2019-04-21 — Easter update
Firstly, I'd like to wish all of our dedicated fans and players a very happy Easter with their families. A highlight for me whenever a holiday like Easter rolls around are the events we'd develop and unleash for fans to play through for fun prizes and character upgrades.
Over the last few months, I've come to realize that this is make-or-break for the game's future. Because I believe so much in our vision and determination to deliver an amazing product, I was willing to take on the risks and financial losses associated with shutting the game down completely while we redevelop it into something the community deserves.
Recently, we've hired several contractors to help realize our vision and we are constructing a game that I think is truly unique and innovative.
Most of the vision comes from years upon years of your feedback in surveys, to me personally or to other staff. It's a cut-down "no nonsense" version of the game that is simple for beginners and incredibly deep for fans. We're cutting away unpopular features, rethinking core gameplay and going deeper than we've ever gone before on flagship features.
This means adaptive gameplay, instant feedback, interactivity, deep backstory, feature crossover and an entire game ecosystem including a brand new fictionalized map that will grow and adapt. Each location within the completely redeveloped DownTown Mafia is unique and desirable for different reasons.
Today, we're showing you Valencia Hills, Downtown's premier city and finance district known for its wild party atmosphere and unquestionable crime syndicate influence.
Expect more updates soon and I can't wait to unleash months of dedication and innovation on our most dedicated players.
