Hello there everyone!
We've been hard at work on Meeple Station the past couple of weeks, and we have some pretty huge news! We've signed up with a Publisher (finally) which will be a huge boost to the game's quality! Expect to know just who it is in the following weeks.
We're making great strides towards multiplayer, overworld map movement, and many other VERY juicy little features, but for now we want to show off some of the meeple available on the station!
I wanted to bring you all a short dev diary about the different types of Meeple you'll be able to find on Meeple Station. Every meeple comes with an inate job they do, be it mining, refining, exploring or building, they have their class and they stick to it no matter what!
Above is the Miner. He'll be your go-to guy for mineral extracion on asteroids. Expect to employ a decent amount of these guys, as they (sadly) are inclined to suit related incidents, as well as oxygen depletion due to airlock malfunctions, etc.
Botanists ensure you'll have enough food to feed your station. A super important job all around! Make sure to stock up on plankton or whatever it is they eat (I don't actually know!)
I'm going to keep what the chemist does under wraps currently. But as you can see they require loads of complex wires and advanced machinery to undertake their task.... for some reason that important area seems to have been built in the most traffic heavy part of the station but whatever.
Refiner Meeple take the raw materials made by the Miners and make them into useable resources for advanced building. Nuff said.
Your engineers build both inside and outside of your base. Also, check out our z levels, yay!
I'll leave it to you to figure out just what went wrong in this picture... yikes.. The hazmat Meeple will clean (or try) toxic spills and fumes around your base. Remember to conduct PROPER maintenence next time!
Janitor meeple clean up mess, while a bit of a lackluster job, they certainly help to keep morale from falling!
That's it for this week friends.There are many more meeple in the game that we haven't touched upon yet! Please let us know in the coments below what types of meeple you'd like to see!
