This week I began a redesign of the SPS website. The graphical work is all finished and I am wrapping up the backend to handle purchases of Aigilas. I am using FastSpring to handle payment processing, but their file hosting restrictions don’t fit well with the culture I want to curate. Instead, I am implementing the following to ease updates for paying customers.
- A customer buys the game
- They are sent a serial number
- They register online and provide that serial number
- This is used when they launch the game to ensure it stays up to date
The backend should be wrapped up by the end of the day. After that I will get the ball rolling on launching the new site and store.
