So this is kinda a dumb question, how do I save the game if that is possible? I couldn't find an option for it...
U Kept word! awesome thanks!
@Brian ... no save game option yet... ;)
I'm so excited for you, me, and everyone else who is about to enjoy this.
Oh no! I guess I misunderstood...When will the Mac release be?
how and where do we leave feed back for the game? Its beautiful, but keeps crashing.
my carpenter keeps getting stuck then have to restart
Saw the e-mail saying the alpha was released while out, and was so excited to play when I got home. But when I went to go redeem my copy and they said I didn't have one, I realized that I backed to low a tier to get to play, haha. Oh well, just got to wait for the release, hope everyone else has fun!
Sweet! If I pledged for the $45 tier how can I do I retrieve my second key?
@ Jason V: the second key is part of the download page it hould be located under the steam key. it will be labeled as gift key
hi, how about linux build of alpha1? Win32 version doesn't work in wine :(
Excellent news. How about the mac build now so we can join in on the fun? Any ETAs on that?
Any chance you guys could add wasd for camera control in the future? :)
Thank you for the alpha. The game is crashing a bit, hope the reporting feature helps for future updates :)
Every time I try and build the simple structure my workers get about 80% done then just get stuck mulling about :(
Love that the game is out! But found a bug. When I do simple room the game crash.
Thanks guys for keeping to your promise. The game still does not work for me but an alpha is an alpha I guess.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU!!!
Just been playing for a few minutes, obviously very early on but I love it! The whole feel is just what I was hoping for.
Here's to happy testing!
Fantastic game. This is exactly what I was hoping for!
As you may expect, we need to (as a community) start reporting all those nasty little bugs! For example, as others have said; building a "Simple Room" crashes the game.
Some animations, such as sitting and sleeping, will pop a couple of times (snap into position, reset, and then "cast" the animation properly).
Onwards and upwards guys! Thank you so much for this game!
Oooh how cute.
But they seem a little confused. Getting stuck while getting stuck, building houses out of berries, and suddenly forgetting what they were about to do... also picking up and dropping, picking up and dropping, picking up an dropping the same logs in the stockpile over and over and over again.
I believe the berries might be poisonous! :D
On a more serious note: I tried to investigate a bit - and I do believe that things start to go awry exactly the moment when two logs inhabitate the same spot. This tends to happen when the first scaffolding is removed. Someone carries a log to the stockpile and puts it on top of another log, but it falls down into the other log. And that seems to break the A.I.
Hope that helps. Will do some further tests in time, but gotta go now ;)
Thank you for not excluding people who do not have steam.
I'll add my voice to a request for the Mac version!
Would love a Mac version as well!!
looks like there will be no doubt of what im going to be doing when i get home from work today!
So how do we get the Alpha via Steam instead of Humble??? There was no option for Steam, but it's mentioned in the video, and I"ve seen people mention it in the comments below.
Nvm, I figured it out... lol
I don't seem to be able to download the game of the humble website.
I already have it in my steam library, can't wait to get home tomorrow and try it out!
Program actually ran fairly smoothly on my machine. Running an ASUS gamers republic.
1. There is a shadow seam in the lighting sometimes when you rotate.
2. Ai is understandably kinda dumb right now, I assume the carpenter job is not actually functioning as even though I managed to queue up several builds, he mostly stood around and gazed at the sky, ate, and slept. They wouldn't stockpile much. Once they fetched a load, or built a brick or two, they wandered back to the fire.
3. A single character would occasionally freeze for awhile until something mysteriously resolved. Then off they go.
4. After awhile they sort of gave up and started sitting around. They seemed to not want to finish the little house.
5. Menu was easy to navigate, but the second time I ran the game, the arrow was off by a full selection. For instance if I hovered over dining table, table for one would highlight instead.
I like the look of the game, I look forward to even more function. :)
How do you save?
Can you pause
whenever you guys are back, the website isn't loading for me, can't download etc.
would like halp with this
Sorry, just a min after saying that, I realised I hadn't claimed it, it's in my humble download page now, so... yeah.
Wow, this is pretty impressive for how little time you guys have had. Congrats on a beautiful start. I really have no idea how to control anything, but its a wonderful start. Thanks for making this for us.
Hey Everyone! Thanks for the feedback. I think we're starting to get a good handle on what bugs we need to focus on next!

@Saul, no pausing or saving yet
@Jordan, try checking out our download faq:
@hooby, it's so true, we have a TON of pathfinding bugs.
I'm just wondering... Is the game supposed to freeze and/or crash as soon as the day timer ends? :P Seems as soon as night starts the game freezes and/ or crashes on its own at/ around the same time every time.
I have waited forever for the first playable demo and it's so worth, even if all I can do is restart over and over. Amazing!
@LifesContradict ... no, its not supposed to crash then... but it sounds like an interesting bug, if you can reliably repeat it... :)
feel free to submit a report at the link mentioned just below!
Having trouble getting the gift code to work for my wife's copy of the game. She's claimed the gift copy on Humble, but it displays as a widget and never actually gives us any kind of code to enter or download link to download from. Is it because she's on a Mac?
Glad to see the game is progressing. I have no interest in the alpha - I just want the final, bug-free version. :p
In the future please call out which platforms the alpha is available for and when you expect to have alpha versions available for all platforms.
As a Mac user, I'm not interested in using VMs to try out pre-release content, and there is nothing in the message above that notes that there is no native alpha available for Mac at this time. Having to search through recent comments to find this information is lame.
@scott They've mentioned that windows will be the only supported platform at alpha many times now. they even had mentioned it before they were even funded, if you don't care enough to read anything before launch, it's your fault that you have to search the comments for the answer.
Hey I backed them with $30 does that give me access to the game now? If not when will I get it? I'm just curious cause I want to do a LP on my youtube channel
i switched emails i was wondering if you could send me it again on my new email, also can i have a the mac version?
Please keep us updated
Is there a Mac Version? Just went to download the alpha and was sorely disappointed to see windows only. Please let me know if there will be a mac version.
Where can I download the game now?
Yes, where can I download the game?
