ArkCO Weekly News #7
What a week! Following all the massive publicity last week, things have most definitely kicked into high gear for us. We didn't waste any time to dive right back into the thick of things and roll out our next patch, featuring more upgrades to the "PIOS" or Power Input Output System. The public server has seen a surge in new users as well as the amount of time spent there, as they explore the possibilities. With the new functionality of the most recent patch, it is now possible to create binary calculators, and users are rising to the challenge, creating puzzles and intricate wiring systems to stretch the limits of what the system can do.
This week we also unveiled our new musician, Composer Jens Kiilstofte. Jens is known for the work he does with his brother at MachinimaSound.Com. His talent has brought waves of compliments and has our community more excited than ever for the game's soundtrack, which will be given to Kickstarter and Collectors' Edition pre-order backers. Jens has already been an integral part of the team for several months, and is a regular on our IRC. We feel truly blessed to have him on board!
To celebrate our announcement, we have posted the opening theme song by Jens on our game's Greenlight page, to thank everyone for their votes and support. We hope that everyone will take advantage of the chance to get a taste of the beautiful musical score for Edge of Space. You can find the download here:
In spite of the wonderful success of the power grid, and the positive reviews Edge of Space is already gathering, we still feel that the best is yet to come. Behind closed doors at Handyman, Jake and Paul are continuing to pack more amazing features into the game. The next wave of ArkCo tech to be revealed may come as soon as tonight, with our weekly livestream, provided it is ready. It is safe to say there is never a dull moment where this team is concerned, and we are very excited to see where development takes us next. The deeper we get, the more things seem to fall into place on the coding end, leaving many exciting possibilities open that had previously been tabled or overlooked. We are very happy to have more ArkCoNauts than ever before to share the journey! As always, if you want to keep up with us in between newsletters, feel free to check out the forums at
