Ok, so as you are all looking for some update… let me share an unofficial one :
Hi. As we are coming closer to the first playable release of Stonehearth, the working days are getting longer and longer. You might remember the break room we have showed during the small tour through our new office. We have furnished it in the meanwhile with a “Norddal” bunk bed. Now we can work 24/7 on the game and do not need to go home anymore. You might recognize that it has only 2 beds and we are 5. That is true. We have agreed that Tony will not get any sleep until the new construction system works flawlessly. No need to worry, everyone has his own duvet cover.
Some of you have seen our update on Kickstarter. Finally we have hired someone to work on the audio for Stonehearth. Actually we have hired 2 people (both working part-time) and you might know them! Please welcome “Wolfgang Amadeus Adamo” and “Geoffers Sebastian Bach” in our team. Why? They have great references! While Adamo was playing harp in his childhood, Geoffers makes some funny noises if you step on his feets. We hope to show off some first samples soon, so stay tuned.
Apart from further bug fixing, optimizing of the code, etc. I was working this week on the emotions of our civs. We hope to have them in as early as possible. As a small spoiler, here an outlook which I have made up a minute ago. You can guess when they will be tiggered:
