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.”

Update from the 4.week in april 2018 [v0.0.6]

Hello together,

this time we worked on two different things.

The first one is more a correction from the tornado and the clouds. In the past we hadn't a good animation of the tornado, clouds and dark clouds. So, we worked on our animation to get it more realistic and smooth. It took us a few days for just a small result. But it had to be done.

On the other days we saw a trailer analysis about our Summer Islands trailer from the Schematics Team here: https://youtu.be/F_206kBHI-Q
It was great to watch and we got some nice feedback. Also some inspiration but we're not sure about the sharks with lasers.
There we saw the need for the GUI scaling. We already had it on the to-do list. But it was really important to integrate it now. If some people want to see some features they must see what it is and get the impression about it. So we added a new option where you can set the GUI scale from 1.0 to 1.7. That is really the maximum for the option window.



With these big buttons it is really nice to play, also with touchscreen. Maybe we can add a touchscreen mode or a pen mode or something like that. Also It would be nice to create a Smartphone version or a Console version.
But for now, we’re working hard to get a stable alpha version. 

Update Log:
- CLIENT: Tornado, clouds animation correction
- CLIENT: added GUI Scale option
- CLIENT: PRELOADJS eingefügt
- CLIENT: Loading animation
- CLIENT/SERVER: Small javascript efficency corrections

Update from the 3.week in april 2018 [v0.0.5]

Hello together,

this is a small update about the 3.week in april only. Because what we did is worth an update :)

Last week we worked hard on the loadingsystem of Summer Islands. Because createJS provides also the great PreloadJS JavaScript library. So for this mechanic we had to change a lot of things for example with the spriteSheets to some extra JSONs and so on. Especially with sounds in the future we have now the architecture to load all the files in the beginning to have everything in the cache.  We know, we should have done this month ago. Now i would say every Gamedeveloper needs to do this right away. 

So for this loading time in the beginning we integrated a small preview movable animation. We can change this easily in the future if we create something better.

Additionally we use this black loading screen also if you start a match. But unless you play a bigger map the game needs only a few seconds to  initialize. 
When everything is loaded an animation of the main menu starts. We do not really want to specify it. It's just a simple animation. But it makes a good atmosphere and you like to play a match. :)

And now enjoy the start of the game:

In the next weeks we're working hard for a stable version. But probably we need a few more weeks for that especially with the fine tuning. :)
