After intensive testing by QA and certain community members, we are happy to release today the latest version of ROKH, corresponding to the Milestone 3 of the fixing plan. As a result, all servers have been wiped, updated and restarted. This new version is now available to everyone and features the new crafting tree UI/Menu. We hope you’ll have fun with it and we are eager to read your feedback.
We are still working on what will be the future of ROKH. As mentioned previously, we have some leads to find funding and continue the development of new features for the game. The co-publishing option is our preference and we are actively talking to a few now. Next week’s GDC will be a key moment for us.
We also wanted to use this opportunity to address points that were raised by some of you on Discord following our announcement of the new project we are working on. As you can imagine, the performance of ROKH being limited, we went looking for new partners to continue developing Darewise. We were approached by business partners to work on a new intellectual property. We obviously wanted to merge this opportunity with ROKH but unfortunately, this was not possible. As you know, Darewise has been the publisher of ROKH but now we have the opportunity to be the developer of Project C and we can not pass on this opportunity to go back to our roots. This project is in very very early stage.
This does not change anything for ROKH. Project C is a very different and separate project. Teams are not shared and we still make ROKH a priority. We care about ROKH’s players and about our initial funding partners. We will continue to do whatever we can to bring this game to its best shape.
Thank you all for your amazing support and patience. See you all on Mars!
