FAQ

What are the System Requirements?

These are approximate system requirements for Wilderness. Please expect these requirement to change over the course of development as graphics are improved and the game is optimised. If your system doesn’t meet these minimum requirements, it doesn’t necessarily mean that your game won’t run Wilderness, but it doesn’t mean it will always run smoothly.

Can I mod the game?

As long as it isn’t a breach of the Terms of Service, its perfectly fine to mod the game. However, if you break the game, its completely your fault and Dark Window Studios has no responsibility for your actions.

Why is my game crashing/running at low framerates?

Wilderness is in active development – sometimes the game will break, sometimes you will have appalling framerates. If turning your graphics settings down doesn’t help, make sure you post a message on the forums or, if necessary, make a bug report and we’ll try to get back to you and fix any issues ASAP.

Can I host my own server?

Yes, you can host your own server. For more information on doing so, visit this link. We will work on getting a dedicated server version out during Early Access.

When will the game be availiable on Steam?

We are hoping to get the game on Steam Greenlight hopefully in late 2017, with a Early Access release following shortly. However, this date may fluctuate if development is stalled or quicker than expected.

Will you be doing Pre-Steam release testing?

If you are interested in Pre-Steam testing, please purchase a copy through the Humble Bundle store. Remember that the game is in active development and certain features may be broken, buggy or not fully implemented.

Is this the final price of Wilderness?

No. The price will increase in the transitions from Alpha to Beta and from Beta to Release. Purchasing now will give you a reduced price and access to Steam Early Access and any Pre-Alpha testing we wish to do.

Will you add controller support?

Basic controller support is already in for an Xbox 360 controller. We are also planning on supporting the Oculus Rift and the Steam Controller. Controls for the Xbox 360 are:

  • Movement: Left stick
  • Look: Right stick
  • Fire 1: Left Trigger
  • Fire 2: Right Trigger
  • Pickup/Use: X
  • Jump: A
  • Sprint: Press Left Stick
  • Tap B: Crouch
  • Hold B: Prone
  • Left/Right Bumper: Decrease/Increment Hotbar Selection or if inventory open, tab between Inventory, Crafting, XP and Stats

  • Down D-Pad: Open Inventory
