AI War 2 v1.001 Released! “Official Game Launch!”

Release notes here.

The actually go-live time isn’t until 11am EST tomorrow morning (the 22nd), but we’re going ahead and pushing out this version now to make sure that everything is A-OK in advance.

We actually did a small build on Friday that introduced the hacking log, but it was a small one.  Both of these add some various polish, balance, and bugfix items that are definitely cool.   We’ll do a more full post about the actual game launching when that happens tomorrow, but for now this is just the… basic notes.  It’s a very exciting and nerve-wracking milestone!

More to come soon.  Enjoy!

Reminder: Launch Is Coming Up October 22nd!

We’re now in the process of tidying things up for the 10-year anniversary of AI War Classic appearing on Steam  for the first time.  We’re getting really close!  I understand a lot of you are really enjoying the game now, which is super duper awesome.  If that’s you, and you haven’t written a review yet, would you mind just dropping a couple of brief thoughts on the store page for the game?

There’s a sea of other indie titles out there now, and I’m anxious about my career to put it kind of frankly.  Please be honest, obviously, but if you’re enjoying the game it would really be a big deal to me personally if you’d let other people know; that stuff makes a big difference in our ability to get featuring on the store, in how people choose to purchase or not, and so on.

Problem With The Latest Build?

If you right-click the game in Steam and choose properties, then go to the Betas tab of the window that pops up, you’ll see a variety of options.  You can always choose most_recent_stable from that build to get what is essentially one-build-back.  Or two builds back if the last build had a known problem, etc.  Essentially it’s a way to keep yourself off the very bleeding edge of updates, if you so desire.

The Usual Reminders

Quick reminder of our new Steam Developer Page.  If you follow us there, you’ll be notified about any game releases we do.

Also: Would you mind leaving a Steam review for some/any of our games?  It doesn’t have to be much more detailed than a thumbs up, but if you like a game we made and want more people to find it, that’s how you make it happen.  Reviews make a material difference, and like most indies, we could really use the support.
