Hello again everyone! It’s been a while since our pre-release Dev Thoughts and we’ve got a few new thoughts to share with you!

I strongly recommend watching the video version of the Dev Thoughts this month as it includes all the below content as well as a lengthy Community Q&A Interview with the co-founders of Hopoo Games - Duncan and Paul.
  • Where did the name “Hopoo” come from?

  • Who is to blame for Captain’s abilities not being available in hidden realms?

  • DEADBOLT 2 WHEN?
Find out the answers to these questions and many more by watching the below video!

Hello everyone!


Before we get started today a HUGE thank you from everyone here at Hopoo Games for jumping in and trying Survivors of the Void - we have had an absolute blast watching your streams and tweets and Discord posts about your brand new Risk of Rain 2 experiences! For us as a team, SotV was definitely the most ambitious thing we’ve done to date and we’re thrilled with the reception!

We’re currently working on a patch that should fix most of the issues you have reported to us, along with some balance/gameplay changes. Please note that these are only some of the changes we’re working on, and we will provide full patch notes for these changes on release!

Oh yea… patch notes. We’ve learned from our mistake on not releasing patch notes for the expansion’s release -... Read more

Thank you to everyone who has followed along with each of the Dev Thoughts over the last 5 months, it’s been a wild ride and it's been great talking with you all - this won't be the last time you hear from me as we do have some more surprises for you in the not-too-distant future!

3.7.4 Deployment Downtime Incident Report

I would like to take some time to explain what happened and how we will be preventing it in the future.

Timeline

At 12:00 NZT today we took the realm down to deploy 3.7.4. The downtime took approximately 18 minutes and the realm was back up at 12:18 NZT. At 12:25 NZT we were informed by Kakao Games, our Korean publisher, that Korean users who were logging in were being presented with the Create New Account dialog instead of logging into the existing accounts.
