(CLOSED) ISO Design Contest

ISO contest is now officially closed. Thanks very much for participating in. We’ll look into it and publish the result soon. 🙂


As you may know, we are about to launch the final in the next month. And for the final version of our game, we are gonna need a bunch of ISOs as defaulted templates in the creation system. And we need your imagination to create some simple but nice items for us.

Equipment: Sword, Shield, Gun, Bow, Axe
Carrier: Small Vehicle, Large Vehicle, Helicopter, Battleship, Boat
Object: tiny (fine, rough), small (fine, rough), large (fine, rough)
Armor: head, body, arm and leg, hand and foot, decoration
Robot (fine, rough)
AI Turret

Please choose one of above type to create. If you prefer to make an object, or a robot, please do create both fine and rough ones (the fine and the rough will not require exact the same, but should look similar).

1. If your work has been chosen, you will get a steam key as reward. If you provided us multiple ISOs, and more than one of your pieces got chosen, then you will get more than one steam key (one steam key for one ISO).
2. The author will be also named in the credit list.

1. Please keep the item as simple as possible.
2. For the equipment that are made of the same materials, please keep their attack level and the defense level consistence.
3. Please do not place weapons on the carrier.
4. Please do not use customized materials or textures.
5. ISO shall not contain illegal content.
6. Please do not copy other people’s design or the existing design.
7. You can add description or your signature in the ISO.

Deadline: August 31th.

Please leave us the download link of your ISO(s) on our board or email us at admin@pathea.net.

Good luck!

Beta 0.1 Released on Steam

It has been a long road, but we’ve finally entered beta. What beta means for us is that all the major technical and artistic assets are in game, it does not mean we’re only going to balance and bug fix from now on. There are still much left to do. Some key items on our to do list during the beta:

Ingame aid – something like the Word paperclip, optional but should be very helpful for new players.
Adventure storyline – we’ll be adding in a more mission based system to the adventure mode that ties up all the gameplay elements.
AI tweaks and additions – there are still several species and behaviors to be added, also lots of balancing to do.
Storyline tweaks – adding in more cutscenes and more animation to bring the story to life, also balancing.
Optimization – optimize the game where ever possible.
Balancing gameplay – tweaks on animation, damage, hp, armor, defense, where to buy stuff, etc.
Animation – polishing up animation
Make ISO site – attempt to make an official download site for ISOs.
Bugs – terminate all bugs.
32 bit – Make the game run decent enough on a 32 bit machine.

Our beta will not last long, we should be out of it in 1-2 months. Does beta mean that saves will be protected? For story mode, yes. For adventure, no. If you want to be completely safe as far as saves are concerned, please wait for the final in a bit. Now that we’re in beta, we need all of your help to determine the best balance and find all the bugs. Please give us your feedback on our board or the Steam boards or email us!

A0.97 Released on Steam

We’re getting ever closer to the beta build. We are currently aiming to get into beta on July 18th and have the final build by mid to late August. In this current build, we’ve finished up the mainline storyline, you can go all the way from start to finish. It’s not polished yet, so for the people waiting to get into the story, please wait a bit more. We’re still adding in bits and pieces of the side quests.

For the next build, the focus for us is to better lead players into the game. We’re finding that a lot of players have little idea what to do once in the game, so they never get to the point of actually discovering all the systems. We see too many telling us that the game doesn’t have much content, which has us doing a lot of head scratching. Another major thing we’re work on is the linking up of the comfort, strength, animation speed, weapon weight, weapon types, armor types (and perhaps temperature) systems, this will solve several problems that you guys have mentioned before, such as players not using all the weapons and armor or jumping directly to the one with the most ATK or HP. We are also adding more code for NPC behavior when in battle, such as maybe a follower with a start up knife shouldn’t be waving it at a giant robot.

Here’s a new poster, once we hit beta, this will become the new image for the game on Steam.

A0.96 Released on Steam

Hey everyone, we’re now up to a0.96, sorry for the delay, but there were several last minute problems. We wanted to get the story done in this build, but due to some asset delays, that’ll be pushed to a0.97. We did add in a lot of story content. We’ve also added in a new dungeon system to the Adventure map. We plan to use player made ISOs directly from the Workshop as treasures in these random dungeons. Speaking of the Workshop, we redid the programming for it with better compression, it’s now much faster when loading and has more options in search. The bad news is that it’s now reset, so the old ISOs will need to be uploaded again (they’re still there on the Workshop, just that the browser is only displaying the new ones). Another major change is the separation of tools and weapons, axes and knifes will stop being dual use equipment. Instead, they will become tools only. This change was made so that we can separate out the functions for every key. Finally, we also added in a disease system where the player can get sick from the elements of nature, such as staying in the rain for too long without the proper clothing, or out in the desert sun for too long without the proper clothing, or eating too much and becoming obese. This system is still unfinished as we haven’t added in the clothing functions yet.

For the next build, we’re going to get the completion of story, new cg intro, new terrain changes, new mineral deposits, and more. Coming around early June. For a look at the cg opening, check out these screens:

A0.95 Released on Steam

For this build, we continued our quest for feature completion. There was a delay of a week due to several bugs. We’ve added in more behaviors for animals and packs, as well as new animations (most likely some bugs). We’ve also added in more story pieces. We’ll try to finish out the main story by next build in early to mid-May. We tweaked a lot of the gameplay. We figured out some of the reasons why players couldn’t hit animals very well in melee and went about changing them. We’ve also tried to simplify controls where possible. Finally, we’ve tweaked the Adventure Mode terrain, hopefully, people will like this version better.
