Looking for an open world dieselpunk RPG? If so, and you’ve not already heard of InSomnia, then you might want to look into it via our previous coverage. The game was funded about a year ago now and Studio MONO tends to provide updates about twice a month. Their latest news from the developers is all about InSomnia’s inventory, item repair, and crafting systems.
Inventory is being kept realistic-ish by backpacks having a maximum load carry of up to 150% maximum weight.
