Space Turkey 2017 – Astrobase Command Thankful Update

Posted on November 24, 2017 by Max Shields

Even Astrobasers Need Some Shore Leave For A Bite Of Space Turkey.

We had much to be thankful for this Space Turkey Day. We are deeply thankful to our Kickstarter backers for believing in us when we turned to you for your support. You helped us get to the closed alpha. We are thankful to those of you that have joined us since our appearance on Itch. We are thankful for our Patreon backers. We are also profoundly grateful for our families and their continued encouragement as we forge ahead on this grand adventure.

To our American friends: enjoy this time with friends and family. To the rest of the world, we’re beaming turkey thoughts to you today!

ABC:/>Requesting Your Input

Now that the Astrobase Command Closed Alpha has cooked a bit in the cosmic rays of ongoing development, the time has come to start refreshing our old marketing media with shiny new trailers and images reflecting the progress!

Make your voice heard by helping us choose the video that goes on our website and store page!
(For example: at the top of this page!)

This is a key moment in selecting the tone and voice for the public face of the game. Below there are several versions of the same video, each with different music and fonts.

So we’re asking the players: Which music and font style do you like (look and feel) for the new Astrobase Command Alpha Trailer? Your choice will determine the future!

Developer Updates!

Hey all,

This week was spent in lower gear, catching up with family coming in from all parts of the space-time continuum. I did manage to get various bits and pieces of work done in the gap between gatherings because the Great Space Turkey needs constant nurturing.

Since we try our best to keep an eye on the long term game plan, I also used the opportunity to finish up some work on <CLASSIFIED> that will come in handy when we start <CLASSIFIED> for the <CLASSIFIED>.

Hey Space-Friends!

I took a breather this week for mental health and housekeeping: spending time with my son, knocking out some overdue admin and getting a bunch of tax obligations sorted. Running an indie studio can be such a chaotic and stressful thing that taking the time relax, re-assess and appreciate the benefits is incredibly important!

Hi Everybody!

Even though thanksgiving isn’t a Swedish holiday in any way I too have put some extra time to focusing on my family this week. It’s important to take a break and get better perspective of what’s going on every now and then.

Hey guys!

Since the Wednesday update was about balance, I logged a lot of hours in Astrobase Command both before and afterwards. This also allowed me to generate some great marketing materials. Oh, and we now have a new background for our twitter page!
