Hey you all, remember the big news I mentioned in my last post? Well here it is!
As some of you may remember, I've been working on my shower. When we first bought our house, our master bathroom's shower handle was broken. To fix it, we had to rip out the fake plastic insert thingy, and we're now replacing it with a nice tiled one. It's almost ready for final tiling!
What? What did you say? You're not interested in my shower, and it's not qualified as big news? What's up with the new stuff on top of this blog?
Alright, here's the real news:
My game has been approved for alpha funding on Desura. Yes, you heard me right! It is now available for purchase through Desura! The price is still $10, but I'm giving a 30% alpha discount til the final release of the game.
I have to warn you, I've struggled with uploading the files onto Desura. Desura offered two SlimDX options for its normal game installer, and my game wasn't compatible with either. So I had to upgrade the 2D engine (good thing it's open source) to use the June 2010. However, my attempts to update the version on Desura has failed today. I hope that this problem will be resolved soon. So for now, if you buy the game, you can either install the game normally, then uninstall SlimDX June 2010, then install March 2009. Or you can download the stand alone and make sure that SlimDX June 2010 is installed.
I hope to have this glitch fixed shortly! No more shady donation with uncertain emails. You can now download updates automatically!
For those who've pre-ordered the game, please provide me with your desura account name using your paypal so I can validate your email, and I will give you access to the Desura version. If you have problems with Desura, you can use the stand alone which can be downloaded through the desura website that don't require Desura installation.
This is why I've not done much programming lately. I hope that things will pick up again soon, after I've resolved the version updating on Desura.
