And why are there seriously no changes to the game? It is still the same they need to update the game…
At least new players are coming in. Not as many as you want them to but they are coming in.
David is the only full-time programmer as to my understanding. XGen is a small team, and they have other priorities that go towards keeping the lights on. I truly do believe that they would like to show Stick Arena more support, but they simply do not have the manpower or resources currently.
This game has daily 5-15players online… If it has like 200-300 active players i would be so happy but it won’t sadly happen.
There’s been a noticeable increase of quick start players since the Steam release.
That’s funny, I’ve been seeing more players every time I’ve logged on. I’ve been coming on less, but you see my point.
And as previously stated, Xgen is currently running a little short on manpower and resources. Pretty sure they’d have fully updated SA by now otherwise, seeing as there was a small quality of life update a while ago
I have definitely been seeing a lot more new players than usual in 2-D and Paper Thin City. I’d know, since I’ve played a ton of games with these new guys already and gotten my k/d bumped up as a result.
The increase isn’t alarmingly big, but it’s there. In fact, at some times, I see more new players than experienced ones.
It’s probably a long shot. But, maybe XGen can open up some of the development duties to the Stick Arena community.
I also hope they release the game code and media assets before the game reaches end of life.
Because the amount of players online at 7AM on a Tuesday is totally the best indicator of the activity of a game.
I had seen around 30-50 new players after putting the game on Steam. It’s only a week since openly Steam SA version. Most times when i’ve logged on I saw more than 15 people. It’s too early to judge. I hope SA will more active in the near future. However, at the moment it’s not bad.
I’ve definitely seen some new people when i got on last. Pretty cool to see the game rise again, at least a little. If XGen can find some coders to add spinners or weapons to UPDATE the game title, & even the SWF, this game will skyrocket back to around 2013 standard
