The Puppygames Patreon
So, I thought I'd put this out there to Revenge of the Titans fans:

The Puppygames Patreon[www.patreon.com]

A surprisingly large number of players have asked us about a multiplayer version of Revenge of the Titans. The problem is that when you start solving the individual problems in multiplayer with the game design, you gradually end up, bit by bit, inventing a completely different game.

Battledroid is that game.

We've already spent over a year on Battledroid but we don't have the funds to finish it - it's going to take us another year. If you'd like to help us out making Battledroid, please spare a buck or two for us every month.

Battledroid is a free game and will always be totally free.

No grinding and truly free?! I really hope that happens. You have my support.

Thanks!! We've not really done a big push to announce the Patreon yet but we're hoping to get it up to $5k by the end of the year - a pretty modest sum by Kickstarter standards even for a whole year of funding.

So I looked at this post. Got sad that it was a free to play game for the usual reasons. Then I looked at the date. I guessing the project is dead?

I am excited for Basingstoke.

No, Battledroid continues onwards! I even actually spent the Patreon money on a huge chunk of super complicated code from a clever person. (It renders the World... all 300,000 hexes of it). I just put in a whole huge load of data information dialog UI.

I need to finish of the World screen now, just a bit busy at work at the moment. Todo on the World screen:
- Selected territory details
- A few navigation controls
- UI widgets for the various display filters to show different information overlays

Once the World bit is done I can finally move on to the most interesting part, which is the Deployment screen. Yes, the bit where you actually create battles!

Basingstoke of course also continues apace, with Chaz and Alli on it full-time. Video at the weekend!

The bundle is a great way to support us ;)

Actually progress on Battledroid has stalled for 6 months. (Gah)

We've now focused on producing and finishing Basingstoke - which is taking far longer than we thought it was going to take, mostly because we decided to make it far more amazing than we originally planned.

While Basingstoke is going on, I've been relegated to design and testing and minor biz wrangling. I suppose you might call me a producer. I fit that in around the skull-crushingly depressing contract that I otherwise have to do to maintain a roof over my head because the Patreon is only bringing in approximately 2% of the money we need for me to go back to being full-time. (We need about $5k, Patreon is managing all of... $180 :()

I think Basingstoke has got another 10 months to go or so.

The plan is, once it is released, that myself and Chaz can put some more serious effort into Battledroid again. In the meantime I'm keeping it ticking over with odds and sods.

Ummm, I didn't subscribe to this, and what did I post?

For some reason "you" had quoted the entirety of a post from July, without a comment. Steam snafu?
