You heard right! Linux support is now in! For those of you who are in beta testing you can now download Interstellaria from steam for your Linux box. Humble build coming soon! I’m very happy to now have win/osx/linux support implemented.
The updates have slowed down a bit – I am now buried in work! There is so much to do/involved with finishing a game it’s insane. I just need to find a warm comfy hole that I can hide in and finish everything!
Wow, what a crazy time in development. We’re rounding the corner towards a complete game. You’d think things would get easier at this point, but instead it’s the opposite. It gets wayyyy harder! So much to do!
I Figure I’ll just unload a few select items of whats been going on in game
NEW Cruiser class vessels! These bad boys mop the floor with enemy fleets all by themselves!
New Fighter/Shuttle class vessels! These help to fill out your fleet at the beginning of the game – flying with a single ship is really difficult early on.
New locations! Here are two
I’ve also been fixing up a lot of the way the game presents itself. More things going on in the UI, movement… Here’s an example. The newest build (for alpha/beta backers!) will have a different text scrolling effect
The pathfinding goes along with a weekly process of improving the game code itself towards release. The game is currently 266mb, but the next build coming soon will be 80mb instead! The majority of that 80 is just awesome music.
Happy new year everyone! It’s exciting to thing this will be the year we are go for launch!
