It's been a little while since we've posted an update for you all. Hopefully all of you will think it was worth it!
We have been hard at work preparing the Movement Build - and we are excited to announce that Patrons who have supported us with $40 or more lifetime will get to play starting this Saturday!
The build is scheduled to run from Saturday through Monday (10/24 at 3:00pm EST - 10/26 at 3:00pm EST). We are beyond excited to finally get the first taste of Samurai Zero into your hands. We love the state Samurai Zero is in at the moment, but we are also looking forward to your feedback so we can make Samurai Zero the best it can be.
So, for those who have backed that $40 or more in the lifetime of their pledges:
If you are interested in testing this movement build, please join our Discord if you have not already. Keys will be distributed Friday night on there as well. The Discord will serve as a main hub for updates and conversation about the build. We've added a number of you already to the #play-tester channel, but we want to make sure all of our testers who are interested are in there. When you join, please send Eric (0neguy) a DM and let him know you are from Patreon. There is an invite link in your Patreon benefits page.
For the remaining Patrons that have not backed $40 or more in the lifetime of their pledges, no worries - all Patrons will get access in a second weekend play-session sometime in November. That November build will likely include some feedback integrated in from the first play-session.
AND before you know it, our public combat build will be out and you will get a taste of the combat loop for Samurai Zero. Like we mentioned before, we are very excited for this build and can't wait to get everyone's feedback. A huge thank you to every single one of our Patrons, whether you've joined us recently or have been supporting for a while, it means the world to us.
If you have any questions or concerns let us know on here, via Twitter, or message us on Discord and we'll help you out!
