How did you find Blockade Runner?
« on: September 13, 2011, 12:12:15 pm »
I'm curious, where did you read the first time about Blockade Runner?
I know many are from the bay 12 forum but I'm sure there also other forums where people talk about this game.So tell your story!


I was following the development of Liquid Cube on Indiedb and read about Blockade Runner in the last news entry.
Then I was just waiting for an entry on Indiedb, which never came and was also watching this website for news until really the website was relaunched.

I was following a minecraft server with a space/spaceship theme that was being modded and someone posted a link to this game in the forum.

/tg/, 4chan; we started brainstorming 40k build projects and ways to implement turrets without mobile bits (a ship rotating within another ship basically, to say nothing of aiming up/down)

Notch retweeted a tweet by PCgamer to an article about this game, it seemed very interesting so I became a full blown member of the community!

So that's why there were so many new members/topics when I woke up - we've been Notch'd!

Well im one of all the new Notch'ees!  ;D

Love Sci fi games and minecraft.. so yeah, bought it immediatly ! ;)

Funny, Notch became famous this way also..
played it long before infdev, when there only was a flat map and creative mode
until Penny arcade drew a comic about minecraft and suddenly the game exploded!

I seriously hope the same happens here, this game has a potential for the ultimate sci fi game! <3

But all in all : Congratz on the exposure to the interwebs and thanks for the prospect of a sweeeeet game!  :-*
