What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are launching The Endless Mission on Early Access because we want to be able to involve the community as soon as possible in the development of the game. The Endless Mission, at its core, is a creation sandbox game with a powerful toolset that will let those who accept the mission build some amazing creations, situated in a narrative, so the Early Access community will be critical in helping inform what tools we should introduce / what genres we should explore next, and evolving the narrative.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We anticipate The Endless Mission coming out of Early Access in 2019.”

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

“The full version of The Endless mission will see additional genres being released, multiplayer content creation tools, additional tools that will allow for more creative exploration, and a continued expansion of the story and narrative.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of The Endless Mission will have both story and creative mode. The story mode features the initial story arc and mission content that will walk players through using the tool-sets while they explore the world. The creative mode allows for players to dive instantly into tools and begin creating mashups and custom games via the game’s conjuring and modding mechanic.”

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

“Yes, the price of The Endless Mission will increase once it is out of Early Access. However, E-Line Media has no plans to charge for any DLC throughout the life of the game.”

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

“The community is one of the primary reasons that we are choosing to launch The Endless Mission on Early Access. This is an ambitious game in terms of the range of genres that can be mashed up, the scope of the story, and power of the creation tools - so having a dedicated community along with us on this journey is going to be amazing.

Currently we’re planning on having weekly developer blog updates to share, hosting themed challenges that will highlight community generated content, and listening to the community to help inform us on what features and game genres they want to see integrated into The Endless Mission over time.”

We’ll Do It Live… E3 2018



It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Publishers and developers from around the world take to the stage to share what’s in store with announcements abound.

Well, friends, we have a very exciting announcement of our own. This Thursday we’ll be taking the stage on Twitch’s E3 live stream to share brand new gameplay footage from The Endless Mission and do some live Q&A. We’ll be showing the first community-made games in action as well as some brand new mashups.

WHEN: Thursday, June 14th @ 12:45pm PST
WHERE: Twitch’s Official Channel
WHY: Because we like you

Be sure to stick around immediately after our segment because we’ve also got the 1pm slot too. Weird, maybe we’ve got something extra special planned? Maybe something else to talk about? Perhaps we’ve said too much. 🤐

The Evolution of The Terminal


It’s been two months since we first announced The Endless Mission. Since then, we’ve made a lot of progress with The Terminal -- our hub world -- and thought we’d share some highlights of how it’s evolving!

Concept Artwork
First, let’s take a look at concept artwork that captures our end goal. The Terminal’s aesthetic is extremely bright and almost ethereal with lots of natural light streaming in through the windows and transparent glass.



Pre-Alpha
When we announced The Endless Mission, the Terminal was still early in the development process. In the images below, you can see elements starting to take shape such as the construct area gate and the trees, but note that the lighting and shadows are quite a bit darker and harsher than where we’re heading. There’s a glass ceiling but we’re still missing the tall, narrow windows that wrap around the entire building.



Alpha
In its current state, you can see we’re a lot closer to the look and feel of the concept art. For this most recent update, we made changes to three key areas:
  • Architecture
  • Lighting
  • Custom Shaders
Architecturally, perhaps the most striking additions are the windows above the central area and the cascading windows. These windows let in a lot more “natural” light and in turn create bounce lighting which substantially brightens up the scene.



We also added a statue at the front of each of the halls. The custom translucency shaders for these statues afford a small amount of light to shine through them -- this serves to illuminate the object itself and also adds to the overall lighting in the scene.



Additionally, we refined our light baking process to accommodate the new architecture and simulate more accurately how the lighting bounces off of the direct surfaces to illuminate the darker areas.



We’re really happy with how The Terminal is coming along and this is just the beginning...
