AVWW Official 1.500 “Linux Support” Released!

This one brings official linux support to the game for the first time, as well as a 64bit build for OSX. There is also one minor bugfix in there, too.

License Keys No More

Another nice thing about this version is that the license key that was previously required is now optional instead.  If you have the game on Steam, or you get the new tri-OS package from our store, it won’t ask you for the CD key at all.  Steam won’t even give you a key, and our store gives you a Steam key now.  If you buy it from us or any other source, then you can use that CD key to register your game on Steam.  They can, of course, still be used to unlock the demo versions of the game into the full version, as well.  You just don’t HAVE to do that anymore.

Discount Promotion!

As with Shattered Haven, Skyward Collapse, and Tidalis, we’re running a 75% off sale on our site in celebration of the linux launch. This will last until the 30th for all of these games!

 

Enjoy!

This is a standard update that you can download through the in-game updater itself, if you already have 0.500 or later. When you launch the game, you’ll see the notice of the update having been found if you’re connected to the Internet at the time. If you don’t have 0.500 or later, you can download that here.

This is a standard update that you can download through the in-game updater itself, if you already have any version of the game. If you have the beta on Steam, it will automatically update for you. When you launch the game, you’ll see the notice of the update having been found if you’re connected to the Internet at the time. If you don’t have the standalone game, you can download that here. If you already own the first game, just use your existing license key to unlock the sequel for free!

AI War Beta 7.046 “Beltsander of Worlds MkIII” Released!

This one is yet more polish work for the new expansion, and also for the rest of the game in preparation for the 8.0 official release.

That means almost entirely bugfixes, balancing, etc. Including a lot of text work and updating the Objectives screen logic, etc. Here’s what’s left (not yet done) between now and 8.0:

– We want to do a new trailer for the whole game. If you have any saves that show the game being awesome (whether that’s the AI being clever, the explosions being massive, or whatever; up to you) please send them our way with instructions on where/how to see the awesomeness :)

– I need to go through the tutorial again; I believe I’ve kept it mostly accurate thus far but another pass is necessary, and more importantly it needs to cover at least the basics of Hacking. And mention salvage, for that matter.

– I need to add entries on the steam side for the new achievements.

– Further bugfixes and balance changes based on what you tell me needs dealt with for 8.0. Generally this means avoiding big changes, but you get the idea.

– Adding in the awesome new music from Pablo. Probably my favorite part of each expansion :)

Enjoy!
