What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Wormhole City is being released for Steam Early Access to gauge interest in our game and to aid the resources required for completion.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate Wormhole City will be in early access for one year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full game will have more story levels, enemies, skills, puzzles and variety that will take different environment and character interactions to complete. We are including new vehicles and adding features to those that currently exist. Levels requiring squad-based gameplay are currently in development. You will be able to command units to move and execute special actions unique to their character and their deaths will be permanent. We plan to include a deeper progression system. The full game will take longer for players to complete and your actions will affect the story to a greater degree .”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Wormhole City is currently in its alpha state. We will be releasing patches and new features throughout our Early Access phase.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“There are no plans to change pricing at this moment.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We have and will continue to listen to feedback from the Steam community and social media to improve our game.”

Wormhole City Breakdown and Dev Log for Update 1.01.14



Developer Notes

Hello everyone and thank you for your continued patience and support while Wormhole City's game development carries on. I hope to reciprocate all of the passion that has been given to this project by the amazing people who send their feedback as tough decisions will need to be made this year.

To preface and help understand the decision-making needed to be made, Zenrok Studios, when it comes to the development of Wormhole City, is a one-man effort that utilizes assets from different degrees of licenses to help lower production costs in making games. The aim of this approach, along with the release on Steam Early Access, was to gauge the interest players might have for making Wormhole City a full-time project.

Unfortunately this plan and our game's performance resulted in alarming results while life's obligations has strained development time. The responsibility of Wormhole City's delivery in its ambitions were met by shortcomings that were not prepared for this first entry into the video game medium.

With these circumstances in mind, the current plan is to iterate, add, and complete as much as possible and officially release Wormhole City in December 2018. Content and support is planned to continue after release until personal standards feels achieved. The pace of these plans and updates will hopefully show progress and programming improvements within the contents of Wormhole City as this update releases this year.

Changes

General Optimizations
Proud to say individual acts now fully incorporate level streaming. This should substantially decrease load times as alternatives seem to take longer. Extensive coding and levels changes have been made to help this effort as more menu option essentials are put in place.

Initial levels in the game now include more audio-visual cues and interactions, Improved user interface and HUD to Act 1 will show more events to encounter in each level. Levels had been expanded on to help give more clues into the story and the main character's conflicts.




Desert Hovercraft vehicle changed

Replaced previous vehicle in this level with a hover bike with improved controls and collision detection for current and any future driving segments.



Air/Space vehicle replaced with mech flying

There were many critiques with this flight level and to hopefully alleviate the aggravation players experienced, the space vehicle in this section has been replaced with flying mech gameplay, you are now able to fly or run using your mech with controls that should feel better than before. The space vehicle may return.




Act 2


This new addition to the story takes place a few days after the events of Act 1 where Acero Astra combats the mental aftermath and fatigue from conflicts for power and control in space. Wormhole City Act 2 will include 3 extensive combat scenarios that take place in Urban, Water, and Space environments.

The biggest gameplay change in Act 2 will be the camera and aiming controls for mech levels. With flying mechanics now involved, it became difficult to create a functional method to combat enemies above the player character. I hope this new gameplay style will exceed any enjoyment experienced from previous levels. Shifting camera angles will still be used for segments throughout the game. The plan is to add more weapons and functions that focus on mech combat as this project comes to conclusion.



Wormhole City's Future

Plans for Act 3's content will likely leave an opportunity for new stories in any future installments made to this universe. The hope is that most of this work can be extended from its gameplay, music, sound effects, voice acting, and one day multiplayer.

Thank you everyone and I hope the news for this upcoming update may give some optimism and excitement for Wormhole City's future.
