Latest Dev Update

October 16th 2017 (v0.5.0 Is Here!)

Finally, after many months of development v0.5.0 is ready to play! The new update is now currently available for download from the site right now for Windows systems. This major update marks approximately 6 months since v0.1.0 first launched earlier this year. The update mainly focuses on bugfixes from previous versions of the game and also introduces quite a bit of new content most notably being town redesigns, new mutants to accompany the already existing Reaper, 2 new weapons, 2 new vehicles, a basic weather system including rain/storms that occasionally occur and much much more. For full development information please visit the official Trello page. Arguably the most significant addition however is the integration of the online account system with the game itself. This means you can now use your Parallax account and login with it in-game to track stats, access a personal cosmetics inventory and survive together with players online. The option to play offline still remains should you for some reason be unable to create an account but it is highly recommended to create an account to gain access to the full experience of the game. As for future updates, I will be aiming to start releasing patches on a fortnightly basis rather than monthly to speed development progress up. The next update will be v0.5.1 which will be arriving by late October at this stage. Until then, please feel free to download a copy of v0.5.0 and get surviving right now! - Danstarr13

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 now the sole developer for 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.
