Dev Diary 20/2024: We’ve Finally Cracked the Scheduling Code

Let’s quickly catch you up on what we’ve been up to at Endless Studio! 🚀

Next Time on Endless Studio…

(If you’re new here, or just need a refresher: Our next update, 2024.3, is the final step before we start creating the eagerly awaited Manage Your Own Network feature set, chosen by our biggest fans as the next significant feature.)

In our last Dev Diary, we shared the many challenges we faced in developing a robust new Scheduling system, which is the foundation for the upcoming network management feature set.

We are now thrilled to report that after yet another few weeks of hard work and at least 10,000 play-tested turns in the game, we finally cracked the code! 🥳

Check out the short screen recording on our Instagram to see the many shows scheduled across all the networks.

With Scheduling finally done, we estimate update 2024.3 is about 75% complete. We’ll now focus on the new Networks screen. Hopefully, the rest of the update development will go smoothly, and we’ll be able to release it soon.

Supporting Endless Studio

Endless Studio is a niche game with a dedicated but small community. Traditional pricing models, like one-time purchases, are impractical since they would provide very little income. Third-party ads wouldn’t generate much revenue either, given our small player base.

To ensure ongoing development, we offer Supporter Subscriptions. This allows our dedicated fans to support our tiny, two-man game studio. While we’re still far from covering our development costs, we’re hopeful we’ll get there eventually. If you haven’t already, and if you can, please consider subscribing under Game Menu / Supporter Subscription! With a Level 1 Supporter Subscription, you’ll speed up development and enjoy the game ad-free. With Level 2, you’ll also get Early Access to new features, participate in Feature Voting, and be included in the Hall of Fame!

We are grateful for your support and strive to deliver as much value to you as possible! 😘

Feature Voting Status Report

Our Level 2 Supporter Subscribers greatly influence what we develop next through their monthly votes on the Feature Voting screen. We’re currently in Voting Season 3, which will conclude when the winner of the previous season, the Manage Your Own Network feature set, is released with update 2024.4. Here are the current Top 5 features:

  • Planned Show Ending: 2289 votes
  • Critics & Awards: 1862 votes
  • Feature Movies: 721 votes
  • Producing Whole Seasons: 556 votes
  • More Talent Variety: 354 votes

That's all folks! 🐷 Enjoy your weekend and happy studio building! Stay tuned for more updates from Endless Studio. 📺
