Taking a short break

Lazlo Bonin (Lead Developer) 4 years ago updated by William ianneci 4 years ago 9

Hi everyone!

First of all, I want to thank you all for your involvement in the community. You've submitted great ideas and reported in-depth bug reports that have already helped improve Bolt in merely 2 weeks.

Now that the dust has settled since release and that all the initial bugs have been fixed, I will be taking a short break. Developing Bolt was a very intense 9 months long solo marathon and frankly, I'm exhausted. I decided to take my first vacation in a long time to get some rest and come back energized and motivated.

I will be back in the first week of September. Until then, I will not be active in the community, but I will check weekly to see if there is any urgent, breaking bug. In the mean time, please try to help each other out!

I can't wait to implement the ideas we have in store. This is just the beginning, and the next year will be amazing for visual scripting in Unity!

Thanks again & see you all soon! :)

Enjoy. If you visit Vegas in the next 5 days I'll buy you a round.


Enjoy you well deserved time off :)


Have a well deserved, great time :-)


Take it easy Lazlo!  You deserve it!


Thanks everyone for understanding! 

It wasn't an easy decision to "abandon" you even for a few days, but I think it's going to be beneficial in the long run.

I just did a small weekly check-in as I promised. I'm glad to see you helped each other out already :)

I took good notes of the bugs you had mainly with ordering and events. I'll fix them as a priority as soon as I get back to work. Don't hesitate to submit more bug reports in the mean time!

I haven't had an epiphany about fixing the loading times yet, but it's always on my mind, so hopefully I'll find a solution in the next days.

Did my second weekly check-in and took notes of the issues you were encountering. I'll be back in just a few days now, excited to get to work again!


Just got back from my vacation!

It's late here and I'll be mostly unpacking tonight, but tomorrow I'll:

  • Answer every topic
  • Post a roadmap for the next few weeks
  • Get to work!

I'm very well rested and excited to get back to work on Bolt. 

You can expect a good pace of updates in the next few weeks!

Thanks again for understanding and helping each other out in my absence! :)
