ArkCo Weekly News #9

If there is one thing you can say about indie game development, it's that there is never a dull moment. Even when things appear quiet to the public, behind the scenes, things are as busy as can be. Last week, we rolled out one of our bigger patches, putting our weapons, pets glass walls, chests, and even some drastic visual changes into the hands of players. This has allowed us to go back and buckle down to work on the next patch, to update the games UI. This will bring drastic visual and performance updates to the game, making the menus and interfaces that much easier to use.

With another week ahead of us before patch day, there is more than enough going on to keep everyone, especially our community, busy and happy! Starting Monday, we will start looking for our first Fan Spotlight build, to feature the amazing things our players are doing in game. We have been delighted so many times already by the creativity and incredible patience some of our ArkCoNauts have poured into the game. We have even had players build functional binary adders in the power grid! Talk about dedication! It's a great feeling to see everyone having such a great time with Edge of Space, and we can't wait to recognize our fans and their hard work!



This week brought changes to our IRC network as well, as they re-branded from Icedawn, to IndieIRC. What might seem a small change also presents a great opportunity. The indie spirit has always been about indie devs sticking together, and doing what they can to learn from and support one another. We hope that a network made for indie communities will become a gathering place for meeting other devs and giving all of us a chance to meet new people! The more gaming communities we can link into the network, the more gamers will get a chance to learn about games they otherwise might not have. We're definitely happy with our IRC home!

In addition to our other happenings, we're replacing tonight's livestream with a live Q&A session with Jake, hosted by our new friends at GlobalGamers. We're hoping for a good, and very inquisitive crowd, and we're happy for a chance to answer plenty of questions about the game, it's development, our community, and all things Edge of Space. Excited fans are also flocking to our Facebook page, as our publisher, Reverb, has launched an incredible sweepstakes to toss free copies of the game at fans, every 100 likes! We're happy to be getting so many new faces in the community, and we can't wait to welcome our new players!


As always, we want to encourage everyone to keep up with us during the week, between updates,
and come hang out with us! Our forums are always open, and so is our live chat, so don't be shy!
