End of Alpha 0.30
Unscrew your guns, unplug your shields, clean your warehouses... the Alpha 0.30 session is over.
How it went?
We are very happy with the results of this session. A lot of you came to play, and seemed to enjoy the game quite a lot judging by the insane play times!
The competition for the ladders was fierce, and the game was much more pleasant to play than previous versions, in great part because there were always other people to play with. Finally, it felt like a real online game for more than a few hours!
We are definitely on track for the Steam release next version, and I think Grouroux and I will be able to sleep a bit better until then!
