Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early access allows you to forge the game as you want it! It will allow me to know how much people are interested into the game and how big it will be at the end! I have huge plans for Almost Alive, but the players are the ones that will decide how much features I can add.
It will also help me to get constructive feedback and recruit people for specific jobs! Being a one man army isn't easy!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game might stay in early access for a year and a half up to two years and a half, it will depend how much money and interest it generates and therefor how much features I will add overtime.”

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

“The full version is going to have a huge open world and hopefully a lot of mutants and bosses to fight. With the mutants the game-play will be more intense and the game will get it's survival feeling... I hope adding a team management, an advanced AI and much more!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All basic mechanics and the fighting system, dialogue system, inventory, character progression, world destruction, multiple paths are already in game! You can really get the feeling of what the game will be! The 3 levels already in game allows 5 to 10 hours of gaming and the quest siding allows a huge replay ability.”

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

“I plan to gradually raise the price as I ship new content and features. The earlier you get on board, the cheaper!”

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

“I will consider all new ideas and every feedback very seriously! Some of you might get their portraits or NPC in the game!”

v0.447 patch notes

_Added 7 soft sound tracks and 7 hard ones!!! Thanks Chris!
_Forgot to save one important element on Level1 which made some items on decor elements not save at all, possibly ground elements weren't saved either......!!! now fixed, sorry about that!
_Fixed a bug killing your save on level 2 because of some tables with chairs in the GONE base
_After some testing lowered stamina for jogging by 20% and by 15% for sprinting.
_Readjusted Stealth, with the ninja skill if your stealth is too low ( because you're using a flashlight or because you are sprinting and because of the day light ) you will go out of stealth.
_Adjusted Dialogue problems with factions that are initially hostile. Those bugs could happen after several reloads or if making them hostile again.Also they should appear on the minimap when not hostile and having quests. Same goes for the doctors.
_Added some Insult once a character decides he shouldnt talk to you anymore.

More fixes :
_Level1 Two Cars had the same reference and the loot in one of them wasnt saving/deleting
_Level1 some debris at Army base was a too huge cover and was not logically giving opportunity to hit soldiers when you were flanking them.
_Level2 Phoenix on table path
_Level2 Container looting in GONE base
_Level2 box looting in ROA base
_Character Sheet level description
_A little grammar correction

Again if your save doesn't work, you will have to restart a new game...but most likely it will work!
Hopefully this is it for the critical bugs destroying your progress :)

v0.446 patch notes

Looks like the game had some critical bugs after the update for some of you ( Save screen frozing sometimes...) and Loading for some others... If your save doesn't work, you will have to restart a new game... but it should be the last time the save is corrupted for quite some time.
_Good news are, I added some leveling up and xp gain multiplier, everytime you finish the two main levels and respawn at the beach, you can keep grinding and retesting for some time!!!(Max level is 51 for now)
_Also fixed a minor bug with a weapon on level 0.

Anyone having a critical saving bug after restarting a New game, please come to discord and send me your save game file, just .zip everything in ...users\AppData\LocalLow\Shad Games\Almost Alive

Another good news is that Chris Pickering is back, and we gonna get a lot of cool music soon and probably some more englishing!

“Men had enough of money dictatorship, they decided to fight mass propaganda using capitalists tools of information warfare. To fight back, the leaders in the shadows released a virus that unfortunately mutated.

I am Emir Cerimovic and Almost Alive is eight years of drawing, coding, game designing… all done by myself. I decided to make this game and have been drawing, animating, learning how to code, and building this game with passion to have all the elements and details I want.

Inspired by classic role playing and tactical games with high development standards like Fallout 1&2, Jagged alliance 2 or Wastelands, Almost alive was my dream of the perfect tactical role playing game with a great real time combat system that features character mental sanity as one of the core elements of the game. You can explore a huge world, make friends, use or steal them, find tons of loot, make traps, sneak, destroy everything, fight smart enemies or mutants using your character skills and abilities… The simple looking real time, fast paced combat system is hiding a highly complexe engine using tons of information from your character sheet, the objects your character is using and other elements like your character moral or his sanity in order to decide of timers for a successful aim, recoil of a weapon, the maximum accuracy when walking or running while gunning, the effectiveness of a cover, etc…
