So the prototype is released, patched and functional (enough for the moment). We’ll be attempting to fix the mac build so that it works for more people, but aside from that, we’re somewhat satisfied with how things went. This means we can now start thinking about the future.
This is pretty much the first time since last January that we’d had time to stop for a breather. For those of you who have been sticking with us since the beginning, you know we’ve pretty much been rushing head-first since day one. It’s an exciting but grueling experience in which many decisions are taken without thinking much and long-term decisions are constantly being pushed aside for more daily concerns. The time has now come to settle down and plan for the next few months. We know that once the Beta is released, the crazy train will start again and we won’t have the opportunity to stop.
This week, we welcomed a new member in our team; we will introduce him in the next blog. He fills in an important role that was previously lacking: network code. With our team complete, we can now tackle important decisions that we had been delaying for a very long time. Unfortunately, we cannot reveal much about that because we have not come to a lot of conclusions in such a short amount of time. But no worries, you’ll get to see this all unfold in the next few weeks.
A Castle Story minecraft skin?
This week, we had the rather wonderful surprise of discovering this Minecraft mod, essentially a skin/map inspire by Castle Story. We visited the server, and hung out with the care takers of the server. Loads of fun, that definitely made my morning as far as I’m concerned.
More stuff next week
Anyway, sorry about the lack of content this week, we were mostly settling down and the blog sort of took the wayside. We’ll be back next week, so stay tuned!
Soundtrack of the week
It seems Grooveshark is coming up with a new design for their website. A lot of features have been turned off in the meantime, including the playlist embedding widget. Lets hope their sort their shit out for next week, because I’m not liking what I’m seeing so far.
Here’s a link to this week’s soundtrack: A local Québec band that I discovered recently and liking a lot. If you can understand the lyrics, good for your, but the music stands on it’s own for you non french-speaking readers. Enjoy!
