Dev Log 1
November 4, 2013 - Mind Factory Studios
First and foremost, we just like to say thank you to everyone for taking the time to check out [code], vote, and thank you all for the kind words! They really help keep us motivated throughout the development process.
We wanted to take this opportunity to just touch base on some questions we’ve been getting frequently and give some updates on our development progress.
Question: Will the game support Linux?
Answer: This one is kind of tough for us, because we want the game to be released on Linux, but at the moment Unity (the engine we’re using) is in the preview phases of being able to export for Linux. Even though it’s able to export, it will not work on all Linux OS, nor all hardware. That’s why we really don’t want to risk you guys buying the game, then not being able to play it… But believe us, the moment Unity’s Linux support is up to par, we will be releasing the game on Linux. If you guys would like, send us an email at email@example.com and we’ll shoot you an email when the Linux version becomes available.
Question: Will the difficulty of the game increase?
Answer: Yes, the beginning of the game will teach you very basic computer science principles and will teach you how the game will flow. Progressively the puzzle will get harder and more complex until you are finally using all the principles you have learned with your puzzle solving skills.
Question: Will there be controller support?
Answer: Yes, we are setting up controller support now and the ability to remap keys in the options menu.
Question: Where can I buy this?
Answer: On Steam as soon as it’s greenlit!
Question: People keep mentioning a demo, where is this at?
Answer: The demo people have played was at IndieCade 2013 and can be found on Ram's site. We are working on another build that is going out to the press at the moment (keep an eye out for preview articles coming out over the next week). Once we add a few more features to it, we will be making it available to everyone to try out.
Question: Is that Java/Python/C++/C#?
Answer: The game is actually in psuedo code, based off of C#. We tried to simplify it and only show the code that is actually relevant to the player, and make it easier to digest.
Question: I’m not a programmer, can I still play this game and have fun?
Answer: Absolutely! We are making this game so that anyone at any skill level will be able to start playing and enjoy themselves. Just like in any other puzzle game where players learn the mechanics they need to solve the puzzle, ours will be the same. Except instead of learning how to move blocks around, our game will teach the player some basic computer science logic and principles.
Question: Will there be a level editor?
Answer: Thank you for the suggestion! That’s a great idea, and we’re not sure if it’s possible given our capabilities at the moment. But it’s something we want to explore as development progresses, and keep the suggestions coming!
Lastly, we would like to say please feel free to ask us any questions you may have. Just post a question in the discussion section and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Thank you all yet again for all the support and kind words! We couldn’t do this without you guys!
