Hi Defense Grid backers,
Just a quick update to let you know that we've expanded the Beta to include challenge modes for each of the maps and we've updated some of the story mode scripts (Level 4 & 8 in particular have been updated). Also, we've added a fix for aliens getting stuck, so we believe this should remove the problem for you. Let us know if you still see any stuck aliens once you have the update.
In other quick news, Jeff Pobst's PAXDev 2012 keynote on the Defense Grid Kickstarter is now up on our YouTube channel to watch. It's an hour of details about the game's history and data and planning behind putting on the Kickstarter. It isn't necessarily riviting entertainment by any means, but if the business story of Defense Grid and the business story of our Kickstarter is the kind of thing you'd like to dive into you can watch it here.
See you on the Beta!
The Hidden Path Team
