Update on Beta version 26 Sept 2017

Hi everyone,

The good news is that the game is currently in Beta testing, so very close to be release. But as it is quite long to make a full playthrough, it takes more time to test and fix issues.

This is why the game will not launch this week but will be postponed in few weeks later. At the moment it is the 30th of November but it could be sooner. I'll make an update with the final release date one week before knowing it.

In the meanwhile here are some new screenshots taken from the new stuff implemented in the game and the list below of what has changed since last update:

- Added 84 Steam Achievements.

- Added 8 Steam Cards to collect.
- Added Steam Badges.
- Finished menus and loading screen.
- Added storm weather system in the night cycle.
- Added water ripples on water in caves.
- Added more enemies on the map and in Mayan sites.
- Added mosquitos areas that hurt the player when collecting crafting ressources.
- Added a teleportation button.
- Added vehicles respawn button.
- Jump is changed to "press space bar".
- Cold and warm blured effect is clear close to player to 10 meters aways, after 10 meters the vision is blured.
- Added ice on screen when too cold.
- Added many tutorial screens to help the player to understand the game mechanics and shortcuts, at the beginning and through the game.
- Added ambient sounds in different areas.
- Added music tracks.
- Added ambient music.
- Adjustment of the crafting elements.
- Adjustment of the survival elements.
- Vehicles adjustments.
- Testing and bug fixing.

UAYEB is an indie game made by only one person, thank you for your understanding and for your support.

June - 20th - 2017:
Thanks for all your feedbacks on the demo. A lot of things will be changed in the game thanks to you.

This is why the decision was taken to delay the release date until September. These extra months will be used to polish the game to bring you a better experience in UAYEB.
Thank you for your understanding.

TIP 04: Drinking

Before drinking water somewhere, fill up a bottle and check the color to be sure that it is drinkable.
Then you can drink from a water point, by pressing the «X» key several times to fill up your thirst bar.
Always keep your empty bottles filled up with fresh water before you go on expedition.

May - 31st - 2017:
Tip 03: Inventory Shortcuts

You have few shortcut keys to access quickly your inventory:
On a QUERTY keyboard:

E = Open the laptop Inventory

The following keys are the inventory Tabs:

R = Map
T = Crafting
Y = Artifacts
U = Music

The following keys are the Crafting Tabs:

F = Vehicle
G = Health
H = Ammunition
J = Accessory

A big thank to Aveyn Toh, Content Manager & Editor at Pikoya, for her UAYEB interview and article at:

A big thank to Xavier Rousselle, founder and director of Isart Digital - Video game and 3D VFX Film School, for its incredible comments and compliments on UAYEB graphics.

A big thank to Masatomo Tajima, Sound designer on many great games (Resident Evil 6, Lost Planet 2, and many more), for its amazing comments on UAYEB sound design.

It was a great pleasure to meet you all at Casual Connect Singapore and it was incredible to hear your compliments.

May - 26th - 2017:
TIP 02: Stamina

When your stamina level is down, stop runnning or you will lose health.
The warning red icon on the bottom left of your screen will show you when to stop pressing the Shift key.

It is the same underwater, if you swim fast for too long you will lose health as your stamina will be down.
Check the oxigen bar on the top of your screen, when it reatches the stamina icon, then you can swim faster by pressing Shift.

May - 24th - 2017:
TIP 01: Saving

The bad news is that you will die a lot.
The good news is that you will manage your progress yourself, and you will be able to save anywhere at any time.

F5 is the Quick Save key in the game.

May - 22nd - 2017:
The UAYEB free demo is now available on Steam!

You will play 2 to 4 hours of the begining of the game, with puzzles, exploration, a bit of crafting and you'll try to find the first Mayan artifact in gold, avoiding deadly traps.

We will be at the place number 1028 to welcome you!

April - 26th - 2017:
As you probably know, UAYEB is developed by one person only  and thus on only one computer. The reason for that is purelly a lack of budget of course.

A bad thing has happened yesterday, something in the computer burned and it is compromising the release of the game for June 6th.

Fortunately all the game files are safe on a backup hard drive, but to finish and polish the game I will have to make a loan to buy a new machine and reinstall all the needed programs.

So I prefer to delay the release date to deliver a clean and polished version of the game. I hope to be able to have the final version at the end of June, just few extra weeks that were lost due to the computer failure.

The Beta version will still be playable at Casual Connect / Indie Prize Asia, the 16 - 17 - 18 of May in Singapore.

You can also help the project if you can with a donation for buying the new computer:
Help us with a small donation here.

Thank you and keep in touch.

April - 08th - 2017:
