Hello all,

Welcome to the devlog for NOVA DRIFT.  But first, a link to the coming soon page and a trailer...

https://pixeljam.itch.io/nova-drift


As the page says: 

"Nova Drift distills the mechanical depth of an action RPG into classic arcade space combat. Your ship rapidly evolves as you defeat enemies, allowing you to shape its abilities and weaponry to your desires in a matter of minutes. Unlike many action-RPGs which can absorb hundreds of hours of time, Nova Drift allows you to take a ship build from inception to execution in a single game session. "

The game has been in development for over 4 years now by one-man dev team Jeffrey Nielson, aka Chimeric.  These posts are by Pixeljam, the publisher, but we're also making the soundtrack for the game, so we are also on the dev team, right?

Anyway, we'd love to hear your thoughts on it so far.  The game *looks* done but it still needs final sound effects, some new bosses, a little more balancing on the weapons & gear side, and of course general polish is just never ending...

We hope you enjoy checking it out, and we'll be posting more here soon as new updates are made.

Yes, you can. We had to update the Windows version only to fix a windows-only bug... :)

Can you email us at pixeljamgames@gmail.com?  We have a new version that we'd like you to test.

I don't think its dependent on Steam, but if you look at the config.xml file you should see Steam='false'.  If it's not false, change it to false...

Cool, thanks.  We did try to make the new episode less frustrating.  The game is meant to be more entertaining than challenging anyway.

Tell us about your experience testing out any new betas here.

Cool, thanks for the answer - can you email me at miles@pixeljam.com?  We might be able to help with Mac / Steam versions.

Just picked this up on recommendation by the VGLookClub.    Are there any plans for a Mac version?  Also do you plan onputting this on Steam?  Might do well there if it finds the right audience.

Thanks for Playing, and don't forget to follow SUSAN. on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Cheap__Golf


Take care,

Thanks!  We added steam keys to Itch.io yesterday, so you should have one now - I think you go to your download page and then scroll down a bit and see "Get Steam Key" - let me know if it doesn't work.

Can you email me at miles@pixeljam.com and explain a bit more about the issue?  Thanks :)

Noted, thanks!

we just need to optimize that shader apparently.  Next week!

cool, good to know

weird, that still looks like the default shader.  You set useLegacyShader to TRUE?

Incredible recursion!

Can you try one thing?

1) Right click on the app, select "show package contents"

2) Navigate to Contents/Resources/assets/data/config.xml

3) Find the second line of actual code:

<display width="1280" height="720" fullscreen="false" legacyShader="false" />

Change legacyShader="false" to legacyShader="true"

(be careful with this file, one typo and game CRASH)

Then save the file, close it, and launch the game again.  Let us know how it goes?

SUSAN. approves of your style

No you are right - windows is the correct speed, mac is slow. What are your mac specs?
