Q:
 What is
"SCP"? 

A: SCP stands for "Special Containment Procedures", as you can find
here. It is a creative wiki based on writing stories/documentation on anomalous objects. I reccomend you check it out yourself if you're interested!

                                                                                                                                                                                 


Q: Where
is Affray Studios based? 

A: We are mainly based in the United States & the UK, but we also have some team members from Canada, Australia, etc.

                                                                                                                                                                                 


Q: Will ____ be added?

A: We will not answer this - it's annoying and consuming to answer these so don't bother. If you feel as if you have a cool idea we haven't discussed, make a
suggestion

                                                                                                                                                                                 


Q: What site is the game based on?

A:
Area 14.

                                                                                                                                                                                 


Q: Will the game be multiplayer?

A: Yes, all
gamemodes planned will be multiplayer with A.I. server/gameplay options.

                                                                                                                                                                                 


Q: Are you competing with other SCP games?

A: In a way, yes. Although our goal is to not just be better than the other SCP games out there, our ultimate goal is to get up there with other major horror games and bring in a new face to the genre. That is why we are sticking tight with the SCP lore and are bringing SCP to the big scene. We have hundreds, if not thousands (uncountable if I'm being honest) of hours put solely into the planning of Ascension and what we want to make with it. It is a long road ahead, and we are more than willing to stick by it. 

                                                                                                                                                                                 


Q: How much will the game cost?

A: The game will be $9.99 USD once in pre-order with private alpha testing and early access - and once the game is under full release it will be Free To Play.  Patrons/donators will also receive keys once we get our Steam page public if the amount they gave is
equal or more than the prices. We are doing this to ensure we will have a direct income to put into development and pay back and potential investors/publishers - this will make sure we make the best final product humanly possible. We will also give away keys randomly on our Discord server. We also plan on paid expansions such as Lunar Area 32 and Unlondon.

                                                                                                                                                                                 


Q: When will the game be released?

A: I hate to be that guy, but the answer is "when it's ready" for the most part. We plan on releasing the
Blackout gamemode for public play late next year (2019). Donators will have access to private builds between now and then if you are interested in supporting us.

                                                                                                                                                                                 


Q: Where will the game be released?

A: Steam, we are using the Steamworks SDK left and right.

                                                                                                                                                                                 



Q: Will there be updates post-release?

A: Yes. Bug fixes and big content updates.

 

                                                                                                                                                                                 


Q: What software/tools do you use?

A: Our game engine is
Unreal Engine 4. We also use software like Autodesk Maya, ZBrush, Blender, Gamesparks, IKinema, Github , etc.
 

                                                                                                                                                                                 
 

Q: Is the game going to be like Containment Breach and/or Secret Laboratory

A: The short answer is no. At least we definitely are not going to be intentionally. Our goal is to make a lore-accurate, 'realistic' experience of what it would be like if the SCP Foundation was a real thing. We are going to have realistic weapons, vehicles, map assets, clothing, mechanics,  etc. We want this to feel as real as possible. Even if that means bending our backs backward in most cases. We aren't going to rehash the same concept over and over again, even we are tired of it with recent SCP games. (Speaking of fresh concepts, I recommend checking out
Site 37, Khad (the creator) is making everything from scratch, you should consider supporting him. We need to support fresh ideas in the SCP universe.)

                                                                                                                                                                                 


Q: What
gamemodes do you plan on implementing?

A: We have a lovely list of our plans
here.

                                                                                                                                                                                 


Q: What items/weapons will you have?

A:
Here ya go!

                                                                                                                                                                                 


Q: Will there be gore?
A: Lots and lots.

                                                                                                                                                                                 


Q: dIDnT thE ScAmBLe gEAr FaIL?

A: This game is based slightly
in the future - there is a thing called technology advances and upgrades. And the original incident was an intentional sabotage.
 
                                                                                                                                                                                 


Q: Will the game will be
first or third person?

A: Both will be utilized for their own purposes/as server options.

Just cuz I don't remember the answer and can't find the answer:

When is the Private Build gonna be released to patreons?

(and what is private builds? ?)

Most likely some time in 2019. The private builds are experimental builds of the game that act as snapshots in development. Most of the private game builds will be buggy or lacking major features but allow the patrons to follow along with the development process. 
 

For example if I released the current build to our patrons you'd literally only be walking on a flat plane with 939 wandering about without animations. You'd be able to see the current development which would be the animations for the human character (which look damn fine) and the inventory, health, and weapons system.

Too early to say.

Also a bit too early to say,  but as of now, we are working with around a dozen. This will only increase over time.

That's the entire purpose of the Sandbox gamemode  we plan.

I like the idea of an MTF hotline, like in the facility manager's office, there is a lockdown button or something.
