Latest Dev Update

v0.5.3 Bugfix Update #9

Today's patch consists of some more bugfixes along with a few new weapons. And some general tweaks to gameplay balancing reducing some spawn rates and such. There are also some new crafting recipes and wolves now have the chance to be stunned upon being hit giving you a chance to deal damage without taking any from the wolf yourself.

What's new?

- Campfires now allow you to cook all types of meat by standing close by and accessing the crafting menu

- Campfires now show an icon when you are close enough to cook something

- Fixed a bug causing loot bags dropped by bears saying it has dropped from a wolf

- Wolves now have a chance to stagger when hit disabling them from attacking for a short time

- Added wooden spear (ID 214)

- Added knife (ID 215)

- Added shiv (ID 216)

- Increased spawn rates for common items

- Decreased spawn rates for rare items

- Wolves now drop cloth and small amounts of leather

- Fixed a bug causing the bear death animation to loop

- Enabled vehicle spawns in all military locations

- Fixed a bug causing animals to continue to damage you after they are killed

Thanks to those who have reported bugs in the Discord and helped to make the game better for everyone.

The Developer

Hey everyone, you probably don't know who I am so here you go. I go by the screen name of Danstarr13, I'm 18 and I live in Australia. I started getting into game design in 2014 and am the sole developer for my game "The Parallax Effect" (in other words I'm an indie dev). I have made this website to showcase how it looks so far and what is currently being done in terms of development (bearing in mind the game is in the very early stages of pre-alpha). Have a look around and check everything out to see if you like it. There will always be a download for the latest version of the game for both Windows and Mac on the downloads page. Anyway, thanks for visiting my website, and be sure to share it to anyone you know who might be interested in my game to help spread the word, I'd really appreciate it!

Powered By Unreal Engine 4

The Parallax Effect was chosen to be developed using Epic Games' Unreal Engine 4. It has proven to be an excellent choice for the game and should hopefully continue to be. So far development is looking great! At the moment you can expect fortnightly updates after the initial few releases. Keep checking the website for frequent development updates and news that I will post above as often as possible. The latest development blog is always on the front page of the site (this page) right up the top! You can even click the back to top button below if you're too lazy to scroll up.
