Posted by on

HEY! While you are here, make sure to Wishlist Regulator City on Steam and check out the public (beta) demo!

A fresh new public demo! This is to welcome people coming over from the Indie Live Expo 2022 that Regulator City is participating in. Check out the demo over on Steam, it’s still a heavy work in progress, but it does show you where this game is moving towards and it’s only getting better from here !

For existing demo players, this version comes with such a long list of changes, I don’t expect anybody to read through it, but trust me, it’s a good list from a development point of view. A lot of changes, fixes, improvements and new content all over the place. I also changed some of the level maps, giving them a better flow and more interesting tactical wise. I’ll continue tweaking these things and of course I’ll be adding new maps to play on (there are already one or two new ones in this version).

Make sure to wishlist the game, and also come hang out on the Discord: discord.gg/orangepixel – where eventually we will be moving to private beta’s/demos closer to release!

One or two of the bigger changes are featured in my latest devlog video, so if you want to hear me explain some thought process on these things AND show the creation of a couple of NPC avatar pictures, then this is the video to watch:
