Happy New Year from the PrUn team! 2021 is shaping up to be a very exciting year for Prosperous Universe and we can't wait to share it with all of you.
For the past two weeks, I was on vacation. I was unsure about whether this bit of info would be newsworthy enough for a paragraph on the devlog. But I decided it was. Here's why:
Initially, I didn't even plan to take that much time off. We already postponed the EA release twice because my backend work was behind schedule so much, even though I spent every fee minute on it towards the end of 2020. So I really didn't feel like I could afford the luxury. But my better half essentially forced me to take some rest between the holidays and the new year...and I am very glad she did. Frankly, I was quite exhausted and there were a lot of things on my mind that required some quiet time to think them through. A lot of those revolved around Prosperous Universe...how and when EA will launch, how we are going to get the Mobile UI project across the finish line and where the project as a whole should be headed in 2021 and beyond. None of these decisions is finalized yet, but at least I have a vague idea of what I am going for. So yay for a few days of doing nothing (and playing a few video games)!
So with that, a Happy New Year to everyone! Expect a lot of news over the coming weeks!
I hope everyone had a great holiday season despite the current events going on. I was not able to return to the US this year for Christmas, so I stayed in Germany and celebrated with friends. During the days between celebrations, I continued to email press and check developing news stories on games that were similar to our own. I hope we can at least get an article or two written about us while the news is a bit slow in the gaming world.
I don't know if you guys have seen Spacedock's video that we sponsored, but it brought in a ton of new players! I think this has been our most successful paid campaign yet. I am hoping to work with more influencers now that we know what an impact it can have on bringing in new players. If you have a favorite YouTube or Twitch channel, please let me know in Discord!
Happy New Year folks! I was working on the new design for our website blog pages over the holidays. I hope this teaser for the upcoming website reveal will get you excited!
