Informational Post

So this post today will have nothing to do with patches, just some questions to ask you guys.

First of all I want to thank you all for sticking with me through the whole Development process, and all the comments you guys leave me really mean a lot. And I think it's time we came to a decision.

I have really been shooting farther than I can throw, I am spending too much time on graphics to create good gameplay mechanics. So, here is my idea.

The Re-Creation of Alone World 2.
I know, i know, the first thing that comes to mind is "FUCK NO!" or "WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU DO THAT?" but hear me out first before raging in the comments :) .

Why?
Because I believe I focused too much on the graphical side of things, I have decided that things should become more Low-Poly. Allowing me to spend less time on models and such and more time on gameplay.

Let me show you guys the benefits of restarting,

The benefits of restarting:
1) Though I will be starting over, spending less time on Graphics means that I will be able to get more content created, which means more patches, and I might even be able to get the Daily Patches going again!

2) I will be able to spend more time on Gameplay mechanics, which is the main area of all games, therefore allowing for faster beta tests.

3) I was so exited for alone world 2, that I never planned things out, and so with me starting over I will be able to spend more time on the back-story of the game.

So now that I have given you guys some points on why I think it would be a good idea to start over with low-poly graphics, it's up to you guys to vote:

Feel free to leave a comment, and I'll see you guys in the next post!

[Feedback]

"When can we beta test the game"? - Everyone
-I am not sure as with the new decisions, however if the game is turned to low-poly, development will be speed up and I might be able to get a Beta Test out to you guys sooner.

"You should work with Nelson on Unturned 2" - Georgey
-Nelson prefers to work alone with his Projects, besides I have Alone World :D
