It’s worth spending some time thinking about the positives in the year just gone, about all you’ve accomplished. I bet it’s more than you think it was! And then think about all the cool things you’re going to do in 2017. Maybe you won’t do them all, or any of them, but it’s worth trying. You’ll likely get distracted from some, or go off on a tangent that leads you onto some other cool stuff. And yeah, there might be some less than cool things just like 2016, but just for right now, just focus on the good. We can deal with the rest when we come to it.
Whoever you are, wherever you are, have a wonderful 2017, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
The new year is almost upon us and it’s time for the holidays, I hope you and yours are having a great day whichever way you chose to celebrate it 🙂 And if you don’t celebrate it, I hope you have a great day and don’t get too annoyed with those of us who might be a little too loud in our celebrations 🙂
Today’s post will be quite short, I’ve been struggling with a cold for the last few days so I’ll just give a brief update on where I’m at right now. I re-scoped the UI update as I had been far too ambitious with what I wanted to get done in it. I haven’t so much gotten rid of features as I have moved them to another update. This update will make UI functionality (Is that UX?) the hero of this update.
Usability and feedback to the user are what I’m focusing on, and I’ve made heaps of progress on that front. I’m have an almost working version of what I want just a couple bugs I need to work out and then I can spend a bit of time putting the UI back together in terms of design.
Apologies for the short post this week, hopefully I’ll be in better health next week 🙂
Station Generator will launch tomorrow (14th October 2016) at 10am pacific time (18:00 GMT) on the humble store with a 25% launch discount for 1 week. This is potentially the cheapest the game will ever be as the price of the game will rise with every major update and I don’t plan to bundle the game for the first year, if at all.
The game will of course be DRM free and downloadable from humble itself. In the future I plan to run a Steam Greenlight campaign, and if successful, anyone who already owns Station Generator will receive a Steam Key.
A couple weeks ago I posted the script for the Station Generator trailer. I’d been finding it difficult to progress on this. I was reluctant to get started because I find the whole idea of recording a live action segment for Station Generator (Or anything I guess) to be quite daunting. I’ve never done anything like this before really. The last time I did, I had a lot help from professionals, this time I’m on my own.
With the release of the Station Generator to Early Access on itch going well, I decided to try to keep up the momentum and apply to have it added to the humble store. They replied very quickly that they agreed it should be on the store and were happy to get the ball rolling!
