Savage's 10th Anniversary
September 09, 2013, 11:49:48 pm by Daemon

Happy Birthday, Savage!

10 years ago today, a game like no other took its first step into a world that literally was not ready for it. An unexpected melange of genres, Savage is the living proof that innovation is still possible as far as video games go. Its sky high skill ceiling, its strongest asset, also was its greatest enemy. It is both addictive and frustrating, quickly separating the weed from the chaff, leaving only the best to try and tame the game. Does the player master the game, or does the game master the player? This is a question that took 10 years to answer: generation after generation of players, server owners and developers alike, we are all Savage's puppets. And I'm afraid it's true.

The game outlived huge commercial titles because of the dedicated community it attracted like Jupiter did with the stones and pebbles forming its rings. We, this eclectic group of people that got hooked on Savage, when its very creators went looking for greener pastures, fueled by our passion for the game, amazingly, we used stones, we used branches and kept building it, kept adding to it, kept it alive.

New Savage XR Trailer and Website

Today we are proud to release the Savage XR Gameplay Trailer and a brand new Savage XR website, two excellent tools to advertise our beloved game and bring new blood to the servers.

Savage XR Tutorial Section finished

Listen, Watch, Practice. That's the device of our finished Savage XR tutorial section! We added a duel practice mode with 5 different difficulty levels against our vastly improved A.I. bots that fight like real players. And there's a new skirmish practice mode, which simulates a real match against bots where you can test all units, weapons and the commanding mode. The canadian voice talent Adam Behr will lead you through the bug fixed, improved Human Tutorial, followed by the new Beast Tutorial with the voice of Lea Gulino. You can also watch 3 demos by our community members Shagroth and Nanaa.

What's next?

Following the release of Savage XR, the crowning of 6 years of work by the Newerth team of voluntary developers and another few years behind the release of previous such mods as SEP, EX2, SFE, we decided that keeping it alive was not enough. As the story says, it is time to rebuild and restore what once was. With that in mind, the Newerth dev team began working anew, benefiting from the advancements in game design technologies, tools and assets availability, allowing small teams to create complex games in way that 10 years ago was simply not possible in similar circumstances. As such, Newerth is proud to announce the development of a brand new game, capitalizing on the unique FPS+RTS+TPS genre that Savage introduced, and meant to appeal to the masses that would not be swayed by a great, but still, 10 years old game.

What better way to honor the 10 years of Savage than by making sure its legacy is passed on to future generations of players with the introduction of SAVAGE LIVE:

Head on to this devblog post for the details.

A New Newerth.com Dedicated Server
June 20, 2013, 01:08:29 am by Django

Back in 2007, the Newerth.com team managed to petition the community for financial support to buy server hardware for running all the services that support Savage. We managed to achieve this through kind donations from the community and with financial support from S2Games (the original developer of the game). You might not be aware but we still maintain these services and more to keep the game running at a continuous personal expense to ourselves (this can be see in our donation centre here). These services include the in-game authentication, clan management (including icons) and statistics system, Teamspeak (freely available for anyone to use), dedicated game servers, build hosts (for compilation/development of Savage XR) and of course this advert free website/forums (plus others I forget).

We've recently experienced a spate of service downtimes due to hardware related issues with our now ageing 5 year old server, which has come to the end of its life. Technically our collocated server is on its death bed, running on a single hard disk drive (due to a SATA controller failure that increases the likely hood that any future failure will require a long period of downtime to recover backups) and a cooling fan has also failed.

I have ordered a new server to replace our old one but this has not come cheap due to our resource requirements and is costing £2400 (~2800 Euro, $~3700 including a years rack space rental). My hope is that you, the community, will be willing to help support Neweth.com financially by donating using the following link:

If you can spare any amount please help us out and donate, it would be great to see another 5 years of uninterrupted Savagery! Thank you for your support in advance :)
