This weekend we demoed SimpleRockets 2 at the Pixel Pop Festival in St. Louis, Missouri. It was a great turnout and we had several people check out our booth and try the game out. It was a great opportunity to watch players use the game and see how they responded to it. It really helped us identify parts of the game that still need work and it also helped us to find a wide range of bugs. We have a lot of work to do to get the game ready for release!

Since many of you couldn't make it, we decided to make this video so you could have a virtual experience of our demo. Enjoy!

Also, here are some pictures we took at the event.

    @Venus Ya, with the Pixel Pop stuff I've posted weekly now for 3 weeks, so I'm giving myself a break from SR2 blogging tomorrow. I will make a blog post, but it won't have anything to do with SR2.

    You got your wish, because you can create your own planets! But not sure if people can create blue atmosphere at the top of atmosphere and reddish at below. It’s hard tho. It requires a lot of skill. @Gregrox

    @Venus I disagree. No gas giants should have atmospheres that aren't blue. I don't mean the clouds, of course those can and should be brown for a jupiter-like planet. In addition, blue atmospheres on a brown planet creates a really quite beautiful somewhat contrasting color scheme. Also, even Venus' sky is blue from above the cloud tops! You can almost see some subtle limb-lighting of blue in your own profile pic.

    Actually, for my opinion this is Jupiter and that gas giant shown in the game is not like on real life, but it’s worth it.@Gregrox

    Hi! I love the progress, the game looks really pretty, and I'm impressed with how it looks and how it appears to work! But I will say one thing: Jupiter (and indeed all of the gas giants) have blue atmospheres, not brown! It's because of rayleigh scattering, which is not unique to nitrogen/oxygen breathing mix. Mars' atmosphere is brown because of the dust, which Jupiter does not have, only clouds.

    @WeSeekANARCHY Yes pushed back a bit because the overall excitment caused them to realize the game should be full 3d not a 2d game with 3d graphics, in a way the game got extended not pushed back.

    @Nooneoone well not exactly delayed but it's far behind schedule, the first time they announced the game they said it would come out in early 2018, now its pushed to 2019

    @Nooneoone i agree, a new reply system would be good, but i don't care about it so much, let them work on the game it has already been delayed by a year
