Game Development: Heading into Early Access on Steam


Welcome to the weekly Zazmo Arcade Update

Been a lot of action at the Time Foundation and we have the videos to prove it.

First off, Early Access

We did a bit of thinking about this one. The Zazmo Arcade has been getting some really good feedback from the community at large and we are working to take everything we can from you and integrate it. After a few weeks we felt the game had progressed to a near feature complete level and mostly was needing a lot of tuning.

In comes Early Access. We have set up this coming Thursday as the launch day for Early Access. We will be pricing the game at $6.99 and we are going to be giving current Boss 101 owners a discount when they purchase it. Details are still being ironed out and our hope is to bring over some of the friends from Boss 101.

Early Access ideally will give the game a lot more exposure and bring in more community feedback. On our end, we’re still sending out keys to as many people as we can. A lot of folks signed up for the BETA and we are using their feedback and our own direction to guide development. 

Zazmo ultimately will be a collaborative project with our friends, fans and you here are invited to join. If you’re reading this and are interested we think it’s always worth commenting here or even getting a copy of the game and checking it out. There are a few ways to do this and we are always open to handing out keys to fellow devs if we feel there’s a mutual interest. 

IndieDB Zazmo Key Giveaway

We are also running a contest with IndieDB for Zazmo keys to be given away. Enter here for a key if you want!

We added a first pass of wind to Tank Wars – we still are working on the shape of the breeze and directions but it’s a start!

About Donley Timeone of us since 11:50 PM on 10.22.2015

Hello and thank you for stopping by!

This is Tim and have been making games for a long time. I'm working on a new one called Boss 101 and I am lucky enough to have some amazing people working with me. Boss 101 is the product of a ton love, dedication and passion. I know that gets said about a lot of games but we are putting in the time to make things the best we can. In the end our games are YOUR games.

I'd love to give back to the game community since it has given me so, so much. Please feel free to message or contact me with any questions you might have, not just about my games but about anything you think I might help you with. I would love to hear from you!
