Well, that was certainly fun. Many of you might have noticed I disappeared from the blog for the last month. In just a few days Particle Fleet will be 1 month old! This last month has been a whirlwind…
There have been a few issues, and I got the most serious addressed in 1.0.1. Another batch I’ve just addressed in 1.0.2. But overall, the launch went very well and the game has been well received. Sure, there are a few bad reviews here and there. But there are many more positive reviews, and that works for me. So thank you to everyone who has played the game and provided positive feedback. It helps and encourages…
Oh, here’s the link for the 1.0.2 changes. If you are on steam, you will get the update soon automatically. http://knucklecracker.com/forums/index.php?topic=22155.0
A few notes about things upcoming:
- A small DLC containing the Soundtrack, a 50+ page pdf book of my development diary, and a key for Corporation-in-the-Game, will be coming very soon. Like end of next week on steam. Maybe sooner than that for direct sale. It’s just a small thing and certainly not necessary to play and enjoy the full game. But for those looking for a little extra, or wanted to show even more support, it will be there soon. And a thank you in advance for anyone who does pick it up.
- Some feature additions to Particle Fleet. A ship preview, and an exchange for modules/ships. There are some technical details to work out, but work them out I will.
- Creeper World 1 and Creeper World 2 anniversary editions! Yes, they are coming to steam. Yes, you will no longer need AIR installed separately on your machine. Yes, each game will get some small attention. Nothing that will change gameplay, but just a little something extra for each game. The first Creeper World was released in 2009, but it is still a sweet little game and it deserves a little attention.
- And early next year, I will begin work anew. I have around 5 topics I want to explore in my next quest for that elusive ‘fun and unique gameplay’ prey.
