Release Raptor Build For Testers Is Now Out!
« on: August 22, 2016, 11:57:04 PM »
Original: http://arcengames.com/release-raptor-build-for-testers-is-now-out/

Just a brief note now, to let folks that we are (roughly) on schedule for once.  It took me about 8 hours longer than I expected, but it didn't push back into a further day, so that's good. ;)

For folks who are doing testing, there's a guide that I ask you read if you don't mind.

If you're curious about the release notes, those are here.

Father Brain and procedural generation (procedural assembly?) are now in place, and that's the big news.  Then lots of little annoying things were fixed up prior to putting in new testers, based on my own experiences and those of some of our other testers we already had.

And with that I'm going to close it out for the night.  I'm going to be focusing tomorrow on getting the marketing materials and getting any release-blocker issues taken care of, plus getting a few quality of life things in there.

Then on Wednesday if the building isn't on fire then I can focus on more content.  Blue will be focusing on more content tomorrow anyhow between fixing a few things anyway, so there will be new places to explore either way. :)

Enjoy a few more screenshots from a run of mine tonight. :)

Cheers!

Chris

It is rare (if ever) that I play a game so far in the early stages.

I will continue my unusual behavior in actually trying to present mantis reports rather the rambling in the forums.

But the tl;dr is this:

In my first glance the core assets are there, just needs refining.

##honest sidebar: As I get older mantis seems all the smarter. Hurray maturity?

Update: the madness continues. In one hour I posted what was three years worth of mantis reports. I am becoming a redshirt.

@chemical_art: Thank you! :D

@TheVampire100: We're scheduled for 10am PST, and I don't see any reason to diverge from that at the moment.

Right now it is 4pm EST for me, so that would be... 1pm PST.  Sorry, I actually misspoke anyhow: it will be at 10am PST, which is 1pm EST.  I mixed the two.  So at any rate, it will be 21 hours from now. ;)

Where are you located, out of curiosity?

I'm located at Germany. So it's 23:37 here or like you would say, 11pm.
I guess that means I buy it after work, I thought I could buy it before, install it and play instantly when I return.

Ah yes, I remember now you're from Germany.  Every time I talk to a German I just want to go back again. :)
