Developer Update 12.15.2015

Rating: 7 votes, 3.29 average.
Hello Xsyon Citizens!

This is a big week for Xsyon players! Xsyon now does not require a subscription!

This is a big change that I've been considering for a while now. The decision to remove the subscription is based on several factors including:

- A great resistance from players on Steam to a subscription based 'Early Access' game.

- Half of accounts currently logging in have been playing without a subscription.

- Changes in the game industry.

Although I personally still favor the subscription model, it's clearly turning away too many players at the moment. Without the subscription, new players will be more inclined to join and old players are welcome to return!

If you currently have paid time beyond today and would like reimbursement, please contact me directly.

In other news, I will continue with revisions to creatures and improvements this month. The creature changes have taken a long time and were delayed by the recent optimization patches but are coming along well now!

    What happens to tribe decay since it was based on subscription?

    @zymmie, I doubt if there will be any real change, a sub kept the timer on 0 days, but there's quite a few tribes that ran without one and just logged in every 5 or 6 weeks to reset the timer.
