What we did…
- Development Testing
Already released and available to buy via Steam, Red Kite Games were asked to stabilise and debug the game. This required a complete restructuring of the project, the implementation of a robust auto-testing system and a comprehensive rewrite of multiple core systems including the game’s online functionality:
- Created multiple versioned builds to handle development, shipping, Windows server and Linux server deployment. This also included direct deployment to Steam.
- Significantly reduced the build size whilst fixing up all known engine dependencies.
- Stabilised the game and its dedicated server setup.
- Implemented automated build deployment and testing procedures.
We were then tasked with adding and improving a variety of different gameplay features within the game:
- HUD and UI.
- Player progression.
- The crafting tree.
ROKH is a futuristic survival game, deeply rooted in scientific and realistic anticipation.
Players will have to work together to overcome the many threats they will have to face on planet Mars.
ROKH is an adaptive survival game that is built on top of Unreal Engine 4 and deeply rooted in science. Players will land on Mars to find that the previously developed human colonies have been decimated and they must work together to overcome and survive. ROKH features a persistent world and co-op multiplayer.
In ROKH, players explore the Martian landscape as they scavenge through the deserted structures to gather the resources they need in order to survive. With few blueprints, they must use their ingenuity to create tools from a variety of materials and construct their own encampments with no design limitations – giving new meaning to “Assembly Required.”
ROKH is a complete immersion into a cold and dry land that harbours a wealth of resources to extract and exploit. Players will explore Mars, paving the way for settlers to come, as Earth’s resources are tapped and the planet is dying. Mars is hostile and joining forces with friends increases efficiency and invites trade and barter to develop a habitable, yet, customised ecosystem. ROKH is a mix of crafting, survival and exploration with an overarching story, that allows to freeform and build a colony how they want.
