It has been a while since the last blog post! Gamescom 2023 was an incredible experience (coupled with jetlag that took about a week to recover), and then I went straight into NZGDC to show off the game at the Kiwi Interactive Showcase.

And there has not been a moment to rest! We’re now getting ready for presenting the game to the public at PAX Melbourne in two weeks time! We will be at the NZ CODE - Booth #1140 in the expo hall, along with 19 other New Zealand-made games. I’m really excited to show the game off to the public, I expect it will be like a super amped up Armageddon expo.

At PAX, one of the things we’ll be showing off is brand new solid element art that Care has been working on ❤️ It is beautiful and really makes the game pop. I’ve also used this as an opportunity to rewrite the element edges to make them clearer and faster.

From 12 o'clock, going clockwise: sand, dirt, graphite, coal, basalt, salt, ice, and gold. With a few blocks of transmitite.

The next release (Alpha 6) is almost ready and will be presented at PAX AU, but I don’t think I’ll release it on until after PAX – that way it’s an exclusive experience for attendees 😅
