Here is the latest in my surprisingly (to me anyway) regular series of vlogs on developing Production Line:

This video has me talking about some of the new graphical tweaks to the game as well as a short talk about the alpha, which I’m planning to start in about a weeks time, with pre-orders for $10, direct from my site (using the humble widget, if I can get it sorted out in time :D).

I’m really keen to get the game in the hands of some real paying gamers to get their opinions on the design, and ask them what they would like to see. I’ve never done Early Access before, and although when that trend first started I really disliked the idea, I have totally come around to it. Next week should be really cool :D.

    $10 seems a pretty reasonable price. Assuming a retail price of $20, it’s steep enough to feel like a really good deal. Your reasoning about wanting to exclude people who just grab it because it’s $5 seems logical to me.

    A brief note: the car icon colors, particularly the yellow vs green, are very similar to me. Might be my red-green colorblindness.

    I’ve got more thoughts, but perhaps I should wait until I have actual the game in front of me in a week or so. :-)

    Can’t wait for pre-order. $10 sounds very fair.

    Very excited to be able to play this. I have been following your progress on Twitter and YouTube. $10 is perfect.
