G’day all, while vPopulus is still some way away from release we have some information for you about updates from our last (less than informative) update.
To get this out of the way, we have a timeline for the release now however we will not be releasing this publically and not before we release a testing date, a date we hope to announce soon.
Onto more substantive news, we are happy to announce the addition of two news countries (all countries until launch are conditional). So please welcome Bulgaria and France as the games newest nations, alongside Serbia, Australia, USA, Brazil and Poland.
As we look to increase and finalise our starting nations, it is important to gauge how many people are interested in joining a country to get a rough estimation of current numbers. To do this I will ask every person reading this article to spend 30 seconds answering this: https://goo.gl/forms/duhtDMy6H2T3iavg1 which will help us going forward in formalising nations.
Also if you would like to start your own community not listed on discord server feel free to send Lordsbrin or Callumh123 a message to start your own!
We also have some staff news. We have added a new moderator to our ranks, Lupus Nocte. He will be joining us as we begin our push to launch and we are certain will be a valued and effective member of our team. Please make him feel welcome. If you have any ideas or comments in the implementation of missions and tutorials please let Lupus Nocte know!
We are always looking for people to join our vPopulus team and to get the game off the ground extra hands on deck helps! So if you have any experience in development for both front and backend please contact Callumh123.
We also have some screenshots we are excited to show you created by our front end maestro Sido:
Note: Displayed countries aren’t the final ones
As the game is still in development more polished screenshots will leak out once features are done internally and our neighbourhood wizard Sido can polish them up!
We’d also like to announce that along with all the updates we’re doing on the game, we’re also developing a smartphone APP, at this very moment it allows the most basic functionalities such as work, train, shouts. We want to gradually expand the app to allow you play vPopulus to the fullest. Our app is open source and is being coded in Ionic, if you have any experience with it, you can help us out and commit changes! Check it out - https://gitlab.com/vPopStudio/vpopulus-mobile-app
We will begin periodically releasing non update screenshots through our social media which can be found here:
We will have more for you in our next update.
