Schacht 1.5 Released




Well hello there!

With Halloween upon us, we thought it was time for a special treat for you guys!

As announced at the beginning of this month, a big content update for Schacht just went live!

There are new features waiting for you (some more visible, some seemingly invisible), we improved existing mechanics and of course important bugs were fixed.

Prepare yourselves for:

New Features:
  • Massive performance improvements, as announced in the last post
  • Removed loading screen for any procedural level and added transition animations for a smoother experience
  • Reworked checkpoint mechanic - You now get a small penalty when resetting on a checkpoint instead of just continuing the timer. We hope this makes the use of checkpoints more competitive.
  • 10 more segments were added to the algorithm to make the levels even more exciting and diverse!
  • Huge space stations and bigger scrap parts now float around in the levels and add to the overall atmosphere
  • Several new character accessories were added - among others a special Halloween accessory is waiting for you!
  • Benchmark for Performance verification
Improvements:
  • Tweaked skybox to be more diverse in between levels
  • Improved respawn UI and added sound effect
  • Tweaked camera sphere to prevent odd point-of-view when coming close to walls or big objects
  • Toaster accessory now actually toasts
  • Added even more (and more detailed) graphical settings for you to optimize your experience
Bug Fixes:
  • Textures do not lower in resolution after the first checkpoint in high or lower texture quality settings
  • Fixed Xbox One gamepad rumble not working correctly
  • Camera now recenters on button-press instead of on button-release
  • Fixed LODs and collisions of several segments and platforms

We hope you will enjoy the new content! Happy Halloween!

Moving Forward

After a longer time without any news from our side, we’re finally able to announce a bigger update for Schacht that is coming to Steam at the end of this month! As usual the update will fix some bugs in the code and the graphics.
But besides that you will get some major code improvements, enhanced game mechanics and enriched eye candy with this update!

We changed a lot inside the core of Schacht to increase the performance of our game. With the switch from Deferred to Forward Shading, the implementation of SSAO and a thoroughly optimization of all 3D assets, we were able to boost the performance overall by up to 70%.

As the update goes live, the time you need for a complete track isn’t running continuously independent of your actions anymore. We think this behaviour was unfair as it punishes the players differently, depending on the place of their failure on the track. In the new system we work with a constant penalty time that is added to your last time saved at a checkpoint.



Space isn’t empty! Or at least it shouldn’t be. That’s why we’re going to push more on our narration of an interstellar battle zone / scrapyard for Schacht. This will be done by adding several new 3D assets to the surrounding space like shipwrecks and dead space stations.





Hopefully this improvement doesn't distract you too much from reaching a high score ;)

So the last words of this post should tell you the date at which to expect the update.

With love,
your friendly neighborhood scientists

P.S It will be the 30th of October

About This Game

Schacht is a fast-paced 3D platformer set in a science fiction interstellar battle zone. In the highly competitive gameplay you have to run against yourself, your friends and against strangers from all over the world. Players have to complete very challenging tracks as fast as possible, therefore the character has special abilities to overcome different types of obstacles like force fields, deadly platforms, slides or enormous gaps in outer space. Players can choose from over 4 billion different tracks, based on several hundred different parcour elements, to master.

Let your friends grow desperate while they try to follow your ghost in the asynchronous multiplayer! The best run of each player is captured and saved as a so called ghost which can then be activated by others to compare themselves with. Find out who is the fastest, set new highscores, and become number one!

To compete against others and to maximize the fun, Schacht comes with a league system and highscores for daily, weekly and other challenges. Personalize your experience with the character customization system – it is somewhat silly but definitely worth a try and it already offers over 60.000 different combinations. And if this wasn’t enough, there is even a level editor to build your own levels and share them with the community.

Schacht - Hard to pronounce, even harder to beat.
