Stream is LIVE!

Video live stream during the kickstarter! We were thinking that it could be fun to allow you all to sneak into our offices whenever you want, during the kickstarter campaign. It’s starting today, and we’ve already put something on the program. At (GMT) 8.00 pm today, Peter and Steffen will try to design a level live, and you are more than welcome to watch. 

This is very much an experiment, and we hope it can be fun for both you and us, so if you got things you want to see, please suggest it :) 

We’re gonna take a relaxed approach to this mostly going where the flow of the chat takes us, so if you want to see a coder work his magic or a designer do his thing - then we will try to achieve that! Being the game developers that we are, we’ve created a bunch of achievements for this. So whenever more than 25 of you are watching, we’ll do as Valve does, and equip some random hats! We might even be open to going bald for this, if the goal is met ;) 

This stream will continue as long as it is interesting, so if people enjoy it and want to see more, we’re prepared to go the distance and continue this up until and including, launch day. 

The week that went away 

This week has been focused on development. Our programmers has begun the final stages of our Network, where they - after much brainstorming and teeth-grinding - were FORCED (heh) to ask the development community for guidance. The community answered the cry for help, and in an astonishing display of generosity, one of the Network Programmers at Stunlock Studios (Bloodline Champions), agreed to a live Q&A sequence. 
This resulted in some great cooperation, and our programming team have attacked the issue with renewed vigour, promising an in-house test within the week! There were much rejoicing. 

We’ve received some great mentions since last update, primarily from the youtube community. Here’s our favourites:

Thanks for reading, please take a gander at our cozy stream, and if you have any questions post them either there or on our accompanying Reddit post, where there’ll be less chance of it being overlooked. 

FORCED love
The Dwarfs
 

Ps: It would be fun if you would equip your facebook cover with this for a few days:
