Good morning. About time for another update I'd say!
I've booked a booth at Rezzed! Booth 42 no less, and I'll be showing version 0.42 of the game. I can only assume that such a recurrence of the ultimate answer is a good sign and not a portent of the imminent destruction of the planet.
Did everyone in the top tiers get their invites for the London launch party? There are limited spaces so please RSVP as soon as possible. We also need to crowd source a play-list for the evening or else I'm going to put Babylon Zoo on loop all night.
The venue is right in central London so really easy to get to on the tube, but I can write a short guide if anyone finds the London Underground a bit daunting. Drop me an email if you have any special needs or requests.
Loading Bar, the venue for the launch party, specialises in game themed cocktails, so I'm running a competition to design a Maia themed drink for us to serve at the party. It doesn't need to be alcoholic, but does need to be... imbibable. Post your ideas in the comments below and we'll pick a winner this weekend. The prize is a ticket to the launch party, or if you are already attending, a bunch of really cool space themed goodies.
Posters went out a couple weeks ago. It took absolutely forever to get them all done due to me suddenly becoming a crazed perfectionist. For the UK and Europe they should have already arrived. International ones should also have arrived, but that's down to your countries mail set up. (We had a problem printing the "Medical" posters though, so I'll be contacting the people who wanted those ones soon.)
I meticulously hand rolled most the posters myself and bought extra solid tubes, so hopefully they came through in good condition, but if not, get in touch as I have a few spares I can send out.
After the mess that was February (floods, taxes and a soul destroying week of fixing the game on Intel 3000s) we're back in the swing of things. 0.40 has had a few updates now and is stable so I've started on the features for 0.41, including the most requested (yes really) feature... toilets!
I'm hoping to have 0.42 live on Steam by Rezzed. We are looking forward to and are now very close to getting the native creatures in the game. They are currently in a stage of final visual design. They are going to be very awesome.
Demodulated but not read.
