Desktop Tuesday, Early Look at New Game Flow

Hi. As you heard last week, we’ve added a few new members to the team. This week let’s take a quick, early peek at Yang’s first project, enhancing the starting flow when making a new game.

What you’re looking at a new screen that will come up right after you select your game mode, but before you pick your starting location on the map. As you can see, you’ll get to see your starting band of settlers and their stats. If you don’t like that bunch, you can hit the “Roll new citizens” dice to kick them out and bring in a new batch.

Of course, this version of the screen is super early. The final version will have better graphics, portraits for the settlers, and more choices to make while planning your expedition. Our plan is to have the new flow ship in Alpha 11, roughly slotted for mid-July-ish.
