One part of development we have yet to talk about in much detail is where we want to take the game. We want to show our players what our plans are in the short and the longer term, and also what we plan to implement into the game further into the future. The roadmap is intended to give the community a flavour of what is to come in the coming weeks and months. It is not a complete to-do list, because that would be huge!
Our short-term focus in is still on bugfixing and improving the player experience. This means that over the next few weeks we will be releasing weekly updates to the game focusing on quality-of-life improvements that will tidy up some of the existing elements and features.
In the intermediate future we will begin working on new features and content. These will take slightly longer to implement, test and deploy, as they will be of greater complexity. Updates on these will roll out every 2 weeks to allow us more time to work on the new features.
After that comes long term, which is what we want to add to the game in the future. There are no set timescales for these features, but they are things we would love to see in the game so we are investigating the work required.
Below is a selection of improvements we are currently working on. We are a small yet flexible team, so some of these issues may switch around depending on what is most important at the time.
