A day without Intruder

Two weeks ago we had a crash in our website servers and just wanted to give a write up to everyone on what happened. 

On April 21st, PC Gamer posted an article about Intruder on their website at http://www.pcgamer.com/previews/intruder-first-look-a-promising-tactical-shooter-that-demands-a-thoughtful-approach/ . We were super excited as we read through the article, which presented our game in such a good light. The result of the PC Gamer article was a huge traffic spike to our website. We received more than twice the number of visitors in a single day ever until our web server, store, and forums finally crashed at midnight on the 22nd. Unfortunately for our players and potential players this made Intruder inaccessible, which we would like to sincerely apologize for.

We spent the entire next day transferring the entire Superboss Games website, forums, blog and all to a completely new dedicated server. This would ensure we had more power for our website as well as some of the in game functions that link to the users and their stats. 24 hours without the game being up was a huge hit after such a great article. The day after the website transferred was spent waiting for the domain name servers to propagate. Even with the website back up, some users were still stuck with “Site is maintenance mode, please check with system administrator.”

As the DNS propagated we spent the next few days helping people through our IRC chat, forums and twitter to make sure people could get access to the website and the game. We carefully watched our new dedicated server setup to make sure that it was handling everything ok. It was stressful, but we are happy to report no major server issues since. 

We want to thank Chris Thursten and PC Gamer for the wonderful article on Intruder as well as all other press for getting so many people interested in our game. We also want to thank all of our players and those interested in Intruder. A site crash like that is something normally associated with launches of huge franchises and MMOs. As an indie developer, a crash like this was exciting and humbling. We hope we didn’t lose many potential players in this transfer process and we will continue to make updates to the game and servers to make sure a similar situation does not happen again. 

If you are reading this and had any friends interested in Intruder but missed it because of the crash, make sure to let them know we are up again. Finally, a huge thanks again to the Intruder community for being such awesome people and helping out all the people that came in recently!

Intruder Series 009 Blood!

Intruder Series 009 Blood!

In the latest video we talk about blood inside of Intruder. 

Blood

  • Blood can appear on walls and floor when you get shot or shoot another player.
  • Besides being a neat effect use the blood to try to figure out where people have been like a clue to firefights gone by.
Blood Trails
  • If you sustain too much damage, you will start leaving behind a blood trail.
  • Follow enemy blood trails to find a hiding enemy.
  • Be careful they didn't use their own trail as a trap to flank you!
 
 
As we said in the video new stuff is up on the website. Check out http://IntruderOnline.com for more info!
 
If you haven't yet, make sure to sign up on our new forum at http://superbossgames.com/forum/ Anybody who is interested in testing should sign up there, post some stuff and also join us in the IRC at http://superbossgames.com/chat See you there!

Intruder Series 008 Gas and Smoke Grenades

Intruder Gas and Smoke Grenade

We've added 2 new types of grenades to Intruder. One of them is the Smoke Grenade and the other is the CS Gas Grenade. 

Uses for smoke

  • The smoke grenade is typically used to cover up the visibility of the enemy when you need to cross an open area
  • It can also be used for escaping single entrance/single exit rooms. It can get hectic but if the enemy doesn't know when you open the door and leave they often won't know when or where to shoot. Extremely useful when escaping with the package or when cornered
  • Use as a distraction. The smoke can just be a decoy signal to make the enemy believe you are going a certain way.
Uses for CS Gas
  • Causes your enemies' vision to blur and both mouse axes to invert in their controls.
  • Extremely useful for room clearing and arresting
  • Use for escape scenarios as well. Throw on the ground behind you and run!
 

If you haven't yet, make sure to sign up on our new forum at http://superbossgames.com/forum/ Anybody who is interested in testing should sign up there, post some stuff and also join us in the IRC at http://superbossgames.com/chat See you there!
