Warm greetings to the Steel Hunters community! We hope that the winter months were generous enough to give you some snow and create a festive atmosphere. The latter was also on our agenda, as we released Update 0.30 just in time for some holiday fun. The primary focus of our team was centered on the previous update, where we conducted a critical test of the new region and welcomed a surge of players eager to embrace the role of Hunters. Consequently, v0.30 was less about introducing new features

Olá Hunters! Every time I write the introductory words for one of our update articles, it feels like I'm a bard sitting in a cozy armchair beside a fireplace, surrounded by eager listeners ready for another glorious story. But let's not get lost in daydreams, as it's time to dive into business! 😄 Version 0.29 and its three playtest sessions, including the one that welcomed new players from Latin America, have now wrapped up.

The Forge: Balance
"Lagom”, the epitome of Swedish simplicity. When things embody Lagom, they are not perfect but rather perfectly balanced—just right. Picture a tea that isn't too hot or too cold on a rainy day—Lagom! Imagine a color that effortlessly complements the occasion—Lagom! Now, let's set aside our admiration for Swedish culture and apply the concept of 'Lagom' directly to the realm of video games. Because Balance is a sensitive field, striving for improvement doesn't necessarily bring us closer to

It's Retrospective time! We'll go through everything that happened during the September-October release together: the good, the bad and the scary! Let me, your humble guide MirAI, show you the way to the results! I'll preface the main part with some organizational stuff: as we mentioned in the Update Recap, the cadence of the playtest sessions has shifted and we settled on three biweekly playtest sessions plus one Steel Lab run for now.

The Forge : Video creation
Enter the World of Movies! A dazzling industry with action, complex storylines, state-of-the-art visual effects, feeding an entertainment-hungry fanbase. Cinema started in 1895 – in Paris and Berlin. People were blown away by the most simple movement on a big screen back then. Equally impressive for people: “Spacewar!” in 1962, maybe the first video game ever. But video games didn’t receive their own trailers until “Zaxxon” was launched in 1982. And why would they? Back then video games and
