So there is lots going on…
In case you missed it we opened up redshirt to pre-orders and beta. You can grab the game right now from here:
We have a few bug reports we are working through and trying to fix, so we will be planning on patching those the minute we track it down. It seems like 95% of people aren’t hitting any problems, which is a relief.
Regarding redshirt, a few people have asked about mac,Linux and iPad. All are planned, and the game is developed in unity. I’ve played it on my ipad in the past. It shouldn’t be *that* tricky to get the mac, linux and ipad versions done, but we didn’t want to ship anything that had not been extensively tested, so right now the beta copies are PC-only. Obviously we are as keen to have the game out on those platforms as you are to play it, but give us a while to sort it out. Plus I need to finish up my mac developer account application. Typical of apple to get hacked the day I wanted to apply isn’t it?
For people who might be asking ‘where the hell is Democracy 3‘, the answer is ‘it will be here very soon’. My plan with D3 is to actually have Mac, PC and Linux builds together in it’s beta from day one, but that means a delay while the finished and now un-touched code gets ported for me by someone who actually understands OpenGL and linux :D. The minute those builds are done and uploaded, I’ll open up Democracy 3 to pre-order and beta just like redshirt.
You wait years for a game release date to come along, then they all show up at once eh?
