    Heh, I didn't notice Deep Silver is publishing this now. https://www.gog.com/game/encased_a_...g?pp=cb4e5208b4cd87268b208e49452ed6e89a68e0b8


    As far as Wayback Machine goes it was Black Tower until August, it was changed to Deep Silver by October. On Steam it's still Black Tower, but there are some private depots intended for Deep Silver.

    Maybe they will funnel more funds into this (along with console releases).

    Ok this is kinda weird even for a game like Encased. From the newest news update: https://store.steampowered.com/newshub/app/921800/view/2919985790006554846

    I backed this game a long time ago but haven't played it yet. And I don't see that it has evolved into something really interesting.

    there was actually a quest in one part where this is mentioned. a scientist smuggling a robot child to play a partr of his daughter or something. also one of your possible companion is anime girl robot. kinda like jenny from "my life as a teenage robot"

    Afaik it's an excuse for paedophile bakground or something - I remmeebr one of the early screenshots was about robo-girl?and your char and probably your character being generated in court? where you could answer that you was sentenced for pedophilia.

    I was playing the game after nearly a year and is largely coming ok. I'm only playing the prologue to avoid spoiling to much and is impressive the amount of reactivity to backgrounds and skills.

    Nevertheless, there is a lot of weird design choices, lack of polish in the systems and general jankiness. Like the fatigue system. Fuck it, it's barely explained what you have to do and how to reduce. Not that there are lot of ways to manage, lockpick a vending machine and you need like three days to reduce the gained fatigue. Wtf? Or the radiation sickness removal.

    Nice game, but some systems are plain busywork and just unfun

    Edit: And they need to rework the stealth, pickpocketing, lockpicking systems. It's just to easy and rewarding. The fatigue as currently implemented is not the solution

    Yeah dude, it was like I said.
    They probably scapped that shit with pedophily, but I'm absolutely sure I saw screenshot with it, and that your @ mke some evolutions around turned off robo-kid.

    Full VO is decline, but this means the game will probably be completed, not just "we ran out of money, ship it" like Stygian.

    Tbh i consider this good news, the delay and more money might just mean they will finish the game

    Agree, but full voice acting concerns me. I fear they will blow all the new money in voice acting which is totally unnecessary.

    Even worse, they will cut a large portion of the dialogues to reduce the cost of voice acting.

    They'll blow the dough in nose candy and hire the cheapest guys they can find on fiverr. Not like I would do anything else, mind you.

    Shame about the delay tho, was hoping to see this finished sometime soon.

    Full VO? WTF! I usually like VO in games but this game didn't need full VO just adding some would have improved the game's atmosphere. And Full VO for a game like this means that they now have to sell a lot more copies to break even. At least the game gets the delay it needed.

    I'd rather see them provide a complete product, than an unfinished mess. Hope the additional funds help. I can wait. Miles of backlog to go through.

    They kept saying "Autumn release. We promise it's coming out later this year." and now they're rolling out a content patch 10 days before the year ends. It makes me think that content patch 4 was going to be the 1.0 release before they got extra funding.

    I hope the guys know what they're doing. Getting a publisher sounds reasonable, but full VO idk why is everyone so keen to do this. First DE, now Encased. It costs a fortune, but does it increase the target audience? I doubt it.
