Steam Preview ?'s
« on: April 01, 2009, 11:40:05 AM »
So I was checking out the previews at the Steam website and noticed something new about the game.  There were what looked like the wings of seeds poking out of the asteroids.  I'm guessing this is part of a new version that is currently in the works, but what the heck is it? Or what is the function?

Too early to ask?

I imagine that's grass. And a good visual effect - asteroids currently look a wee bit bland.

You'll see this soon when we release the IGF Showfloor build. A lot of nice graphical tweaks.

Alex, are we going to see someday different shaped asteroids? Circles are overrated in my opinion :D

Doing that is a possibility, but probably more work at this time than the reward justifies in the time we have left. I'd love it though.

Well, I hope you are going to add some expansion packs in the future.

I'm so pissed off I didn't get a chance to play Dyson last week. It is looking great.
I think it needs more zombies though...chasing brains. Yup, definitely more zombies.

Somebody should do a game that features loads of zombies!

Lets call it "Left 4 Dyson" or "Dyson Rising" or "Resident Dyson".  :P

Btw. in my opinion, you should create 10 levels for the final retail version because if you just integrate 6, it could be too short.
