The last release on the 30th/31st August was the first one after 8 months of awkward silence. Now it’s the time for some reckoning.
What went right:
What went wrong:
We have chosen a route where we want to keep doing frequent releases. That’s very risky thing, because we have no time to stop the development and focus entirely on fixing and stabilizing. There’s still an ongoing development. We could easily damage our reputation with having not-so-stable releases. But I am sure we will figure out something and our releases will be stable again!
Public Build vs. Test Build
Since we have such a great community I decided to use your help in deciding whether we should open Test Build for every paying customer.
Let me repeat why not everyone gets into the test build: we want to upset our customers! Yes, that’s step one. Step two is ***. And finally step three is profit.
But really – the only reason was that we wanted to limit the number of people who get into the test build and see the unstable and unpolished version of the game. We didn’t really realize that many people who can’t get into the test build would feel cheated and betrayed this way.
So right now we are considering to open the test build to every paying customer. Probably starting with the next release.
