New Patch is Up (v1.1.2.18509)



Some players have noticed that another patch's gone live. Mostly "behind the scenes" stuff, but in the interest of transparency, here's what's changed:

Changelist [v1.1.2.18509]

  • Safe Zone decals updated upon level save
  • Minor memory optimizations
  • The "Wanderer effect" works when Vsync is "off" and running at a high framerate
  • Japanese subtitles fixed
  • "You're an engineer" VO subtitles fixed (all languages)
  • Vertices adjusted in cafeteria so the "blood room" doors don't clip through walls
  • Player-collider fixed on crane in training pool
  • Fixed unclamped shader that occasionally causes a "white flash"
  • Interpolation added to the mist-on-glass effect (to prevent flashing in/out)
  • Fixed continue button displaying "commence"
  • Credits updated
  • "Open Air" no longer unlocked prior to credits
  • Cuttlefish attack angle adjusted in "Back to Normal"
  • Main Menu options adjusted: now says "Continue" instead of "Start Over" upon reaching the final sequence


Subtitles in a few new languages are on the way, and future updates to address some of the most outstanding requests and criticisms are in the works; watch this space for updates.

Thanks for playing, and the warm reception to this survival story, set beneath the sea. If you like what we've done, please encourage others to #PlayNarcosis for themselves, or maybe leave a Steam review - every bit helps!

Have a great weekend,

Honor Code

For the fans, from the fans.

Narcosis appears to be making an impression, and some nifty homages to the game are starting to come in, from around the globe. Here's a sample...

This illustration visualizes a key-but-unseen moment in the survivor's story. We received via Twitter from @mikannsei0000 - and it looks like more are on the way...



Meanwhile, @kadincunagin shared this chibi-fied Lego version of the game's signature ADS suits ...



Opting for blocks of a more digital nature, YouTube fan BlueBadgerGamer was inspired to recreate the game's opening scenes in Minecraft.



You can watch the vid - and others - right here

Incredibly, the game's even inspired a poem, composed by music aficionado Perktube1, that recounts the entire Narcosis experience... It's pretty spot-on, but you might not want to read it, until you've played it for yourself.




If you're so inspired to create something Narco-inspired, share it with us and we'll be sure to share it, too...

“...So much more than a few gimmicky jump-scares. A beautifully written, immersive psychological thriller which tells a compelling, tragic story... Narcosis is a shining example of a psychological thriller done right, and a must play for any horror junkie.”
90% – Gaming Trend

“...Well paced and immersive ... Every facet of Narcosis feels singular, from the surprising narrative to the well rendered, unique setting. The foreboding sense of dread and unpredictability makes for one of the most exceptional survival horror gaming experiences.”
8/10 – Modern Horrors

“...a unique experience that grabs you and doesn’t let go until the very end... Narcosis is a triumph, managing to get under your skin and stay there long after you’ve put the pad down.”
8/10 – GameSpew

About This Game

Survival, horror at the sunless depths of the Pacific Ocean: Stranded on the seafloor with low light and few tools, an industrial diver takes desperate steps to surface before his oxygen — and sanity — give out.

Conceived as a student project, this first person survival story unfolds following an industrial catastrophe, from inside a half-ton, high-tech dive suit — a “walking coffin." Influenced and inspired by a growing appetite for unconventional horror and narrative-driven games, Narcosis is rooted in reality, but steeped in the surreal.

Features:
  • Pressure Kills: High-stress situations accelerate oxygen intake, distorting sight, sound, space and time.
  • Hostile Waters: A knife, flashlight and flares are essential to surviving the nightmarish flora and fauna of the abyss.
  • Phantom Narrative: The survivor’s account unfolds in inexplicable ways alongside the player’s journey.
  • Beyond Good and Evil: No shadowy organizations or eldritch terrors at Narcosis’ dark heart, only primal fears and human limits.
  • Terror Verite: Primal fears — darkness, confinement and isolation — take on new levels of immersion when experienced in VR.

About Honor Code:
Based in France and California, Honor Code’s collective resume includes such games and series as Assassin’s Creed, Dance Central, Metal Gear Solid, Remember Me, Republique, The Silent Age, and Silent Hill.
