Brasil trip is over, back to coding!

Tue 03 Mar 2015, 20:57 by bencelot



Hola!! I'm back! I had a lovely time on my trip around Brasil and Argentina and I'm now settled down ready to code again. This time I have absolutely no trips planned in the future and will code till I get the game on Steam and make a million dollars :D :D I'm basically just going to live in cheap and warm south america where I can gradually learn Spanish as I finally get around to releasing the game. The plan is as follows:

1) First thing I'm going to do is a quick balance version to give you something new to play with. You guys have submitted some awesome feedback over the past 3 weeks and I might as well chuck as much of that into the game now so you can start playtesting with the new meta.

2) I'm going to smash out graphics, accessibility and general polish across the game until I feel it's ready for marketing. I should start marketing soon but I think a month or 2 dedicated to nothing but graphics will do a whole lot of good. It's human nature to judge a book by it's cover and I think the graphics right now don't properly represent just how awesome this game is. Once the graphics are sexy I'll take some screenshots, prepare some marketing materials and start the neverending marketing campaign.

3) Market market market. I much prefer coding and design, but it has to be done. Any help you guys can provide here is welcome of course but we'll get to this in a couple months time. I just need to smash out the marketing properly once and for all until we have the community and playerbase growing and stable. If it takes me months of writing emails then so be it. It has to be done.

4) Steam release, earn lots of money and spend it all on hookers and blow in Colombia. Hooray!


Now onto something a bit more fun. As this is a blog afterall I'm going to upload a few photos of my lovely trip around Brasil :D It's an awesome place and I reccomend it to anyone!! Here's a picture of me with Jebus in Rio de Janeiro. He didn't perform any miracles today, but was still pretty chill. Rio is a really beautiful city too. Amazing views!

I was also in Rio for carnival, the biggest carnival in the world. This is why I had to go at this time, because it only happens once a year. Anyway there are lots of pretty costumes, one of which I found on the side of road:

After Rio I went to Iguassu Falls, and god damn are they sexy! It's like something out of Lord of the Rings:

Then I spent the next few days checking out Buenos Aires in Argentina and finding a suitable place to set up shop. Found one now so we're good to go! Expect a new balance version in a couple days :D
