Whoa, dudes

I just saw the thread about Phenomenon 32 on Something Awful, and… whoa. Just whoa. That’s a lot of hate in one place, guys. Not sure how to react to this, really. I mean, on one level I guess it’s hilarious to see just how absurd some of the comments …

GameJolt no more

I really liked working with GameJolt; the interface is nice, the site owners were incredibly friendly and helpful, and I like the overall concept a lot. Unfortunately, the players there hated Phenomenon 32 with an enormous amount of passion. They hated it for its graphics, for having a manual, for …

Phenomenon 32 now on GameJolt

Phenomenon 32 is now available for download from GameJolt. You can also rate the game and say nice, fluffy things about it. (I like nice, fluffy things.) Since people seem to think that the latest version is fairly stable, I’d be very happy if people could start promoting the game …

Phenomenon 32 v1.4

The installer for the new version is up. All the serious problems have now been fixed, except for compatibility issues and similar stuff that I cannot influence. Now, to get the game to GameJolt (and a couple more mirrors, if possible) and we’re fine.

You can’t say I’m not interested in support…

So. ‘Twas all a mix-up. The previous patch did actually fix the “falling through the ground” problem. In an odd turn of events, I have since then updated the patch with a different approach to solving the problem that had already been solved. I don’t know about you, but I …

Patch v1.4

The new patch for Phenomenon 32 should fix the rare “falling through the ground” problem (I hope) and the issue where one of the late research fields made another disappear. The save games should also be compatible. Get it here. It’s 37MB. The new installer will be up tomorrow morning, …

And a question

I guess you really know you’ve managed to create an alien world when you get a bug report that reads: One of those mousey things in that area north of the base, with those squiggly spreadshooters, is now on the lower level of the second structure, with the E.T. thing, …

Version 1.1

I’m going to do a proper post about this tomorrow, but I wanted to let you know that version 1.1 of Phenomenon 32 is now out. It runs on Windows 7, fixes some issues with the Reconstruction Workshop, and also comes with a changelog (thanks for the suggestion). I haven’t …

Reconstruction Bug

So, one little bug has been detected in the game: the Reconstruction Workshop sometimes bugs out. Nothing lethal or game-stopping: just a small, silly error that may make it impossible to complete some projects. And I’ve already determined the cause and fixed it in the code. Later today I’ll upload …

Phenomenon 32 and other news

So, with the game out for less than a day, we have learned the following: The game probably doesn’t run on Windows 7. Still experimenting with this. The file hosts sometimes don’t work properly. I had to remove the FileFront download because the files were corrupted, and Filedropper seems to …
