welcome to another Blackwake update. A few days ago we had another big play test with Malakith Skadi and his awesome group. We had some major problems initially at the start as well as some game breaking bugs but it went a bit smoother in the end as you can see in the video.
Two bugs we had were absolutely crazy gameplay wise. Some team mates would be wearing the enemy's uniform so team killing all around, and the ships were unable to turn right! So ships were going around in circles while people were killing their team mates. A little bit hilarious and sad at the same time. Having more players in the game during testing showed us new problems. After the testing had finished we were able to fix those problems easily.
Doing this test allowed us to see our networking limits especially with Unity Free. It's such a shame that Unity is limited to so many things and to further the experience requires you to pay for third party assets.
So with that said, we have been planning for this a long time even since march earlier this year on running a Kickstarter to cover all expenses for development. We hope to be launching a Kickstarter campaign within the next month.
With the Kickstarter not only will you be supporting us, but you'll also receive some goodies like exclusive supporter items and early game access before release.
The next update we have we will be launching our Kickstarter campaign, as well as a new Kickstarter press release trailer. So follow us if you would like to keep your eye out for those!
