Introducing the FAQ thread for INSOMNIA

Hello everyone! While our team is working on a more detailed report regarding INSOMNIA’s transition to the latest version of Unreal Engine 4, we’d like to introduce a useful tool that might be handy for at least some of you guys. We are talking about the official FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) thread that is now live in the Community Hub.

We did our best to cover the most frequently asked questions in this document, however we are quite sure this FAQ can be improved greatly with your help. So basically if you have been asking a specific question(s) in our Community Hub, got your problem solved via either the involvement of fellow players or the dev team AND believe that this information will be helpful to other insomniacs — let us know and we will expand the current version of the FAQ!

Remembering the pre-New Year stream

As some of you might remember, we held a live stream last month. We were giving away quite a few copies of the game itself, Deluxe Set DLC and OST to those lucky ones who were fast enough to grab those Steam keys (we had more than 600 simultaneous viewers that day, yay!).

If you didn’t get a chance to view the stream, we have some great news for you — our team of scavengers was able to recover the original source of the stream that has been broadcasted from one of the most distant and abandoned sectors of Object 6. It is believed that the person who is responsible for this act of low tech video vandalism (illegal broadcasts are generally not allowed) was able to recover an ancient piece of simulation technology to virtually roam the rusty corridors of the station and interact with it.

We did our best to recover and remaster this broadcast for your viewing pleasure but please be aware of possible static disturbances that might occur in the process. We warned you :D Until next time!

GeForce GTX 1080 contest results + news

Hello everyone! We are glad to greet you in 2019! Since it's already January 11th, it's time to announce the winners of our screenshot contest where one lucky winner will get a GeForce 1080 GTX graphics card.

January 9th was the deadline for screenshot submissions and with this in mind, we have approved 139 entries for participation using the WelcomeThePsychosis tag.

Our team was pleasantly surprised by the amount of quality scenes you guys have captured. It wasn't easy to pick who gets the main prize and decide between the runner-ups. Anyway, no more talking — let's find out the names of our heroes: We are proud to present the almighty GeForce 1080 GTX video card to our long time supporter and loyal fan whose history with INSOMNIA dates all the way back to the Kickstarter days. Of course, this is not the reason the entry won. Just look at this astonishing dark themed somnia shore screenshot with a character wearing the most powerful armor in the game (other than the “tank armor” of course)!

So is that really it? Absolutely not! Meet the rest of the submissions that captured the game in the best way possible (in our humble opinion): You guys can expect to get either the Deluxe Set DLC or Original Soundtrack DLC for INSOMNIA: The Ark (we'd love to have more video cards for everyone, really!). If you already have the above DLCs in your Steam library, we will provide you with a Steam key to a HeroCraft game of your choice. The representative of our team will contact the winners shortly, so if you are one of them please make sure your profile is public and you can accept friend requests.

We are super thankful to all of the participants who invested time, creativity and effort into their submissions, since this is exactly what makes it all matter. If you didn't find your nickname in the shortlist — don't give up, we have planned more interesting contests for the future!

What's next?

In our previous update, we have mentioned INSOMNIA’s transition to the latest version of Unreal Engine 4. This switch is expected to improve the overall performance of the game and fix an array of issues that couldn't be addressed otherwise.

We are happy to let you know that the dev team is halfway through this process, but there’s more work to be done and testing to carry out in order to ensure everything works as expected.

Until next time :)

About This Game

INSOMNIA is a dieselpunk sci-fi RPG about the slowly degrading remnants of human society attempting to survive on an abandoned space metropolis. Develop your character, explore lovingly handcrafted locations, interact with peculiar NPCs and factions, craft equipment and try to stay alive in this brutal world.

Welcome to Object 6 - a colossal space station set on a dismal 400-year journey in search of a new home. Your character wakes from cryogenic sleep — stricken with a rare psychological disease and unknowingly holding humanity’s last hope in his bare hands...

Exploration is rewarding…and dangerous

Survive hunger, thirst, fatigue while searching for valuable technology and resources in over 70 unique locations. Pay attention - INSOMNIA’s nuanced world can conceal unexpected quests from treacherous characters, as well as savage enemies and deadly hazards.

Personalized journey

Break free from character classes and unwanted grind with a flexible perk system combined with a large amount of craftable items and equipment. Choose your gear wisely - every armor and weapon type in the game has its own tactical virtues and shortcomings.

Сhoices matter

Navigate a non-linear storyline with ‘points of no return’ that encourage unorthodox approaches and 12 different story endings. Your character’s chosen background plays a role in how you interact with NPC’s and factions, as well as influences the outcomes of certain quests.

A rich universe

Experience a neo-noir world with elements of dieselpunk. Witness man-made apocalyptic landscapes imbued with a dark ambient soundtrack and echoes of a decaying civilization.
