Hey everyone! I'm super excited to finally announce the beta for Bulwark of the Abyss! With Beta 3, the build is much more optimized and SHOULD run on more iOS devices than ever before. But please, the more testers the better. I have to continue working on the game proper, but I want to make sure it scales appropriately Bulwark of the Abyss Beta Page I want to thank everyone in advance for testing the game. I've been looking at it for so long alone that I need new eyes on it to make sure I'm on the right track and that people will have fun playing it. Cheers! See you in the Abyss! UPDATE 4.5: Okay, even better: I can no longer crash the game on my 2GB RAM having iPad Pro. Hopefully this is a sign of good things! I will have an updated beta tonight if everything continues to be good. Thank you for your patience AGAIN, over and over. UPDATE 4: Okay! So I fixed Windows / MacOS builds, something somewhere wasn't up to date. As for iOS optimization I have the game running on my iPad Pro 9.7" (2016) and it has 2GB of RAM. It will occasionally crash when the player rests. I think there's a memory leak in here somewhere. But we're edging closer and closer to further device compatibility! Hang in there. UPDATE 3: Back to the drawing board. For some reason, something somewhere in the game is crashing Windows builds consistently and MacOS sometimes. It’s throwing no errors or logs to track either, so that’s... interesting. This may delay things a bit! UPDATE 2: Okay, development is moving along. I’ve made an updated windows/Mac build on the website that has fixed the PC platform issues that weren’t Present in mobile. As for iOS, I’ve been hard at work on the RAM management bottleneck as well as overall performance optimizations + various device exclusive resolutions (I overlooked that so I’m sure IPhone 8 Plus users are like “why is this so stretch?” Answer: I’m a doofus.) Anyways! Hoping to have a new build for testing tomorrow. Thank you all again for testing Bulwark of the Abyss. And to clarify: yes, there will be a story. There will be lore. This game has a lot going on it, but the beta is specifically for breaking and fixing to find the technical limitations and exploits. Don’t worry! UPDATE: I just want everyone to know that the ram is definitely priority #1 to the Nth degree. Truth is, I didn’t notice the impact various additions to the game were having on the RAM situation until literally 24 hours before the beta went live. I’m hoping to have some sort of progress on this by next week. Fingers crossed. But I hate alienating so many people. Like an iPad 6th gen from 2018 has 2Gb of ram... I can’t keep people from playing the game.
