Blog #29On 2 February, 2018 by Redbeet
It’s time for a new blog post as two weeks has passed since we last spoke. In a dark and snow covered Sweden we’re hard at work with development and progress is for sure being made! We get a lot of questions regarding the games release date. Since it’s 2018 now, many of you are wondering when the oceans are yours to sail, and we understand your eagerness to play. You can trust that we want to get the game into your hands too. We can’t wait to see the amazing rafts you’ll cook up and what experiences you’ll have playing together with your friends in the new version. But as much as we would like to get the game out as soon as possible, we also want to make sure you’ll get a good game with as much fun and as little trouble as possible! We still have some check boxes to tick of before we can announce a release date, but we can assure you that we’re hard at work and headway is being made each and every day!
So, what’s been going on since last time?
Surviving on the ocean isn’t always easy! Falling of your raft and losing it in heavy storms is always a possibility. This gets especially clear when you stumble upon empty rafts out on the ocean. The old rafts shows signs that people have previously lived on them, if only for a short period in time. While this tells the tale of a possibly tragic ending for it’s old owner, these old shacks usually contain something valuable for yourself to gather. You just have to make sure to reach it.
Bug fixing and balancing
In the last blog we talked about hunting down and fixing bugs. Like it or not, that’s a big part of game development. As features are added and the game gets more complex, bugs have a nasty tendency to pop up and ruin the experience. In an effort to shield you all from having to face these pesky little malfunctions, these past two weeks we’ve put in the time to locate and fix a bunch of them! In addition to this we’ve also done a bunch of in-house testing to adjust values and balance the game. All of this to create an enjoyable yet challenging experience! Due to this there’s not a whole lot of content to show you in the blog this time, which we hope you understand.
That was all for this week! We hope you’ll have a great weekend and that you tune in next time!
Good day from the Raft development quarters!
