Leaving Early Access and Discontinuing Support



We are leaving early access and discontinuing support on TENET.

This is probably one of the worst things to have to have to write up, but the time has come and we wish there was other ways of salvaging something we spent quite a lot of time working on. I think the hardest part is letting go, and having to disappoint a lot of new and existing players.

There were a few issues on launch that we managed to clear up, and a few minor ones that we never managed to track down.

All in all we had quite the ride and we learned many things along the way. It was our first launch on Steam and we hope to have more in the future. We made some friends, was able to give some players a fun experience, and angered and disappointed a few...

We had a growing list of features and a few fixes that needed to happen, along with some Achievement problems that were found out late after launch, but we never managed to get around to fixing.

One of the main reasons we need to discontinue support is that the version of our engine we are using is now 3 years old, and a lot of problems were due to not being able to update to the latest version without rewriting a lot of the existing code base.

Developing games and apps has always been a hobby for us, dedicating countless hours after work and weekends the inspiration and motivation to push forward starts to run dry after a few years. Dedicating years to developing a game can really burn you out, and we experienced that considering the scope of the game we set out to make and the fact there is only two of us.

We started working on other projects that inspired us more which we continue to work on to this date, also spending more time playing games which is the primary reason and inspiration for us wanting to make our own games.

We managed to bring the game to a stable enough state to not have any major hang ups in game play, and we hope that we may still find some new players who enjoy this sort of experience.

Thanks for playing.

About This Game

TENET is a fast-paced shooter where you are trapped underworld in a nightmarish arena, and the only key to survival is to stay within the light. Survive, collect, and upgrade! With help from the underworld seer, you can exchange your earnings for powerful upgrades for increased chances of survival, along with cosmetics to fully customize your character, killing your foes in style.

TENET takes inspiration from several classics to bring about a fusion of old meets new. Compete for high scores and place among the leader boards. Your skills will be put to the test as you blast, punch, and stomp your way through this gore infused gauntlet as you tear your foes limb from limb.

In TENET your goal is to survive waves of enemies increasing over time in difficulty. Every series of waves end with a Boss Encounter, surviving the encounter enables you to meet the "Underworld Seer" to summon the "Pillar of Vis" which grants access to a powerful weapon upgrade or exchange to convert the current sessions collected "Runes" into "Purified Tokens" for purchasing higher quality upgrades and cosmetics in the "Player Profile".

Please note that the game is currently in Early Access which means this is not the final state of the game. Please read the Early Access notes above for more information about our current and future plans.
