Here we go, the development of Oberin 018.4 has begun!
Yes, the next update is going to be a dot update. What does that mean? Mostly that, after the update, the game is going to be so different from what it is now that it deserves its own version. Expect to see lots and lots of changes and new stuff added.
Of course this one will require a lot of work from Jinker and myself, and will most probably take some time before it's even close from being ready, but I'll do my best to keep everyone informed on the progress. Most of the new things that we plan on including are taken or inspired from your very posts in the Ideas forums, that for some I must say were very constructive and well thought. It's always thrilling to begin such a big work because of all the possibilities that suddenly open up. So be sure to keep posting! You never know, your idea might make it in soon
I know I most certainly poked the curiosity of many of you, but as you should know by now, we're not too keen on giving away the new content before it's released. Mostly because it's in a state of flux, and we can never really say for sure if it's going to make it in or not, and also because it would spoil most of the fun of discovering all the new stuff when it's update day. It's also terribly fun to watch you guys playing the guessing game ^^
Such a big update requires a lot of thinking, planning, and brainstorming, we can't allow ourselves to rush in because we love that new idea and want to see it in ASAP. Every content we add puts a new weight in the balance, which needs to be tested, thought of a second time, tweaked, tested, etc...
And even then, we know we are far from done. When the update day comes and all the new content is added, we finally get to see how everything works full scale, and to receive feedback from the players. Then once more we need to rethink about this or that thing, tweak it, etc... The long road called Beta
All in one, I'm more than excited to see where this is going, players and GMs had lots of awesome ideas and 018.4 will add a whole new dimension to the game (No, I'm not talking about 3D here :P). That's all I can say for now, stay tuned
