We’re hoping you already know what time it is–community update time! We’ve got lots to discuss, but before we get to our post, we’d like to let you guys know that it’s Holy Week, so we’ll be taking a quick break. Apologies if you send us something and we don’t get back to you right away. Never fear; we’ll be back and hard at work next week!
WHAT WE’RE DOING
Great news for y’all: Our game designer and devs have been working on improving the farming UX and overall UX of Wild Season! These are changes that haven’t been implemented yet, but that we are currently testing out, with good results so far! So expect these and many more in the near future:
- Faster farming tool animations
- Sickled Weeds disappear instead of appearing in player’s hands
- New layout of tillable land on player farm
- Primary and secondary action key functionality for mouse
- NPC walk movements are slower
- Simplified current Dialogue tool for performance purposes
If you guys have any comments about our UX / UI, check out the next section below!
Last week, we sent a survey out to all our Kickstarter backers, so we can get a better idea of what people like about the game and what they’d like to see more of. The answers we’ve been getting have been crazy helpful to us, and we’re taking them very seriously as we continue to make improvements to Wild Season and our game community!
A huge thanks with a side of milk and cookies to everyone who answered! And if you’re a backer and haven’t heard about this survey yet, check out our backer-exclusive March 18, 2016 Update on Kickstarter for the link.
What about non-backers, you say? No worries! If you’ve played Wild Season for more than 2 hours and you want to let us know your honest impressions of the game, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll send you the survey link so we can hear from you.

We’re still looking for Dev Build Testers for Wild Season, especially for the platforms Windows 7, Windows 8, Mac, and Linux; so if YOU want to beta test Wild Season and get first look at new adjustments and events in the game, email Mads via email@example.com!
