We’re still madly working to get the N v2.0 public beta out before the end of the year… it’s going to be close, and although we REALLY tried all year to avoid this last-minute panic, sometimes there’s nothing you can do!
We had hoped to be done early so that we would have time to play through the whole thing one last time, however that doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. Rest assured, as you celebrate the new year, we will be playing through levels long into the night, ringing in the new year with ninja-body-part fireworks.
Anyway, we should have good news for you sometime in the next four hours… stay tuned! Or, better yet, go out and have a great New Year’s eve, and the beta will be waiting for you tomorrow 🙂
EDIT: please see our comment below… long story short, we have a build running and it sucks. We were hoping to only have a few problems, but this is unplayable… somehow there are crashes that don’t happen on our version that do happen in the final version. UGH.
We’re really sorry if we’ve ruined anyone’s New Year’s Eve… it’s definitely ruined for us. We’ll be back tomorrow with hopefully better news.
EDIT: okay, we seem to have resolved the most egregious bugs so we’re going to put it up (new blog post coming soon), however it will be *much* better when we’ve finished fixing all of the remaining problems. Here’s the current version:
Known bugs/problems (which we’re working on) include:
- login/signup is broken;
- mainmenu relays aren’t working;
- episode/level numbers are wrong;
- game uses arcade-mode timer/gold rules (whoops.. bit of miscommunication);
- jittery performance (especially on some win7 computers);
- sounds cutting out;
- glitch when wallsliding at the top of the screen(?!);
- buttons/UI isn’t completely finished/polished.
