Can't post a news update again, my accounts been super wonky, and my game updates aren't submitting... But I've been busy with school, so I'm probably going to start updating the game and responding to your comments once winter break starts! Stay tuned!
So I’m getting progressively further and further behind handling the recruit suggestions. Seriously, it took a half hour just to put in these 46 recruits, and I have about 2000 unfiltered recruits to go… so I’ll probably make a fix tomorrow that will essentially have you write the code for me. Spending 5 minutes of your time will save me hours upon hours of work. Thanks in advance :P
But it’s great to see so many people who want to get involved with the game :) I was only expecting a couple hundred times by this time, but we’ve reached 50,000 plays in just three days! You guys are the best and I hope that this game will continue to grow :)
I'm losing track of people's suggestions... If you don't get your gift multiplier within let's say a week, I probably missed you on accident. It would help if you would just re-send the suggestions. Thanks!
The buy all per page setting is up! Sorry it took so long, but I was optimizing some of the code before I released it :) IMO, it gets kinda chaotic, so I might have to tweak some more things.
And yay for us! I just saw that Idle Recruit has reached the main page on Kongregate! Woohoo!!! You guys are the best :)
Ok guys, so I reduced overall revenue and lowered some medal reward bonuses. This is has turned into a huge balancing mess for me and I need your input on how you think I should solve this problem.
I added a progression system so that newer players would have to unlock a certain amount of recruits before being able to purchase the more expensive ones.
And for recruit suggestions, I am now taking them through comments/private messages ONLY. Please see the game for more info.
This is getting to be an overwhelmingly large amount of work for me (I am a team of one person!). Between work and school, I'm not sure about how frequent I can be with these updates.
Thanks for your patience!
Oh man, this game grew way faster than I thought it would. Thanks for all the feedback, I'll spend most of today working on updates, stay tuned! P.S. For Firefox users, if you experience some lag, it might be due to some saving issues. Please right click the game, and set the storage to 10MB or higher!
So my first wave of gift bonuses came out during this update (v 1.0.1). People who sent me GOOD suggestions for recruit names were given x0.10 multiplier per suggestion! If I didn't use your suggestion, it was probably because it was too obscure, copyrighted, or there was already something similar to it . If you think I ignored your suggestion, I might have overlooked it on accident, sorry about that (please send it again)! Keep sending in your suggestions, the responses from you guys have been great!
