1-25: Slamdance Away!

The Base Invaders! team recently participated in the Slamdance games festival!
The cold snow and impossible parking situation in Park City could not stop the Base Invaders team! We were glad to be able to attend and meet up with the developers of great games like "Cultivation", "Toribash", and "Steam Brigade".

We here at team Seventh Sigma strive to bring you the best, but if your Base Invaders addiction is running low, be sure and check out these great games!

What's coming up? Well, we're less than 2 months away from our (final?) showing at GDC 07, so we've still got time to add a feature or two. Keep a look out for the final version of Base Invaders!, coming soon! !

9-8: IGF submission!

Base Invaders! has been entered into the Professional division of the Independent Games Festival!
We here at team Seventh Sigma hope for the best, and look forward to joining the ranks of Rumble Box and Bontago as DigiPen games that entered and succeeded in the professional division.

In addition to competing against such fine student games as Toblo and The Blob, we're also fighting for glory against successful Independent titles like Eets and Red Orchestra. So do your part and support Base Invaders!

Next major update? Well, we've got another 2 months before the Student submission. We're looking forward to adding the ability to skip Cinematics, and several new *hush*hush* secret features!
