Hello all, it’s been a while.

As you may have seen, there were not new update of Build&Defend for about two months now. Don’t worry, the game is not dead and there are still a lot (possibly and infinity) of new stuffs I want to enrich B&D with!

I have been quiet busy lately: I moved to the U.S. for my new job. And because of this new job, and because of all the logistic related tasks (getting an apartment, buying stuffs, etc.) , I had a very small amount of free time since.

I am award of problems of continuity in game development, I don’t want for B&D to die, but before I left, I knew that I would not have as much time (at least at the beginning) to develop B&D. So before I left, I worked on a new version of B&D. This version will include a lot of new content (new type of food, new way to deal with workers and the introduction of alchemistry), but since a new version also means a set of new bugs to deal with, I did not wanted to release it before the moving. Also, I thought that having a “almost ready version” is a nice way to resume after a development break. So to sum-up, I am resuming the development of B&D today, and I hope to release the new version in the following weeks.

Also, I saw your comment about the fact that PayPal is not working anymore. Apparently Paypal has detected that I was now living in the U.S., and it seems that in the U.S. you need to provide PayPal with your Social Security Number (For those, how don’t know, a SSN is a number that is linked of a lot of information about yourself – especially some kind of bank history), and it is not something that is quick to obtain. Therefore, my PayPal account get blocked. Never the less, I finally got my SSN, and I hope everything to be solved in the following day. I am sorry for the inconvenient.

Now, I just have to finish by telling you that I am very excited to resume the development of B&D, and I hope you will love the new coming version as much you enjoyed (I hope) the previous ones!

welcome back Achoum!

Now about the problem with al the spammers,
if you could give me some forum master rights, i'll gladly delete those annoying spammers for you.

Or maybe you could make it that only players who bought the game can post something on the forums.

I'll be waiting for your response

Hi Ohg123,
You simply need to go on the website, to login and to re-download the game.

Achoum,welcome to the US!

Hey, with all of this spam around do you need a moderator?

Hi Side367,

It is nice of you to offer to help as a moderator.

Currently, the detection of spam is done semi-automatically with a set of regular expressions. As you may have see, the detection really need to be updated (I need to find some time -- but I prefer to work on the game for now). But, I think that a simple list of conditions can still make the job.

However, if at some point the spam situation gets out of control, I might ask for the help of your guys.

Tkx for you offer.

On another topic, the new version of B&D is almost ready, and it should probably be out by the end of the week. In the mean time, new pictures will be added in the "screen shot" gallery during the week.

You just made my week with this news! I can't wait to see what great new content is in store. I'm super excited for alchemy and seeing the kinds of potions there will be.
