Development is still going strong and I wanted to show you some of the things I have been working on!

Greetings Captains!

It seems like ages since I have last written an article but development hasn’t slowed down, I have been posting my articles over on the Steam page.

So let's look at some of the cool things I have been working on.

By some technical genius we have implemented online pausing! This is my favourite thing I have ever implemented into any game!

Most of my time has been spend working on levels the last month, I have added a whole bunch of disasters and events to get through on your ship.

Maintaining the heat levels so you don't freeze up.

Lots of progress has been made on the levels:

  • Levels 1-4: 95% complete
  • Levels 5-8: 60% complete
  • Levels 9-12: 40% complete

My current plan is to launch the game early with just a small number of the levels in. After I get feedback about those I can use that information to make better levels.

The last thing I wanted to show everyone is the most interesting to me. I've been working alot on debugging tools and I think it's fascinating to see how the screen looks while I develop the game:

As you can see I have build a huge number of systems to monitor the game as it goes along.

That's all for now

Lots of Love
