Hey people, I'd like to share some good news about the game I've been working for the past 3 years. It got a publisher, teaser trailer and a Steam page:


Quote:

INSOMNIA is a complex story-driven RPG that takes place on a colossal space metropolis brimming with the secrets of a long-gone civilization. Develop your character, explore lovingly handcrafted locations, interact with peculiar NPCs and factions, craft equipment and try to stay alive.

You awaken on Object 6 - a retro-futuristic space station set on a 400-year journey in search of a new home. Stricken with a rare psychological disease, you have to uncover macabre secrets and the truth behind humanity’s journey to the ghost-like Evacuation Point.
Exploration is rewarding…and dangerous
Search for valuable technology and resources in the confines of Object 6. Pay attention - INSOMNIA’s nuanced world can conceal unexpected quests from treacherous characters, as well as savage enemies and deadly hazards. Hunger, thirst, fatigue and hostile environments will be your main companions throughout this journey.

Strategic real-time combat
INSOMNIA features both close and ranged combat, as well as destroyable covers. Choose your gear wisely - every armor and weapon type in the game has its own tactical virtues and shortcomings.

Personalized journey
Break free from character classes and unwanted grind with a flexible perk system combined with a huge amount of craftable items and equipment for an experience unique to every player.

Your choices matter
INSOMNIA offers an intricate, non-linear storyline with ‘points of no return’. Navigate a system of thorny relations with characters and factions and make tough decisions that affect the game world. Each major problem can be solved using a variety of different (and sometimes unexpected) solutions.

A rich universe
Experience the game’s rich lore through retro-futuristic noir visuals with elements of dieselpunk. Witness man-made apocalyptic landscapes imbued with a dark noir jazz soundtrack and echoes of a decaying civilization.


Here's the teaser trailer and the Steam page.

So after looking through it the game seems incomplete as far as English translations go, so waiting a few weeks for an update might be the way to go. Wouldn't do me any good to play a game that I wouldn't understand. That said I already own ATOM RPG and it does the same thing some times so I'm not incredibly picky.

Triple post: Bought it, really like it barring a few strange design options like how you can only free-aim on a Y-axis with the gun and not being able to rebind keys at all. Barring the translation errors it's a pretty solid game so far. Felt good when I killed a guy in power armor with a starter sword. Was rolling all around him like a Dark Souls character. Could kill me in two punches.

Sweet. I'll be picking it up in a few days. Good to know it's not too rough.

Seems like there's some broken quests that I ran into about 20 hours into the game. There's yet to be an update to fix those despite the devs saying otherwise, and their indian giving with the deluxe edition really rubs me the wrong way. If you haven't picked it up already I'd suggest waiting.
