The Bay 12 Games Report, May 1st 2023

Mission Status

  Everything is exciting and new, much like... the beginning of a great adventure!  Adventurer Mode has the benefit of having already been completed in code.  That leaves us with two obstacles.  The UI, both graphics and input, have to be updated.  Also, there must be direction.  For some of you it may be enough to wander, aimless in an unforgiving world.  For others, there must be purpose.  We will provide this for you.  Much like the tutorial you needed in your real life, we will teach you how to live in your new, virtual, procedurally generated new home.  A world you likely will only experience briefly, but how you will have lived!

So we're trying out separate branches of development in earnest - there's the SDL/port stuff, which we should be testing soon, there's the stable branch 50.xx, and now the adventurer branch.  We need to work on all of these in turn so that everybody working on the project is unblocked, while continuing to fix up the base game.  We should see both some real adventure mode progress this month as well as another patch, aiming at logs/reports and ammo stuff and more graphics.  Let's see how it works!

Sales are down to 12k in April from 34k in March - we didn't have a sale in March, so this is understandable.  Currently seem to sell about 300 to 500 per day, fluctuating mainly on whether it's the weekend or not.  We'll see what happens to that range in May!
