0 comments by WickedLoot on Jun 8th, 2014

Since we launched the game last month on Steam Early Access, we been listening to your feedback, and planning on some big changes to the game. What we're pleased so far with is that the core gameplay mechanic around battle feels downright fun. Seems like we nailed that pretty good.

So what's next? Grab a seat and I'll share with you!

First off... Happy Birthday to the game's creator John Master Lee! To celebrate his desperate need to hold onto his youth anyway he can, we're offering up Spark Rising on IndieGameStand, and you can PAY WHAT YOU WANT. This limited time offer is to thank all of you who believed in us so far.

This is still the same game you can buy on Steam Early Access. Actually there is a bit of a bonus. If you beat the minimum price, you can get 2 bonus soundtracks to download as well as 2 bonus maps to play as well that we launched previously as demos to test out our game engine. These demo maps aren't available anymore so this is the only way you can get them.

SPARK BOT REDESIGN ALMOST COMPLETE

We wanted to inject some personality into our beloved Spark Bot, so we decided to completely redesign him from the ground up. We hired the amazing Oleg the artist, and he's conjured up some amazing concepts that mixes some WALL E and Johnny 5 inspiration into our cubed world. You can read about some of these updates here, and here, as well as check out a gallery of our concept art on Steam's Community Hub.


 

WORLD CONQUEST MODE COMING

Our conquest mode design is coming along! It's based around conquering one planet at a time, and fending off marauding enemies out to syphon the planet of rare crystals. The general idea is that you have enemies broaching each world with their mega flying fortresses, and you have to destroy each one to gather enough resources to build out your own defensive base to secure the planet. Although... it begs the question... are you protecting the planet or conquering it? 

YOUR MYSTERIOUS PRIME DIRECTIVE

If you are taking orders, wouldn't it be nice to know who is giving the orders? Is this master being good or evil. And just how faithful are you in carrying out your galactic domination plans? Here's a first glimpse of some concept art of this master being...

We're still working out the early access pricing on Steam, but it'll be lower early on, similar to the Minecraft model, and we'll gradual increase it to +$19.99 as more content gets added.

Don't reply to me, I just thought I'd point out that there might be legal consequences if you can import maps from minecraft in a commercial game, such as some lawyer or similar contacting you and saying "stop that, you're not allowed to release a map converter without [us accepting it]". You should be able to release the map converter as a "community mod", thus not really making money off it and not risking getting a cease and desist order from mojang.
Game seems cool though.

Importing content from other games isn't really an issue. The way it works is that it's more of a conversion of assets from Minecraft to our game, since we don't use the same textures and such. We're also not selling the import tool per se. It's just a feature we'll open up for others to use. But thanks for the concern!
