It's now time to officially announce the first Demo of Distant Souls!
MEDIAFIRE: PART I, PART II
DROPBOX: SINGLE FILE.
IndieDB: SINGLE FILE.
The game demo went into the Intel Level Up contest, but failed to run **sniff**. So now I need testing & feedback from the community.
I've been around in GD.Net for 6 years and many of you may be familiar with my virtual face as I'm always around the Techie forums.
Specially if you've been around the Ogre forums, you may already know about me, I'm always contribute to the Open Source community, be it Ogre Meshy, Instance Manager, Depth Sharing, or as tech support through forums, without ever asking anything in return.
If you still want to know more about my contributions to OSS, you can google my name and my alias (Dark Sylinc, dark_sylinc).
But this time I have big a favour to ask and get some of that love back. Currently I've been running through some tough financial difficulties, and my bets have been on Distant Souls. Being disqualified from the contest didn't help, while I'm also currently in the process of seeking government funding as well as potential private investors.

Let everyone prove there's big, fun, quality game out there in the Indie scene.
You are not forced to do it, I don't expect you to do it; and it won't reflect my future contributions to Open Source projects, but it will help me. And I will greatly appreciate it
Other ways you can help:
- Does it run in your machine? Post all your 5 Logs, they are in the file %AppData%\Distant Souls. Also post all your *.rpl files there so I can reproduce your bug.
- What do you think about the game?:
- Do you like it?
- Is it fun?
- Was there something you spent too much time to figure out?
- were you stuck?
- Did you enjoy it?
Didn't enjoy it? Then tell me! You won't hurt my feelings! Games are an iterative process. We will work on it as many times as possible until we're all 24hs addicted.
This is valuable feedback and please post your results!
IF YOU OWN AN INTEL HD 3000 PLEASE SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH US!!! I'm 99% sure the game didn't run in the contest because of that GPU, even though, it's ought to be capable to run it.
- Windows XP/Vista/7
- Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz or better/AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+
- 2 GB RAM
- NVIDIA Geforce 8 series or better / ATI Radeon HD 2000 series or better (Shader Model 3.0 compliant with full VTF support)
The following hardware is known not to work. And it's really hard to support them, this list not likely to be reduced:
- ATI Radeon X1000 series
- Intel GMA 950 series
- GeForce 6200 (??? needs confirmation)
Distant Souls takes place in the historical events in Dyrvingahl. Long before the start of the game, a dark being killed Nathan's parents, destroyed his entire village, and started a war between the Three Proud Nations.
15 years later little is known about the dark being and those few who track him down call themselves hunters; each hunting it for it's own personal motive.
Today, the world is in complete turmoil, many factions constantly form alliances to take over cities; lasting their control as short as the alliance was formed; while hunters have to make it's way through to reach their ultimate goal.
Player's hunters will have to face with the decision to involve in local affairs or stay distant as much as they can.
Hope you enjoy it!!
AND THANK YOU!
