Minor Update: HUD Scaling For Ultra Res


We've just pushed a new build up that better scales the HUD to support resolutions greater than 1080p. Just a minor rationalisation, but some folk were asking!

There are also some minor Unity updates to the engine too, which might result in performance increases on some systems.

Mac & Linux Versions

We're hunting down a couple of last bugs for this and do some more private testing with friends before we push these live. Shouldn't be too much longer.

Update From Tölva - 50% Off Sale! Other Stuff!

Hello there!


We've got a bit of news for you: firstly we're the daily deal on Steam today, which means 50% off for the first time. Please tell your friends! And your enemies, they need to know, too.


Nextly: We are working on the Mac version of the game at the moment and plan to deploy a beta release next week. Obviously we'll announce that when it happens, but we wanted to give you advance warning. There will also be some tweaks pushed to the Windows version

And yes, we'll look at Linux after that! :D


Olly and Jim are busy working on the free expansion right now - which we're calling ICE VARIANT - and it's making tremendous progress. It's still a way off yet, because we're building some excellent unique stuff for it, but we think you'll like it.

Some quite early screenshots. We'll show off some winter weather shots soon, too.


Dan has been looking at some performance improvements to follow the patch we'll push out alongside the Mac beta. These may or not prove to be minor, but they should help in some specific cases where people have been seeing unexpected low FPS. Expect that in a future patch.

    The Story So Far

    In the distant future, star-faring robotic factions sift through the ruins of an ancient civilisation. On the highlands of Tölva, beneath the shadow of abandoned war machines, they found something.

    Was it the source of the signal you were so interested in? And will the trail lead to enlightenment, or something more sinister? You hijack a drone and you begin the search for yourself.

Explore, ponder strange texts, and find tranquillity between the battles. You will make use of a range of powerful tools to overcome your enemies and uncover secrets: hack robots to battle alongside you, equip powerful weapons, and detonate savage defence systems.
