Hey this is directed towards the Devs towards the recent Q&A stuff (IMPORTANT)
You'll need to contact Sean/Motown here on the forums. If we are able it'll likely be delayed as we're both going to be in San Francisco at GDC.

Computers
Yep.

Dev Blog #004 - A Friendlier Place
What a crazy several weeks since the last dev blog post! The increased exposure and attention from the apartment video has resulted in a surge of additional funding for Identity, which has translated...

Are you able to be drug dealers or drug suppliers?
Drug production and drug trafficking will be a very big part of Identity's economy!

Experienced Police Officer
Hey Kracken! Welcome to the Identity community! People like yourself with experience in law enforcement will be a healthy benefit to the police career in this game. We hope we'll receive your approval...

Hey Unrundead, if I understand correctly, you'd like to change your email address on the identityrpg.com account page. Please private message me with the email address you'd like it to be changed...

Backer Only Area?
We'd love to do this! We still need to integrate pledge tiers into forum user accounts. After that is sorted, we'll see about making this happen!

Dev Blog #003 - This Month at Asylum
It's been a busy, eventful and productive month for the Identity team at Asylum! Only a few weeks ago we released our first video showing real in-game content, the player housing system, and Identity...

2 Game changing Ideas
On official servers, it'll be set that you can see the name of a player who your crosshair or cursor is currently over. There will also be an option for community servers which hides all names of players...

Pizza Delivery?
There are minor delivery jobs created dynamically which a driver can pick up. Some, like a pizza, can be delivered even using a bicycle.

Scam Email!
Thanks guys, I'll investigate that.
Paratus
What? Why is it like this?
Yep, there is. Following what I mentioned before, police can only charge you for a crime you're "flagged" for committing. You don't receive the charge immediately, and the flag wears off quickly. Fingerprints...
Paratus
What? Why is it like this?
That's not quite what he meant by that description. In Identity, committing a crime flags you in such a manner that a police officer can charge you with a crime. If you run a red light, you're...

Video Advertisements
As it stands already, we do have advertising systems for politicians running for office but it's restricted to billboards.I like the idea of advertising on public televisions or cinema, and implementation...

Identity Insider #2 - Housing
Yesterday afternoon, for another Identity Insider, we've released a video detailing the workings of player housing in Identity and what it has to offer at our present point in development. This gives...

Steam Beta?
Hey Golden, Identity will be on Steam, but I'm not sure it will be on Steam during beta testing. You may have to download it from a custom launcher available on our website in order to test when the time...

Text Chat and concerns
Text chat will be available to you in Identity! There will be local chat, as well as private messaging. We acknowledge that the convenience of voice chat isn't always what people want in every situation....

Long time no see - Pledge account deleted?
Toss me a private message with the email screenshot, please. If it's not in our system that means Kickstarter didn't give it to us, which usually comes down to a billing issue at the time of Kickstarter...

POTENTIALLY AWESOME IDEA
At this time you cannot build custom structures on land. There is land for farming, as well as pre-existing homes and buildings which can be owned and operated, but we don't allow building permanent structures...
Paratus
The Library
The existing real world books would be limited to those in the public domain, for legal reasons. Other than that I'm sure there will be a lot of player-submitted content right in Identity.The administration...

Food Service
To answer a few of the questions here, there is a large variety of standard food items you'll find in cafes and restaurants, as well as player-made food. Different sorts of food and drink will "fill"...

Will there be an Illegal parking system?
When a vehicle is parked in an illegal area, such as in front of a hydrant or without paying a parking meter, their vehicle becomes flagged for fining. What this means is that they won't automatically...

Identity Insider #1 - Corporations
Today we publish the first Identity Insider update, bringing you detailed information about key systems in Identity.Our website has expanded with a small page detailing corporations and their...

Consoles
Should we release to console, it'll be digital distribution only and the pricing would be very similar to the PC version.

Card or board games?
Chess is one you'll see pretty early, and there will be others in time.

How will this work? help
It's not set in stone, but the plan is to allow you to choose which town the apartment will be in. Later we'll be selling specific locations, so the universal pledge right now is sort of a limited thing.Different...

Good pistol variety
I can't yet say specifically what pistols will be in Identity. We're still adding some, and may remove others. But there will be a variety of pistols, including revolvers. We want handguns to be more...

Dev Blog #002 - A Peak Behind the Curtain
Hello citizens!It's been too long since our last developer blog entry, so I wanted to take the time today to update all of our backers on Identity's current state of development, as well as give a little...

Is this even true...
None of the 5, $5,000 backers confirmed their pledge after the Kickstarter campaign ended. We were really looking forward to that experience too unfortunately, and would have already fulfilled that...

Is this even true...
All very good questions. We continuously plot our budget to hire as many people as we can (accounting for up to a years pay in most cases) in all essential areas. This essentially...

Is this even true...
Hey guys, wanted to address this to prevent any further confusion, and to offer our perspective and transparency.Asylum Entertainment is registered in Canada by Paratus because he is a Canadian citizen...

Petitioning for an answer, please sign.
I think the major holdup with Town Square right now is that some of the buildings still need interiors. We've been slower at producing those assets than we originally expected. No real reason for...

Petitioning for an answer, please sign.
Hey guys, thanks for your concerns. Identity is absolutely still in active development, but we understand these concerns have a tendency to grow within the community each time we have become quieter than...

Info on cities and towns?
Unfortunately, there probably won't be a little Italy. Identity's design is primarily focused on contemporary modern life surrounding gangs, drug, and law enforcement culture. While these things...

Info on cities and towns?
I can shed some light on this subject!There are three major cities in Identity's map, which consists of an island landmass of approximately 225 square kilometers, including a few smaller islands scattered...

Town Square Screenshots!
Hey guys, I'm really happy about how excited you all are to see these screenshots of the Town Square. They're just meant to be a little something to show you guys how progress is going for that module!...

New Screenshots
There will be more leather jackets and biker gear. The idea is to just cover every theme we can at first and expand from there. The artist responsible for the character sculpting/modeling is Miroslav...

How does jailtime work?
This is an example of when we decide to go for game-play over realism. Prison is a big part of Identity; we've created a whole sort of mini-game surrounding prison life and we expect that while most people...

Consoles
Everyone, please be nice and courteous to others on this forum. Some of the responses I see to threads asking perfectly legitimate and innocent questions are capable of turning people away from this community....

Hello from the deep south
Welcome to our community @Ariasunshine! It's incredible seeing so many people here from so many different places.

How does jailtime work?
The court system does sort of work that way. Only, in Identity you go to jail first and then request a jury trial to either be found guilty and serve out the remainder of your sentence, or be set free....

Is it worth buying the "FOUNDER" passport ?
Hey NZLKYLE,if you pledge $15 for the citizen package, you can upgrade later if you are convinced that you want to play Identity during beta! You'd only need to pay the difference for the upgrade, which...

General Identity TeamSpeak Server
I'd love to see a Discord server!In the meantime, I'll periodically poke my head in to see if anyone is around this Teamspeak. I'd love to chat sometime!

Virtual Reality support?
