One Year Anniversary, and Alpha 3 with Farming, Saving, and Loading!
Today, on the one-year anniversary of the Stonehearth Kickstarter, Team Radiant is proud to announce that Alpha 3 is now live on your Humble Bundle download page and via Steam!
Though we still have quite a long way to go before Stonehearth is everything we want it to be, Alpha 3 introduces the basics of our farming/food economy, as well as the ability to save (and load!) your progress. Alpha 3 also builds on Alpha 2 (which introduced the trapper) by improving significantly on AI system efficiency and the game's memory footprint.
Anniversaries are also a great time to reflect on all the amazing things that have happened this year, none of which would have been possible without the support of our Kickstarter backers--all of you.
Our deepest thanks to all of those of you who believed in us, and continue to believe in us. Every time the mountain of bugs looks insurmountable, or whenever we're weeks away from the next cool feature we want to see, we think of all the support you've given us over the past year, and we recommit to making Stonehearth the game we all can't wait to play.
Here's to the next 365,
-- Tom, Tony, Stephanie, Albert, Chris, and Doug
