We’ve spent a couple of months of solid development time making Dead State stronger, smarter, and faster, and we’re happy to say that the results are fantastic. We’ve brought new life - or is it unlife? - to every aspect of the game. This isn’t just Dead State anymore - this is Dead State: Reanimated! DS:R isn’t just an update - it’s our definitive enhanced edition with brand-new content, full of improvements and fixes requested by you, our community!

Les points forts :

  • Major overhaul of combat balance! Core combat systems have been thoroughly reworked to take advantage of all the data and feedback we’ve gathered over the months since Dead State’s original release. Ranged weapons, melee weapons, armor, special attacks, ally / PC healing, and more have been reworked and carefully tested to create an engaging and challenging combat experience. Even the core combat system has been tweaked so that AC is calculated before damage reduction; this change makes combat more consistent and more fair​.
  • Smarter AI! Medic, Guard, Grenadier, Sniper, and more - New AI behaviors and schemas exist for human enemies, making them more interesting and more challenging to fight! Enemies will notice your presence more quickly and fully utilize all of their tactical options, thrown weapons, and special attacks.
  • New PC Infection option on New Game menu! Create a new game with PC Infection checked and your character will be as susceptible to infection as your allies are. Carefully manage your antibiotics and change your combat strategies to ensure your own survival!
  • Hardcore Mode!​​ In Hardcore mode combat becomes more dangerous, allies consume more resources and heal more slowly, and Morale is harder to keep up. Turn on Hardcore, Iron Man, and PC Infection for the ultimate challenge!
  • Alarms! That’s right - we’ve added alarms to buildings in several areas. Red, blinking lights warn you that there’s an active alarm on a building. Use your Science skill to deactivate an alarm and prevent a looting distraction from becoming a noisy attraction!
  • New areas and random encounters! Several new levels and random encounters have been added. Make sure to keep an eye out for the Chemical Plant, an area with a unique twist…
  • New combat sounds and animations! We’ve added new special attack, reloading, and healing animations and sounds. Special attacks feel smoother and more impactful now!
  • Stability improvements! We’ve rooted out every crash and progress blocking bug to make sure you have the smoothest possible experience. Several popularly requested usability improvements have been added, such as friendly fire confirmation, looting piled up bodies, and an option to toggle Live Shelter movement on and off.
  • Pathfinding improvements! Both allies and the undead have received major pathfinding adjustments that will reduce lag some people have experienced as well as make movement more consistent and natural.

Grosse interview de Brian Mitsoda sur un site allemand (hardbloxx.de)

 

(...)

Thomas: What is the current state of  “Dead State”? In your opinion, is the game now completely finished? Will there be more content from your side? How about the modding community? Will Double Bear release some kind of modding tools in the future?

Brian: Dead State: Reanimated is probably going to be the last significant update to the game, aside from a few minor fixes. We’ve never charged for DLC and the downside to that for us is that the game doesn’t generate the money to sustain months of developing new content. After years of developing Dead State, the DoubleBear team is ready to move on to our next game.

As for modding, you’ll notice that many RPGs that have robust mod tools usually have a separate team developing the consumer version of the tools. It’s something we might have done if we had more funding at the beginning of development, but it’s not something we can easily do now. We’re cool with people modding the game – and many have figured out how – but it would be an expensive task for us and the audience for those tools would probably be fairly limited.

Thomas: Referring to the last question: Will the game ever be released in a different language? How about a German translation?

Brian: It’s difficult to say because the costs are based on the amount of text, which our game has a lot of. The sales would have to justify the cost of localization and development time. We’re still looking into solutions on our side, including possible tools to allow fan translations.
