Good News Everyone!

Cults of the Wastelands is nearing release. March 20th looks good for launch. I’ve had a crew as fine as that of Planet Express testing away for the last two weeks and my goofs and gaffs seem to all be rolled up into a giant ball and ready for launch into the sun. I’ve asked the testers not to post anything until after the 20th but that doesn’t mean that I can’t. Here is a little snippet from one of them:

“I go way back to C64 days, and I’m not kidding when I say this is easily one of the best games I’ve ever played. Replay value is second to none. The addition of the cults made it that much better. You’ve really got to adjust on the fly and stay on your toes the whole time. Cooping up and letting the AI destroy each other isn’t much of an option anymore. Now they’re coming to get me. That’s also a good thing.”

A big thanks to all the mutant volunteers who took the time to help me iron the kinks out.

Finally, I have an AAR submitted by a player named Brian that is another real treat. This time the story is from the Machines’ viewpoint and it reads like a DK illustrated book. It’s a pdf weighing in at about 4 Mbyte and you can grab it here.
