December 31, 2016


Today we celebrate perhaps the most important holiday of the year in Russia. Today, when this year becomes a thing of the past and the new one comes into effect, it is usual to congratulate friends and relatives, summing up the results of this year and plan ahead for the next one. That is why we wrote this text.

Let’s start with congratulations and gratitudes. In 2016 we have released our first game – The Uncertain. The development of a videogame, starting from first prototypes and general plot outline up to the Steam release is a formidable task. And throughout this whole process our community supported us. Thank you! Not a single game would have existed without its players and The Uncertain is no exception. Some of you actively comments on news, leaves reviews and help to make the game better. Some simply play the game or reads news, familiarizing themselves with the game. Thank you all and let the New Year bring you lots of interesting experiences – both online and offline. Let the games you play be entertaining and engrossing. And let the post-apocalyptic future still be a thing of science fiction.

The promises we are prepared to make would be rather brief. In 2017 we are planning to release The Uncertain: Episode 2 as well to port the first episode to mobile devices.

To reflect on the departing year on behalf of only one person from the company would have been too simple. That is why this will be done by several members of our team – according to each one’s experience.

This year turned out to be difficult and probably because of this ripe on events and emotions – both positive and not so much. Happy moments were in the majority, however some negative ones sank into the mind so much that not mentioning them seems impossible.

We started the year with confidence that we will be able to successfully release two projects simultaneously:
The Uncertain and Bomberlands. In time our confidence transformed into hope and afterwards died out completely: we had to suspend Bomberlands in order to focus our all of our resources just on one project: The Uncertain.

The Uncertain was coped with a difficult process that included infestation of bugs at the beginning of the development, sleepless nights and crashed servers before release. Everything was crumbling at the next-to-last moment, assembled at the last one, and visa versa. However, having pushed the release date twice, we were able to release The Uncertain on two platforms. And we haven’t stopped there: the work on Episode One continues, we add more localization options and expand the list of available platforms. In 2017 the list will be supplemented by mobile devices with IOS and Android, as well as Linux and perhaps 7th and 8th generation consoles.

And last but definitely not the least, in Q3 2017 we will release The Uncertain: Episode 2. We have been listening to you very carefully the whole time – our community – and have talked to you. We will continue to do so, because we believe that you are the ones to help us make the next episodes as memorable as possible. Thank you very much for your support and stay tuned! There is more interesting stuff to come!

Last year was very saturated with various events. Me as a team felt what it really means not to meet deadlines, fix bugs after the release, communicate with unsatisfied users, deprive ourselves of sleep and be fueled by energy drinks, launch the game million times and test the same scenarios in the game over and over again – everything, that any indie-development team should experience. There always was that lingering feeling that there is still work to come and that there is no end to it. However the release is long gone, we did it! But we can’t sigh with relief yet: new platforms, newfound bugs and the second episode force us to give our all to the game. However, even if it is extremely hard, we love our job, we get tons of experience and we are happy about it! We hope next year you will share our joy when we will release the next episode with a new protagonist, revamped gameplay, control scheme and an exciting and unpredictable plot development 🙂 Stay tuned and you will find out more news!

The most important event of the previous year, the most memorable moment for me definitely is the minute of the release. It seemed that nothing in the world has changed: the sun still rises in the east, Russia is still buried in snow in winter, and the summers are still extremely hot. But literally in several minutes our lives changed forever. I am positive we will release more great games in the future. But it will be hard to relive the moment.
Also I would like to point out the support of the community. Throughout the whole development process I was delighted to see positive reviews about the material we have shown as it was created. We gave it our all, considered all the subjects worth looking into during the development of the second episode and will put our best efforts in order for you to be satisfied with the second installment of our game!

4-in-1 news: Mac OS, new languages support, Steam Sale and Episode 2 announcement.

Today we have got four pieces of news for you. We have finished working on porting game to Mac OS, added support for French, Italian, Hungarian and Polish languages, our game will be part of upcoming Steam Winter Sale and lastly we are ready to unveil first details about the second episode of the game. Let’s get to it one at a time.

Starting today the game will be available for Apple users. In order to get to write this short line, we had to carry out a huge amount of work. Today our efforts in this field came to an end and we invite you to check the results yourself. It is important to us to make the game available on as many platforms as possible, so even if Windows, Mac or Nvidia Shield does not suit you, keep following the project. Anyway, we are glad to welcome Mac OS users as we speak.

The Uncertain is a project with developers as well as the users from different countries. That is why we released the game in English, Russian, Spanish, German and Brazilian Portuguese. Today we are adding support for four more languages. Now you can see what is happening in the game also in French, Italian, Hungarian and Polish. We are planning to further add to this list, but one has to admit it is already not that small. So we wish you a great playtime, regardless of what language you are speaking.

We are often get questions about the fate of the second episode. Today we are ready to answer a portion of those questions. The second episode of The Uncertain will come out in the 3rd quarter of 2017. A more accurate release date will be announced later. during our work on the second episode we will take into account your remarks and wishes. Just as one of our founding members said one day, “I’ve read every negative review on Steam”. In spite of the second episode being early in development, we are already ready to share some details about it. First things first, we have got a professional scriptwriter working on the game now. This mean you can expect a much more complex, deep and captivating writing. We are revamping the control mechanics as well as the camera design - so the gameplay will become more comfortable and the immersion will be more powerful. On top of that, we have taken your remarks concerning the puzzles into account, so you can expect them to become more consistent and interesting. One last thing: the second episode will have a different protagonist. However, we will not disclose anything in that regard yet.

Lastly we would like to inform you that the game got a 60% discount as part of Steam Winter Sale. If you have been postponing the purchase - today is the perfect time to introduce yourself to the game. A world devoid of humanity awaits, and you are the one to uncover its secrets.
