Tales from the Void nominated for best audio

PortaPlays scifi tactics game Tales from the Void has been nominated for best audio at the award event Spilprisen 2017 – a Danish game award ceremony. The event is organized by Producentforeningen – a collective of Danish Producers.
We are happy and excited to be part of the best audio category with our unique and immersive soundscape for Tales from the Void.
The competition is quite fierce though, as we are up against some heavy hitters like IO Interactive’s Hitman and Playdead’s Inside.
But wish us luck and we might yet prevail at the award ceremony in April!

You can read about the award ceremony here: (In Danish)

New patch with bugfixes

Hey players, we have just pushed an update with various bug fixes.

A few weapons that could not be equipped by the correct marine types, now the marines should be able to equip these.

Issue with AOE projectiles that did not detonate correctly under certain circumstances.

Fixed an event, which rewarded a wrong, obsolete weapon not used in the final game. We have now replaced the reward with a better, more useful weapon.

The patch is for PC only, we will push for MAC soon!

About This Game

Tales from the Void is an atmospheric real time tactics game inspired by early 20th century sci fi adventure stories. Prepare yourself for a novel gameplay experience, with squad-based tactical combat, resource management and an epic story.

Travel back to a time of adventure, heroism and mystery as Edwin Albert Taylor Bragg, the British captain of the HMS E18 - on a secret mission to obliterate the Germans and win the war for the allies. When a secret weapon misfires, you and your crew are warped into space. Struggling for survival, you venture out into the asteroid field to scavenge resources and fight off hostile aliens. Food is scarce, air supply is low and time is running out. Can you escape the void and find a way home?

In June 1916, in the midst of WWI, the English submarine HMS E18 mysteriously disappeared in the Baltic Sea to be found again as wreckage in 2009. What really happened to the crew of HMS E18? Embark on an exciting journey, inspired by a true story.
"R.C. Halahan, commander of HMS E18 had his future told by a local woman prior to this last patrol. She told him he was in grave danger, this affected the superstitious Halahan" -Francis Goodhart, commander of HMS E8 (Wikipedia)
