The ROADMAP of 0.6.0, the PROGRESSION Update!


Remember how I said how now that the game is in beta, mostly polish would happen?

As usual, I lied. There's still one more thing for me to do before version 1.0 (let's say that that's going to be a one of the biggest updates). Some of this stuff will be delayed for 1.0, so there's still a lot to do.

However, here's what I want to be the roadmap for 0.6.0, the Progression Update!

  • Top Priority:
    • Rockets will not be flyable until you have met a certain goal - a certain score, a certain level, etc.
    • Save game (we all want our progress saved, don't we?)
    • More rockets! - DELAYED UNTIL v1.0
    • Rocket price rebalancing - maybe prices get higher the more you use them and the farther along you are?
    • You can fly a rocket only once every three or four deaths
  • High Priority:
    • Polish! (This is beta, after all)
    • Achievement system
    • Rewards for the achievments?
  • Medium Priority
    • Some ability redesign - some abilities aren't perfect yet
    • Rocket texture changes - again, some things aren't perfect yet
    • Other texture changes, like the medium size asteroid
  • Low Priority
    • Optimizations - this is the bane of my life but I need to do them. Maybe 0.6.1 and 1.0

Well, that's the roadmap! Snapshots will be released including this stuff, and I'm hoping to finish this update by August 1!
