Valley 2 Official1.0 "Game Launch!" Released!
« on: February 18, 2013, 01:08:45 PM »
Original: http://arcengames.blogspot.com/2013/02/valley-2-official10-game-launch-released.html

This one brings us finally to the release build of the game!  Included in this are some camera improvements, 50 new achievements, and the end-of-game cutscenes.

I'm running a bit behind on actually getting our trailer up on youtube, getting our local store page updated, new installers online, and so forth, but that will happen later today.  Also later today I'll do a 1.001 release that will include the proper list of players who made contributions during the beta period (like we have for the alpha).

But in the meantime, the game is now fully out on Steam, and 25% off to boot!

Enjoy!

This is a standard update that you can download through the  in-game updater itself, if you already have any version of the game.  If you have the beta on Steam, it will automatically update for you.  When you  launch the game, you'll see the notice of the update having been found  if you're connected to the Internet at the time.  If you don't have the standalone game, you can download that hereIf you already own the first game, just use your existing license key to unlock the sequel for free!

Congrats! I don't think you could have accomplished any more in the development time you had. Hopefully the game will be received well and sales will be good for you guys.

Congratulations on the release! It's been really fun playing Valley 2 and seeing it come together in the last few months. The Strategic bits especially are some of my favorite parts of the game now.

I frankly don't know when you fellas find the time to sleep.

Congrats, looking forward to playing this game fresh without having participated in the BETA this time. My first Arcen title in that regard ;). Now get some rest and get ready for Shattered Haven =).

Hooray!
I can already tell this is going to be a roller coaster ride of disappointment.

I feel a bit stupid saying this because you're almost certainly aware (maybe you need to wait for it to be updated by steam or something), but the old beta trailer is the one showing on steam. Needs updating... there, said it.
