  1. Will there be any updates on things we can do in town square untill the next module comes out? i mean like biking atleast or let the dealer sell us guns an ammo till then, if a player has a gun on the in the streets you can get shot, if not there no friendly fire!? see what you can do thatd be great! just to keep people entertained

  2. Progress on my appartment

    That bed is giving me some ideas for real life. I noticed the console, lol.
  3. Step into the Town Square! The Town Square module has been released and available on Steam for just over a month. With a rocky start (the initial demand was a very large load on our servers), we devoted most of our development time immediately following to bug fixing and stability improvements. If you haven't had the chance to try the Town Square and experience a small piece of the Identity world, grab your Steam key and check it out. If you played only in the first week of release, I'd recommend logging in again now as stability has vastly improved. Identity Town Square module trailer With the Town Square now running smoothly, we've shifted much of our focus to feature development for the SWAT module. We'll continue to fix bugs and add other features to the Town Square, too. On the Horizon While bug fixing and quality-of-life improvements continue to be a focus for our developers, we've also shifted much of our effort to bringing new features and content to SWAT and the Town Square. Most of this effort is geared toward our next module, SWAT, with the added bonus of being able to utilize it in the Town Square as well. The Town Square Roadmap - Guns, guns, guns! The shooting range in the basement of the police station will be opening up, giving you access to a few guns to try out (like the one pictured here). This will give you a taste of how guns will work and feel. We'll show you how awesome the gun systems are with a video when we come closer to this release. - TVs in apartments. You'll soon be able to watch YouTube and Twitch with your friends in your apartment by using TVs. - Radios in apartments. Select from a dozen radio channels to stream into your apartments. In the full game, the available radio channels are chosen by the server operators. - Improvements to the control and animation of players. We'll be polishing up the way players move to make everything feel smoother. - Added security and ownership systems for apartments, allowing you to assign roommates and more. - Lots of added clothing and character customization options. In addition to the features above coming to the Town Square, we're also pondering work/job elements that can be brought into the Town Square as we'd like to introduce currency. Get your Identity Steam key! To get your key, login on the main site at You can then go to the Account tab of your profile where you'll see an option to link your Steam account. You must have BETA ACCESS on your account to claim a key! ATTENTION! You can only attach one steam account to one game account, and it's permanent. Be sure you're logged into your game account which has the items you've purchased before attaching a Steam account! Handing out the keys like this allows us to reduce load on our servers. We currently have another batch of 10,000 keys in the system and we'll be adding more as necessary. Once you've obtained your key from the Identity website you can enter it into your Steam client, but be sure that you're logged into the Steam account where you'd like to own Identity. Click the Games menu in Steam, and then Activate a Product on Steam. Identity Steam Community Now that Identity is on Steam, Valve has been so kind as to set up our official game Steam community. Drop by to join in on discussions, get updates when we release patches and more. This will also be a great spot to see screenshots and broadcasts from others playing the Town Square. Come visit the Identity Steam Community. -- John VanderZwet
  4. "Hunk Photo Frame" - Uhh, what is this?

    That's Motown's face on my body.
  5. The legality of marijuana will be up to the governor currently in power!
  6. Oversized carrot

    A part of us dies inside when we have to fix bugs like this.
  7. It'll be three modules, which are independent (yet connected in some ways) games. Once they're all complete, we'll move to the full game which is much, much larger and a single game encompassing all of the content from the modules and more.
  8. Ok so were all mad

    What features were advertised which are not present?
  9. I done screwed up. I logged into the identity site with my facebook. It automatically logged in, so I thought it was the same account that I pledged with. Linked my steam, and now it says I don't have beta access. I found out then that when I logged in with Facebook it created a whole new profile. So now my steam is linked to this other profile that isn't under the profile I pledged with. Can they please remove the steam link from the wrong profile to the right profile, so I can get beta access please?

      Awesome, I'll try linking to the correct profile now.

      That worked. Thank you so much!

  10. What guns do you want to see?

    You'll be satisfied on all accounts. All of those guns are already present for the SWAT module and you won't see explosives at all in the open world.

    The elected government can set the default values of the signs like this around the world. They can be hacked, but it'll affect only that one sign for some minutes. I fully expect some less-than-pure messages to show up. I think we all know what is going to happen with graffiti, too!
  12. To Developers

    I do understand your concern, and it's well placed, but it really doesn't have much affect on us at this point as we're working through the weekends a lot already. Hiring temporary developers is almost impossible, though, as with our complex systems it can take weeks or even months for the new developers to fully understand them well enough in order to fix or develop upon them.
  13. Identity is on Steam now!

    Identity and the Town Square are now listed on the Steam store page! We have only a short time before Steam's approval process is complete. The Steam release date for Town Square is in only three weeks time! Head on over to our Steam store page ( ) for all of the exciting information. Also, don't forget to stop by the Steam community section which you'll find on our store page. It's almost here! Thank you to all of our supporters who have allowed us to come so far. This is the first major milestone for a game which could spawn a genre.
  14. We're almost there! Identity's Town Square module has been submitted to Steam and is pending approval. You'll find the Steam store page either today or within the next day or two. Enjoy the trailer above, fresh off the Steam listing. Following Steam's approval of the Town Square within the next day or two, you'll be presented with the official Steam release date. This date will be in November, 2018!

    It's a sad day when you're in one of the top brackets in these things!
