    2 New FKers!


    NewsBot

    A few exciting things happened over the past few weeks that I didn’t mention before because we were getting ready for and talking about PAX.

    The first is that we hired two more developers at Frostkeep Studios! Don’t worry, we’ll get headshots and a new team page as soon as we get a better camera. Without further ado, here are the bios of our two new FKers!

    Jake Strapko
    Jake is known for breaking game mechanics in Rend and exploiting them to his advantage, in that order. With a lifetime of experience in competitive gaming, Jake grew up in a household where LAN parties were the norm. He competed against his brother and father in popular online games like Quake, Command: Modern Air Naval Operations and Conquer Online before eventually shifting his reserves to focus on Counter-Strike. Jake is formally trained in graphic design, product branding and apparel design, and has also ventured into competitive teams with Counter-Strike 1.5 and playing on multiple tournament teams during the Overwatch Beta where he was one of the top 500 players for Seasons 1 and 2. As one of the most active players in the Rend pre-alpha, Jake can be found streaming on Twitch and helping to build game communities. His focus at Frostkeep will be on making Rend as fair and balanced as possible.

    Michele Cagle
    Known for “making lemonade” and finding the good in everything (as Bob Ross would say, “there are no mistakes, just happy accidents”), Michele Cagle is a seasoned communications executive with nearly 20 years of gaming, corporate, entertainment and consumer products experience. Michele previously led global communications efforts at Sony Online Entertainment, Daybreak Games, THQ and Mattel, including corporate communications, brand PR, internal communications, influencer relations and events. When she’s not off saving animals or channeling her inner Bruce Lee to execute awesome campaigns, Michele can be found chasing sunsets, eating mangos, and getting salty with her family at local beaches on the mainland and in Hawaii.

    The next thing that happened was that we were put on Tech Raptor’s top 10 games at PAX West! This was a huge surprise and an incredible honor, especially when looking at the other games on that list (Dead Cells is sooooo good). We’re so excited to show off the game, and can’t wait to open up the pre-alpha servers again.

    As far as happenings around the office, I’m still plugging away at the UI rework (we’ll get another UI blog later). Tyler and Ron are working on AI and Item system design. Jake is doing some super secret work as well as focus testing and balance design. James is working on new prop items. Travis and Mat are working on making the map bigger and all the cool new biomes. David is working on some performance things regarding base building.

    As always we’re here answering questions from the community on Twitter, Facebook, Steam and the community Discord! Come join us!

    • Hey, I just tried the game and when I connect to the server my computer immediately wants to kill REND. When I close the pop-up window the game runs for half a second or less and the window opens again this time closing the game. I was wondering if this could be caused by a lack of RAM. OS: Windows 7 Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz (8 CPUs), ~3.4GHz Memory: 8192MB RAM Graphics card:  GeForce GTX 560, 4051 MB RAM Storage: 36,7 GB   Now, this may seem like a seriously under-equipped computer, but I am able to run The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt at medium settings. With Min specs for The Witcher 3 being: OS: 64-bit Windows 7, 64-bit Windows 8 (8.1) or 64-bit Windows 10 Processor: Intel CPU Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz / AMD CPU Phenom II X4 940 Memory: 6 GB RAM Graphics: Nvidia GPU GeForce GTX 660 / AMD GPU Radeon HD 7870 Storage: 35 GB available space   I was wondering if you, or anyone for that matter, could find the problem, here are the problem details (Sorry but it is in Dutch) I highlighted the only difference between the 2. Probleemhandtekening:

    • Hi there, I'm Cookie When I first saw this game I got so hyped about the look of the world. As if adventure awaits. Obviously, I got so sad that I couldn't play it. I'm a big fan of fantasy worlds and loving playing with players instead of around them. I'm 17 and have previously helped (or at least tried) a group of kind developers with a fun game. ps: from what I saw in the trailer, love the destruction and that tree is amazing.
    • Neat, I was actually in Hull yesterday for work!
