Open Beta Update

game_updates 25/06/2017

Greetings Alchemists!

We hope you've all been enjoying the beta so far! It's been one month but we've received so much feedback and we listened. Read on for some updates on what's happening next.

Open Beta Update

Our original plan was to move to an open invite system one month after launching the beta to KS backers. As much as we hate to say this, we've had to push back on the date until the end of July 2017 (next month). Here's why:

When we launched the beta, the game relied on a third party provider for the backend system. Unfortunately, the provider plans to shut down the product we've been using. Because of this, we've had to stop working on game features in order to build our own server infranstructure.

Fortunately, most of the work has already been done but we need to allow some time to thoroughly test the game so things work as expected. Our aim is to start inviting new players by the end of July. We apologise for the inconvenience, but we're working as hard as we can to get new players into the game.

Build Update

The next build update (version 1.1.0) has already been completed. It'll be released at the end of July alongside the completion of our backend migration work. There's an exciting new feature which we think you're going to love. Various visual improvements and bug fixes have also been added based on the feedback we received from initial players.

Here's a sneak peek of what's coming. Notice anything new? ;-)
