In our previous developer blog, we covered the importance of outposts and touched on enemy A.I. You can catch up on that blog here. This week we are covering the depth of the branching narrative that you’ll uncover as you play though Ashes of Oahu and the impacts of your choices.

    I would never had guessed to use this as a gaming theme, it's unique and I hope good things for the developers. It looks like it may be fun.

    Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

    Story..yes,grind/purpose...yes but imo it is not doing enough,especially for a single player game.Most single player games are just 30-60 hours or less and file them away forever.This game is trying to create longevity by doing favors for 1-4 factions to get better weapons/skills.
    This whole mindset is sort of against what i want fro ma rpg game.I want the more realistic feel of a survival game,building and hunting and if i come across real players we both choose to be friends or enemies or to simply co exist alongside each other.
    I like elements,weather and plausible realism.

    This game if it did a lot more to support the RPG theme,as well had MANY more factions and without writing a game design essay,just did a lot more for the overall game design,it could be good.
    I see this as being another typical single player game,race through it to beat it then quit playing and never go back to it.Some might argue that decision making leads one to have some replay value ,i don't feel it as it is still a race to overthrow the Raiders and nothing more.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    Axis deer that have spots like that can be found in Hawaii.

    Again, and I repeat, have they ever been to Oahu? Did the deer swim over from Maui and Molokai?

    It's post apocalyptic. So, maybe?
