Spacebit 0.7.5 Stable Desura Release
Long time no see! Its been a while since we uploaded a news post based on the latest release on Desura so its about time we get up to date and release one :) We found an artist to create the enviroment, ground, characters etc... so soon you will see spacebit in top-notch visual goodness!
We are also available on Indievania Indievania.com for $5.99 as a special 40% off which includes the Spacebit Updater for constant earlier updates.
Spacebit has also been uploaded to Steam GreenLight. Check it out over here: Steamcommunity.com
Any support and friendly comments you could give us over there would really be awesome and much welcomed! We really also reccomend to check out the many other games on there if you haven't already, almost every single one of them deserves your support in my opinion!
The Spacebit website has been completely reworked, including a new forum which can be found at Forum.spacebitz.com
Visuals!! our main focus at the moment is improving graphical quality, completing the new environment art, improving particle quality, effects etc.
