Arcen Games announces
several tidbits about A Valley Without Wind
, their upcoming procedurally generated side-scroller. They say they have entered the game into IGF 2012
and they will be attending next week's MineCon
. They also write about their beta, and how it can get you a discount: "The full version of A Valley Without Wind is available for pre-order at 50% off the launch price
during early beta, with customers gaining instant access to the latest available build and all subsequent releases. An updated demo
--complete with the aforementioned intro mission--is out now for download, and a huge batch of screenshots
showing off what's new have been released as well." Finally, they offer details on a new intro mission they've added as a result of beta testing, saying: "The new addition should allow players to be more comfortable navigating around the world in the side view, become familiar with how buildings, surface areas, and undergrounds all work, and have the confidence to head out onto the world map on their own."
