Project Update and Steam Sale

 NewRetail


Howdy!

We have just published the update 0.7.1, which brings many visual overhauls and gameplay enhancements. Especially the early levels and outdoors areas have received drastic improvements, as well as the later industrial maps.

We've also completely overhauled the visuals of one of the basic monsters; Mole Mutants. They're the most plentiful of the foes found in game. They now resemble the kind of grisly horror feel that the game world should convey.

The outdoor areas of maps such as Raven Rock have received a huge update, with more grass, rocks and other detail meshes added in. The world now seems way more lively, and we've tried to keep the level of detail consistent across the levels.

The industrial maps such as the Corruption Plant now have signs, walkways and other visual details added to them. We've wanted to reinforce the lore of this near-our-world place, and its mundane vs. surreal aesthetic.

Especially players who have played the earlier early access versions will notice an immediate difference. The game now has story and narrative points and light RPG mechanics, which were already added in the last major update. We've wanted to offer more value for the players beyond just the basic game.

Some players cried out about the harsh difficulty of our previous gameplay demo, so we also updated the demo to better represent what the retail game will offer. We now feel that the demo is on par with the retail experience, and gives a slice of gameplay, which is unique but accurate.

Since we're in early access development, we're also building brand new stuff for the game. Above is a new hellish church location still in progress. There will be more challengeful maps added to Hardcore and Hell difficulties of the game. This will also entice players to play through the game multiple times.

In Kalaban we felt that there wasn't strong enough incentive for players to put more hours into the game beyond the initial playthrough. This is something that we've tackled with our current game. Enemy Remains is also more difficult, but we've tried to create a fair challenge for the players.

We're currently participating in the Steam Remote Play Together event, and we're offering the game with an excellent 75% discount. If you still haven't acquired the game, now is the perfect chance to get into it.

Please share, play the game, and tell us your thoughts about these recent additions. We're always interested to hear feedback on the things being added, and what people would like to see next.

New Demo Available





Howdy! During the last few days we've been working on a new playable demo. It features all new maps, not found from the retail version or the previous demo.

This time we've taken special care to answer player feedback about the demo. Some players were confused about the more action-oriented demo that's was on offer. There was confusion about the demo not representing the retail game, visually or gameplay-wise, so we had to take action. 



The new maps have been built from the ground up to be story-oriented, and have the same level of quality as the retail maps. They will also offer a milder challenge compared to the previous demo, which many found to be way too difficult. Players were getting lost, and didn't know how to seek out the Thinker mutant nests and destroy them. This lead to many unwanted frustrations.

Recently added story bits and flavor points will be prominently presented in the new demo. There will be lots of small details to explore, which we found to be great for world-building and atmosphere. The overall story of Enemy Remains will be expanded through this new demo, offering new insight into the characters and the town the game is set in.


All three survival maps from the retail version will also be featured in the demo. Both the story campaign and the survival mode can be played solo or with a friend in couch co-op, just like the retail game. 

The new demo is now available on download at Steam, and in case you run into problems with Continue function from the menu, just hit New Game and start the experience anew.
