An unusual week warrants an unusual devlog: If you follow this blog, our forums or any of our social media channels, it was hard for you to miss the news about the reset of Alpha 6 and the consequent launch of Alpha 7. And that’s essentially what dominated the whole team’s work schedule for the week.

While Julian was busy getting the word out, Michi and myself took care of all the technical preparations, like resetting the production cluster, fixing last minute bugs and monitoring the first hours of the restart.

Michi joined me at simulogics HQ for this, so once the most urgent and critical tasks were taken care of, we took some time to discuss our upcoming milestones. While we merely clarified the changes we had already decided on for the next release (the ones we discussed on our recent live stream), we also looked beyond to see what the priorities will be afterwards. We’re not ready to disclose any of our plans just yet, but we feel like we have a pretty good idea of where we’re heading.

Last but not least, Julian set up a little key giveaway on our Discord server: If you want to get Asteroid-level access to First Access or know of a friend who might be interested, head over to our server and keep an eye on the #announcements channel!

As always: we’d love to hear what you think: join us on the forums!
