Deck 13 Interactive’s New Update for ‘The Other 99’ Challenges Survivors with Increased Difficulty & Improved Performance
Major update for first person action survival horror “The Other 99” developed by independent games studio Burning Arrow, now available on Steam Early Access
Independent video games publisher Deck 13 and games development studio Burning Arrow announced today the availability of a brand-new update for ‘The Other 99’ that brings multiple improvements to its game currently downloadable through Steam Early Access. Based on the feedback received from players engaged in previous versions of the action-horror title, Burning Arrow released this update to fix many of the concerns that were expressed while also making it much more challenging to survive the island.
A list of corrections and enhancements developed and implemented in this new version can be found below:
- New Starting Area
- Massively reworked Balancing
- Better interaction for survival with the world (e.g. now you can drink water from rivers, etc..)
- Rework of the Survival Guide (Hunger & Thirst related)
- Overhauled the island with new props populating the environment
- Rework of the combat
“It’s great being able to bring such an important update to The Other 99. We’ve taken a lot of the feedback we received on the early builds of our title and worked hard to improve the game in those areas with a focus on the game’s difficulty. With the new AI system that we have completed, it is no longer easy to avoid and bypass enemies, as fights are now much more challenging.” says Thomas Brown, co-founder of Burning Arrow.
Burning Arrow also released a frightening new trailer to celebrate the release of the update. It shows the intensity that occurs when exploring the dark and unnerving island, and it captures some of the fierce combat and menacing locations featured throughout the game.
