Project Explore, starting fresh and starting strong! Alpha is now open for sign up as well! Read the bottom of the post for more info on sign up!
If you have followed my previous posts involving Project Explore, I'm sorry to inform you, but the alpha release will be singleplayer only for the time being. Multiplayer is more difficult to program which overall was slowing down the development process. I have some great news though! After putting in about 36 hours of work into development, I've added loads of new features and everything, as far as I can tell, is bug free! So let me break this all down for you to look through yourself!
-Open World Saving System
-Day/Night Cycle (badly done)
-Crafting System (although not needed for gameplay, and not incorporated because of that)
-Buffs gained from certain foods (such as energy drinks)
-Player can enter any building, each is unique
-Items do not respawn (keep the player moving)
-Items can be dropped and will not despawn, EVER
I am very excited to release this game and hopefully get some constructive feedback. I'd like to apologize for the delay and let you all know that it isn't without purpose. I want to release this game when I feel there is enough gameplay to hopefully provide you with a somewhat fun experience. At the moment, it is not ready. There is still a lot of art missing from the game as well as content in general. So far there are 28 items in the game, 2 of which are fillers. Before the first alpha release, I'd like to have 30+ items, at least 4 outdoor regions, and at least 4 buildings or 1 town. Of course after that, content will be added much faster and you'll see the game fall into place right before your eyes!
