Update 1.06

  • Fixed survival storage lockers not saving content when leaving/re-entering streaming volume EDIT: Nevermind this is apparently STILL messed up somehow. Really sorry, working on it now.
  • Added a feature that should help prevent items from falling through the ground. It's not perfect, but it helps prevent it most of the time.
  • Messed up hand orientations should now be properly reset to default

Please let us know if you experience anything else that appears to be obviously broken. It's a big game and we can't always thoroughly test every aspect of it before pushing an update. We rely on you to let us know where the game still has issues left to address.

Thanks again for all the bug reports and feedback so far! I think we're almost out of the woods with the really bad/annoying bugs.

Update 1.04

And latest 1.05
  • Fixed inventory bug where your gear wouldn't load in Main Menu when returning from Survival or Arcade missions
  • Fixed incorrect dino kill amounts when transitioning between Arcade locations
  • Mostly fixed that dead hang at the end of some of the Arcade mode waves
  • Fixed Valley Arcade Trex wave
  • Some melee item tweaks
  • Got Raptors crouching when stalking again
  • Changed what Arcade Mode rackup screen displays (and how/where amounts are calculated). Final "Total" line is now what you've earned on that particular run, not your total banked XP... seems to make more sense.
  • (1.05) - In making the change listed above, I managed to wipe out your score on Merc Missions... fixed that
  • (1.05) - Fixed the tutorial where your backpack would already be on your back during the intro
  • (1.05) - Fixed a reach assist detection issue that wasn't letting you pick up the knife and backpack in the tutorial
  • (1.05) - Made Raptors EVEN LESS good at seeing you since they still seemed too high

Known issues:
-There’s a bug with Mercenary Mode leaderboards posting zero as score. Please avoid playing this mode if you care about your score until the next update.
-There's now already a backpack on your back when you start the tutorial. This is not great - fixing that tonight.

I wasn't able to see anything directly responsible for the couple waves that were reported to not be spawning any dinos in Arcade mode. I'll keep digging on that.

“Island 359 is about one thing, hunting dinosaurs, so if you thought you’d kick ass in Jurassic Park then this is going to be the videogame for you. Split into three separate modes, Survival, Mercenary and Arcade, even the introduction to Island 359 doles out plenty of intense action, giving a brief glimpse at the legendary T-Rex.”
5/5 – VR Focus

“Almost two years removed from the launch window of the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, Island 359 — a game that’s been in Early Access for almost just as long — has evolved from its humble beginnings into a shining example of not only quality VR gaming, but how to improve a project while in Early Access. They iterated on what worked and expanded in areas that were lacking until Island 359 became just as polished as it was ambitious. It’s still not for everyone, but fans of tense action games, shooters, and hardcore survival games owe it to themselves to get lost in the lush jungles of Island 359.”

About This Game

You step off the chopper and into the sweltering heat of the jungle, grab your gear, and head off in search of fame, fortune, and prehistoric beasts. Nobody knows exactly why dinosaurs have shown up on this remote jungle island, but you know you can take them out. You've been hired as a mercenary to kill as many of these things as possible, and the good news is the checks have all cleared.

Island 359 is a Virtual Reality survival game for the HTC Vive and Oculus Touch. Players will scrounge for weapons, upgrades, food, and other items they can find to survive for as long as they can against hordes of dinosaurs, as they explore the increasingly dangerous, beautiful, and expansive island. You're a mercenary, the money's no good to you if you're dead, so you're going to need to survive long enough to get out if you want bragging rights and a fat bank account.
