We have all been eagerly awaiting this day: Prosperous Universe will go into Early Access on Steam tomorrow! Just as going from First Access to Early Access with the web based version earlier, this is a huge step for us. We are casting a wider net to find new players for the game with all ups and downs that come with that. We are very confident though: The community that formed during First and Early Access is, and I say that not without some pride, one of the most welcoming and nicest I have experienced so far. Thank you and keep it up! :)

Over the course of the last weeks we set up the technical parts that are necessary to launch on Steam. There are a few non-technical parts that we cannot do ourselves, that are most important as well! In order for the Steam algorithm to work properly and recommend good games (as opposed to shovelware) to players it depends on a few key metrics. The more wishlists a game has before its release and the more reviews a game right after the release has the better it gets ranked by the algorithm. Nick already mentioned that in last week's newsletter, but I want to emphasize it again: If you want to support Prosperous Universe, please leave us a review on Steam as soon as possible after its release. It will help us enormously!

Right after the launch, starting on Sunday afternoon, the whole simulogics team will once again meet for a long overdue team meeting. Since we are a remote-only team these meetings serve as a social event as much as a welcomed opportunity to discuss what happened since the last meeting, what lies ahead and of course what we will tackle next.

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

Happy trading!
