Content Update 3 Released
Prague, September 7th, 2022
Nearly two years after its launch, Namalsk is set to receive its final major update – Content Update 3. This update brings a conclusion to the much appraised background story and adds depth into the interstellar quest, introduced with the previous update. New locations, gameplay mechanics, unique pressure suit, massive soundtrack update and much more.
After many months of anticipation, the Phoenix rig has arrived to the coast of Namalsk. If you have been following the teasers (Phoenix stories, available here on website) over the past few weeks, you know that the crew of this rig has contributed significantly in opening the flood gates to Lantia and right now, it is your turn to follow their tracks and learn more about this mysterious extra-terrestrial place. Phoenix stories is an important addition to the game as it ties some loose ends, allowing players to learn about the story and possible paths to take in a much more meaningful way than before (lore information is much more connected with what players can do within the environment). And before you ask – yes, Phoenix stories hints are now part of the gameplay (rather than social media posts).
If you want to get a deeper look into the development of this update (contains spoilers), head over to Making of Phoenix blog post! Special shout out goes to Bubson, Creep, Gormirn, Windstride and my brother for their contributions in this update.
What is next?
First of all, let me say that it has been an amazing journey and I would like to thank to everyone for the amazing support you have provided over the years. I would like to also thank to all of the contributors as well as anyone who supported, submitted a feedback or reported a bug on Namalsk Discord.
As I have already teased before, this update is the last big update for Namalsk. This means that any development of big additions and changes will no longer start. I feel like what has been achieved within this content update works great as an ending to the whole story as well as provides a rich environment full of tools to interact with each other.
The fact that big update development stopped does not mean I am abandoning Namalsk. I will continue providing support in terms of bug fixing and balancing while also making sure Namalsk contains all the new goodies that every base game update brings, usually with some Namalsk spice added to it.
To answer the initial question though.. I like to keep my brain busy. I am thinking about writing a novel as well as resuming work on my sci-fi RTS game. Keep an eye on this space or my Twitter if you are interested what is next for me and catch me on my Twitch channel, streaming random stuff from time to time.
As always, if you would like to support me in the work I am doing and/or whatever I will be working on in the future, you can do so through a yellow button below this article or on a following link. Thank you! See you in the frozen wasteland, survivor.
