Frequently Asked Questions
There have been a lot of requests for other languages, and we're VERY adamant that everyone gets a chance to play the game and nobody is left out.
For this we'll either be using our own funds, or trying to rely on community contributors to get the game translated.
So far our goals are to have the game translated and fully playable in the following languages, but we don't want to rule out other languages.

We believe VERY strongly in DRM free software, and don't like forcing people into certain systems.
Our main distribution platform will be Steam, for those that don't want Steam keys for their game will have other ways to obtain a digital copy. We'll be updating these methods later this year.Last updated:
Yes. There's no official 'win' condition to achieve. There's no story that you haven't crafted yourself by keeping your family alive for as long as possible.Last updated:
To make the game as good as it can be, we need to be able to work on the game full-time. Currently we're working on it part-time, whilst we keep ourselves in food and housing by working day jobs.
We'd like to be able to devote all of our time to this game, and if we're going to deliver it within just shy of a year, we're going to have to give up our current jobs and support ourselves until the final release.
We're also in need of some new equipment, as some of our current hardware is very old and slow, and is frankly slowing down the development speed.Last updated:
Will the family always be the same, or can I pick my own characters? Will there be other races to choose?
Currently there's only one set family type, with randomized names selected from a long database of the most common names. The work involved in making animations specific for different sprites is fairly daunting, but it's something we'd really like featured, so hopefully it'll be a feature in the future.
If it features in the game, there will be options to have difference races and sexual orientations.Last updated:
Currently we don't have any specific plans to make the game moddable, but we're definitely open to the idea of releasing tools in the future to make this a possibility.Last updated:
Each family member has a unique set of randomized stats at the beginning of the game. These increase with each task they perform. They won't 'level up' exactly, as it's a bit more complicated than that. The game will feature ways to increase the ability of a given family member's skill in a certain field.Last updated:
The short answer is YES, though we don't know exactly when we'll be adding this as a feature.Last updated:
Yes, currently the player will be able to add more rooms to their shelter, given they've scavenged enough supplies to be able to do so. Currently the game runs on a Z axis, so more rooms in the shelter will be layers going backwards.Last updated:
Yep! Your donation automatically entitles you to a key as soon as the game is released on Steam.Last updated:
