Fred and I have been working on UQM2 full time since Fall of last year.  So far it's just the two of us, with Fred working loooong hours developing a cool new designer-friendly scripting system for gameplay, and me reading old sci-fi, drinking Mai Tais and trying to make something coherent out of almost 30 years of story notes and design sketches.


Wowsies!

There's beef coming up!

Launch fighters! 2 : Interdimensional Fatigue--a-loo.

On one hand I want to dive into every channel and forum and beta test opportunity, but on the other I want to be a kid again fiddling with arcane IO settings to enable sound to hear that drum intro with no idea what's about to happen.

That's what I fear when joining beta-testing groups, that you might get spoilered a bit (lot).

Hot damn...was hoping for them to "throw us a bone", but this is even more than I've expected! Can't wait for the new forums to go live, UQM discussion will spring back to life like it hasn't in almost a decade  ;D

Title: New games studio
Post by: Krulle on April 07, 2022, 02:20:30 pm
Another newspost, the developers of UQM2 have set up an official game studio to get things going.

Not, it's not "Frungy Games".

Hey all!

The patreon is up!
https://pistolshrimpgames.com/2022/06/pistol-shrimp-wants-more-than-your-brains/

basically, development is ongoing, and if you want more glimpses, please support, as this will be their income until the game gets released quite a while from now.
On the actual patreon page (https://www.patreon.com/pistolshrimp/), Dan published a video which shows more than the streams so far, graphics wise.
Have a glimpse yourself!  https://www.patreon.com/posts/chmmr-art-demo-68486324
