Wow! That was a fun read. And a fun trip.

But what really tripped me out was this: A full 205 (whoa!) players are thanked!

Seeing some familiar names scroll by in game was a treat.

Thanks Arcen for the many hours of entertainment.

Opened your save. My computer wept. Switched to the ST planet and ship icons filled my screen, so I zoomed out. Game told me that it _was_ totally zoomed out. You could seriously walk from one end of the inner grav well to the other without getting your feet cold.

I'm noticing a potential bug on a spell I tend to use quite a bit.  With the level 5 energy orb, I'm noticing it getting stuck on horizontal surfaces quite a bit.  It seems to happen almost exclusively when firing toward the left hand side of the screen at an angle, so the orb would sweep along the ground or ceiling, it just stops.   When firing to the right, it also seems to get stuck occasionally, but only momentarily, then continues as expected. 

Edit: It seems to happen with other spells that traditionally followed the contours of the land.

Guess I just had the bad timing of when I started the game vs. patch release time.

Yep, that bug is now fixed in official version 1.101.  Thanks!

Thanks also for the kind words on the writeup: http://christophermpark.blogspot.com/2012/06/reflections-on-valley-without-winds.html

The latest trailer is also now out (and embedded there), courtesy of Kevin Harland: kevinharland.com

EDIT: Ninja'd. ;)

Didn't you say the Hardcore Music would not be a fair representative of the game and would not be used for the trailer? ;D

EDIT: Oh, it was Tigersfan, but still...was a welcome suprise xD

Special Mission would be a badass choice for either this trailer or another one since it just makes everything awesome! ;D

Nice work, Pablo Vega and Jared Anderson.

It would be awesome, but as Chris said when it was released internally, it would almost be misleading, as it's so very different from the rest of the music in the game.

Well, congrats on getting the big patch out;  I think anyone that WASNT following along with the beta updates is gonna be a bit surprised at the sheer amount of STUFF that's crammed into there.

Cant wait to see where you go from here  :D


And interesting blog post, some good insights on the development process there.

I'm actually startled to hear you're 30, x4000.  I had thought 35-40, not sure why.

I could be wrong, but, I think actually that at 33, I'm the old guy of the group.
