Jefferson and the accompanying Videolog is online. As you will probably be aware, it is summer here on the Northern hemisphere, so a lot of us are having some time off to go on vacation, frolick in the sun and spend time with family and friends. But fear not, not everything stops. We are gathering feedback and data and hotfixing Jefferson as fast as possible, if you run into issues, please head to the forums, and even if you might not get a reply from a developer immediately, we are reading and following up on all the important threads. As I am up next for some R&R there won’t be an Intelligence Bulletin for the next two weeks, but then I expect to be back with tall tales from the Swedish forests and a lot of information on the next exciting features for the game.
The team here is currently working on four major things: First is hotfixing bugs on the Jefferson build on live, second is helping the next build Keating through it’s Quality Assurance sessions to get it stabilized, third is working on features for the upcoming builds and last, but not least – vacations at various beaches and chilled white wine in the shade.
That is all from me, and have a great Wednesday everybody! :-)
Hooray! Everybody survived! On Friday the 21st we had our annual summer party and everybody survived! Our party committee once again outdid themselves and ensured a pulled-pork fueled extravaganza of fun, tall tales, new ideas, extensive game development talks and only one person managed to fall asleep on the train and wake up in the wrong country.
When we returned to the saddle yesterday we immediately sharpened our bug hunting spears and set to work. The Jefferson build is improving hour by hour and we are doing our very best to get the build stable so we can roll it on to the servers as soon as possible.
As you might have noticed from the last couple of weeks, we try to explain the features in Jefferson before we roll them out as we know there are a lot of curious players :-) We hope that you will enjoy the new features and we will of course monitor what happens behind the scenes and improve whatever might need improving.
That is all from me, and have a great week everybody! :-)
