We're now at 73% done with about 12 days to go, so we're ahead of schedule! Thanks everyone! We got a huge boost yesterday from Youtubers GamersDissent and Scott Manley, thanks guys and everyone else showing the game on Youtube! But we can't relax yet, so please keep on informing more people about this game! On Steam Greenlight, we're now at #29. We're about 4000 votes from #20, and we're moving at about ~1000 votes a day. Will we make this round of Greenlit titles on the 17th? Who knows, but it'll be fun to see. As it stands, doesn't matter if Planet Explorers makes it this time or not, it looks like it will be on Steam.
Once we hit 80%, we'll put up our stretch goals. And there are some very nice goals on there. :)
Today, we're going to talk about the wall. No, not that wall made of ice. In Planet Explorers, the wall is a pretty long and pretty large defense structure that stretches from the northern shores of the Galileo Continent to the south edge of the Eastern Crater (and it will look majestic!), over rolling hills, vast plains, and steep mountains. It was made by the Reuzen aliens some time ago. We know for a fact that there have been many battles fought around the wall, as many parts of the wall have collapsed.
From close observations, the wall seems to be made mostly of limestone (we do wonder where they got the stones from). There are still some active weapons on the wall structure, and some parts are still regularly patrolled by Reuzen troops. Worst of all, there are a number of giant walkers embedded in the wall structure, extreme caution is advised.
Beyond the wall to the northeast, the Reuzens live in small townships and camps as far as the scouts can tell. The wall has several gates along its path where the Reuzens travel through. Our scientists assume this structure is similar to the Great Wall back on Earth, a strategically useless antique from a long time ago.
