Hey Spark Fans!

This minor update fixes some known bugs and issues, as well as adds a few useful features. Oh, and it introduces a bonus: Retro Rising Rampage!

WHAT WE GOTS HERE:

BUG FIXES

  • Fix the “Missing Executable” bug that certain users would get
  • Fixed a crash bug that would sometimes happen when a world is generated. It was all because of a random rock. That was it. Stupid rock.

NEW FEATURES

  • Adjust mouse sensitivity
  • Adjust Field of View so you can see more of your surroundings as you get plummeted from all sides
  • Added a feedback form so you give us valuable insight into what works and what doesn’t, or if you want to share a joke or two
  • Default settings for sound, music, FOV, and mouse sensitivity

TWEAKS

  • Adjusted defaults for sound and music
  • Improved how Die Guy Lolo would react in battle when hurt
  • Adjusted difficulty settings overall
  • Remove count down timer when you die, because waiting an extra 3 sec felt like eternity says David our programmer
  • Add increased forward velocity to boost
  • An improved visual cue when you pick something up

BONUS

  • Retro Rising Rampage is now included! RRR was an early prototype we built that was a viral hit. This fun little experience was passed around the offices of Activision which we found out about because a friend happened to be visiting Activision’s office that day! You can see how elements of this prototype ended up in our current version of the game:)

Speaking about bugs... :)

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!
