Launch is next week! Got a message from Valve saying that Cloud saves were disabled (so I checked the box!) and that on SteamOS nothing in the build seems to work. I always sort of assumed SteamOS would work the same as Linux. Game seems to run okay in Ubuntu in VirtualBox, so it must be a SteamOS specific thing. Don’t know anybody with one of those though! 🙁
In other news, getting some bites on the press email side of thing. A bunch of them are from people who have previously covered BrainGoodGames, which is one of those glass-half full things I suppose. It means that people are sticking around at least once they’re “in”. Hoping to get at least a few more new faces though!
-Fixed red-text bug occurring when returning to the main menu during the enemy turn -Fixed rare bug during board spawn -Added BrainGoodGames splash screen -Fixed bug with Linux plugins not loading properly on some platforms -Potential fix for Linux sound issues’ -Fixed bug with Wizard freed from prison not enabling mirrored previews (with right click) -Added confirmation popup when about to engage in friendly fire (killing allied units) -Added option to confirm or deny placement match results
Launch trailer below. Thank you all so much for your support!!
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. You are the caretaker of one such ship, and must carefully manage the planets you find, technology cards you posses and fellow colonists as they gradually awaken from a long cryo-sleep in order to scratch out a new cradle for humanity.
