Bugs / Release Preview Bugs
« on: August 25, 2017, 08:27:46 AM »
Hey pack!
Things are getting serious. We decided on a launch date: Thursday, September 21st 2017. That is just four weeks from now! Until then all new versions will remain on their separate branches. On launch day they will be pushed on to the main branch. Now we need all the help we can get to make sure the release version runs like a charm, so all new pack members discovering the game on launch have a great time experiencing it for the first time ^^

Please note: If you just want to play and enjoy the game DON'T play this version. This version is for bug testing and feedback. Your game will automatically update itself as soon as the update runs well and is pushed to the main branch.

The launch will be an extremly important event for Niche and our studio. We would love to keep adding more features to the game and really hope it will sell well enough to enable us to do so. All infos about Niche’s future here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/440650/discussions/1/1368380934282493056/

--------------------------------------------------

What is new?
- Distinction between story and sandbox mode, selectable start islands in sandbox mode
- Tutorial (finally!)
- Steam achievements
- 5 available save slots
- Polishing and bug fixes
- Ui is completly reworked (It took me a while to get used to it xD)
- Localisation to French, Spanish, Chinese, Russian (a huge thanks to our translators <3)

The tutorial includes a few references to the intro video (which is currently in production) which are probably a but confusing.

In case you speak German, French, Spanish, Chinese or Russian, please play the game in your language and report translation issues.

Leydaa has very kindly compiled a comprehensive list of all our bugs! Please view to her list here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/440650/discussions/1/1471969431582730908/
before posting your bug. (Unless it's one of those one-time reported glitches, then it would be good to confirm them.)

--------------------------------------------------

If you are a Youtuber/Streamer:
Please inform your viewers how to access the update and let them know it is a preview version.

This update features a lot of new content and we had to rebuild the game quite a bit. Because of this older save files will unfortunately not be compatible with this update.

We are really curious to hear if the game runs well on your computers now since we hope to have fixed some of the performance issues.

Known issues (currently fixing):
- Some animal textures (mainly for right paws) are misplaced
- Blue bird fly around weirdly
- Title screen not fit for all screen resolutions

Thank you all very much for your time and support :)

Cheers,
Stray Fawn Studio

Announcements / Nimbatus - Project Introduction
« on: August 09, 2017, 02:38:18 PM »
Hi Fawns :)

Some of you might have already heard of our project Nimbatus - The Space Drone Constructor. I'd like to give you a quick intro what the game is about and what the next development steps are.



Nimbatus is a procedurally generated action simulation game. You can build space drones out of hundreds of different parts and explore a galaxy with countless fully destructible planets. On your journey you will face deadly challenges on exotic planets and research new technology. There will be various missions to test your drone engineer skills. We also plan to add a story to the game where you fight an intergalactic evil corporation.

Nimbatus was originally designed by my Stray Fawn Studio founding partner, Micha Stettler. Micha worked on Nimbatus during his free time and weekends while having a full time day job for three years. He then decided to quit his (increadibly well payed, we'll probably never earn that much again lol) job and start a game studio to finish Nimbatus which had grown very dear to him. Now we are 5 people, working on both Nimbatus and our other project Niche.

We are currently working towards a playable alpha version of Nimbatus. In order to finance the further development we will run a Kickstarter campaign in November. Shortly after the game will be released on Steam Early Access.

We'll keep you up to date with all Nimbatus news here :)
If you'd like to receive important project updates (such as Kickstarter or Early Access launch) you can sign up for the newsletter:
http://www.nimbatus.ch/

We also recently set up a Steam page, in case you'd like to wishlist Nimbatus: http://store.steampowered.com/app/383840/Nimbatus__The_Space_Drone_Constructor/

We are looking forward to your inputs and comments :D

@Sera_sara
Yes, I'll send you a key for your friend :)
I'm not sure about the difficulty settings yet. After the release of the game in September we'll have to see how well the game sells.
If sales go well we want to let the community vote on what features they'd like to see added to the game. Diffulty setting sound like an option for that :)
I wrote down some stuff about Niche's release and future here: http://strayfawnstudio.com/forum/index.php?topic=508.0

@GuiltyDesire
I'll send you a key ^^

One key is still available :)

The forum is still very new :)
I hope with a bit of time and effort we can build it up ^^
Posting here qualifies you for a free Niche Steam key. Would you like one?
