Big Changes to the Pre Order System - #AFTERSHOCK

Hello everyone! After doing some research into our pre order system we came across a big roadblock, we cannot do pre orders that include beta keys to the game, this is steams policy so we will not cross it.

So you may be wondering what that means for AFTERSHOCK and Pre Orders?
We have recently teamed up with Humble Bundle/Store who are setting up a pre order page for us which will once we are ready for steam release will send you a code straight away to activate on steam. We are still releasing 0.10 to our current testers/backers which is a group of under 20 - 30 people, you will likely see streams come up over time of them testing and playing the game. We will release the game on the store page for 0.30, this is when all backers on humble will get the game key, also your name in the credits for supporting us, once you back on humble join our discord to get your backer rank for access to the backer chat! A big shoutout to JB from the Survive The Nights team who answered all our questions on this system and how to avoid getting into trouble. Many thanks and be sure to check out their game, its amazing! Thats all for this update and once again thank you all so much for the ongoing support, it really means alot. DISCORD.GG/AFTERSHOCK Kind Regards, FOCUS STUDIOS EDIT: Do note that the pre order price is $14.99USD where as the early access price will be $19.99USD as planned.

CHANGE OF PLANS - The Pre Order System has Changed #AFTERSHOCK

Hello Everyone, You may have remembered in the last update us mentioning the pledge/pre order system. It has now been changed based on User feedback.
The game on steam will now cost $19.99USD with a 10% discount on launch. (Previously 14.99USD) You will be able to in the near future (2 - 3 weeks expected) be able to pay $14.99 USD on our website to enter the premium testing team chat and get access to the game as soon as you pay. The reason for the change is this, You would be buying into an early product, buying it early means you still have to deal with bugs and testing the game iteself, the price of this system will raise up over time up to $19.99USD as the versions rise up to the Steam release. Our store info will also be changed in the next day or so to fit to these new changes. We plan on doing this so that you can feel like you are getting your moneys worth instead of paying $25.00USD+ when you could wait for 6 months to get the game for way cheaper on launch. Hope you all understand and if you have any problems with this system please let us know! Kind Regards Sam

AFTERSHOCK - Update #7 - ROAD TO 0.10 BUS SHOWCASE

ATTENTION SURVIVORS
Welcome to Update #7, we have some new things to share with you all. You may also have noticed that the updates havent been weekly, this is because sometimes we have a week of just bug fixes which wont be to exciting for you all to read about, whereas we have some weeks which may be full of exciting new content to share about, we will try to post updates as often as we can for you all but the best place to stay up to date is our discord and the trello board which you can find here: https://discord.gg/rhdQn9t https://trello.com/b/GVE8y4E1/aftershock-progress-to-v010 We also now have a twitch channel! https://www.twitch.tv/focusstudios
ROAD TO 0.10
0.10 is the build in which we officially have our tester go and find any bugs we havent found ourselves, we also want to clarify that 0.10 is a big update for us, the biggest one we have had yet. We will hopefully have some of our testers streaming for you. BUT... Please note that the following streams you would see are of VERY early version of the Game, we do not expect to release to steam till 0.40 or 0.50 and for some of you that may sound far away but we are still on track for releasing in 2018. We will also opening a pledge/pre order page on our official website! Now before grabbing your pitchforks hear us out. The Pre-Order/Pledge system works like this: $14.99 USD - FULL GAME KEY ON LAUNCH - 2 DAYS EARLIER ACCESS - YOUR NAME IN THE CREDITS $25.00+ USD - FULL GAME KEY ON LAUNCH - ACCESS TO THE PREMIUM CHAT ON DISCORD - ACCESS TO THE GAME TESTING GROUP - YOUR NAME IN THE CREDITS By paying for the game early you will gain access to the game 2 days early and your name in the credits, but if you pay/donate more you will gain access to the testing team where you will work along side the team and other pledgers in helping us find bugs and helping pave the game in the correct direction. We really want to do this to get that perfect community feel of the game out there. We always read your discussions and posts, our discord is very active and we are so glad to get all of your wonderful input/feedback. Do note that we only reccomend paying for the game early if you are doing it because your interesting in the game and supporting the team by helping us gain the funds to push the game further by hiring more artists, programmers & general freelancers. Thank You, Calvin, Martin & Sam of Focus Studios.
BUS SHOWCASE
We have recently been working on vehicles for AFTERSHOCK, we asked the community what they would like to see out of a vehicle system, someone said it would be awesome to drive a bus and have it be able to be filled up by players. So we did just that. The following is a WIP and is custom to change: The other idea was to allow players to run freely in certain vehicles that would allow it without them glitching out and flying across the map. We managed to get that working meaning we plan on adding vehicles like an RV which would have storage in it and other utilities which the player could use while someone else drives. If you have any ideas please let us know!
Thats all for Update #7!
Kind Regards, Focus Studios.
