Valley 2 Beta .804 "The Angst Of A 360 In Search Of Its Control Node" Released!

This one has a title that's a bit of an in-joke to some old AI War stuff.  At any rate, it's primarily referencing that the gamepad defaults are now a lot better thanks to the tireless work of community contributor Pepisolo.  What a big relief!

There are also a number of more cleanup/clarity type of things on both the adventure side, helping to make things as balanced and interesting as possible.  The late-game balance for the adventure side actually has seen a much more extreme change that should bring it more inline in difficulty with what people would expect.  And farms have been nerfed pretty hard on the strategic side, helping to bring more balance to the food situation.

There's a little bit of sound effect work in here, and I had planned on doing more, but frankly I'm out of energy for the day.  It's been more than a month since I've had a day off, so I'm going to take a few hours off and come back recharged for tomorrow.  The 1.0 release is only a week from tomorrow, so it's great to see this all coming together so well at this point!

More to come soon.  Enjoy!

This is a standard update that you can download through the in-game updater itself, if you already have any version of the game.  If you have the beta on Steam, it will automatically update for you.  When you launch the game, you'll see the notice of the update having been found if you're connected to the Internet at the time. If you don't have the standalone game, you can download that hereIf you already own the first game, just use your existing license key to unlock the sequel for free!
