Ostranauts Launch Recap & Roadmap Video

Hey Folks!

Still working on patch 0.6.2.3 here, which has a few deeper fixes taking longer than usual.

However, in the meantime, I've had several questions about where the game is going next. So I put this video together to help explain both the long term plans for the game, and what some of the earlier next steps might look like.

I'll let the video do the talking, and get back to coding. Talk to you all soon!

Ostranauts Is Cleared for Early Access Launch

Hey Folks!

It's official. Ostranauts is now available on Steam Early Access!

Roll-up a new captain, head out into the boneyard, and start picking over derelicts for useful parts. And when you find "the one," start fixing it up with spare parts and elbow grease, and make it your own. But don't forget to take a break every now and then to visit K-Leg for some R&R. And maybe convince a crew member to join you?

Live Dev Streams Now Playing On Loop

Hey Folks!

For anyone who missed the live dev streams earlier this week, they are now playing on loop at the Ostranauts Steam page.

The first day's stream was 1 hour of me playing the PAX demo with commentary. And the second stream was me playing a more recent development build, also with commentary.

Free Ostranauts Demo!

Hey Folks!

As many of you know, Ostranauts had to delay the June 11th Early Access launch. Testing still showed the game needed work, and both I and Modern Wolf discussed at length before deciding to delay it further. That's on me, and I apologize for getting your hopes up only to let them down.

I don't have a new date in mind yet. However, I do have some exciting news. Ostranauts is going to be in the Steam Summer Festival with a free demo!

Dev Message and PAX East Demo Videos!

Hey Folks!

New video day! You've been very patient, waiting for a new video since...gosh, was it December? With the rush to get ready for PAX, my video game has been lax. (Sorry, dad pun+rhyme combo.) So to reward your patience, you get TWO videos!

Dev Update Vlog

This first video is a personal message from the developer, found on a derelict Ryokka tug outside of K-Leg:

Back from PAX East 2020!

Hey Folks! At long last, PAX East 2020 is over, and I've returned home. (Somehow, plague-free, even.) And now that I'm back, it's time to take stock of the situation, and plan for the road to release!

First of all, how did PAX go?

I'm happy to report it went well! The image in today's post was the menu visitors saw as they hopped into the demo. The demo could actually be played in one long sequence from creating a captain to piloting the ship, but players could dive-in wherever they wanted.
