Title: AI War 2 v0.800 Released! "Early Access Launch"
Post by: x4000 on October 15, 2018, 02:02:11 PM
Release notes here.

Early Access arrives at last!  Welcome to all the new players. :)  There's nothing particularly huge in this update, but it fixes up a couple of last-minute bugs as well as a few bits of the tutorial.

Expect more tomorrow, and each day this week.  We've been maintaining a schedule of roughly 3-5 releases a week for a while now, and we don't expect for that to change anytime soon.

Problem With The Latest Build?

If you right-click the game in Steam and choose properties, then go to the Betas tab of the window that pops up, you'll see a variety of options.  You can always choose most_recent_stable from that build to get what is essentially one-build-back.  Or two builds back if the last build had a known problem, etc.  Essentially it's a way to keep yourself off the very bleeding edge of updates, if you so desire.

The Usual Reminders

Quick reminder of our new Steam Developer Page.  If you follow us there, you'll be notified about any game releases we do.

Also: Would you mind leaving a Steam review for some/any of our games?  It doesn't have to be much more detailed than a thumbs up, but if you like a game we made and want more people to find it, that's how you make it happen.  Reviews make a material difference, and like most indies, we could really use the support.

Enjoy!

Chris

Congrats Chris, and everyone else who worked so hard on this release. Be it writing code, giving bug reports or balance suggestions, or just being excited and enthusiastic about the process.

This is quite an achievement!

Thanks, Badger!  You are a really huge part of this, too, so don't act like you don't deserve a bunch of the kudos yourself.  This would have been a very different game without you. :)

It's more tactful to let you point that out ;-)

Guess see how balance holds up with a lot more people probably breaking it in some manner or other!

Incidentally uh...the game is 2nd in the topselling strategy list, fair few reviews already...looks good!

Still #8 on the overall top selling list for Steam, too, which is awesome. :)

Definitely been a strong showing for the first day so far.  Roughly $20k generated thus far.

Congratulations on the release; good to see that things seem positive so far. I haven't been around here for a quite a while - last I remember was the early build and it seems like you all have done some awesome work in the mean time. The screenshots with the large fleets look really impressive.
