Yes! My friend made that one, it’s cool too! 

I really liked the game! But why are there no more updates?


the last update on here was 4/27/21, I’m definitely still updating, and more often than I used to! I just haven’t been posting the patch notes here, because they’re in-game now. 

I have another patch (the Courier patch) from last week that’s on steam but not here yet, I’ll try to post it in the next couple of days. 

You can check the bottom of this page to see what the latest version is, and when it was posted! 

Updated, today :) 

I apologize. I just played the demo version, so I didn't see any updates. I really liked the game, and I'm glad that it is updated to this day))) I hope someday I will be able to buy this game. But definitely not this year(

P. S. Translated by Yandex.Translate. I'm Russian. So I apologize in advance

No worries :) Most of the changes at this point are for higher level, which is why I don’t always update the demo.  However, this update has the new progression UI, which shows what levels you get various rewards and when enemies show up, and that’s in the demo now. 

I went to the demo, and realized that the game has changed a lot since I entered it! I decided to do some unusual tag games)) And jumped out of the demo without passing the final test. Was this exactly what you planned?😅

Nice job! We wanted that to be tricky but possible, that’s why there’s a timer on the main quest that forces you back to Portcullis when you’re taking too long lol

I played the demo on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.  AMD Gen. 5 with Radeon 580 and it ran just fine.  A little confusing at first, but after getting an idea of what I was doing, I really enjoyed it.

Thank you!

is this a 64-bit application? Steam says it won't run on MacOS Catalina, but I just had to make sure.

i believe it can run on Catalina if you allow unsigned applications. It’s definitely unsigned. Try the demo either here or on Steam, it will let you see if it works for you!

oh and to answer the original question, yes I believe it is 64b on Mac

Have this on Humble. Any chance of updating the DRM-Free build on there (currently at 30/8/2017 build)? Alternatively - any way to get access to the DRM Free build here without buying it again (I have it on Steam through HB but I prefer DRM/Client free)?

The steam version is actually also DRM free, you can launch it without Steam open!

Sorry I haven't updated the Humble version in a while, they don't make it very easy.  

If you want an itchio key, ping me on the discord or email me, and we can figure out how to prove you have it on steam or humble. 

Updated on here and humble!

Maybe later but not any time soon! It’s difficult to juggle a lot of stores as one person. This version is DRM free too!

Thank you! And one thing to note - itchio gets all the big updates, but i do minor updates on an opt in steam branch much more often. So the best thing to do is buy here, which comes with a steam key, and get the indev branch on steam if you want faster updates! 

Just saw this and I was totally sure I had played and owned it - the look is just so distinctive. 
Has it ever been featured in any game bundle?

Hey! No, I’ve never bundled the game, because it’s still in active development! The ~weekly indev patches are only on steam, but you get a steam key for buying here (and it’s better for me!) 

If you already own the game, check your email, you might have a link from a long time ago! 

Are you guys still working on it? Because this game has the potential and you've charged people with money, so don't stop what you've started.

Hey! Don't worry, I just haven't updated the itchio page in a while. I still do frequent patches on the Indev branch on Steam, and you can take part in the development if you join the Black Ice Discord

I just downloaded the demo, but can't get paste "done" after choosing username. I'm under debian

hey! Sorry, I haven’t updated the demo on itchio for a while. Try the demo on steam? 

This is updated on here now! It should work fine!

I love this concept! It gets rid of the human elements and makes it all just tech! I mean, in comparison to Watch Dogs. I just wish I could play more. Here's Episode 1: https://youtu.be/ZSyH7ye63_A And here's, the last episode, Episode 2: https://youtu.be/6Hh9YNqpNv4

very cool but what engine did you use?

Thanks, I use Unity! Why do you ask? 

Just to get an idea of what games can look on certain engines

Looks cool and it is cheap although i got no money, Only if i did i would so buy it and then play all night :D

That’s one reason there’s a demo :)
