What We Are Cooking - Spoilers Ahead!
If you haven't heard, we are making a lot of changes to Stellar Stars, and it's all in the name of creating a better gameplay experience for you.
As there will be spoilers, if you prefer to be surprised when you download the next and upcoming patch (which will be v0.130 Alpha), stop reading right away. Still here? Alright let's start!
This is the 1st big change that you will notice when the game loads - a new login screen! What does this mean for you? You will essentially need to register an account to play the game.
While we are fully aware that this comes as an additional barrier to the game, let's think about it from another perspective. Registering an account creates a higher level of commitment and game progress that you can bring with you anywhere you go. You just need a desktop computer with Stellar Stars in it.
And after you have logged in, this is what you will most likely see.
If you look at the above screenshot, you might notice that it is rather easy to scan through your account stats on the top edge of the screen. Starting from the left, you have your icon that presents your current league, your user name, number of trophies, star level (of your account), number of stars collected and lastly number of matches you have both won and lost.
However, the animating arrow should capture your attention with ease.
This is where you will be able to choose from the 3 game modes - namely story, local versus and online multiplayer matches.
We are also in the middle of adding full controller support for Stellar Stars. This means that you will be able to play the game without even touching your keyboard or mouse. Big Picture on Steam anyone?
And we have also created a virtual keyboard to empower your Xbox One controller and you in Stellar Stars!
