Major control fix lands in Impact Winter

Impact Winter banner

Nip over to the Steam review page for third-person survival RPG Impact Winter [official site] and you’ll notice a storm of red arrows, all saying roughly the same thing. It’s got potential but the controls are broken, rendering it virtually unplayable.

There were a number of issues on release: no mouse support on menus, for example (bizarre), clunky key bindings, and inconsistent controller support. Developers Mojo Bones promised a patch earlier this week, and now it’s here to (hopefully) fix some of the issues players were having.

Impact Winter is out, controls fixes coming

I’m not much one for survival games but I have liked the sound of Impact Winter [official site]. It’s a cute third-person survival RPG where, with the help of some friends, we’re trying to survive in a post-asteroid snowland until help can arrive. And huzzah, it’s now out! And boo, it sounds like the controls are wonked right now. The problems sound fixable and developers Mojo Bones are already working on improvements but ah, I’ll wait and see. What a shame.

Post-asteroid survival RPG Impact Winter delayed

Post-asteroid survival RPG Impact Winter [official site] was due to launch next week, but it won’t. Publishers Bandai Namco have announced a delay of six weeks to give developers Mojo Bones more time to make it all shiny and awful. Which sounds peachy because Impact Winter sounds interesting. It’s a survival game with a definitive end, for one thing, as help will come if you can only survive 30 days – fewer, if you complete certain tasks. And helping you are are a small group of survivors with their own skills and stories. And it has some near-future scrappy shenanigans going on. Here, watch: Read the rest of this entry »

The mewling pup that goes by the name 2017 will come into the world soon and we must prepare ourselves for its arrival. Here at RPS, our preparations come in the form of this enormous preview feature, which contains details on more than a hundred of the exciting games that are coming our way over the next twelve months. 2016 was a good one – in the world of games at least – but, ever the optimists, we’re hoping next year will be even better.

Impact Winter: A Snowball’s Chance

It’s interesting to note that while we absolutely did once have too many WW2 games, and later there certainly were too many zombie-based games, there can never be too many post-apocalyptic survival games. Why? Science can’t yet explain, and theologians have only offered impetuous shrugs. But still they come, and still there’s room. The latest attempt to join this grim-futured desperation for survival is Impact Winter, pitching on Kickstarter for £95,000. It’s an RPG from Mojo Bones, it’s very snowy, and best of all, you have an android companion.
