Congrats to Vivafringe! He’s earned a snazzy “Weekly Challenge Winner”
Discord role to go with his launch event winner role.
Looks like he has some stiff competition coming up from Kenbutsu, Pocketknight, roberto and Allan. Lots of strong players competing!
So it’s official! Solar Settlers is the most sucessful BrainGoodGame launch ever!
Not without a little turbulence along the way (I deleted a couple peoples saves by accident yesterday), but on the whole I’m very happy with how things have gone.
Now as soon as I can get 1.01b out the door I can rest a bit…

It’s been a crazy ride making this one. It started off with the simple idea of exploring space by playing cards, and it quickly grew beyond the scope of every other game we’ve made. Tried out a whole lot of new stuff, especially in terms of XP/unlockables, and I think we might have achieved the most complete BrainGoodGame package to date. Hope you like it and can’t wait to hear what you think! Onwards and upwards!
Solar Settlers is a card-driven space exploration strategy game set in the far future. Our sun is on the verge of collapse and so mankind has taken to the stars aboard colony ships to seek out a new home.
This is it. The final battle.
The battle to STOP CODING AND JUST TEST THE GAME.
It is very difficult…
One more day! Hopefully can get in one more late night playtest tonight to set my mind at ease.
