Default Barren Roads: Multiplayer Apocalypse Fallout/DayZ Survival Game iOS

Hi. We are happy to announce an upcoming survival game for iOS: Survival: Barren Roads. We have been developing this game for quite some time. Its DayZ set in an apocalyptic fallout universe.

Media:

Early development vid for multiplayer. I intentionally left the battery warning to show you that it is built on an iOS device. I've fixed synching issues since this video was released. You won't see choppy character positions in the current build. Its important for us to have at least an exceptional multiplayer LAN on launch.

The UI is for testing purposes. The UI and graphical settings will be available for the player to modify.

I will transfer other media from our other development sites here as time permits. You will see the awesome development builds as well as unpolished alpha builds.

Apologies for the sample youtube video quality.

Summary:

Nuclear weapons have the left the world barren and scorched the earth. Survival has never been harder for mankind. Resources are scarce as life has left this world. You are forced to constantly move and scavenge the next area for resources. Rivers are dry. Many of wanderers never survived the icy nights as the moon crosses the sky. Roam a massive streaming map featuring ruined highways and cities. Survive and outwit other survivors, like yourself. Scavenge, loot, and explore during the day and find shelter during the freezing nights. Beware of the beasts and unknown as the sun sets.

Current gameplay features already included in the current build:

Multiplayer will be included. LAN 100% works exceptionally.
Permadeath.
Random event system for a different experience every play
Smart Enemy AI - who search, flee, find cover, and patrol/scavenge areas with Astar Navigation.

Line of sight and hearing enabled.

Custom made map streaming system that manages RAM and CPU.
Huge streaming map - if you can see it. You can walk to it.
The early alpha video shows one section of 50. A massive content filled world. Likely the largest on the appstore.

Tons of areas to explore: towns, distant houses, bases.
Weather system included.
Player needs: health, hunger, thirst, shelter.
Optimized audio. Hear muffled gunshots if your indoors.
Full day and night cycle.
Inventory backpack system
30+ firearms
15+ melee weapons
Character armor.
Customizable weapons: scopes and silencers.
Craft-able weapons.
Hunting system - animals spawn into only certain areas defined by their behavior. Learn these areas to find success hunting.
Crafting and fortify shelters - work in progress/still needs work. Might not be in initial build.
Loot, gather resources, and scavenge ruined towns, wrecks, vehicles, and more.
and much, much, much more...

Do you have what it takes to stay alive?

Expected release 2014.

Everything we mentioned is in game already and expandable.

Support and builds currently work for iPhone4s and iPad2 with iOS 7. We currently test for iPad2 and build up. Optimized for iPhone 5 and above. Check back here for updates or follow us on twitter:

I have been waiting for an open world multiplayer game!!

And the Post-Apocalyptic setting is an awesome idea. Keep up the good work I'll definitely be excited to see future progress on this!

hi

We have a number of testers who have been very good to us in promoting and testing our previous games. We are going to extend the invitation to them first. However, there are some combination of devices and operating system that we still might need testing on and may ask for some additional testers. At the moment, I am not certain.

Thanks for the comments.

Alright awesome! If you do end needing more people I'd definitely love to help. Keep up the great work!

Sadly, yes. We didn't stray from the zombie survival formula on this one. Zombie AI, where they patrol and mindlessly charge is the easiest to make. That's likely why there are so many zombie games out there. However, because of the size and scope of our game, its still quite time consuming to ensure each area is properly set up for the AI.

We also have computer controlled human survivor AI. We felt this was a nice complement for those who just want to play single player.

We are still balancing the AI for multiplayer. As we hope the best antagonist for multiplayer will be other players themselves. As it will always be more challenging and entertaining to compete and outwit live human players then bots.

Thanks for you excitement!!!
