Alden Ridge
« on: March 15, 2013, 10:33:52 PM »
*Possible Spoilers*


OK, so I cleared all 4 required levels in Alden Ridge.  I also found a red squid, but...well, let's just say that didn't go well  :o.  Oddly enough, when I return to the overworld, it puts me back in Ivanwood Marsh  ???.  I'm guessing I should not go there at this time.  However, I cannot for the life of me figure out where I need to go next.  I've checked every area I could find in Alden Ridge, but I can't figure out where I need to go next.  Have I found another bug, or am I missing something obvious (again)?

Edit:  duplicate attachment glitch...
My other bonus ship is a TARDIS.

Whoa, you're already in Alden ridge -- basically, none of that is complete. The cutscenes aren't implemented, half the screens are empty, and the final boss fight is only half there. We're expecting to finish implementation on that today; that's been planned out for a while, and the cutscenes had their voice acting done weeks ago, but now you can see why I'm stressing and rushing so much. ;)

Ah...that explains a lot of things  :-X...I was wondering why it was so...empty.  As for getting there quickly, I suppressed some of the completionist in me.

Totally understand the rushing.  I guess I'll play another game and try to find the mines from the front entrance.  8)

Cheers, no worries. :)

Yeah, the Alden Ridge and Ganan fields parts of the overworld are in a really incomplete state right now, though they are all planned out and have been for a long while.  Zack, who is doing those parts of the overworld, just has time to work on weekends, though, so this gets pushed to the very last.  But Josh, Zack, and I are all three basically putting in all-weekender hours this weekend to get the last stuff finished up and all the levels actually linked into the game. :)

Going well so far!

Don't mind me...I'm just finding new and interesting ways to get stuck in Shattered Haven!  No worries if you're still working on Alden Ridge or Ganan Fields--there's a galaxy-conquering AI that I need to eliminate as well  ;D

LOL I've been wandering around Alden Ridge for a very long time now so good to know that I'm not just a moron.  I'm absolutely loving the game by the way, great work guys.

The progress made so far since the beta started is incredible.  Looks like all you have left is to bring back Cerberus alive.  Bare-handed, of course. 8)

Sorry, I sometimes can't tell how obscure I'm being.
