Sequel Store Page is up!



Hello, I've now finally added the Steam store page for Survivalist: Invisible Strain!. So you can click Follow on it to make sure you get informed of news updates - though I'll probably post them here as well for the forseeable future.

There's actually now a bunch of different places you can subscribe for Survivalist-related stuff:
I've also posted a very minor patch for Survivalist, here's what's in it:
  • Stop traded backpacks from being deleted
  • Fix for not being able to complete the game if you don't get the quest from Alice before the Missing storyline ends
  • Small fixes in French translation

Sequel Playthrough Video

Hello again, I've uploaded another video of the upcoming sequel, which I'm now calling Survivalist: Invisible Strain.

This video is a playthrough that I did of Sandbox Mode (i.e. a randomly generated map), starting from the title screen and going through character customization, exploring, doing quests, recruiting people and starting to build a base. It's a pretty long video! It shows a bunch of new features like stealth takedowns and generated quests.

I'm at a stage now where I'm playing the game, finding bugs that need fixing or things that don't quite work and need to be changed, restarting and playing again, rinse and repeat. I thought by now I'd be starting beta testing but it looks like I'm not quite there yet, still got a list of things that need work. Hopefully it won't take too much longer.

Anyway check out the video!

P.S. To make this post prettier, here's a screenshot from one of my outtakes:

Reviews

“I have to say I love this game. It’s a robust game filled with moral and physical obstacles while giving a grand look on the narrative of humanity and the choices we make.”
5/5 – The Indie Mine

“Survivalist has been compared, the developer admits, to State of Decay (published by Microsoft Studios and built on CryEngine 3), but I actually found Survivalist far more engaging and playable from the outset.”
4.5/5 – Indie Game Reviewer

“Survivalist is one of the most impressive XBLIGs ever produced....Survivalist is an intense experience, one of the most content-packed, feature-rich games on the indie channel. It is not to be missed.”
