Prismata Puzzle Packs, Road to Glory, Language Support, and a big announcement
Earlier this week, we deployed our biggest Prismata update of the year, featuring our new Puzzle Pack, Road to Glory system, multi-language support, and more.
I'm going to tell you all about all that new stuff... but first, a huge announcement:
Prismata is going free-to-play on September 26th!
Prismata will still be considered an Early Access product until we complete the rest of the campaign and launch globally. But going from paid-only Early Access to free Early Access is still a huge deal. We got many thousands of new players every day when we tested a free weekend back in June, so this is when things will really start to heat up!
Also, to be absolutely clear, Prismata will fully retain its competitive integrity through this free-to-play transition. As always, we will offer no paid competitive advantages to players. There are no card packs to buy and no pay-to-win items of any kind on offer (though some of our premium single player content may make you a better player, and our glorious skins and emotes may help you win in style!)
F2P Announcement Celebration stream
To celebrate our F2P announcement, I'll be streaming Prismata over on http://twitch.tv/lunarchstudios all afternoon and evening, as soon as this message goes out! Come hang out, say hi, and ask me anything! I'll be recording a live "dev insights" video as well.
The Puzzle Pack Is Live!
This puzzle pack is included for all Steelsplitter and Rhino Tier supporters, so if you're a supporter and have redeemed your reward codes, it should already be enabled for you (if not, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll hooked you up). Engineer Tier or lower supporters can also access this new content by upgrading to Steelsplitter Tier or higher (which can be done in Prismata itself).
There is also a free 3-puzzle preview available to all players. Check them out!
Road to Glory
The road to glory is our new quest system for novice and intermediate players. It features over 30 unique things to do in the game, each with a special reward.
If you complete the entire Road To Glory, you'll be awarded a special avatar frame, certifying your status as a Glorious Swarmwielder.
Multi-language support has finally been added to Prismata. We've only just begun the process of translating the game, but you can mess around with language options now (and even add your own language if you want!)
We've had a number of volunteers in our community offer to help translate Prismata (or parts of it) to their native language, and we're extremely grateful for these offers to help bring the game to more people. If you would like to help, talk to me (Elyot) on the Prismata Discord server or fill out this form.
There are some amazing events taking place in the Prismata community. Here are a few that we'd like to highlight:
- Toble is hosting a 3-second blitz tourney this Sunday! Info here.
- RuinedShadows hosted the Prismata League season 1 finals last weekend, featuring an incredibly tense series between Apooche and MasN. VOD here.
- Prismata League season 2 is ongoing. Check out the stats, replays, and more here.
More updates coming!
Right now, we're busy making last-minute fixes and preparations for the free-to-play debut. The biggest project is adding a new casual difficulty setting to the single player campaign, which we hope to deploy next week. Check back on youtube in a day or so for another dev insights video as well.
Until then, see you!
