SoulCraft 0.6.1 released - awesome start for SoulCraft for all Android

by Karsten Wysk 29. March 2012 18:28

We were pretty happy with the downloads of SoulCraft before the "All Android release SoulCraft 0.6" but yesterday was really amazing for all of us here at the SoulCraft team. As you can see on the chart below - SoulCraft really took off - thank you very much for all the interest to help us in this Open Beta!

With lots of beta testers naturally you found more bugs and thats why we just released a quick release with SoulCraft 0.6.1 fixing the following issues (no new content download necessary):

  • increase speed of character Angel (now always 100% speed, in 0.6 angel was at 85% speed slowly rising up to character level 10 ..but you did not like it)
  • Default control scheme is now fixed, you can change it to dynamic controls in the settings
  • Decrease controller size by 20%
  • Buying Gold on mobile phones actually works now
  • If our server is down, you can still play the game even if you dont have an account yet

Have fun and keep the bugs coming - thank you!!!

After having reached over 100.000 downloads only on tegra powered devices, we are happy to announce that SoulCraft is now available for all Android devices.

Adding to that we also added lots of new stuff into this new version - this is a major update as you can see on our roadmap:

  • Changed first 15 minutes (different starting location, new spells)
  • Dynamic World Map (scrollable)

  • Add China as Gold location (only for Gold players who have bought Gold at least once)
  • Easier/better controls (with easier beginner spells, autoaim for easier spells, )
  • lots of other bugs & smaller improvements

We hope you like the new version and please do not hesitate to continue to give us feedback! Thank you!

Both the Tegra powered and non-Tegra version of the game have just been shown on the Google Android booth at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona 2012. “We have been very proud to be selected by Google to show off our game at the official Android booth based on the quality of the game – even though we are still in beta”, says Boje Holtz, Producer of SoulCraft. “We also hope that players will agree that the new location China is the best location so far”.

Players are invited to take part in the open beta to continuously tweak and improve the game. The best starting point for this is http://soulcraftgame.com/feedback.html and please also check out our roadmap: http://SoulCraftGame.com/roadmap.html

New "Gold Location" Great Wall of China explained

by Karsten Wysk 22. March 2012 12:06

As you can see on our roadmap the latest update of SoulCraft will also feature a new location: The Great Wall of China. You may have noticed that this is a "Gold location" and may ask yourself: WTF is a Gold location? :)
We mean "Gold location" in 2 ways: First China is currently the most beautiful location in the game. We tried a slightly different art style and we really like it ..and hope you agree. So the first way to see it is: Gold locations have "gold standard" quality :)
The second way to explain what Gold locations are is this: As you know SoulCraft is a free2play game: You can play the game for free and only if you want to you can spend some real money to improve the gaming experience. To be honest: currently lots of people are playing the game and enjoying it but not enough people are spending real money yet. Harsh reality is that we need at least enough money to pay the team working on the game and we are not there yet ... and thats why we are experimenting with these Gold locations to improve monetization of the game. We simply hope that more people will buy Gold at least once to be able to play the new awesome China location.

So the rule for the Gold locations is: Buy Gold at least once and you become a "Gold member" for life. This allows you to play all "Gold content" including the new China location (and more Gold content coming up). It does not matter if you spent all your gold - you will still be able to access "Gold content" once you have become a "Gold member".

Of course this does not mean that all new cool stuff will be "Gold content". We will of course also add lots of new stuff to the "normal" game as well!

Thanks for your feedback and have fun playing the game!

And here is our official press release for the MWC:

Action-RPG SoulCraft from MobileBits will be showcased on the Android Stand at Mobile World Congress, first game to show off Android™ Beam for instant multiplayer matching.

•    The Android™ Stand at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona will feature the Action-RPG SoulCraft from MobileBits which is currently in open beta

•    MobileBits will show off a version running on both Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Tegra 3 device Asus Transformer Prime
•    SoulCraft will be available as a free download on Galaxy Nexus devices at the beginning of the MWC in the Android Market™.
•    It is already available and especially optimized for NVIDIA Tegra devices since about a month and has been featured by NVIDIA at CES 2011 & 2012 and in the Tegra Zone

MobileBits has a nice surprise for the MWC in Barcelona: they will show off its Action-RPG SoulCraft using Android Beam: players can instantly challenge each other or play coop together with the Android™ Beam as matchmaking.

“Imagine 2 friends waiting for a bus”, says Karsten Wysk, CEO of MobileBits. “using Android Beam they can now instantly play together without having to work themselves through complicated buddy lists or matchmaking systems”.

Players can test this new feature at the Google booth at the Mobile World Congress. MobileBits will release a new version of SoulCraft running on Galaxy Nexus at the start of MWC – however this public version does not feature the multiplayer mode yet. “We know from the feedback we get from the open beta that players really want Multiplayer" says Boje Holtz, Producer of SoulCraft. “Therefore we will release it for everybody very soon – however for the moment it will be an exclusive preview for the MWC audience”.

MobileBits will discuss the progress of the game with its developer diary on http://SoulCraftGame.com/
