[Ep36] Coffee w/ Butterscotch: Deep-Fried Forums

January 27, 2016

It's our first podcast since Crashlands arrived on Steam, iTunes, and Android. We talk about the game's current success, some of the trials of launch, and how we're all A BIT WIPED THE HELL OUT.

But, we did apparently make the best iOS game of all time, so we got that going for us, which is nice.

What's next for Crashlands?

January 23, 2016


WE DID IT!
Crashlands is out and about, fluttering and flittering and sputtering in the breeze, and it has been one heck of a ride for the three of us. Against everyone else's better judgement, we decided to go through what we have been calling a "quad-launch" -- launching on four operating systems simultaneously -- and it... actually worked!

Granted, we have barely slept in 3 days and have been hunched over our computers so hard we're all about to slip a disk, but HOT DANG! We did it.

Now that the insanity of the opening couple days of launch has died down, we've had some time to sit down and plan how to make this giant beast keep on kicking.

Crashlands Patch Plans
Just because the game is out, doesn't mean we're done working on it! We have a schedule laid out for making sure everyone in the universe has the best Crashlands experience possible. Here's the current plan.

Crashlands: The Manual

January 20, 2016


One of our favorite parts of childhood was driving to the CompUSA 60 miles away from home (in Des Moines, IA) and scouring the 2 rows of PC games for our next buy. It was such a rare opportunity that we'd easily spend a good hour or two among just 20 titles, reading their boxes back and forth trying to make an informed decision. This was before there was much of a games review scene (or internet to access it).

On the way home from those trips we'd rip open those game boxes and begin devouring the manuals that came with them, so we could be totally ready when we finally got to sit down and play them a few hours later.

Primers for games have gone the way of the Dodo, which is a bit of a shame. So, to prepare you for launch tomorrow we've created the Crashlands Beginner's Guide below. It'll run you through the cast of characters you'll meet, provide some history to put the world in context, give you pro-tips, and much, much more.

[Ep35] Coffee w/ Butterscotch: Codename BRUNCH

Shove your nose up against this CRASHLANDS pre-launch podcast and INHALE DEEPLY! We answer all the questions you've got about this big ol' game (and some you probably don't have) and talk about the biggest question of all - "Will it be worth it?"

Spoiler: YEP.

[Ep34] Coffee w/ Butterscotch: Desserted Wormhole

January 13, 2016

First podcast of the year! To make up for last week's missed podcast, this one has a whole extra 30 minutes. In this episode we give a quick summary of where we are and where we're going, then dive into video games we're playing (KOTOR, Hand of Fate). We end the cast with talk of deserted islands, visiting the mind of your former self, and coffee.

Edit: Sam's PET Scan results came back - NO CANCER! WOOOHOOOOOOOO!

We're in week two of Crashlands Beta and Adam already has the Hot Butt. Our testers have accumulated 100 days of testing, to match Sam's 100th day of having a new immune system. Finally, our gramps is invincible and competitive multiplayer is lame.
