Dodos, Buildings, and the road to Alpha

Daniel suggested that I should pick out some of the juicier fixes and additions from the change log of our latest internal test build¬†and talk about them; it’s also probably instructive to show some of the feedback. Our internal test build of Clockwork Empires is now on Revision 18. We usually¬†do builds about once a week, but this week we had to do an Old-Timey Dredmor-Style Hotfix for Revision 18 because it introduced a bug where people kept spastically trying to pick up and put down shovels, and so now we are at Revision 18A. Some edited highlights:

  • The dodo is back in again. Yes! It now eats all your crops, but it doesn’t get stuck in a berry bush; additionally, hunting work crews will pick up any weapon that is suitable for them and will then go off and create a hideous, bloody dodo flesh massacre. This leads to enormous piles of dodo corpses lying around, including being found in houses and on the steps of upper class houses. Currently, you cannot do anything with a dodo corpse. (You now receive two Dodo Drumsticks if you butcher the corpse -David)
