2008-01 Thursday 3rd, Preview extravaganza and part two of our dev diary.

To get the new year rolling we have a bunch of previews to report about, suiting for English as well as German speaking readers. So far the overall tone in the previews keep it positive!

IGN.com -English

Avault.com -English

Gamevortex.com -English

Gbase.ch -German

Gamecaptain.de -German

Part two in our developers diary talks about the voice acting in Penumbra: Black Plague as well as various technical issues and solutions. Read it here!

RE: 2008-01 Thursday 3rd, Preview extravaganza and part two of our dev diary.

Someone please edit that post above to remove the possible spoiler.

IGN has several storyline spoilers, along with several puzzle spoilers and how to solve them. Most however seem to be spoiling only the beginning of the game, but there is a major one about a charecter you will 'meet'.

Adrenaline vault has several spoilers once again; the same basic puzzle solutions from above, and referring to the same person you 'meet'. You get a very good description of the beginning environment, but it also spoils when you meet your first enemy.

Gamevortex is hardly worth a read. No spoilers, but it doesn't really tell you anything about black plague. He rambles on and on about the physics, and how they relate to Tresspasser; but other than that and 2 sentences saying "Game is great, great atmosphere, buy buy buy" you don't learn anything about it.



But even with the spoilers, they're a great read. Spoiler contains 3 new pictures found in GameCaptain.
Spoiler below!

Please -REP me.

Ignore that error message too. Just ignore it and keep going to give me -rep.

From Adrenaline Vault...

Minimum Requirements: 1 GHz processor; 256 MB RAM; Radeon 8500 or GeForce 3 (GeForce4 MX not supported); Windows 2000 or XP

I'm gonna assume Linux is supported too? As for the release date, is this pretty much certain now?

At first, only windows was supported on overture's launch. However, they did have plans on getting Overture onto other systems; linux and mac now have Overture. So expect the same trend. You might not be able to play it for the first few weeks (I can send you PMs telling my joy in playing it though :-D). A fictional dev can help you out much more than I can.

Please -REP me.

"GeForce4 MX not supported" Does this mean that it will not run on my GeForce 9200? I dont understand modern hardware names very well Sad.

If Overture worked with it, then this works too.

... even better in fact. And I think you were talking about Radeon 9200 up there, since g-force 9 series don't yet exist as far as I know. Tongue

Oh, yeah! You're right. Smile

By the way, from the first picture that WindexGlow have posted...

Spoiler below!
...I think that he gets up in that point and starts to find where you are. (Like he tries to find you in the Teaser)
