4 comments by Rico21745 on Sep 5th, 2013

So it's been far too long since an update, but I promise there are good reasons.

Like for example did I mention that we have been GREENLIT by Steam? No? Oh sorry. 

Greenlit!

Much <3 to everyone who voted for us and believes in the project. We really are working hard to make Rebirth the game you all believe it will be, and since we're doing it all in our spare time, what really keeps us going every day is the motivation you give us through all your amazing support. Trust me, your feedback does not go unnoticed! We're extremely proud to be among the small group of games approved by Steam and we're super stoked to be able to release Rebirth when it's done to as many distribution platforms as possible!

The second little update I have for you today is actually the reason for this post. Our 2nd development diary is up. It details what I call "Procedural Level Generation 2.0" which is a huge improvement over what was shown in the first dev diary. This is the technology that will power some of the levels in the game, as well as allow us to create dynamic levels that change each time you play.

I want you to watch it. Watch it now! Think of it as a long overdue reward for your awesome support! 

Oh and maybe you guys will catch a glimpse of something... odd... in it?

Hey there,

We are prototyping the game as singleplayer first, and once we feel the gameplay is right, we plan to implement multiplayer. No first person view yet, but if we feel it would improve the game we can easily add it later.

Doing a kickstarter or something on Indiegogo might work for you in that respect then. If you haven't heard of them before essentially people who are interested in a game (or other things like movies and such) can fund its development in return for "perks". There are different levels to the perks depending on how much the one funding the game contributes and each higher level of perk as far as I've seen includes the rewards for the lower tier perks as well as an additional reward. For instance you could have it where a person who contributes $10 would receive the game on release, someone who contributes $15 would receive the game + beta, and someone who contributes $20 would receive the game, beta, and alpha.

There are some differences between Kickstarter and Indiegogo, so if you are thinking about doing it I would look into both and see which one works best for what you are looking for. ^^

(Have to admit, I can't figure out why this appeared in reply to this comment and not the one where you were talking about possible funding methods and wanting to do a Minecraft-like alpha fund. I just joined these forums so that I could suggest Kickstarter or Indiegogo to you, so I'm still a noob at replying I guess. :P)

I think if you made it free to play you could have ad revenue and micro-transactions (anything from character skins to better gear if need be) or you could have a membership deal where members would have better gear than other people. but in saying that i would like to see it free for every one

Hey commanderbrowncow,

Sure, like I said, we are very open ended when it comes to what we do with the game when we release. I'm not sure how I feel about micro transactions, but regardless, just know that we will do our best to price our work right so that it is available to as many people as possible.

I hope its not one of those multiplayer games (when you add it in) where everyone buys stuff except for those few who can't and get owned by everyone else... Anyway, this game looks EPIC.

Nope, that's exactly why I don't like "free to play" games of that sort. Thanks for the comment!
