TUG News Round-Up
OVER THE PAST WEEK: We have reached 74% of our goal with 6 days left in our campaign. Many many thanks to all the wonderful people who have backed us so far and also to those who have upped their pledges to help us make this happen. Your support means the world to us guys! Keep spreading the word. We can do this!!
This week we revealed a few more things about Seeds. In Feeding & Caring For Your New Seed we explained how your choices impact the development of your Seed. Some questions were raised regarding Seed diversity, which we delved into in Seeds of All Creeds!
Some of you wanted to know more about the various server types, so in Your Own Private (Floating) Island we talked about the possibilities of both private and official servers.
We all love making our own stuff! In The Art of Crafting we took a peek into what TUG’s crafting system will be like!
You wanted them, you’re getting them!! We were really excited to share more about the various types of TUG companions with you in Golems and Podlings and Wisps, Oh My!
Video Update: SCIENCE!
This week’s video update sheds a bit of light on how our backgrounds in science are driving the design of TUG. What exactly do we mean when we say we’re using social sciences to develop the game?
In one of our forum threads, Spirit_Guardian asked whether we could make some banners for you guys to use. We thought that was a great idea, so that’s what we did! If you’d like to snag one, head over here!
