April Newsletter

On our return from EGX Rezzed we set about preparing a demo update to include the new features and bug fixes we had done, as well as finalise our plans to get the game to early access.

If you have not done so already you may want to try this update available on IndieDB and GameJolt, and backers can download it from the usual link.

This month a lot of work has gone into the interfaces and options (including key bindings and game setup and the groundwork for loading and saving). Additionally you should all have your steam keys! If anyone has a problem with their keys please do get in touch and we can help sort the issues.

We have finalised the voice lines for early access, found our voice actors and recorded the lines!

Here is a sample from one of the levels:

This update caused an unexpected revival of interest from streamers and YouTubers (especially as it included no new content). There was a lot of coverage on YouTube but here are some of the bigger ones:

There are many more and we appreciate each and every one! Type the game name into YouTube and you will see quite a range.

Following EGX Rezzed we also released a video giving a first look at the surface. This shows how your colony will interact with the surface and other colonies:

Additionally we put together a short video showing our experience at EGX Rezzed, if you came along you may spot yourself!

With the multiple colonies have come team colours, you can see some in this screenshot below. Are there any colours you would like to see in the game (maybe some more natural ones) ?

That is it for April’s happenings, things are really coming together now as we march towards the beta test and early access!
