Get The Signal From Tölva Pre-Release Test And Help Us Bugfix!

Hello!

It’s time for us to do a little testing of our new game, The Signal From Tölva.

We’re using itch.io’s clever Refinery system to make a limited run of just 500-keys available. If you want to help us out (both financially and feedbackily) then now is the time! The pre-release price is $15 (the final release will be $20) and we will, of course, provide a Steam key to anyone who purchases this version of the game upon release.

This is a pre-release build and THERE WILL BE BUGS. The absolute minimum spec is Windows 7, 8, or 10 (64-bit only), 8gb RAM, 2gb Graphics card of 600-series Nvidia or equivalent. Please note we are not supporting a 32-bit client. A higher spec graphics card – especially 900-series and higher – will definitely pay off here.

You will need to collect your “Test Certificate” reward on itch.io to download the game. We also recommend using the itch client.

Please get yourselves on the forum over here for Tölva talk.

NOTE: Please don’t post videos from this build, except to illustrate feedback issues on the forums. Thanks!

The Signal From Tölva – Announcement Press Release

BIG ROBOT LTD ANNOUNCES THE SIGNAL FROM TÖLVA FOR WINDOWS AND OSX, AVAILABLE 2017

INTERSTELLAR OUTPOST, AUGUST 2016 - UK developers Big Robot Ltd today announce their bold new science fiction action title, The Signal From Tölva. The single-player first-person exploration and combat game will be made available for Windows and OSX in early 2017.

Big Robot’s Jim Rossignol explains: “Tölva is our ode to classic pulp science fiction, with all its weirdness and drama. We’ve long wanted to explore a world of starships floating over hazy valleys, and robots battling amid pulsing ruins. This is that game.”

THE SIGNAL FROM TÖLVA

In the distant future, star-faring robotic factions sift through the ruins of an ancient civilisation. On the highlands of Tölva, beneath the shadow of abandoned war machines, they found something.

Was it the source of the signal you were so interested in? And will the trail lead to enlightenment, or something more sinister? You hijack a drone and you begin the search for yourself.

The Signal From Tölva is a journey into a wild science fiction landscape, filled with danger and beauty: you must survive terrible hazards, navigate through impossible spaces, and fight an ongoing battle to control this haunted, blighted world. You will make use of a range of powerful tools to overcome your enemies and uncover secrets: hack robots to battle alongside you, equip powerful weapons, and detonate savage defence systems.

Fight, explore, and solve the mystery of The Signal From Tölva!

FEATURES

- Explore a single-player shooter set in a sprawling, hand-crafted landscape.
- Delve into science fiction mystery as you explore the haunting highlands.
- Fight a war of territory control against dynamic and ferocious AI.
- Recruit robots to fight alongside you.
- Equip electronic countermeasures, plasma shields, and savage beam weapons for intense skirmishing.

DEVELOPMENT

The Signal From Tölva has been in development for two years and Big Robot have been privileged to work with the legendary Ian McQue (Bully, Manhunt, Grand Theft Auto IV/V) in formulating the game’s visual style. The game’s rich science fiction universe will be further developed in a lore book and prologue novella authored by Cassandra Khaw (Hammers On Bone).
