I’m very pleased to be able to announce that Baseborn (formerly “codename Ifrit”) is finally out of beta and has hit its first release. Thanks to all of you who tested the game back in January, we were able to squash a ton of bugs and add some new features, including a complete overhaul of the AI, a remastered soundtrack, new physics and effects for weapons, and the ability to restart the game at any time.
Perhaps the most important change is that it’s no longer necessary to download a specific version of the game if you’re a Mac or Linux user; thanks to the most recent version of FLAKit we can bundle the whole game into a single file and run it on any computer through a web page. This should also allow the game to run on computers that aren’t supported by Adobe’s flash projector, like PowerPC Macs.
If you missed it, we ran a series of posts during the last week that went into detail on various aspects of Baseborn’s development process. You can find them here:
