So I attended the Hellfire Games Event tonight at 7pm Eastern Time and wrote down what Novus_Cooldown said to everyone.
They've got a Home Tycoon update in the pipeline to address some issues. Namely, a leaderboard fix and an issue with the audio cutting out on helicopters for some people. So, that's in the QA loops and should hopefully go live in the near future.
Some of us may know that they're working on the official Hellfire Games gift machine (The Giftinator 9000)! Now that the New Heights update is live, they're in full production on the Giftinator. They've gotten requests to make one for over 2 years now, but they had to make it awesome. More features than any gift machine you've seen so far. We'll be able to gift items to friends and ourselves. They've put a lot of thought into how to make it the best gift machine possible. Which of course means longer developer time, but it's coming! No release date to mention just yet so hang tight for more news!
Starting next week, they'll be kicking off months of new Home Tycoon content, events, and promotions. There will be plenty of new stuff coming so keep an eye on the blog, forums and facebook (facebook.com/HomeTycoon).
The free test drive week event is always one of their most popular events. Now that they have helicopters, they're able to do free test flight week. It's to soon to announce when the first one will be, but it is coming at some point in the future. Hellfire Games says, "It's always awesome to watch 16 cars flying all over the place during the Free Test Drive week."
There is no furniture planned for the Home Tycoon store at the moment, but the GIFTINATOR 9000 will have lots of goodies!
They say they can't add more tiles for Home Tycoon because of memory. That is why they offer new city purchases. Hellfire says that there may be more Moodies coming in the future! People seemed to enjoy the first batch, Hellfire said.
That is the wrap up of what I seen at the Hellfire Games, and for those that didn't make it this is what happen!
