0RBITALIS NEW UPDATES ADDED ON STEAM EARLY ACCESS

London – 16 th May 2014 – One-of-a-kind independent developer Alan Zucconi and UK independent publisher Mastertronic today announced a myriad of new updates to gravity simulator 0RBITALIS, currently available on Steam Early Access.

Updated features to further enrich the celestial experience include friend leaderboards and histograms to let players compare score distribution at a glance. Quality settings and zoom effects have also been refined to create a more streamlined experience, and there are new ambient soundtracks from Doseone. Think you’ve mastered your orbit? Ten new levels have now been added to increase the challenge!  

Alan Zucconi said: “It's hard to describe the amount of positive feedback I’ve had from the community so far. Seeing people playing for days, trying to achieve a stable orbit, has been the biggest reward for me. This is why the update brings new features such as friends leaderboards and histograms.”

“I also showed the game to the developers of Kerbal Space Program, resulting in a secret level which reproduces the Kerbol System,” continued Alan. “The update also features homages to other big indie titles such as Robin Arnott's SoundSelf. I am looking forward to hearing the players' feedback and I really can't wait for the next update.”

Stuart Morton, Producer at Mastertronic, added: “0RBITALIS has been going down a storm with the thousands of people who have so far picked it up and this update by Alan is the result of their feedback. The Steam Early Access community is a great help for developers and I have no doubt 0RBITALIS will continue to improve.”

0RBITALIS is a simulation that blends physics perfection with gaming, available now on Steam Early Access for PC.
