Topic: Outernauts / Important Outernauts Browser Update

Just wanted to say again how much we appreciate your passion and support over the course of Outernauts. It truly means the world to us. We’re sorry it just didn’t work out in the end to keep the game running. But, hopefully, you’ve all gotten some fond memories out of playing it. We know we have.

Topic: Outernauts / Important Outernauts Browser Update

Over the past year and a half, millions of fans around the world have explored the galaxy, captured an ever-expanding variety of exotic beasts, and battled one another in Outernauts. What began as a one-person experiment took on a life of its own. And we’ve learned so much! Being our first browser and free-to-play title, Outernauts experienced some growing pains (remember when we used to have Energy?), but we are truly proud of it and the evolution it has gone through. Part of that evolution came from suggestions from our fans and their constant passion. We are forever thankful.

However, the time has come for us to create a new Outernaunts adventure that will be available on iOS. While we’d love to be able to keep running Outernauts on Facebook, Kongregate AND iOS, we simply don’t have the resources to do so at our high standards. What does that mean? Honestly, it means we wouldn’t be able to create new content for all three platforms and more importantly, properly address player inquiries. We have to pick where we focus, and we’re going to focus on iOS (and eventually Android).

So, we have made the difficult decision to shut down Outernauts on Facebook and Kongregate on January 31st in order to concentrate on making our iOS version the very best it can be. As of right now, we have stopped in-game purchases and will offer triple the purchased Star Gems to those who bought them within the past 24-48 hours. In addition, we will soon announce a detailed rewards structure as a thank-you to the many dedicated Outernauts browser players who may wish to try Outernauts on iOS. This is important to us, as we have come to really connect with the hardcore Outernauts community members. We want to make sure you stick with us and continue enjoying and helping make the franchise better.

We understand this news may come as a surprise to our players. We know some of you may be upset, and we truly apologize for that. You can reach us on the forums, via social media, or through this e-mail (info@insomniacgames.com). Please know that we are always listening. We hope our pending rewards will serve as a token of our gratitude and will at least encourage you to try Outernauts on iOS. Speaking of which, we have overhauled the game, while retaining the core charm and features of the original. That means it’s a more streamlined experience focusing primarily on breeding and battles — with more beasts, worlds, missions and well…more. In other words, we’ve evolved Outernauts specifically for iOS. This ain’t no simple port. We’re very excited about it here.

Thank you, from the entire Outernauts team, for your understanding. We hope you’ll continue to tame the galaxy with us again soon!

P.S. – Yes. Perchie and Pudoo are in Outernauts iOS. Maybe with a little extra flair…

Oh, and you have to CATCH them – not breed them. Hope this helps!

Hey guys, make sure your Kong account isn’t set to “Private” in your settings. That might help.

Topic: Outernauts / SURVIVAL DUNGEON

Hey guys, this is a really fun and awesome idea. I will forward it to the rest of the team. I will say, this would be a very large feature to implement and most of the team is on Outernauts Mobile now, so I’m not sure it would come to fruition. Still, it’s a lot of fun, so I will forward it their way. You never know!

With lag we highly recommend clearing your cache before long play sessions. That should help.

Thank you for playing!

Topic: Outernauts / Stat boosts and fusing inconsistency

We’ve brought back Boosting and Fusing. It IS a bug, but since people have been using it for a while now – it’s only fair to bring it back in.

Thanks for the thread!

Topic: Outernauts / Suggestions!

Hey, thanks for the feedback. We truly do appreciate the passion. I’ll go through each point.

1. I’ll suggest it, but I wouldn’t expect anything like that soon. It would mess with the economy balance of our game. Still, I understand where you are coming from and will bring it up with the rest of the team.

2. We recently did increase the chances of getting rare items during crystallization. You should see an up-turn. We will keep an eye on it, though.

3. We are always looking to improve the performance of the game.

4. Probably won’t do this. Part of the fun of the game is when the community bands together to find out the intricacies of the game. If we give all that away – what fun is that?

5. So, we know there is an issue of Fused Epics being more powerful that a Legendary. That’s just kind of what happened when we introduced Fusion. However, a Legendary Fused is still the most powerful. We also try to give each Legendary at least one new movie. Beyond that it’s tough because most of the team is on Outernauts Mobile now.

6. Kinda explained this is 5, but, ya. We know that it makes them a bit weaker because they are one off beasts, but it also makes them more unique. Still, I’ll ask.

7. We monitor the Kong chat everyday and talk quite a bit in it. Also, when issues are submitted through our ticket system, we usually respond within 48 hours. That’s the best way to make sure we see something. I know we miss some e-mails and forum posts, but we actively listen to all of you.

8. No need :)

Other comments:

- Looking into that. That item was made before Fused beast brought the HP up over 500. We’ll fix when we can.
- Again, we will monitor this.
- We’ll look into this, but it’s an economy thing.
- This is something we want to implement. We realize it’s usefulness. Honestly, might not make it into Outernauts Browser, but it for sure in Mobile.
- Would take a lot of coding. I’ll suggest it, but probably won;t happen at this point.
- Same as last question.

So, hope this helps. Again, thank you for compiling these. I know a lot of these answers weren’t something you might want to hear, but – there ya go! And, I’ll forward these to the team to see if there is anything we can do!

Cheers! And thanks for playing!
