Well what a huge Early Access launch! Since the game has been available on Steam we've had over 150k installs of the game, 140k matches hosted and over 2,400 maps published. While the user rating for the game is mixed, we need everyone who really enjoys the game to get in there and leave us a positive review :)
Moving forwards now we are focussed on adding the remaining big features we had planned and all the theme content in. This should happen over the next two months. We are also putting in content that we hadn't planned on, but has been requested from the community. First up will be some types of window blocks!
Hopefully these will let you start to create even cooler maps!

Well what a day (and a bit). We had a slow start with the missing buttons in Steam, but its all good now. Thanks Valve!
After that was fixed we got a lot more traffic than we expected for a silent Early Access launch in the middle of the night (while the Blowfish team was asleep) and it caused the server to go down... oops! Some quick work from Jessica and Kyle brought it all back together though, thanks team! :)
Please remember the game is still in Beta / Early Access so there are quite a lot of bits which are unfinished and there are many bugs. We are endeavouring to get the game finished as soon as possible and you should see many frequent updates and improvements.
Submit all your bug reports and suggestions via the forums and check out our public Trello board!
See you in-game!

Check out our very first special seasonal pack of in-game elements! This is a mini-pack of blocks that we can give out using the new voucher system in Gunscape. So long as you are logged in you can apply a voucher to your account and receive the goodies! Here are 8 vouchers now, if you use one please post in the thread which one you used.

The first part of our development journey is nearly over and Gunscape should be entering Steam Early Access any day now! So these are the last days that Founder packages will be available. We'll replace them with similar ones, but they won't be valid for all platforms. Unfortunately for reasons to do with platform holder policies, each specific platform version of the game will only be valid on that platform, so only current Founders will get copies for all supported platforms if they wish.
The Steam coming soon page is live, go check it out!

It's been a long journey, but we are getting so close to finishing the pure development phase of Gunscape. With this change we will have more time to respond to the players needs and wants for additonal features and content of the game. To this end we have created a public Trello board that we can use to introduce more transparency to you about what is being worked on.
I will be creating tickets there based on all the feedback we receive here on the forums and give you some indication of how they are being prioritised. Be assured that we also have our main private board that has most of the core development we will continue to do on the game. Sometimes I will put some important tickets on the public board to give you a rough roadmap. If you think I've missed a suggestion or bug report of yours just bump it on the forum and I'll either respond as to why we won't do it or I'll push it to the Gunscape Community board.
Also if you sign up an account with Trello you will be able to vote on any of the tickets. By voting you will show us which tickets you think are most important and then we'll be able to decide the priorities using your input. I hope you find this a helpful community tool!
