I thought it was time to do a quick update on the progress on Voxeliens as it’s been a month since the last news. Things have been going a little slower than expected, mostly because I have been moving house again. This is my fourth house within the space of a year but I’m hoping to stay still for a while now.
A fixed address also means I can take out a broadband contract… believe it or not I have survived the last 3 months on a 64kbs mobile internet connection. While such a retro speed may match the style of our game it is not great for productivity (I mostly had to use the internet from my day job). But a new broadband modem/router arrived in the post yesterday and it seems to be working so far.
The game itself if very near completion. A fair amount of testing will still be needed to ensure the game runs on as many systems as possible, and also to make sure the difficulty level is appropriate, so in a couple of weeks we will release a limited beta. Priority will go to people who have been active in our community for a while, though it may get expanded further depending on what kind of issues we encounter.
But before we get to that, our main priority is to prepare a gameplay video as we’ve been promising that for a while now. I’ll try to record it next week though it probably won’t happen until the weekend.
