A Story I heard

It’s more of a rumor, but at steam dev days I heard of a conversation that went down between @SDGNelson and some other developer suggesting that he doesn’t create 4.0 as it would restart his playerbase.

Just had this on my mind and I thought I’d find out if it ever happened ¯_(ツ)_/¯

I’ve never really thought about this… I don’t think the playerbase would be restarted, but when / if 4.0 is pushed to the main branch (when it’s ready, of course), I’m fairly certain that we will lose players but also gain players. You can’t keep everyone happy (I know a lot of people who hate literally every update), and some people also just don’t like change. However, the game will probably look a fair bit different, and this will probably attract a lot more players.

It could go bad, but it’ll probably go well.

Well we did have an increased amount of active players in 3.0 compared to 2.0 according to steam charts. If large improvements were done and kinda satisfied a lot of people, maybe we could reach a little higher.

Basically we lose a few thousands, but gain tens of thousands afterwards
