What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Steam Early Access is an excellent opportunity for us to begin the next stage of development for Tower Unite.

There are still a lot of features we plan to implement, and releasing on Early Access will allow us to exceed the expectations of our fans and our community.

We want to ensure our community is part of our development throughout the process. Our game is unique due to it's diverse, varying gameplay. We want to expand the game based on feedback in ways that we could never imagine on our own.

Early Access allows us to realize our dream game. We want to create the best possible experience for a wide audience, and we can't do that alone. We will use Early Access to address concerns, gather additional data from gameplay experiences, and balance the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to leave Early Access in 2018.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We plan to ship with more Game Worlds, all the various plaza activities, a fully functional arcade, additional player avatar customization, ocean exploration, more advanced condo customization tools, Workshop support, and the features we promised our backers. We also want to ship the game on Mac OS X and Linux.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will not change during early access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Since it's inception, Tower Unite has been all about the players.
By listening to our community, we have been able to build a game that has broad appeal
across multiple genres.
We are constantly welcoming new people into our diverse community to contribute ideas to the game.
If we find ideas that our players will enjoy, we start developing those concepts into new features for Tower Unite.

Our game has always depended on it's fans, they crowdfunded us to bring this to life.
In return, we will be constantly updating the game with new features, and bug fixes.

We also have live streams and weekly developer logs with production updates from the developers.

March 21

Update 0.4.2.0



New Items
15 new items have been added! These items are: Soda Machine, Vending Machine, Canvas Sign, Street Light, Cash Register, Popcorn Bucket, Small Walnut Table, Massive Office Table, Buffet Table, Serving Table, Fancy Chair, Fancy Sofa, Classic Wood Glass Table, Small Coffee Table, and the Plastic Bubble Chair.

Most of these new items are colorable or have canvas support.

Updated Scaler Tool (and others)
The recently released scale tool was updated and now has the ability to manually set the scale of items. Now, if you want to set the scale of items to 4, or .15 because you like those numbers, you totally can! This addition also lets you avoid having to click several times to make objects really large.

Scaling items now scale their sound effects! This of course works with instruments, so you can make tiny toy piano music or really bassy drums. With instruments, we've added a toggle to this feature.

Copycat tool now works with condo surfaces! This was a heavily requested feature. With this tool improvement, you can repaint your condo walls with a lot more ease.

And lastly, picking up physics items will no longer resize them. So you can resize basketballs and throw them around with the scale you've applied!

Media Player Thumbnails
We've added thumbnails to media players when the media player is turned off. This small addition will let players know there is something being played on the media player before they turn it on.

Pause Menu Shortcuts
In this update we've added useful shortcuts to return to your Condo and Tower Express to the pause menu.


Changes
  • Added new items: Soda Machine (with canvas), Vending Machine, Canvas Sign, Street Light, Cash Register, Popcorn Bucket, Small Walnut Table, Massive Office Table, Buffet Table, Serving Table, Small Coffee Table, Classic Wood Glass Table, Fancy Chair, Fancy Sofa, and Plastic Bubble Chair
  • Added "Tower Express" and "Open Your Condo" buttons to the pause menu
  • Added video thumbnail support to media players when the media player is turned off. This will let players get an idea of what is on the media player before turning it on
  • Added the ability to directly set the scale you want to resize items to with the quick scaler settings
  • Copycat tool now works with Condo wall surfaces
  • Added a refresh button on the Inventory tab in preparation for Tower Express
  • Certain items now scale their sound pitch based on their world scale. Items such as: Catsacks, doors, fireworks, instruments, lamps, physics items (basketball, etc.), plushies, basketball hoop/football net, and trampoline
  • You can now recolor the Gem item
  • Picking up physics objects no longer resets their scale. You can now make tiny basketballs and throw them around!

Introducing Tower Express

We’re pleased to announce the public alpha of Tower Express, the online marketplace for Tower Unite.

You can visit Tower Express by going here.

For those who haven’t heard, Tower Express allows for the purchase of up to 1,000 items at a time, without going to the Plaza. In addition, Tower Express allows for the sale of multiple items at a time, gone are the days of spending hours selling all 50,000 of your potatoes.

All purchases are made using in-game units.

During this alpha phase, the overall design of the website are subject to change. We’re aware of issues with the UI not scaling correctly on smaller screens, and these issues will be addressed during this alpha period. For more information, there’s a FAQ provided on the website.

Please let us know of any issues you find, by posting them on our forums. Hope you enjoy it!
