    Perfect a status update. I hope the game wil be releshed around mid late august or september. Nice features the game wil have.
    It ok that the sharing system come after the relesh. We have more than enoth gameplay to wait. Keep up your good work virgil;)

    Great update.. Look forward to a possible linux port. Also wouldn’t go any less than 20 with all the work and awesomeness in the game even a kid mowing lawns can come up with 20.

    1. Kirni
      Kirni July 15, 2013 at 1:03 pm |

      I go hand in hand with Cohibas opinion. Don’t go below 20$.
      I would also pay 60 but I think this might scare a lot of other potential buyers 🙂

      Correct, there is a weird psychology with prices too where people actually buy less of something if they perceive it to be too cheap assuming the quality is probably pretty low thus justifying the low price.

      Basically what that means is, too low of a price can actual reduce sales, not increase them.

        I have heard of that, but I was always under the impression that it had to do more with similar things. Like clothing priced similarly, or jewels priced similarly.

        I would say the creeper games are fairly unique, and the demo will be able to show people this.

        Personally I would easily pay $20-$25. $30 would be a maybe for me.

        1. Alan
          Alan July 21, 2013 at 6:05 pm |

          I bet you would pay $30 on day one. The people that come to this forum are the top 1 percent of people that have played the previous games. We will pay whatever vigil charges.

          Virgil have you considered a collectors edition?

    3. Doggxs
      Doggxs July 16, 2013 at 8:51 am |

      I agree. Price is only an issue in the absense of value. Charge what it is worth.

      I’d just like to remind you all that not every body lives in use or uk and 20$ is rather much in my cuntry. From my salary point of view I’d divide this number by 2 or 3. But that’s just the country I live in.

        When it comes out on steam (if it does) you should find it for around $5 when it is on sale.

    Every thing is looking great i am glad you took your time making this. I would wait one more year just so it was perfect. I mean i am tired of games being rushed to make a quick buck.

    PS. I am very scared of playing custom maps i can only image what i mad creeper scientist will create.

    1. KingSupernova
      KingSupernova July 15, 2013 at 4:15 pm |

      I agree, it’s much better to wait and make sure the game is perfect then to rush it and miss things. Also, I have a suggestion. What about a setting so that if you can place buildings to be built in creeper, but the command nodes would only start sending build packets to them once the creeper was gone?

      1. JoshuaT
        JoshuaT July 15, 2013 at 11:36 pm |

        There was a video demonstrating CRPL towers that showed units that would be built despite creeper being in that spot already. I don’t remember if the CN’s would send packets or not though.

      2. thejoe66
        thejoe66 July 15, 2013 at 11:46 pm |

        Like i building blueprint so you can plan ahead of where to place things.

      3. Mike
        Mike July 16, 2013 at 7:43 am |

        From the look of the videos, it looks like modules already kind of do that. There was a vid Vrigil did where he was showing us the kinds of things CRPL Towers could do, that he built a string of collector nodes through the creeper–they were transparent and wouldn’t build because they were inside creep. He explained that the nodes were queued to build and couldn’t yet because of the surrounding creep. Though, I’m no expert on the game and the current program build may be different.

    As far as finding hardware to test your Linux version on, you can probably test it on the same hardware you use to test your Windows version on. There are a number of options that would let you use Linux on the same machine. You could boot off of a live CD. You could install Linux on a bootable USB stick. You could add a second hard drive to install Linux on, or repartition your Windows drive to free up some space for a Linux installation, and then dual boot your machine. There are utilities to handle all of the data reorganization required to shrink your existing NTFS filesystem and reduce the parition size, without requiring the user to do anything complicated. In regards to the Linux version, if there is anything I can do to help you out, let me know. I’ve been a Unix/Linux system administrator for more years now than I care to admit, even though I still use a Windows rig for gaming and web browsing here at home. (Not that I don’t have any Linux boxes at home. They’re just doing other things, like acting as my firewall, my fileserver, my mythtv DVR boxes, etc…)

    Do you plan to have a preorder once you’re closer to release?

    1. CobraKil
      CobraKil July 16, 2013 at 4:10 pm |

      There’s no physical copies of the game, so there’s no point to it. There’s no stock of the game.

    invaderhive July 15, 2013 at 11:47 am |

    I can not wait to buy this game. Is there any chance you are going to try get this game to be reviewed on youtube on the day of release? I really want to see this game succeed.

    You didn’t actually touch on the rough date you are looking towards. Is it hopefully coming out before Autumn?

  10. sprdpr
    sprdpr July 15, 2013 at 11:57 am |

    Thanks for the update. The game looks great and I am looking forward to it. I have a question about how do we purchase the game. Is it only direct from you or are you planning on steam or some other digital downloader?

  11. 17gamer
    17gamer July 15, 2013 at 12:15 pm |

    $20 – good. Plausible September release-good. Linux support -good. Unity 4.1- good. More crpl flexibility- good.
    All these put together- excellent addition to the creeper world saga. 3 cheers for Virgil!

    The custom map sharing system is not needed immediately as I’m sure that the game itself will be more than enough to play for a month or two, and only after playing trough all of story and some DMD/Prospector missions people will start creating custom maps 😀 And the game looks so awesome!!!!

    Chris July 15, 2013 at 2:38 pm |

    Jesse July 15, 2013 at 6:25 pm |

    $20 is fine. Even $30 wouldn’t be too bad but I’d have to wait for next month.

    But regardless.

    Shut up and take my money.

    Hey Lich, what’s your preference for a unit on a new power zone in a creeper infested area?

    1. Lich98
      Lich98 July 17, 2013 at 6:37 pm |

      Blaster/Sprayer to clear the creeper around it out, then move in a Motar.

    *Comment Made before watching video*
    Virgilw- What will the highest resolution possible? Also, could the next video/ screen shot use this resolution? (sorry if already asked. I beleive it was 1080?)
    Also, you quote “Play on maps of variable size, dimension, and shape.” You said earlier that maps do not have to be square. They could be a circle (or something like that) then you said you would get back to it later. Is this going to be possible in CW3?
    If the game is 20$ or less, you will earn 200000000000000000000 dollars or less 😉
    I cannot wait for the most ambitious installment of creeper world three!

    1. Lizard
      Lizard September 20, 2013 at 6:34 pm |

      that would be 20 quintillion dollars, no way he’ll get THAT much money.

    sweetdude64 July 15, 2013 at 10:07 pm |

    Guys stop, he will up the price to the thousands by this point XD
    I was wandering- but how many songs will come in the game? Also, what program(S) do you use to make your songs?

  21. Samboni
    Samboni July 15, 2013 at 10:42 pm |

    I’d say $25-30 would be a reasonable price for the game. Considering all the work you’ve put into it and the fact that it has a custom map creator built in, along with a way to make a custom story IN the custom missions, I think that the lowest you could possibly go without ripping yourself off would be $20.

  22. Daniel Carrick
    Daniel Carrick July 15, 2013 at 11:49 pm |

    TBH I would be irked at a $60 price tag, but after 10 seconds consideration I would pay & be fairly happy about paying

    Lichmaster, please please pretty please with sugar on top DON’T include any music with your next videos! Just release the video with just the sound effects or nothing. Commentary is of course MUCH preferred!
    Also, why don’t you just keep the speed at 1x? Most players can change the playing speed for people that are in a hurry.

    Virgill, why do the beta builds look at lot less pretty than the alpha builds? (see screenshots)
    The difference in height was much more pronounced in the alpha builds, and the use of different colours was also much better.
    Is there going to be a setting to determine those colours?
    Thanks for the info.

      Many of my recent videos have the game music in them, which can’t be released until closer to game release date, yet to be determined, or after.

  24. lvdata
    lvdata July 16, 2013 at 12:58 am |

    Virgil, I too am happy to wait as your previous work speaks for itself. Waiting and being amazed is better then getting it faster and a lesser game. Bang for the buck sounds GREAT at $20. Replay and custom maps makes the game well worth it. A quick idea – can you have the game auto-update like windows, but less annoying? 🙂

    1. Michionlion
      Michionlion July 25, 2013 at 11:16 pm |

      Although auto-update hasn’t been implemented (so I don’t know how it will work), V will most likely go with what CW2 used – a notification to a patch download if your game is not the current release.

  25. Weekendgamer
    Weekendgamer July 16, 2013 at 4:43 am |

    Making the game <= $20 is a good idea, if people want to pay $60, they can just buy 3 copies; if not, just buy one.

  27. anon
    anon July 16, 2013 at 9:05 am |

    $20? After Steam sales, I’m not sure I can justify more than $5 on a game…

    Kidding, of course (but I will never buy a AAA game full price again). And is it just me, or is the video lagging like crazy?

    1. Lich98
      Lich98 July 17, 2013 at 6:40 pm |

      Accually my computer stuggles with larger maps. its not the best for a gaming however, I plan to build a better one soon, hopefuly by christmas.

      1. anon
        anon July 18, 2013 at 3:36 pm |

        Turns out it’s a problem on my end. It’s sort of fixed now. How does lag compare in 3 and 2 when dealing with lots of space guns and dense (level 50-100 and 5-10 thousand thousand seem comparable) Creeper?

        1. Michionlion
          Michionlion July 25, 2013 at 11:17 pm |

          If you had no problems with cw1 (which, by the way, was way too ambitious graphically for AIR), you should be fine.

    Virgil, have you ever considered doing a package deal, where you buy all three games for the price of two, or something like that? That would make my day.

    1. Andris
      Andris July 18, 2013 at 5:05 am |

      I was hoping for a preorder deal at around $30-$35 for all the three games, with CW1 and CW2 downloadable right now and CW3 when ready. I played only the demo of both older games (on Kongregate maybe?) and I’d be happy to finish them by the time CW3 comes out.

      But I’ll wait until the final price and possible bundles are available.

  29. sweetdude64
    sweetdude64 July 16, 2013 at 12:04 pm |


    The game will be released first on http://knucklecracker.com/
    Not on steam. Steam may come later, as the spotlight, but the game will definatly come first here.

        MizInIA July 17, 2013 at 1:09 pm |

        Really? you can pay with Credit/debit, paypal, or check. Not sure what other methods you need. Do you plan on paying with food stamps, Linden Dollars and iTunes points?

          I plan on paying with iDeal, a Dutch system where you get redirected to your bank’s website, authorize payment and get redirected back to the shop’s website, which has received a “payment succesful” message from the bank. Very easy, very secure, almost universally used by webshops oriented at the Dutch market. Big international webshops like Steam often also have an iDeal payment option. However, internationally oriented shops which are small (KC) or stubborn (Amazon) often don’t offer it. For the small ones, I sometimes go through the hassle of loading PayPal (through iDeal), which I will do in this case if no alternative presents itself. The stubborn ones just lose me as a customer.

          1. Sander Bouwhuis
            Sander Bouwhuis July 19, 2013 at 8:34 am |

            As a fellow Dutchman I agree. I only recently started using Steam because they added Ideal. I now have 23 games I bought, and there is currently a Steam sale going on, so that’ll probably increase quite a bit.
            If there is no Ideal, I simply can’t purchase something. I only once ever made an exception for this and that was for a CW1+CW2 pack. But, to get this done I had to contact Virgill personally. (thanks again for helping me back then Virgill!)

          2. MizInIA
            MizInIA July 19, 2013 at 10:25 am |

            well… I learned somthing. sorry for being snarky. it appeared to me that all major options were available. but I now see International has some other options available. a lot of small shops here in the us only use paypal for processing so you have to route your payment method of choice through them even if you don’t set up an account with paypal.

            1. sweetdude64
              sweetdude64 July 26, 2013 at 12:31 pm |

              I wouldn’t be surprised if this game could be sold to anyone across the world with a computer. Lets go international!

  30. nrjp
    nrjp July 16, 2013 at 12:34 pm |

    Don’t go less than $20. We want to support the hard work that you have put into this great game. Terrible sequels on consoles go for 3 times that, this is a great sequel and the money is going to the developer directly.

    Everything is looking great! Excited to get my hands on it.

    1. Blue Dwarf
      Blue Dwarf July 16, 2013 at 3:12 pm |

      If you really want to support him, buy more than one copy. Maybe as gifts for friends, then they will realize the awesome and buy the first two games as well 😀

      I never get the logic behind “We want to support you, so make it cost more!”

      1. nrjp
        nrjp July 16, 2013 at 9:39 pm |

        Ok, How about:

        Don’t go less than $20. You put a lot of work into this game, and, regardless of whether or not I want to support you, anyone who buys the game should have to support you by paying what the product is worth. This product is certainly worth $20, ergo do not charge less than $20.

        I don’t have friends that game, buying two copies makes even less sense to me than paying a fair price for the game.


  31. Marley
    Marley July 16, 2013 at 3:38 pm |

    I’d happily pay $60!

    …if I had it.

    But at the same time I know the incredible hours that have been invested already, and the hours yet to come, even after release and major updates. And the whole creative thing, and the “support your local developer” thing, and on and on…

    So. Price appropriately. I’ll drool from the sidelines if need be.

      AND I think you really need a “partner” helping you with developing games. Because you alone …. I think you realize that you made the game in 6 months, you could “hire” someone to help you with the future games you will make.

        Virgil is currently a One man show due to the fact that he runs a family on the money mad from CW sales.

        1. Generalafire
          Generalafire July 19, 2013 at 10:37 am |

          Come now Lich, this game is f-ing awesome, but he’s got to have a side job or something, making this game in his free time. But I’d say he does make some odd bits of money on the side, the game being on Kong and a few other websites, they come here, purchase, so at least 10-20k a year. (nice money if you have a first 10-15$ an hour job.) But I agree that Virgil would need a helper, a friend maybe, that doesn’t care to get payed. Though I think Virgil has already stated why he doesn’t have more, if I remember correctly he said something about purity of the game, others would change it from the idea he already has (Don’t know if this is correct, please correct me if I am wrong)

              This is his job. Not his side job. His job. He doesn’t have someone helping hin or anything, I’m not sure how he does it. 😛 The only help he has is from the beta group, like me and Lich. Frankly, I’m not to sure he’d want help.

              1. Generalafire
                Generalafire July 22, 2013 at 12:55 pm |

    This is awesome: My brother checks the website twice a day for updates. Hopefully this will make him slow down. 🙂
    Take as long as you need to, quality is MILES better than a fast release, and the game, from what I’ve seen, will definitely be worth the wait.

    I’m looking forward to obliterating the Creeper with the arsenal of weapons you’ve set up!

    2 words; CAN’T. WAIT. I never bought CW1 or 2, but I played CW1 training sim, US, and Evermore, and I also played CW2 Training Academy. With how awesome CW3 is looking, it’s going to be my first Creeper World buy, and if you release a good bundle deal with CW1, 2 and 3 in it, I’ll probably buy that too. If not, you can’t keep me from buying CW3 the moment it’s released! HA! 🙂

    I just totally completed CW1 ( Including Loki mission finished 6 times, 1 time without Thor, all Conquer missions, all Spec Ops missions).
    I finished CW2 and a half of the Special Missions (finished also the Credits mission 🙂 )
    I’m still playing CW1…

    I CANNOT WAIT !!! 🙂

    I kind of hate that your removing the good parts of the game and saying that they are overpowered. This is supposed to be a surviving city with extremely advanced technology, why wouldn’t they have things that can really kill the creeper?

    a major question to virgilw or lich creeper world 3 is it going to be out on mac too like the first and second one?

      I can’t say for sure, but considering the (seemingly) large amount of people that use Mac, I think he’ll probably add Mac support. Not doing so could result in a major sales loss, not that he’s trying to milk us for money. 🙂

    Oh I found this status update to answer quite alot of questions i had sometime ago. I honestly hope you take the time you need to Virgil, but my inner gamer doesn’t care, he jsut wants to aply the next Creeper World, because both the first two games, and even the online demo and the two others were amazing.
    The above sounds pretty ambitious, but i think it’ll all be above extraordinary. Honestly I jsut hope my crappy computer will be able to play it, hahaha.

    And like anyone above, I wish i could do some play testing for ya xD

    Good luck with the development, and thanks for the status update!

    If there will be a native linux version available to play without any wine, crossover, vm or other emulators then I’m ready to pre order it even now.
