Greetings from Dapper Penguin Studios!
Hello again fellow industrialists! It’s been another very busy week for us. We are super excited about all the new features and updates coming to the next alpha build. This week we want to talk a bit about making our sandbox pre-alpha demo into an amazing game that will keep you entertained for hours on end.
Our main focus now is on the full alpha version of the game. Regardless of the outcome of our Kickstarter campaign, we are committed to the continued development of Project Automata. At the moment we are working on a ton of new content that we know you will all love. Here is just a taste of what's coming up soon. You can read more about these features in this week's blog post.
Personas and Campaign
To make the world of Project Automata feel real and personal we are working on designs for player profiles that will allow you to create an in-game persona. This is something we can implement relatively quickly to add character and a unique feeling to the game. We are also working on a story driven campaign to help draw you into the world of Project Automata.
Research and Player Progression
One of the things we always wanted to be a part of the game is a research and development tree. We are in the early stages of design for it at the moment, but it is going to happen.
New Transportation Methods
We are still working hard to bring trains into the game. We have several concepts and we're getting the code ready for the next version!
If you haven’t already, please come and support us on Kickstarter. We still have time to hit our goal. It will be a challenge, but if everyone helps a little we know we can get there.
If you can’t help financially, we understand. Just help us spread the word about the game. Tell your friends, post on social media, run through the streets shouting “Project Automata rocks!”, anything you can to help us get a little closer to our goal, so we can make the amazing game we all want to see and play.
Meanwhile, enjoy a new brief gameplay video:
As always, thank you all so much for your interest! We’re thrilled to be able to share this progress with you, and we eagerly await your thoughts and feedback.
If there's anything you want us to know, feel free to send us an email or a tweet. We listen!
Until next time,
The Project Automata Team
