We have now chosen to release Entropy, taking it out of early access, as well as significantly lowering the price. It is our hope that this will bring in new players to give the online experience the game was meant to have.

For those who have not played the game in a while we have made quite a lot of changes to the startinging experience of the game. We recommend that you start a new character to experience it, and to make it easier to get into the game. We have given all players an extra account slot so you can do this without having to delete one of your older accounts.

In terms of future support, we can promise that we will try to keep the servers up for as long as there is any player activity, and whatever money we make from sales will go into updating the game.

Exciting news, Everyone!

After all attempts to fix Entropy gameplay and long internal discussions, we’ve decided to change development focus. Hold your horses! We are NOT abandoning Entropy, just shifting priorities and and internal resources.

There are many reasons to do it. First of all, we all came to the conclusion that space games are either too boring, or either too complex for the average player. Secondly, we now feel that the gaming industry is changing thanks to Virtual Reality helmets. And finally, let’s be honest, economy and trading materials are not trendy anymore in games.

Plus, we want you to be more involved with your character. We want you to develop him/her and grow a connection with him/her. The brand new Story Missions introduced in the latest patch were only the first steps.

Today, we are proudly announcing to you, dear Entropy players, that we are now currently developing a brand new feature for your favorite game: Night Life!

Next Gen Dating Simulator
Did you ever dream about a dating simulator where you can meet beautiful alien girls? “Night Life” is a all about that. Your character can now seduce sexy alien girls in any bar in the system. Talk to her, flirt, lie, drink cocktails and even dance together.

Night Life will also add a bunch of new social RPG skills to your character: Barter, Persuasion, Charisma… Finishing the solo story missions will allow you to gain experience to augment them and shape your character to your own desires: Will you make a Womanizer? A faithful husband? Yes, you read the right word. Marriage will also be added to the game.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=657265030

The game you already love will be deeply enhanced by a new, never seen before, social-tactical gameplay, and rich dialogs that interact with complex AI behaviours and intriguing storylines.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=657265613

To cater for every taste, many beautiful alien girls will available at launch, you will find them in all bars on all space stations.

A side note for the girls, as we cherish you as players, you will be able to flirt with alien males. Or females, actually. You can do whatever you want with your social life as we want to make Night Life the most developed, realistic, involving sci-fi dating simulator on the market.

VR Support
Virtual Reality is the next big hit. You know it, we know it! And we have been tinkering with a VR dev-kit for a while now. Entropy will been ported on VR platforms to give you me most immersive sci-fi dating simulator ever.

At some point, you can expect space fight in VR too, but later: as I said, we are now focusing on a deeper, more personal Entropy).

So, yes, Entropy Night’s Life feature will bring Entropy to the next level, to, VR, to the future of gaming!

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=657266012

Planned Release
Entropy’s Night Life is, as you can imagine, a big new feature, with a lot of challenges to overcome. We should warn you that updates on Entropy will be scarce in the months to come as the team will be mainly dedicated to “Night Life” development.

Entropy’s Night Life is planned to be released in a year from now, on 1st April 2017.

Thank you for your interest and continuous support!

Hi Everyone!

We just released new live update and here is the short list of changes:

Police Patrols
Police forces patrol star systems controlled by the faction now and they will not tolerate any crime. Players can attack anyone in the game, but consiquences will be different depending on system type:
  • In green systems, if victim was a non hostile ship, aggressor will be chased by the nearest patrol;
  • In yellow systems it is safe to attack ships from other factions;
  • In red systems you can do anything you want!
Police patrol will ask player to pay monetary fine, and if rejected, they will attack. All crimes will be taken into account and accumulated, so player have to pay once for all previous crimes.

Game Size Reduction
We have done serious optimization of game resources and now installation size is about 4.5Gb instead of 15Gb.

Ships Stats
We rebalanced ship cargo capacity of all ships to differentiate them more.

Russian Translation
First pass of Russian translation is finished and is available for testing. It is incomplete right now and will be updated. We also working on Norwegian translation and will add more languages later.

Technology
Game client upgraded to latest version of Unity and Direct X 11 support added.

Fixes and Improvements
  • Fixed multiple minor issues in missions and activities;
  • Improved UI fonts (for example larger font is used for Chat tabs);
  • Container marker is visible only in ship sensor range;
  • Fixed multiple bugs related to AI (improved stability and performance).

From now on we are planning to release smaller updates every one or two weeks, with heavy focus on fixes and polishing. Thanks for being with us, your feedback is a great help!
