Update 15 - Daily Challenges Rebalance, OSX Release

Hey hunters,

It’s good to work on the game again :) I just released my new game Star Vikings and, after a week off, I’m back to Zero updates!

This will be a small but important update, as I’m trying to find the right balance for the Daily runs. They’ve been hugely successful: after Update 14 we were back on over 1,000 daily players, and we’ve had an average of 150 participants on each Daily run.

But I feel they are taking too long, though - an average of 25 minutes, with high-scoring runs clocking over an hour. The sweet spot in my opinion is 10 minutes average with a long run being about 30 minutes. With this new goal in mind, I’ve made a few adjustments to the Dailies - they should get harder and more interesting faster.

Let me know how it went!

And no, I haven’t forgotten about the Community Pack :) Hang on tight, it’s coming! I don’t know how often I’ll get to work on Zero updates, because things have been hard financially for me this year - Star Vikings has sold almost nothing, and I’m struggling to keep myself in business for the next year. All my bets are on the new “Relic Hunters Legend” - let’s hope I can make a living off of that one!
