We soft-launched our Alpha Demo at the beginning of June and we’ve had plenty of time to gather input. Before the Steam Next Festival started we collaborated with G.round and were able to get some very valuable insight from testers, which we quickly implemented in preparation for the public Alpha Demo release.
One of the biggest gripes that players had was a lack of proper onboarding, which we quickly added right before the Steam Next Fest. In regards to players, we peaked at almost 500 daily active users, and we peaked with 100 concurrent players. When it comes to wishlists, we had a +1817% increase compared to prior to the event!
INDIE ZONE NRW / NERDSTAR LATE NIGHT
We were lucky enough to get showcased on a Twitch live stream from the German channel Nerdstar, which garnered 193k views
during the Steam Next Fest! They were kind enough to put together a little trailer snippet for the German-speaking audience to give them an overview of the project. They also played the Alpha Demo for about half an hour. Our participation, and having the game showcased on the show was made possible by Medien Netzwerk NRW as part of the Indie Zone program. Watch the whole clip here.
