What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to improve Summer Islands with every step and how can you do that better than working with the community. That's why we want to use the Early Access option for Summer Islands.

With every new update for Summer Islands, there are good and not so good implementations. Our goal is to achieve the best gaming experience of Summer Islands for the players and that can be best done with the players.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our goal is to finish the Early Access for Summer Islands in 2019. There are many features that we want to add to the game and that requires a lot of updates and bug fixes. Therefore, each feature takes time to implement and test.”

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

“In the end, Summer Islands should have more buildings, weather conditions, different ships and planes and effects in the menus, buildings, and guarantee a greater gaming experience.

Also complete new features are planned, such as Counselors who can be hired for better information about the map, your enemies or the weather. The AI ​​is more personal and will confront you.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Summer Islands is in a stable version with some bugs.
At present, the holiday paradise can be built on buildings in each section, e.g. Airplanes, ships, cars during transport. The AI ​​is in a basic version and builds its own paradise, but still without interaction.”

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

“During early access, we would like to work with the community. For this reason, the price will be lower in the first phase of early access. We hope that this is a good incentive for the player to give us feedback.”

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

“We think that any feedback on Summer Islands is justified. So we work with every feedback we receive to improve the strength of Summer Islands, get rid of bugs and create the best atmosphere in Summer Islands for the player.”

1.Update march 2018, v0.0.2

Hello together,

in the first weeks in march we worked on some new functions like demolition or sabotage. These functions are really important. know...if have to much money you can blow you enemy away. In Summer Islands sabotage is pretty expansive.

For the Beginning we added a bomb, sharks and bacterial for the hotels. With these you can  influence the popularity of the buildings. If it worked your enemy will earn much less money. Sabotage is really something you should only do if you have a lot money and need the space or the revenge. Since we have added these function we can add in the future more creative sabotage functions. You need more possibilities with your revenge.

Next to the sabotage functions/menu we added or renewed the demolition function with some effects. Just for now to have some effects. We will probably rebuild them too in the future. 

Also to have a better overview about the cost of the demolition, sabotage or if you do terraforming you get a small sign next to the mouse with the costs on it. It is a pretty small feature but it will bring more transparency and a better traceability for you. 

In the last post we wrote about new features/designs for the nature. We will do that now :)

Update Log:
- CLIENT/SERVER demolition function
- CLIENT/SERVER sabotage function
- CLIENT sabotage menu/effects
- CLIENT cost preview signs
- small javascript efficency corrections

Update february 2018, v0.0.1

Hello together,

These past few weeks in the end of february have been so hard. Not with Summer Islands but rather with the work next to Summer Islands. Espcecially with the end of the Masterthesis. But now it's over and we can focus on new features for Summer Islands!!!

In the last weeks we focused a lot on improving the AI. Summer Islands isn't only focusing on your economy and the weather conditions. The AI must challenge you and you should consider carefully to build something next to the AI or when you attack the reputation of them. We wanna build a realistic AI.
So in the first steps the AI will analyse a small part of the map and will create a little base, like you would do. For these few functions there is already a lot going on on the AI. To be a realistic AI, first they must build a few buildings, rethink the area and so on.

On the client side we implemented a zoom function. With you mousewheel you can zoom in and zoom out to the point where you coursor is. Now you have the possibility to watch all the small movements, for example from the cyclist.

Here a preview:

In the next weeks we try to implement some new features for the nature. It will probably change the complete look of the nature.

Update Log
  • AI Area Analysation
  • AI small Base building
  • AI building connection streets
  • AI terraforming for Buildings
  • CLIENT Zoom in/out with your mousewheel
