DLC & FOV



A free DLC is arriving allowing you to play the original Prototype version of ICARUS.1, created for the 2015 Edge get into games contest. This full game was put together in under 3 months and provided the main drive for the final ICARUS.1 game.



Faster paced and at times punishing, this rogue like game will put you through your paces. Loot, lazers and crushing rooms await. It's an interesting play to visually see how thing began with the most insane walking bob ever encountered in a game :D

In other news patch (1.1.1) was released today allowing you to finally change the FOV of the camera. You can now select between a range of 40, 50, 60 and the default 70 Field of View.



Above shows the original default designed for 70 FOV



Above shows possibly a more happier FOV of 40

Keep an eye out for the DLC release arriving soon,
Happy exploring!

Ahoy there Patch!



Hi there!

ICARUS.1 was released over a month ago now and I've been super pleased with the response. There is always that big worry releasing something that you've worked so close too for over a year with how it's going to be received. Thank you all for your feedback.

As with any release there is always going to be bugs and it's the Steam achievements that have caused the biggest problem. It appears that you could not trigger more than one achievement unlock per gaming session (epic face palm)

After some digging around and help from the community I'm happy to say a new patch has been released which solves this problem, it also contains other small tweaks and adjustments.

Thank you all for your patience, it's been a real balancing act as a sole developer getting time between work and being a Father of two.

Trust you all had a good Christmas and Happy New Year!
:D

Abandoned for decades, crew MIA, the ICARUS.1's job was to store mined minerals from the systems outlying planets and perform research duties. Orbiting the local sun to maintain it's solar energy and live up to its namesake, it provided a lucrative business for JME corp.

After contact was lost no rescue attempt was ever made with the stricken station, instead the project was mothballed along with its precious cargo - a cover up some may say.

Many stories about what happened have become lore but Sam isn't focusing on these 'stories', the goal is the cargo and the wealth it will bring.
