8-Bit Invaders Game Update #12 - 04/28/17 @ 14:00 (PST)

Alright! Time for a few balance adjustments per your feedback, and some desperately needed tweaks to one of our translated languages.

First - all those balance changes. We have been watching a LOT of games, and listening to your feedback and we are really close to an even win ratio across all factions. Still, we want to keep an eye on it and ensure that nothing in the game is under or over-powered. The changes we're making today should help keep everything in check.

Second, one of you pointed out that our Turkish language support was REALLY off - and it turns out that many of the lines were adjusted by one spot. This is fixed now, so please take another look and let us know if you find something wrong (with any of the languages..)

We thank you for your continued support! Have a great weekend!

Hi 8-Bit Players!

Today's update is just a quick maintenance release in relation to our 6 new languages (Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Turkish, Arabic, and Romanian.) These languages are now live and we are doing some testing with our localization teams to fix any visible issues. While the game is fully playable in these languages you should consider this BETA until our testing is complete.

Thanks for your support and have a great weekend!
