Species Report #3

Posted by Pathea Games (Creator)

We're now at 62% there with 13 days and 23 hours to go! We're getting there but we need more people to know about it still. On Steam Greenlight, we've moved up to #33, still moving at a very fast clip. If we can get approved in this group of Greenlight games on the 17th, we'll have a very easy time getting to our goal on here, I think.

Regarding the Mac version, I mentioned before we might get a version out this week. Well, I'll take that back. We actually have a pretty stable Mac version running in the office right now, it's working! But, some stuff are broken, since we took about the game in between builds to add things and change things. The NPCs are utterly broken right now, so's parts of the ui system...so to be safe, we're not going to release a Mac version for now, sorry.

Today, I'll show you a couple more animals coming up in future builds. The first is Caelum Rex, it is a huge bird of prey that roams above the mountain biomes. It flies at a very high altitude and likes to attack targets from above. It is a grave threat to airplanes. It has very thick skin and armor plates, making it hard to kill. Missiles and particle cannons are the suggested method of taking out this beast. Beware that most of the time they fly in pairs.

The other species is the Stonecrusher. The Stonecrushers are passive animals that live between the forest areas and the mountains, it uses the bony extrusion on its underside to piece the ground to get at insects hidden within. The extrusion can also be used as a weapon against threats. When faced with a predator, the animal will extend to its full height in a bid to scare off . Even though this is mostly a solitary animal, sometimes they do socialize in groups.

      I upped my pledge. It wasn't enough to finish the Kickstarter but it was what I could do.

      Were the Stonecrushers the animals we saw chasing the player in the trailer?

      The update is not clear enough about the Mac version, if it will happen or not or when. I only have Mac and if I'm not sure if there's gonna be a Mac version I rather not support the project.

      I played the 0.53 alpha build and I think your work is awesome. So, I ve just updated my pledge to try to help you just a little bit more. Good luck !

      @Alice We'll have a Mac version for a0.6 (mid to late May) and beyond. I was just talking about trying to rush a Mac version out this week isn't going to work.

      So, does that mean there will never be a Mac version? Can you give an updated timetable? I only have Mac, so it doesn't make sense for me to back a game that I can't play.
