How is it possible that it feels like only a day has passed, but a year of time has passed, but then looking at the calendar it’s just one more week down?
How can time be real if our minds aren’t real? – Jaden Smith; probably.
This past blob of time has been a bit of a weird one for me, as I am constantly bouncing between lots of small tasks. Being the last week before an update, I am doing my usual ‘is this going to be good enough’ line of questioning (it is, it’s awesome:) ) and making sure I didn’t forget anything important.
This weekend is TwitchCon and I had every intention of going, even bought my ticket and booked a room. But given what my focus is, I will not be going to Twitch Con, and while I imagine it will be awesome, I think my time will be much better spent here doing development. After hitting 3 PAX conferences this year I feel I have a good understanding of what to expect at each one and don’t feel like I will be missing out on anything important by not being there.
Speaking of time dilation, I am sorry for having mis-numbered last weeks state of the game! This week we are back on track.
I really am excited about the October update. It brings with it some much needed changes and some new ideas that I know a lot of people have been wanting. I might even be able to start sneaking small references to the lore into the game, which is something I have been wanting to do for quite some time! And more so, I feel there will be an exciting way to reward players, without having a silly loot box mechanic in the game. I love finding good ways to reward players!
Speaking of rewards, I want to bring up Kickstarter. Did you know MAV had a Kickstarter? It was a crazy, wonderful ride! I have been trying to deliver some of the higher rewards, but it seems a lot of people are no longer getting Kickstarters emails. If you backed at the Leader level ($75) or higher, please go to Kickstarter and check your messages. I have tried to contact everyone at the Leader level and above to deliver the Leader rewards and the response rate through Kickstarter has been… disappointing. If you have issues with Kickstarter, feel free to contact me directly!
So many amazing things in the works! It’s going to be a hell of a rest of the year in 2017 and 2018 is going to be one for the record books. I can feel it!
May you update speculation begin in the comments below 🙂
