Devlog #17 - Juice in Release 23

Still unsure if I should keep going with this. It is kind of fun but really limited. I think the next step is to add a butt-tonne of content and a questing system. I can see how that will work but it's a lot of work to do and I don't want to sink any more time if it's just not fun.

I'd appreciate some more feedback on whether some of the concerns you had on how fun it is to move the Cloudship around and shoot etc. Is it still a pain in the arse?

Download the release here.

Thanks again, chaps!

I've been watching these through rather than going out INTO THE SUN LIKE. He does go on a bit but it's lively and he uses the app with a smoothness that I find compelling. Here's part 3 of the series I linked above:

Far: Lone Sails

A charming little game about piloting this odd land ship across a post apocalyptic landscape. At first you have to fuel it to keep it going by running around inside pushing buttons to run the generator and releasing steam loading new fuel and then stopping to grab more fuel off the ground as you roll along. Then you get sails that allow you to use wind power and as you progress more and different upgrades.

The landscape of this odd post apocalyptic world rolls past in the background as you go and periodically you have to get out to overcome some obstacle on your path.
