Vad utvecklarna har att säga:

Varför Early Access?

“If you are not interested in joining Niche’s development process, we encourage you to wait for the full release in Q3 2017. The game still misses a few features and polishing.

We love to work together with our community to create an entertaining and unique game. Our playtester group provided us with valuable feedback and suggestions during the early stages of the development. Early Access allows us to easily collaborate with interested people in order to evolve Niche into its final form.”

Ungefär hur länge kommer det här spelet att vara i Early Access?

“We want to release the full version only when we and the community think that the game is ready. We estimate that this will be in Q3 2017.”

Hur är det tänkt att den fullständiga versionen ska skilja sig från versionen i Early Access?

“The final version of the game will have more content and features. We are going to add additional genes, biomes, plants, preys, etc. Existing features and controls will also be more polished.”

Hur är det nuvarande läget i versionen med Early Access?

“This is a beta version of the game. It is neither content nor feature complete.
The game currently features over 70 genes, 3 biomes and 8 islands.”

Kommer spelet att prissättas annorlunda under och efter Early Access?

“The final price is going to be lower than the Early Access price.”

Hur planerar ni att involvera gemenskapen i er utvecklingsprocess?

“The people who love Niche are a vital part of our development process. Features we implement are discussed to gather feedback. We also encourage our community to suggest their own ideas.”

Update Preview 0.5 - Interspecies breeding & Pattern system

Finally the update is on the preview branch :)
Pretty much the WHOLE dev team was sick during the last weeks, so please excuse the delay! As usual this version is not quite finished and still rather buggy, that's why we uploaded it on a separate branch.

Please note: If you just want to play and enjoy the game DON'T play this version. This version is for bug testing and feedback. Your game will automatically update itself as soon as the update runs well and is pushed to the main branch.

What is new?
- Lots of new island + special challenge islands
- More content for swamp and savanna biomes
- New dynamic pattern system
- New gene unlocking/ mutation system
- Interspecies breeding with Bearyenas
- New textures
- Small adjustments and fixes
(Sickness lasts only 2 days, healing plants cures sickness, ...)
- Lots of new bugs xD



--------------------------------------------------
How to get the update:
> right click on Niche in your library
> click on properties
> select the beta tab
> select the dropdown and choose “buggy_0.5_preview"
> the game will update, please wait (restart Steam if the game is not updating)
> play :D
> report bugs and leave feedback here:

If you are a Youtuber/Streamer:
Please inform your viewers how to access the update and let them know it is a preview version.

This update features a lot of new content and we had to rebuild the game quite a bit. Because of this older save files will unfortunately not be compatible with this update.

We are really curious to hear if the game runs well on your computers now since we hope to have fixed some of the performance issues.

Known issues (currently fixing):
- Animals don't have textures currently
- Animal patterns sometimes don't match with portrait and family tree image

The full release of the game in September is coming closer and closer!
This will be the last "update" before release. However we will keep pushing new builds to the preview branch every few weeks until launch.

Thank you all very much for your time and support :)

What is new?
- 2 new islands (Snow/Grass Island, Snow Island) + some islands reworked
- New biome: Mountain (along with 2 new predators and 1 new prey type)

- Twin birth and fertility system
- Updated sickness mechanic (sickness can now spread)
- New prehistoric genes
- Temperature system that allows more flexible weather and temperature events
- Added heat and cold resistance
- Added filters to the family tree
- Added a community translation system + German translation
- Lots of big + small fixes and improvements



This update features a lot of new content and we had to rebuild the game quite a bit. Because of this older save files will unfortunately not be compatible with this update. If you want to keep playing with your existing save files, here is how: http://niche-game.com/updates/

Please note that we plan to completly replace the current mutation system with a new one soon. That is the reason why the new genes are not in there.
It seems the game's performance has suffered a bit with this update. We are currently investigating and hope to increase the performance again in the next weeks.

Up next: New mutation system and procedural fur patterns.

Thank you so much for your ongoing support <3

Cheers,

Om detta spel



Niche - a genetics survival game is a fresh blend of turn-based strategy and simulation combined with roguelike elements. Shape your own species of cat/fox/bear/dog-like animals based on real genetics. Keep your animals alive against all odds, such as hungry predators, climate change and spreading sickness. If your species goes exstinct the game is lost and your evolution needs to start anew.

Key Features:

  • Real genetics for breeding system
  • Over 100 genes to shape your species
  • Procedurally generated worlds and animals
  • 4 biomes featuring different predators, prey and flora to explore
  • Game mechanics inspired on population genetics

Games that inspired us:

  • Spore
  • Don’t Starve
  • The Creatures series
  • Warrior Cats

Educational aspects:

While playing Niche, the player is introduced to the scientific mechanics of genetics (featuring dominant-recessive, co-dominant inheritance, etc). The game also features the five pillars of population genetics (genetic drift, genetic flow, mutation, natural selection, sexual selection). All knowledge is interwoven with the game-mechanics. This creates the effect of learning by playing.
