Patreon backers now have access to a post detailing the preliminaries of the new Meta system!
Fri, 23 Dec 2016 20:01:32
Quick updates, since we’ve been a little quiet:
- 2.5′s Character creation is coming along well. There’s currently five primary stats you can adjust, that have a bearing on around twenty minor stats (this number is probably going to increase!) that have upper and lower bounds depending on which role you select.
- Alchemy system is being experimented with and the results are extremely promising - coupled with the code mutation system, we think this is a viable replacement for what’s currently ingame.
- A new effects system is in the works for all areas of the game that use them - weapons, consumables and traits alike. The large number of effects should make strife more interesting…
- Elsewhere is also coming along quite well. Patreon backers will get more info on that soon.
I’m also going to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas - see you in the new year!

v2 will go down in 2 hours for some maintenance. We don’t expect it to take too long! Updates, as usual, will be done in the Discord.

At the end of October we set up our Patreon, and now, a month and a half later, we’re happy to announce that we’ve officially reached our first goal, and are breaking even!
Now that we aren’t simply managing debt, there’s time, and more importantly, money for us to make a budget. (Even if it is, at the time of writing this, a $7 budget.) We’ve already planned ahead creatively— with a roadmap covering five or so games, it’s time for us to start thinking about buying a van.
What does this mean? It means we’ve updated our Patreon with a new set of goals. To ensure the quality of our products, we’ll need quality equipment and staff to back up our ideas. Some of these goals may seem lofty, but with the strength of our community, we are sure we can reach them with your support. If everyone currently in The Overseer Project Discord donated $2 a month, we’d immediately reach our final goal!
However, even if we don’t manage to reach these goals, we still feel the need to say: Thank You. Not just to our patrons, but to everyone who has supported us these past four years. None of us expected our coding-experiment of a fangame to go so far and bring together so many people - 40,000 at it’s peak - but we’re excited to see what the next chapter, and with it, the next game, will have in store.
- The Overseer Project Staff
P.S. - Since we’ve hit the $75 mark, when 2.5 comes out, we’ve decided that it - and any other web-based games - will be ad free. Permanently.

2.5 development is now in full swing! VIP mode will be enabled for Patreon backers in the next couple of weeks.

We just posted a tech demo for Elsewhere to Patreon. If you’re backing us with $10, you’ll have access to it.
Let us know what you think!

Elsewhere is a simple platformer with a focus on teleportation and storytelling. Your signature ability is a short-range limited-use teleport that you’ll need to use to circumvent obstacles, avoid deadly attacks, and even defeat enemies by appearing on top of them!
Expect a nonstandard array of platforming challenges, copious amounts of dodging, telefragging, boss battles, and a few surprises. As for the storytelling…
…well, that would be telling. You’ll just have to wait and see.
Our Patreon backers will recieve additional info and development previews at regular intervals over the next month, with the information there being made public at some point afterwards.

Waiting for a reason to back the Patreon? $1 backers will recieve extra information on Tuesday’s announcement, while $2 and up backers will receive some exclusive in-development previews!

After some long, hard thinking and multiple requests we’ve finally gone ahead and decided - we’re setting up a Patreon!
Now that development is under way of three seperate games, we think the time is ripe to set this up. What are these games? Well, you’re familiar with one, and we’re announcing the second one soon.
Of course, we want to give back to you guys for helping us out and sticking with us, so there’s some rewards there we think are pretty good! Check it out and hop in the Discord if you have any questions, the first set of Patreon exclusive content will be posted some time next week. There’ll also be a brand new account management interface you can use to link up your Patreon account to and get easy access to all the rewards (this is almost complete, just working out a couple of kinks).
Oh, and did I say soon? I meant on Tuesday. That’s when we’re announcing the new game.
