Onboarding Smoothness

Onboarding Smoothness

Almost a month after the last demo, I bring you a brand new demo with the main focus of “onboarding players” and making sure things are more clear and obvious to especially newer players.

I’m slowly building a roadmap towards a release, and with this demo the main focus was on creating a better experience for players which also makes the demo more usable for Streamers to showcase the game. So in the coming weeks/months I will be able to contact various streamers and see if they are interested in taking it for a spin.

Regulator City will also be part of various events and things requiring a good demo, so I’m REALLY happy I got this out the door!

A large amount of work has also been put into tweaking and perfecting the interaction with your Squad mates and also the enemies. It’s a big improvement over the last demo, so make sure to check it out! (And don’t forget to Wishlist the game)

In this weeks video I also played the game a bit and gave some more background information on the various tweaks and changes made to improve the experience for new and returning players:
