15 Minutes of Fame
This week we posted a few pictures of the game on Imgur, a place that can be quite hostile to self-promotion. I didn't expect the pics to do well at all, but decided "what the hell" and did it as I was quite proud of the latest screenshots.
To my bewildered delight, the pictures went viral. In 24 hours they received over 140k views and almost 6000 likes, putting them among the most viral images in the world that day. Our game was up there with a bunch of memes and funny cat pics.
This was absolutely astonishing to me. We sold more copies of the pre-alpha that day than we had over the past 4 months combined! Huge thanks to everybody has joined us recently. It's really encouraging.
New Dev Blog Posted
If anybody missed it, this month's edition of our dev blog is now out. It details what's in the latest version, and the usual development headaches and progress.
0.0.5 In Progress
Work has already started (it never stopped) on the next version. Things may be quiet around here for a little while until we have more to share about it. In the meantime there's a bunch of new users on our forum if you'd like to say hello.
Update 0.0.4 for Atomic Society is out now and available to download. Click on the link you received when you bought the game to be taken straight to the download page.
Unfortunately we weren't quite able to iron out the last bugs with save games before posting it but there's a ton of improvements to the game overall that we thought it best to get it out now. You can read the full patch notes here.
0.0.5 with save game support won't be too far away and a new dev blog will be coming later this week.
Any questions or queries about it, just let me know on the forum or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for playing!
