    A visual feast!

    As we approach the release of the Town Square, it's time to start showing off! Identity's gameplay is unique; there's no game in the world which accomplishes what we've set out to create and as a result, this will be one of the most immersive gaming experiences available. In some senses, graphics weigh heavily on environmental immersion and we've really started to show Identity's beauty in this last week.

    Last week, we did a short live stream on Twitch to show off the Town Square in motion. If you weren't there for the stream, check out the details below.

    In addition to Identity's artistic beauty, we also want to show you what the base gameplay will be like in the Town Square. We do plan on doing another stream shortly where we'll move on into the interiors and interact with some of the features you'll find when you log into the Town Square.

    We'll have to mute the karaoke and streaming radio elements for Twitch and YouTube, though. I really do wish we had more time in our last stream but we were an hour late getting the stream started and what was meant to be a 10 minute display ended up being half an hour long. Half of that time was spent in character creation, so if that's of any interest to you be sure to check out the stream. I'll leave the video below.

    Ash Hill's Town Square at night

    With our next gameplay stream, I'd really like to show off the Town Square at night. Check out the screenshot above to see why I feel that night in Identity has an incredible atmosphere. Night will be useful in Identity too; for example, some animals will be more active when the sun goes down.

    Just imagine running from (or with) the cops in the dark of night! A beautiful and well-designed environment makes great gameplay even better.

    Ash Hill's fruit and vegetable market

    As you can tell by now, I went a bit overboard taking screenshots of the Town Square environment. I'm so proud with what our art team has accomplished, so you're getting a handfull with this developer blog!

    The market seen here is in the Town Square, although it won't be the only food market in Ash Hill. Markets play a fairly important role, and not only for your own access to food. Gathering and growing food will be a safe and reliable way to make some money in Identity. It doesn't require any sort of investment, so it's one of your options for making a living the moment you step foot in the world. It will get much easier with a vehicle, though.

    RIDE bicycle shop

    The screenshot above is from the interior of the bicycle store you'll find in the Town Square. You won't be able to buy them right away, but once we start implementing our final vehicles we'll likely unlock the bikes in the Town Square, too.

    Bicycles will be an important tool in Identity. If you can't afford a vehicle (they're not cheap) then they're your best option for getting around town without dishing out cash for a cab.

    Ash Hill Tattoo interior

    My final screenshot today was the interior of the tattoo shop you'll find in the center of Ash Hill, and thus the Town Square. Hidden in the back of the parking lot behind the DMV, this parlor will be opening shortly after the Town Square release.

    Tattoos in Identity are either paid for or earned; some tattoos are only unlocked with achivements, most of which being for less than legal actions. Tattoos aren't available during character creation and must be gotten through a shop such as this.

    YouTube Town Square preview stream

    If you missed our live stream of Town Square gameplay last week, click on that big image above to check it out now. If your email client is afraid and you don't see the images, you can always click here.

    I spent the first while creating a character and then took a quick look around the exterior of the Town Square environment. I can't wait to show more!

    The tasks at hand

    Our new task tracker has been one of the most well received additions we've ever released, and it's very easy to see why.

    As the Asylum developers continue to knock out tasks daily, we're getting very, very close to allowing you all into the Town Square. As of my writing this, only 3 primary tasks remain and are already in progress.

    The tracker is showing only Town Square tasks, although many of those in our team (who don't have anything left for the Town Square release) are already hard at work producing SWAT module content. It won't be long before you start seeing a lot of our SWAT efforts appearing, and I'm extremely excited to give you more information on how it'll play.

    Keep your eyes on the tracker, as it will continue (even after Town Square release) to be the best indicator of when you can get your taste.

    A quick thank you to our supporters

    We've been working hard to create the game that can, quite seriously, affect the entire MMORPG industry. Nothing like Identity has been done before, mostly because a game of this scale is a risky project for any established studio.

    It is because of you receiving this update, our pledgers and supporters, that our dreams and ambitions are becoming a reality. The ultimate RPG is on the horizon, and I'm so very grateful to the wonderful community around me.

    Again, I just want to say thank you as I sincerely appreciate your support. You're helping to create a game which thousands, who don't even know we're here yet, will come to enjoy. You're here on the ground floor.

    The Twitch Clips

    Bitte melden Sie sich an, um dieses Bild zu sehen.

    If you've been following Identity's development closely, you probably already know that developers stream their work live on the Identity Twitch channel every Tuesday and Thursday. We also use that time to answer almost every question that gets asked about Identity's development and gameplay.

    Now that we've been doing this a while, we've answered a lot of questions. Our awesome community manager, BeachBall, has taken the time to compile a massive list of questions linked to clips where they're answered by a developer.

    Get comfy and head over to the Twitch Clips Directory forum thread. If you haven't found this already, be prepared to spend a good bit of time listening to all sorts of awesome information. This is the best place to get to know the fine details Identity!

    Nein wird es nicht, weder deutsch noch andere Sprachen außer Englisch.

    Das habe ich aber anders in Erinnerung. Ich habe irgendwo gehört / gelesen, dass sie die gängigsten Sprachen wohl schon bereitstellen wollen.

    Werdet ihr aktiv auf einem offiziellen Server spielen bis private ermöglicht sind ? (Mit nur englischen Leuten im schlimmsten Fall)

    Ich werde auf jeden Fall mal reinschauen. Wenn es nur englisch sprachige Server geben sollte, wird aber wohl dann weniger sein.

    Sehr geehrte Community

    Wer sich bereits damit befasst hat, wird wissen, was die sog. "DSGVO" ist.

    Auch wir nehmen den Datenschutz und die neuen Bestimmungen sehr ernst, weshalb wir zwei neue Funktionen in das Forum integriert haben:

    • DSGVO Daten-Export
    • IP-Adressen löschen

    DSGVO Daten-Export

    Bitte melden Sie sich an, um diesen Anhang zu sehen.

    Gemäss Artikel 20 DSGVO müssen Webseitenbetreiber auf Anfrage eine maschinenlesbare Kopie der gespeicherten Daten eines Nutzers zur Verfügung stellen.

    Um uns dies ein wenig zu erleichtern, haben wir der Benutzerkontoverwaltung eine neue Funktion hinzugefügt. Ab sofort könnt ihr bei Bedarf einen Datensatz herunterladen. Dort seht ihr sämtliche Informationen, die gerade über euch gespeichert sind.

    Wichtiger Hinweis: Solltet ihr euren Forumaccount mit Steam verbunden haben, müsst ihr diese Verknüpfung vorher trennen. Wir können keine Informationen von Steam zur Verfügung stellen. Dazu müsst ihr euch an den Drittanbieter wenden.

    IP-Adressen löschen

    Ebenfalls ist der Bestandteil der DSGVO dieser, dass diverse personenbezogene Daten nur einen bestimmten Zeitraum und mit Begründung gespeichert werden. Aus diesem Grund haben wir im Hintergrund eine Funktion aktiviert, die uns erlaubt, dass IP-Adressen nach 7 Tagen gelöscht werden. Wir gehen davon aus, dass bei einer strafrechtlichen Verfolgung die Mindestdauer von 7 Tagen aktuell kein rechtliches Problem darstellen soll (genaue Informationen hierüber können wir aktuell der DSGVO nicht entnehmen).

    Wir werden weiterhin eure Daten so gut es geht schützen und haben aus diesem Grund diese neuen Funktionen eingeführt. Solltet ihr Fragen hierzu haben, könnt ihr uns jeder Zeit eine E-Mail an: [email protected] senden.

    Ausser Supernatural kenne ich keine einzige Serie.

    Derzeit habe ich keine Serie die ich verfolge, da ich mich erstmal darum kümmere alle Marvel Filme nachzuholen (Bis vor einer Woche kannte ich keinen einzigen!)

    Sowas gibt es? ^^ Ich bin gerade auch nicht jemand, der jeden einzelnen Film schauen muss, aber den ein oder anderen Film kennt man schon.
