If you haven’t played it yet, keep an eye on it on Steam for a discounted price on the upcoming sale ;)
@Wilt if you scroll up enough you’ll see I already commented on this about a year ago
to re-iterate: every key in the game is configurable (except for the 3rd person camera alteration keys which are in the numpad). there’s also options to invert mouse movement (X and Y separately)
there is no left-handed preset but nothing prevents you from re-binding everything into something that would work for you
@samuraigen52 glad you like it so far!
you are right, there is no multiplayer.
since the beginning I wanted the chance to do it and that’s why the game is designed like that in some aspects (like the AI abiding by the same rules as the player).
at some point I spent some time on it and had a semi-working ‘arena multiplayer’ prototype (which I had lots of fun playing with a friend), and later on I had a semi-working prototype of co-op in the prison.
Both were broken in many places and very sub-optimal in terms of network performance (read: very laggy) so I decided to not split my efforts and try to deliver a more polished single-player experience.
If the game is successful enough and there’s enough community interest I would definitely consider it
Ready your sword, put up your shield, and prepare to escape.
Lone Artisan Games is proud to announce that Elium – Prison Escape is now available on Steam!
The game has a retail price of $13.99 but there is a 10% discount running for this launch week so make sure to get it at the reduced price while it lasts!
@addy419 giving copies to the press is just marketing. relying purely on players’ word of mouth would most likely end in just a few people hearing about it - I’m aware the game isn’t something revolutionary or cutting edge so it won’t just go viral
If you know of such a few medieval genre fans that have the time and also the platform/place to write/show a meaningful review, that really can cause an impact in terms of reaching out to fans of the genre, by all means let me know who and how.
The game will be only for PC btw. The closed-source version of UE3 (UDK) does not support any other platforms
