Wanted to update everyone on what's happening with Cadence. Work on the game hasn't stopped, we've been quietly plugging away, kept afloat by your Noodlestarter contributions and a bit of creative interpretation of our current bank account balances (Thank you so much to everyone who backed us)! I'm also currently in Sweden as part of the Stugan accelerator program - which is a great opportunity to work on the game and make some significant progress on the Sandbox mode. In fact we have some exciting news:
What does this means for the Beta program? Well going forward we'll be adopting Steam as our primary method of distributing new builds. This will be better for everyone, as finally we'll have automatic updates and a way to effectively get new builds in your hands. Steam keys will start going out to beta program backers sometime during the next few weeks, and anyone who preordered will of course get their Steam keys when we do our final release on Steam.
(If any beta backers have an extreme aversion to Steam, we'll gladly consider a refund. Our final release will still feature a DRM free version via Humble and other platforms).
As for the forum here, well I think we'll have to chalk it up as a failed experiment. We we're hoping it could become a hub for the Cadence community, but that means being active by providing people with a reason to come back by posting fresh content and keeping the discussion going. This hasn't happened, and is entirely our fault. So for now we're going to focus on our Twitter, Facebook and Steam page as our primary sources of communication, and might revisit the forum if things pick up in the future. Thank you so much to everyone that took the time to sign up!
Early Access Launch:
We'd really appreciate your support by sharing the launch announcement when it arrives! Having as many people as possible means that we'll get much better feedback, and importantly have more resources to dedicate ourselves to the game full time. Which means quicker and more regular updates for you guys!
Looking forward to making some awesome together!
