it’s never been easier to get a game going with strangers


This is great, but how about making it easier to get a game going with your friends?

That's been the difficult part.

We're still working on enhancing private games. It's currently possible to play with friends using FB, Steam accounts and Google accounts. We're still working on Game Center (it can be used to log in, but friend lists are not currently uploaded to the server - this last part we still need to fix).

We're also working on RotA content, new techs from the expansion will be the first thing we add.

Thank you!

I'm very glad to hear that (and I know others are as well).

Now I'd like to see some more Neuroshima Hex updates. How about Uranopolis, Mephisto, and maybe Death Breath? How about fixing it so my online games don't crash when I play dancer? How about the larger map or 2v2 variant? How about a revamped multiplayer in general?

key has always been that your opponents??? turns are displayed/recapped utilizing the same interface


Wait, what?

I bought the game on release, but my friends and I quickly stopped playing, as there was no access to a opponents turns log. So whenever your turn came back, you needed to analyze the board anew to figure out what changed, which was a pain. When did that change?

This feature was there all the time (that is from the moment the new version was released). Opponents' moves are replayed for you once you get back to an online game.

That was the update that got everybody excited...until we found we couldn't invite our GC friends.

It was a much-needed change.

No turn notifications, at least not on the steam version. Email, text, whatever. Then I might play.

great news! fingers crossed that BDC can fix the GC friendslists.

in case this is not possible, how about introducing passwords for creating private games?
it's a simple but effective way to ensure private games, no matter what platform or social network.

and as long as the nasty iOS10 GC problem is not solved (that we can't add new players to our GC friendslists), an universal solution would be welcome even more.
