Holiday greetings, backers!
We're happy to throw another log onto the holiday update fire! For our December update, we've got a ton of new features to check out.
Survey results = better game
The previous survey gave us a ton of feedback and we've really taken it to heart and updated the game based on YOUR comments. Check out the full progress report video we made to see everything in action:
In response to your feedback, our full tutorial is in production but we've added help pages to most areas of the game. Friend mode is very nearly done, and we've addressed many players concerns about the end game feeling unfair with a new game mechanic called Pillage! We've also done some extensive balancing of units and all 12 unique characters are ready for launch, can be purchased from the Mead House and promoted in the Proving Grounds.
Please vote for us!
We've been nominated for Most Anticipated Game of the Year on Indie Statik! If you like the way production and beta has been going, please: VOTE HERE. We're in the "Most Anticipated" section. This is also a fine time to vote for Journey, the excellent indie title featuring music composed by Austin Wintory, who has been composing for us thanks to all of you!
Voting ends on Dec 31st, so there's only a week or two left. And thank you so much for helping us out, we truly appreciate it!
Red 5 (makers of Firefall) have been putting together a website for industry videos and filmed us for a feature called Rise of the Indies quite a while ago. They've finished the video off and now have Stoic's feature up and ready for viewing! It was shot on Red cameras, which are the top of the line in the industry and look amazing Check it out: HERE.
Early access now even more accessible
For the holidays, we've put early access on sale! All backers already have access for free but this is a great opportunity to tell friends or anyone who'd be interested in playing over the holiday break. Check the website HERE!
Next year all kinds of things are going down. Keep an eye out for friend mode, AI fights, Tournaments and a short single-player campaign as we work towards completing the full Saga, all free and available early for backers to try.
Have a great holiday!
Alex, Arnie and John
