    This one sounds really good and I think it will actually be quite nice to play one without enemies. Tried copying the info from the web page.

    About the game
    [​IMG]

    You crashed your space-ship on an unknown planet … not a smart move!
    Can you survive the planet, and find a way of?.. perhaps by using the residual technology left behind an ancient advanced race?

    RESIDUAL is a survival platformer, with crafting, light puzzling, and exploration.
    An adventure game free of guns, weapons and violence.

    Gameplay
    [​IMG]

    RESIDUAL throws you onto a procedurally generated planet, with no humanoid lifeforms. Your task? Survive! – Explore caves, scavenge, craft, fish, pluck, chop, climb, jump, push, pull, solve puzzles, and survive!

    Stumble into the remnants of an ancient (technology) civilization and see if you can dig up the residual technology and possibly fix your space ship and escape the planet!

    YOU vs NATURE
    [​IMG]
    The game is build on Orangepixel’s new Nature engine, where the whole planet is procedurally generated based on nature-rules.
    Sunlight, heat or coldness, vegetation or sand, darkness or brightness it will all dictate what type of life lives on the planet, how it survives on the planet, and the resources available to hopefully escape the planet.

    You might find yourself on a lush green planet in one game session, but on a dry, hot barren world the next. Or perhaps an ice-cold planet where keeping some fire going will be the main focus of survival.

    The game will always hand you the tools to survive and escape, but the placement, the shape, and the usage of those tools will vary vastly from game to game!

    Hey folks! - wasn't aware this post thread was made back when I announced Residual :) Took some time to finally dig into the mobile version due to many reasons.. BUT the iOS (and Android) versions are coming!

    Wanted to update this thread with some new visuals and info
    First some new GIF's:

    The game has been live on both PC and Switch for some months now, and I'm about to push a big new update that improves the whole inventory interface and also the "flow of the game" at the start of a new game - should help ease players into the world of Residual.

    The game is currently running on my (Android) phone and iPad - and I'm adding the required touch-controls for all the various interface screens the game has. I'd say it's 90% up and running !

    It's been almost two years since my last mobile-game release, so I do have to check some stuff with the latest versions of iOS and supporting the new devices out there :) but I'm sure I can find some testers on here when I'm ready.

    For now, if you want to check out more about the game: https://orangepixel.net/residual or come chat about it over on discord.gg/orangepixel

    It’s looking great. Thanks for putting the effort to keep supporting the platform.

    Please reach out if you’re looking for an iPhone tester!

    Bought it the day one on Steam (as every other game from @orangepascal ), sinked hours and hours exploring those planets and if it’s coming to iOS it should be a no-brainer and insta-buy for everyone, especially with the little annoyances ironed out already (I remember the first version where you had to pick up your teleport device manually and it was pretty common to forget it somewhere, lol).

    Anyway, looking forward to it. It’ll be awesome to experience it on iPad.

    Those of you (like me) who have the entire OrangePixel catalog should go to their website and sign up for their free e-books. How cool is that!

    Little update on the status of Residual, and I'm happy to say.. it's REALLY CLOSE to done

    [​IMG]

    Got it up and running on iOS and Android, and achievements are also implemented.. It's just a matter of fixing some minor things left and right, my goal is to submit to Apple this week, and then hopefully start some testing in the coming weeks (I'll run a call for tester through discord.gg/orangepixel with different i-devices )

    [​IMG]

    Right now tinkering with gamepad support (I can't release a game without !)

    [​IMG]

    But I also managed to keep the touch-controls simple and not too overwhelming.. Of course, as I do with all my games, these buttons are customizable: from placement to transparency and different sizes!

    [​IMG]

    Everything else is fully running! And updated to the latest release on PC and Switch - so all the quality-of-life updates are in there ;)

    Bit more waiting, but it's almost done!


    Yes! Go there! :D as you will also get access to the Residual manual for FREE - which might give you a little advantage when crashing on planets when the game releases ;)

    Happy to say that Residual is now available for PRE-ORDER with a discount for the early supporters!
    Link: https://apps.apple.com/app/residual/id1635302755

    Game has been throw a bunch of testing, different devices, improved the controls as much as possible, and of course it also has gamepad support. It's a breeze to play on my old iPad, and already escaped from my first planet ! (which is a couple of hours gaming - and that is with me knowing what to do).

    With hundreds of different planets, over 3000 different creatures to detect for your database a hundred trinkets to find, and many messages from old civilization to unlock, all while exploring and surviving on the planets.. there's a lot of gameplay in this small bundle! so PRE-ORDER ! :)

    @orangepascal how well does it work on iPhone with touch controls? Although I can’t really not order it after creating this thread because I was excited about it.

    I managed to get controls down to:

    LEFT/RIGHT buttons and A/X buttons on the right side of the screen (default setting, you can move them anywhere)
    A mostly used to interact with things and X mostly used to jump/move upwards

    [​IMG]

    with two smaller buttons for opening your inventory or your visor (planet-scanner)

    Button size has 3 settings, transparency changes from fully-visible to almost invisible

    [​IMG]

    I think it plays fairly intuitive, and if you're used to controls like this from other games, then you shouldn't have much problems exploring the planets!

    Got an invite to pre-order and jumped right on. Also don't forget that they have free PDF manuals for their games, including this one. Check their website.
