EdenStar v.0.0.6 update!

Greetings Pioneers!

This week there have been some fairly major changes made under the hood, namely our super buff and shiny A.I. manager. But what does that mean for you, our lovely players.

It means enemies that are more organised more responsive and have the ability to become sentient and TAKE OVER THE WORLD!...oooook so we may have made the last bit up but the rest of it is nothing but the truth. We’ve also added another spiffing defence turret, which casts out a stun beam to subdue those pesky bugs. It really is rather bosh lasers and gentle beams (pun very much intended)

Additions

  • Added Laser Turret - A new defense structure which fires a bolt of energy at its target, pushing it back and stunning it, allowing you or other defenses to finish it off.
  • New AI spawning system - Amounts of AI sent to your base are now limited per night, and are more consistent in their spawn pattern - meaning you will not get overwhelmed if there are high amounts of hives nearby. The difficulty should still increase each night while keeping the flexibility of reducing the amount of AI that attack by destroying hives. Please let us know if you have any feedback!

Additions

  • Added confirmation pop-up on selecting Exit Game from the Pause Menu.
  • Removed Eden Kit Shield Entered and Exited messages (The Toxicity Meter displays your shielded status).
  • Increased the number Foundations you begin with in Normal mode to 15.

We've also made a bunch of new bug fixes to add further stability to the game. The full change list can be viewed here. As ever you can also view our known issues on the super awesome, super public, public Trello board. To keep everyone on point with what we have lined up for future updates, the team is working tirelessly towards adding the much needed variety that we have designed for the world.

This includes adding neutral fauna creatures and new biome areas to the Island. Without further hesitation we’ll leave you with a few preview images of what is in store in the coming months (Everything you see here is a work in progress and may be subject to change)

Met Kyle and Andy at Razzed 2015 today. Top lads.
I remember seeming Eden Star at EGX 2013 and it was very minimal. 'Tron like' they called it. Now it's a lush, and frankly beautiful, world. It plays smoothly and has some surprises (the mad Glove of Awesome flinging of creepy wazznames into trees is brilliant). Looking forward to the guys filling the world with even more critters.
What I saw was very polished and very impressive for the work of a dozen or so peeps. Keep up the excellent work.

Thanks SLAYER!

Looking forward to the next update, it'll have far more to do in it and a lot more balanced AI.

Share your thoughts and suggestions in the forums!

The new build is Wonderful!, I however cannot seem to find the eden pack..
Am I missing a beacon or is my understanding of the interface convoluted?
No "M" map button concerns me.
That said, Had a wonderful run, just need more navigational tools. Or I dont see them.

Hi Jet, it's early days still so there's no map yet, however if you look on the cumpass at the top of the screen, there will be a bright yellow marker that shows where your Eden Kit is!

At the start of the game there is a short placeholder Cutscene that shows debris falling through the atmosphere - follow the pillar of smoke :) you'll find it. There may also be a few other places to check also...

Thanks Johnny, I saw the yellow indicator, though it never seemed to trans pond to the terrain.
I will give it another go this morning.
Thanks for the speedy reply.

I'm untested. But since nearly no game fulfill promises in early access, I can't trust my money before release.

Hope you will be an exception.

Still, until the release.

Hi Dreamer, thanks for the comment :) We hope so too. Our aim is to make the game the best it can be through Early Access.

Keep watching videos and other players responses to Eden Star in the mean time, and hopefully you will like the features we have in there already.

Is there anything in the game you're looking forward to seeing in particular? We would love to hear from you about it! :)
