Hello everyone! The biggest news is that our AI and event system developer Denis Lomako is back to work. He feels good and he is eager to finish whatever is left for him. He is still under doctors observation after his surgery, and he started from home a week ago, but now we are happy to see him back in our office.

We would like to thank those of you who participated in beta test of our Scenario Edtior that was announced a bit earlier. We didn’t expect many new ideas and suggestions from you, but it is great to receive them. It’s a pity we won’t be able to implement them all because of lack of time and resources but still…

 We are very happy with this way of collaboration where anyone who wants to dig deeper can enter a password, download the latest developers’ build for Steam and see what changed – a sort of beta in beta. There are players thank to whom we learned about some new bugs in the game and in the editor and we fixed a few of them. Beta testing turned out to be a good opportunity for looking how new ideas work and we hope to repeat something like that in the future.

 If we talk about statistics, right away after the announcing beta test we uploaded to our official Youtube channel videos with brief overview of the Scenario Editor in English and Russian. 193 people watched the video in Russian, 640 in English. Unfortunately, Steam doesn’t provide information (or we didn’t find) how many people downloaded test build so we can only look for clues in the forum here and in these numbers. With a hope in our heard we look into the future where we the next large update comes out.

Next update is going to be huge. Many bugs are fixed, the Editor and new scenario will be released officially, our new section of Steam Workshop to be used for everyone. Also, there is a high chance we will finalize new interface that we redesigned according to your feedback. We still will need your feedback on this new interface and we hope you will like it. We use it already for a while internally and we think that with new interface the game will become easier to play and navigate not only in terms of usage but also it will change the way it looks and feels.
