Design Comments and Appreciation

We had to go into production before working all of the bugs out of game play. The most significant problem still to be solved is balancing the power between Collectors and Protectors. As it stands, opening game play is fun but too many collectors are wiped out before any significant information is secured as you get to mid-game. I have some ideas for adjustment which I'd like to try just to get a real sense of completion for the game.

I want to say thanks to all my teammates for the hard work of creation, production, and play testing. I also want to thank all the event directors and everyone who joined us for SU game jam 2011. Please invite me again next year.
