We just released another update for Dealer’s Life following player feedback and some new ideas.
First of all, Dealer’s Life has now a public roadmap!
We decided to create this board in order to keep Dealer’s Life players updated on our tasks and to provide a single entry point for bug reports and feature requests. There is a list for feature request with a specific form to sumbit, a list for bug report with another form, a list for short, mid and long term tasks to keep track of what we are going to do next and last, but not least, there are lists for every release with the current status update.
The board is public and everyone can join, comment and even vote on their favourite or most important task, so… what are you waiting for? Join and let us hear your voice!
You can find the link for the public roadmap also in another addition to our game: our new welcome screen!
We thought that it’s important to let Dealer’s Life players know that the game is still in development and that we have a lot of ideas and new content that will be implemented, along with links to be able to find what’s is in our plans (the roadmap but also our social pages). In our opinion this new welcome screen is the right place to tell them those things!
Speaking of right places, in this update we also added new tutorial tips in order to provide hints during important steps of the game.
They are shown only one time in each game session and in each specific zone and they can be disabled in the options menu. We really felt this was necessary to help players at their first experience with the game and we think that now the experience is much smoother.
And, again, right places! We now have a brand new “X to close” button on all windows and popups in our game.
Speaking about balance changes, we did a minor change to help avoid very unlucky situations where the most valuable item, assigned to an employee, was lost due to an event. With this release the items assigned to an employee can not be targeted by events!
And then there are the usual minor graphic enhancements and bug fixing, although I must remind you that the last release (0.50) was one of our biggest achievements in terms of game optimization: 90% less of used RAM for audio sources and 66% less for textures!
So, that’s all about Dealer’s Life latest update! Don’t forget to try the game and tell us what you think!
