Awesomenauts Community Address #2: Music & Balance

It's been another great week for the Awesomenauts, still battling for galactic domination! We have been playing a lot of matches ourselves, scoring prestige levels left and right. The community is still growing, and we're seeing completely full matches most of the time. If you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber, make sure you get your copy fast, the game is free for only a few more days!

One of the things you guys have been asking a lot was to release the soundtrack. Well, good news! For starters, we've decided to give away the extended theme song! It's available for free here: http://www.awesomenauts.com/themesong, so go get it! In other great news, Sonic Picnic is working to release the soundtrack on bandcamp! They made the music for the game, and they've been very pleased with the great response. So we've been getting a lot of requests for this and we're working very hard to make it possible. They expect to release the soundtrack next Friday (1st of June).

In the meantime in the Ronimo office we have also been playing Awesomenauts a lot. But we were playing the new build, finalizing new balance tweaks and characters. A few things that will change in the balance patch: Leon's slow upgrades & tongue, Voltar's drones & healing, Yuri's timebubble and Froggy G's whirlwind shield. Apart from tweaking existing values, we will also be replacing a couple of upgrades.

This Saturday we're inviting local high level Awesomenauts players to take a look at the new characters, items and balance. If you're interested in joining up and live in the Netherlands, check out the forum thread here: http://www.awesomenauts.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1706 Once the patch has been put through its paces, we'll finalize it and send it to Microsoft and Sony. This means we have no final ETA for when the patch goes live, but we're hoping to have it in your hands in a few short weeks.
