ArkCo Weekly News #10 - Gaining Momentum!

ArkCo Weekly News #10

Wow! ArkCo news #10 already! Hard to believe we've been writing that long, but it's pretty exciting. What started out as a recap to things we posted during the week, has evolved into a chance to talk with players and newcomers alike, and present the ever changing picture of Edge of Space, and where it's going. The game is coming together so well now, it's surprising even to us! We've mentioned before that sometimes things just flow together so well, even better than expected, and that's absolutely been the case over the last couple of weeks. The frameworks that we put in place as the foundations for the core features are really paying off. Lead designer/CEO Jake even remarked, "Things are coming together TOO well!" It's been a question of where to stop for the next patch, trying not to include so much that players would be overwhelmed. It's a great position to be in as a developer, not worried about having enough content, but instead having so much to choose from.

This week we're very excited to show players the new UI! The community has been awaiting a much more organized crafting menu, as well as a system that is more than a placeholder. We are very happy with the look and feel of it, and look forward to hearing everyone's thoughts as they get hands on time with it. Barring any explosions in the labs, we hope to have our beta players in game with this earlynext week. It will definitely be a different experience this time around, with the game taking on so much more of it's own personality, and moving closer to our vision for the launch version. We won't give too much away here, but this patch will have quite a bit more to talk about!

Never satisfied with just the announced patch features, we are extremely excited for the weekly livestream tonight. We have plenty of secrets and surprises to unveil tonight! Not only will we be streaming tonight, but Tuesday, February 12th, we will be joining Ariablarg on Twitch TV for plenty of fun with Edge of Space. It's always a pleasure to spend time with other communities and meet new people! It's an amazing feeling to have interest in the game on the rise, and to see so many people enjoying it now. We feel very blessed to have the community that we do, and all the support that we get every day.

Our virtual doors are always open, and we want to remind you all that you're always welcome to come chat with us at #edgeofspace, or visit our forums to see what else we're up to!

Stay awesome, and we'll see you in space! Thanks for reading!
