Spacebase DF-9 Alpha 4: “The Terrible Secrets of Space”, has been released! See the patch notes for a detailed list of changes.
This video comes on the eve of Amnesia Fortnight 2014, a game jam-like event we do here at Double Fine in which you, our players, vote on which prototypes we make and then watch us livestream the process of making them. Jeremy, Matt, and myself are all on different teams for the two weeks, but rest assured once the amnesia clears we’ll be back to work on Spacebase!
Alpha 4’s marquee feature is the new Research system, which allows you to build Research Lab zones where Scientists can research new things to build and improve your base with. There’s also some cool visual enhancements, work on citizen personalities, and the usual huge raft of bug fixes and minor improvements.
(Apologies for the video being a few days late, we ran into some technical difficulties getting it recorded on Friday!)
