game. But it's still an RTS hybrid, so there's still command mode and the fog of war, though the viewable distance is further. You can get a sense of what that's like from the screenshots. Also, it's not in the desert anymore - it's further north, there's snow, rain, and seasonal changes!

I can't give any ETAs or deadlines on it as I'd only break them, but I aim to be updating the news pages with various screenshots or videos from time to time. I'm building a little mailing list of people who want to be informed next time I post some news about the sequel, email me if you want to be on it.

Lastly, I've updated Survivalist with a patch containing fixes for the Italian and Russian translations, thanks to some helpful community members.

Trading Cards

People have been asking for me for trading cards for quite some time and now they're finally here! This is all thanks to some very enthusiastic Survivalist fans who contributed some lovely artwork of seven of the main characters. Here they all are:



You should get one drop every 30 minutes of play time. There's also 3 different backgrounds to win (featuring the same characters) and 5 pixel art emoticons. Enjoy!

“I have to say I love this game. It’s a robust game filled with moral and physical obstacles while giving a grand look on the narrative of humanity and the choices we make.”
5/5 – The Indie Mine

“Survivalist has been compared, the developer admits, to State of Decay (published by Microsoft Studios and built on CryEngine 3), but I actually found Survivalist far more engaging and playable from the outset.”
4.5/5 – Indie Game Reviewer

“Survivalist is one of the most impressive XBLIGs ever produced....Survivalist is an intense experience, one of the most content-packed, feature-rich games on the indie channel. It is not to be missed.”
