What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Its a great way to get feedback during the development process. I want this game to live up to its potential. I need the help of anyone who comes across this game, whether it be from feedback or someone willing to contribute an asset or idea to the game. I don't have the money pay people for their contributions as of now but if the game does well in early access I will be more than happy to pay out compensation for peoples work towards the game. If you want to donate out of the goodness of your heart I will be forever grateful!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Maybe around 2-3 years. I plan on developing this game until I feel it is ready for a full release.”

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

“The full version will be a lot longer than the early access version. It will also have very solid fps mechanics and AI. I hope to develop the AI to be really challenging and intelligent over these next few years. More guns, features and biotic abilities will be added. UI will definitely change for the better. Level design will probably evolve to be more like AAA fps games as time goes on. Graphics will also improve and voice acting will improve dramatically if I can find some talented voice actors who are willing to help.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Fully playable with some bugs. The gameplay, levels and the AI needs some significant tweaking with more features added. There is only one chapter that is playable and that should take around 1 and a half hours to complete. The other two chapters will be added periodically.”

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

“Yes, the game is really cheap now as it still has a long way to go in terms of development. When the game is feature complete it will cost what a typical indie game would cost on Steam.”

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

“I plan on keeping the community posted with updates on development progress and people can offer constructive criticism on how to make the game better. They can contact me directly at sophontgame@gmail.com to offer me any type of help they want to give.”

Early Access Improvements

Hello everyone hope y'all had a great weekend. Big thanks to [AKA] decizion for giving me some helpful suggestions. I was able to make some of the changes over the weekend and uploaded the updated version to Steam. Your version of Sophont should be 0.3.3

Here are the changes:

  • Level selection in the menu for those who have completed the first chapter.
  • Improved the SMG and Rocket Launcher.
  • Added more ammunition around the maps and made sure to make them easy to find.
  • Dismemberment occurs on rocket damage.
  • Reload animation every 7-13 seconds to stop the continuous fire for the AI.
  • Reduced accuracy slightly for the AI ( I might need to reduce the accuracy some more, still testing it out).
  • Biotic Teleport for the AI where they teleport behind the player is reduced to a 1/5 chance every time it triggers instead of doing it every single time. This should dramatically reduce the frequency of it happening.
  • Fixed some small bugs I found while playing the game.

I'm working on getting the sound settings in the menu. Hopefully I will have it done by next Sunday. Thanks to Miku for bringing that to my attention. Thanks again to the people who are helping me out, you guys are awesome!

I also made a discord server for those who want to be actively involved during the development of my game! https://discord.gg/C7tx4Yu

I will try to post updates every 2-3 weeks to keep y'all posted on the improvements I have made.

About This Game

This game is still in its early stages of development and will evolve significantly over time

Sophont is an action packed science fiction first person shooter that relies on philosophical undertones as the primary focus of the plot.

Features

Biotic abilities will be at your disposal including:
  • Force Push
  • Levitation
  • Forcefield
  • Teleportation
  • And elemental abilities that the player will get to use in the second half of the game

Daniel also has impressive reflexes allowing him to enter Reflex Mode, which is similar to bullet time.

Story Plot

The year is 2999. Daniel Keldrik was a previous soldier who joined the biotic regime because he wanted to live up to his father. His father is known as the greatest biotic who ever lived and is royal protector to the king of Mars. After Daniel went through extensive genetic altering to unlock biotic abilities he was deemed an astronomical failure because he couldn't even perform elementary biotic tasks. Coming from a wealthy family, his father was able to get the king of Mars to fund scientists to develop a prototype bio-enhancer for his son so he could somewhat compete with his squad mates. Daniel, being the only biotic to ever have to rely on the bio-enhancer, gets harassed by his peers on a day to day basis. Daniel also took 3 years longer than his peers during his biotic training to graduate from the program even with his bio-enhancer. Finally graduated, Daniel is assigned to his first mission with squad Omega, the worst squad in the regime. Things go completely haywire on his first mission and he is forced to resort to his instincts to survive. Follow him through the depths of hell and back as he learns the truth about the biotic regime and the dark transgressions of humanity.
