Finally, here we got our own thread for
Into the Ice
We are rolling out the first Alphas for ITE in August, these are still created in X9 and their main purpose is to show some new Gameplay elements in action
As soon as the first rolling FPSCR hits our dev stations, we will move to Reloaded. This means that all visuals and assets used now are in no way final quality.
Yes, you are Pete O´Brannon again, aka Peter Brenner. After your glorious failure in the final Level of Into the Dark
, you were rewarded with 2 Mio. $. With such an huge amount of cash at hands, you rushed to a tropical island with your female sidekick Samantha. You thought your investigator days were over...
...but you were wrong.
Agent Smith, who had monitored and led your previous operation, re-activates you to infiltrate the secret base in New Swabia, Antarctica, the origin of the mysterious UFO and the Nazi-styled soldiers who hijacked the data in the final battle of "Into the Dark
But first, you have to get into the British Rothera Station in Antarctica to rescue Agent Jonathew Iustin Conner, a Romanian-born, now US-citizen - and CIA field agent. As he is the only one who knows the exact location of the entrance to New Swabia, the CIA finds it VERY disturbing that contact was lost to Rothera Station 2 days ago. Time to get in and find out!
So, what´s new?
In addition the same amount of trash, bad jokes, pop culture references and a totally inbalanced mixture of Adventure and Shooter, we will have two additional gameplay elements:
1. You can freeze to death.
Well, now it´s not "to death", but you can freeze to a state where you are so slow that movement becomes almost impossible. How does it look like?
Well, the first sign is you are getting slowed slightly and the screen gets the first pieces of ice:
You can de-frost yourself by finding sources of heat. If you don´t, you will end like:
As there are 18 stages between those two, you have time to react and heat yourself up.
This is something very special, and I don´t want to reveal all details right now, but basically it can lead to Peter turnign his cloak and joining the New Swabia troops.
How can you get those X9-based Alphas?
Well, there are 3 options:
1. Buy "Into the Dark"
. All Desura ITD customers will get the Alphas.
2. Buy your ticket in the upcoming Desura Alpha funding, Indiegogo and perhaps also Kickstarter campaigns.
3. You are one of the masterminds and great contributors here - in this case I will send you Alphas occasionally.
End of 2014
