Eco Report # 3 New Vehicle List
This version has a ton of various fixes, and major performance improvements, with the goal of supporting 100 simultaneous players. Still work to go on that front but made some major advances. Check out the change list here: https://ecoauth.strangeloopgames.com/changelog
And now we’re starting on the next major monthly update:
Eco Report #2: Eco Late Game Vehicles
We’re seeing a pretty interesting graph of players, which seems to indicate organic growth:
All in all a great launch, not without it’s bumps, but wouldn’t want to make it boring would we? And so, what’s next…
Eco Report #1
Hey all, it’s been a crazy week for us, where not only did we have the Steam Release, but a giant grant proposal to submit (which is 112 pages of FUN!) for a future project.
It all combined into a really epic time, with exciting developments like our login servers crashing shortly after we open the Steam floodgates (fixed now, but that was a wild ride).
Now that it’s out there and the dust has cleared a bit and people are discovering it at a much higher rate, it’s a good time to take stock and think about the future of Eco and where we want to take it in Early Access. And before looking to the future, it’s always fun to look to the past:
It looks like a completely different game over these three years, and basically it is (aside from the fact that you still have an axe and can chop down trees, so much else is totally different). That we were able to communicate our idea with our rough visuals in our Kickstarter and build a dedicated community over the years has been one of the best experiences I’ve had, and we’re super grateful to all our backers. It’s rewarding to hear they’re satisfied with what they invested in.

We’re super proud to get this version out there, and looking forward to lots more updates.

Eco Alpha 5.6 Released
Here’s a look at the new features in this release:
How to Save the Environment by Letting Kids Destroy It
This year’s Earth Day has given us a chance to reflect how the environment is more threatened than it has ever been. Worst of all, this is all occurring with indisputable evidence of the causes, dangers, and solutions to climate change readily available. The fact that climate deniers can still triumph in light of vast…
This year’s Earth Day has given us a chance to reflect how the environment is more threatened than it has ever been. Worst of all, this is all occurring with indisputable evidence of the causes, dangers, and solutions to climate change readily available. The fact that climate deniers can still triumph in light of vast supporting evidence is not only shameful, it’s surprising. We know the answers for how to address this, why can’t we do so as a society?
Eco 5.5 Released
We’re excited to announce Eco Alpha 5.5 is now available!
We’ve added a ton of new features to the game, as well as balancing, polish, and bug fixes.
Eco Alpha 5.4 Released
Should make playing a lot smoother! Update or pick it up here: www.strangeloopgames.com/eco, and you can join us and the community on our Discord chat room here: https://discord.gg/ge3JDp2
Eco Alpha 5 Released.
We’ve left Alpha 5 in the oven a bit longer to get it more polished, and today it’s ready to be released! Check it out at strangeloopgames.com/eco, where you can pick up the alpha version and give it a try.
New in Alpha 5:
New climate and ecosystem model, tracking ground and air pollution, global temperature from CO2 released, sea levels rising, deforestation impacts, biomes that change, dynamic irrigation, and much more.
Eco Alpha 5, Ecosystem Update
We’ve decided to give it a few more weeks of polish and bug-fixing before we send it out, so we’re moving the Alpha 5 date to Oct 24th. Alpha 4 is available now at strangeloopgames.com/eco however, and all buyers will get all future versions (including a Steam key).
Eco Alpha 4.2 Released!
