Development Going Strong! #AFTERSHOCK #BLACKBOX



Hello Fellow Survivors!
Hope you are all enjoying your week, just here to quickly share a quick update about development. As in our recent posts we do not tend to post on steam anymore due to us leaving steam early access (full launch will be on steam) and deciding to go through our own custom launcher.

We have seen a few comments from people who havent been kept into the loop so here i am to nullify and rumors that development is "Dead".

At the beginning of this year the development team went from just being Sam, to four new programmers! Development has been faster than ever and we have been doing livestreams and youtube videos to keep everyone in the loop.

We are currently working on the dedicated servers we plan to release along side the game for anyone to setup.

Thanks everyone for their ongoing support. We hope to be able to make the game i set out to create when it was just me as a lone developer.

[AT THE END OF THIS UPDATE IS A POST FROM OUR DISCORD I WROTE IN RESPONSE TO THE HURRY UP WHERE IS THE GAME? COMMENTS.]








To point out something about that 3 year date. We actually started around the end of 2015 to early 2016 and it has only really been Sam doing work on the game until this year. It was mostly a passion project. Sam 100% admit his faults In the past for setting two release dates he could not hit. That's why instead we have a goal of mid 2019 which right now is reasonable to the team. Progress is great now and I hope that the updates have been good for you guys here (On Discord). As for anyone who has backed on humble and don't read updates or understand that when your backing currently that it's to secure a testing spot and to support the team to make this game. If anyone has backed and wants out because they want some buggy trash game out soon then please look elsewhere. As we want to make the best game that we can. Look to Survive The Nights, they got rushed out by consumers and look what happened, a good Dev team with a promising game gone down hill due to rushing.

We are so grateful that we get to work in this industry, we wont let you down.

Stay Tuned
BLACKBOX STUDIOS.

Still Active + Update from 28/06/2018 #AFTERSHOCK #BLACKBOX

Hello everyone!
We have been still actively reading our steam discussions and comments left on update posts and have noticed a few people asking if the game is active in development still or where the update posts are?

Time to answer that question for people who didn't read our other update posts (Which i recommend doing!)

We have moved all of our updates to our forums and discord:

"A Game To Look Out For"

About This Game

The Game takes place is La Feria, in the year 2022. An unknown organization built large radio towers which fried anyone's brain in a nearby radius. These people became aggressive and would kill anything in their way. There were rumors of La Feria, being a safe place, but the rumors were false, as you would soon find out.

  • Survive with up to 64 other players!
  • Fully Dynamic Weather System.
  • Gather Resources to Survive.
  • Explore the large rich map 'La Feria' (169^2KM).
  • Build bases with your friends.
  • Place traps.
  • New take on the vehicle system (read more below).

  • Being in range of a tower can have various effects on your character.
  • Being in the radius of a tower without the proper head gear can fry your brain turning you into a CRAZY.
  • Towers can be manually turned on and off from the tower itself.
  • Towers can be disabled in server settings and spawn randomly on map load.


  • Build a base to keep the CRAZIES out and other players.
  • Different resources build different parts.
  • Place traps to fend off enemies.
  • Turn your vehicle into a moving base.


  • Explore the large world of La Feria with Vehicles, because walking isnt that efficient.
  • Walk around in moving vehicles like a Bus or an RV.
  • Fortify your larger vehicles with Traps and Fortifications.


  • Full Dynamic AI affected by the Day/Night cycle + Weather.
