I might not answer ones that try to pin down specifics but I’ll do what I can.
:)So there ya go, hopefully that clears a few things up!
One thing is for sure…this will be the biggest game I’ve ever made.
Plus I was going to go crazy if I kept it a secret for much longer. There’s a lot I have planned so here’s the schedule I have for the incoming weeks and months: Mondays: The new Cook, Serve, Delicious Weekly Challenge update for Steam, as it has been for the last few months. Thursdays: Game development updates via Tumblr or other sites.
You can find a ton more info at 2016 isn’t really that far away, but I know a few people have asked why I announced it “early.” Really it’s for two reasons: I love sharing game development progress and getting feedback from everyone, and now’s the time to get it while development is early on, and the other is because it seemed like the right time.
was announced on the Play Station Blog and across many other sites for PS4 and Steam, coming in 2016.
Even though work has shifted to nearly 100% on CSD 2, I plan on supporting these weekly challenges for the rest of the year. Next week I’m posting a new Gamasutra article on the Steam Sale, Steam Refunds and lots more (Part 7 of the “How Much do Indie Devs Make, Anyways? That will be a nice wrap up before making posts focusing exclusively on CSD 2.
I also plan on having another patch for CSD 1 later this month to fix some remaining bugs. Saturdays: It’ll be great to get back to participating in #screenshotsaturdays, where indie devs posts random development pics.
I haven’t been able to do that in a long while so it’s gonna be fun to get back in it.
: DI also wanted to take the time to answer a few questions that I know some of y’all have had with this announcement. I definitely want to look at going to more platforms after the PS4/Steam versions are done.
The reason there’s not a simultaneous PS4/XB1 release is because this will be my first console development process, and the idea of going through two at once seemed like an insane amount of stress to be put under.
Plus there’s the whole parity clause issue, so we’ll have to see where that stands next year.
