Hey there everyone. It's sunday, around 2 A.M here in Spain.
I've mapped out the next update we'll be pushing tomorrow, but don't want to give too many details away as it's a surprise Christmas update!
One thing I CAN say is that we have FINALLY overcome the internal slump that's been keeping us from putting achievments in, expect more than 20 initially, with more to come in future patches!
It's been a long time coming and once again it's due to how we internally coded the game. Who knew making games could be HARD right?
In any case, exactly this day last year I made myself a promise that if we were even moderately successful I'd pay out of my own pocket if someone couldn't afford the game for christmas.
I'm making good on the promise. This is a serious, no strings attached proposition.
If you WANT Pixel Piracy, and do not have the economic means by which to procure it, I will personally chip in for your copy. That's it, it's that simple.
I know there will be abuse, but I hope that the christmas spirit in all of you keeps it to a minimum. I genuinely wish to help those that may not be in a position to enjoy a game very often, and while I would gladly invite each and every one of you to a coffee, beer, or sandwich, I'll never get the chance to physically meet you all and feel this is a good way to help out.
I'll be available on our chatroom here http://forum.quadrodelta.com/index.php?/chat/
every so often over the holidays, and I always make good on my promises. Open up a PM to me and let me know you can't afford the title and I WILL get it to you post-haste.
The only thing I could ask of you all is to pay it forward and help someone in need someday. I've been in dire straits before, I've HAD to eat white rice with my dog because I couldn't afford anything else. I know what that's like.
It might not be much, but it's what I can do.
Happy Holidays everybody!
