So what’s been going on in the frontier? Well, now that TFTD is getting nice and stable, we’re taking the time to look at all the feature requests and improvements we had to put off because we were too busy with TFTD. 😛 This particular request has been in hibernation for over a year:
In addition, I’ve been playing underling for a change, and helping out the fine folks at OpenApoc. Check out the latest progress report. I contributed a whole 3 seconds of footage in there!
Like what you see? Then you should join the project! They could use all the help they can get.
Finally, Extra Life is coming this weekend! The yearly event where people stream games to raise money for charity, and we’ll be joining in as usual. I’ll be streaming this Saturday, 6th November, so subscribe to watch me be terrible at videogames (mostly X-COM) or to ask us anything, including “what’s the deal with aiming? are you really a robot? why isn’t TFTD out yet?”.
I’ll also be attending Lisboa Games Week the next day (I know you portuguese are out there!) if I don’t die of games overload first.
DISCLAIMER: This is not a final release! We did not ignore all your feedback for the last year! There will still be many more fixes and additions before the next milestone!
Due to popular demand and the satisfactory performance of Terror from the Deep in the stream olympics, we have decided to unleash it onto the nightly builds so that everyone can try it out. Our goal here is to get as much testing of vanilla TFTD and make sure it’s fully playable from start to end, before you all decide to mod the crap out of it. 😛 Please report all bugs and inaccuracies here, and let me remind you the game being too hard / too easy does not count.
