      We're looking into this, there was a problem, we hope to resolve it soon, we're sorry!
      If you received more than 1 key, please don't resell them, we might have to cancel them to fix this.

      [Sorry to duplicate this from the update comments]
      I've received the email, but the steam key download links (on the sundown page) just take me to the games steam page - they don't seem to be providing a steam key.
      (Note that the main game steam key appears in text by the links, but the nosferatu and soundtrack keys aren't showing.)

    3. Wild Factor Creator on

      I just received the key. So probably tomorrow or the day after.

      Merci beaucoup.
      Cela dit la nouvelle version est prévue pour quand svp (peut-être déjà annoncé désolé) ? Qu'on ne rate pas le coche !

    12. Wild Factor Creator on

      Oui Gaspard The Devil. Cela "devrait" fonctionner en théorie en copiant les fichiers de sauvegarde du MAC au PC (mais je n'ai jamais tester l'opération).

      Ok c'est cela en effet. Merci bien... Euh... si je trouve à jouer sur Windows d'ici là, je pourrais sans problème poursuivre mes aventures sur Mac une fois le bug réparé (sans rien perdre) ? Merci.

    14. Wild Factor Creator on

      Désolé !

    15. Wild Factor Creator on

      Hello Gaspard The Devil,
      Je suppose que tu es sous MAc ?
      (il y a un bug sous MAC, qui devrait être réparé dès la nouvelle version)

      Bonjour, c'est encore nous.
      On a juste un petit problème : on aimerait sauvegarder une partie. A ce jour nous n'arrivons pas à sauvegarder les parties précédentes. Lorsqu'on nous propose de charger le jeu on ne nous propose pas l'ancien fichier. Merci de bien vouloir nous aider.

    17. Wild Factor Creator on

      Hello Gaspard The Devil . Lien renvoyé par message privée.

      Gaspard The Devil on

      OK, pas de problème... Merci beaucoup.
      Cependant pourriez vous me dire où "retrouver" la version "sendowl", svp ? Car nous sommes visiblement passés au travers !...
      Because The Devil a soif de sortir de son hibernation !...
      Merci encore...

    19. Wild Factor Creator on

      Hello Gaspard The Devil. Vous pouvez nous contacter en français, puisqu'on est Français :)
      Toutes nos excuses pour le retard ! Les développement de jeux vidéo ne se passent jamais comme on les avaient prévu. Et on a fait le choix de privilégier la qualité au détriment des délais. On est tristement dans la moyen des retards pour ce type de projet.
      Mais vous pouvez déjà jouer à la version en cours. Vous avez du recevoir un email de "sendowl" avec la version téléchargeable et jouable. La premiére version steam sortira cet automne :)
      Et je peux vous dire que la situation est plutôt bonne et qu'il y a peu de risque pour que le jeu ne sorte pas.
      Nous nous excusons encore pour le retard. Et vous pouvez nous écrire par email/message kickstarter/forum, on vous répondra.
      Merci encore pour votre soutien, sans l'aide des contributeurs rien n'aurait été possible !

      PS: Les noms dans les crédits du jeu sont affiché dans un ordre tiré au hasard à chaque fois, de manière à ne privilégier personne.

      Ah ben grâce au message envoyé, le surnom du fiston est apparu (on l'avait complètement oublié) comme la contribution (moindre que je ne le croyais y a cinq minutes, désolé..)... Pour le reste mes questions restent d'actualité.

      Excusez moi, ça va faire près de 2 ans que j'ai contribué à l'aventure (pour 50 ou 60 euros je crois..) après le Toulouse Game Show où je m'étais longuement entretenu avec le père du créateur...)... Ceci principalement pour mon fils qui avait neuf ans à l'époque.. je ne sais toujours pas si le jeu fonctionne, s'il va fonctionner un jour... Je ne me souviens même plus de mes mp & Co...
      Aussi pourrait-on me contacter en français svp afin de me renseigner (entre le vocable geek, l'anglais, les messages épisodiques, ça fait en effet longtemps que je ne suis plus votre actualité !)?...

    22. Wild Factor Creator on

      Oups Vincent Philippi, I forget to answer you on the steam key: In a few months.

    23. Wild Factor Creator on

      - Coen van der Wel Thanks you for this great feedback on the forum ! (I will answer to it on the forum)

      - Vincent Philippi, sorry the F12 bug :( This bug re-appear. I fixed it again for the next version. (There is an auto-save, but it only save every 15 minutes)

      Vincent Philippi

      Really love the game so far! it is really addicting.
      only i noticed that pressing the F12 key kills the game. when i tried saving, i accidentally pushed this button.
      leaving me to restart my wonderfull hotel again....

      when will the steam release be btw?

    25. Coen van der Wel

      This game is awesome and super addictive to play! I've spent most of the time I *should* have been sleeping this weekend on it, so much fun!

      (I'll try not to spam you with ideas, but I'll have a little topic on the forum with my experiences :D)

      Hello MoonRaven, we will do a kickstarter message about streaming that today.

    27. MoonRaven on

      Are we allowed to stream the new beta build?

    28. Wild Factor Creator on

      Sorry Julian C, I didn't see your message. For the Beta, we are not ready yet, all my apologies!
      We can't give you an exact date, yet.

    29. Julian C

      Hi. How are things coming? Any idea when Zombie backers will get to see the Beta key?

    30. Wild Factor Creator on

      Hello Bryan, press F3 on your keyboard, and "save" "load" should appear on the upper right of the Screen.
      Be aware that this functionality is not finished yet. It doesn't save everything, and it's probably still buggy.

    31. Bryan T Starr on

      How do you save the game am I just being an idiot : P

    32. Bryy Miller on

      Just for clarification: this isn't cool to stream on Twitch?

    33. Wild Factor Creator on

      Hello David Hayes,
      It's like gold. Some rocks have metallic inclusions (you can see them above the rock). Digging them will get you metal.

    34. David Hayes on

      I'm probably missing something silly, but I can't figure out how to get metal..? Am I supposed to dig Stone for it? All I've been finding is gold, haha

    35. June

      Ooh, gotcha. Really wish I could go, quite a few of the game devs I backed here on KS are attending. Looking forward to the alpha! \o/

    36. Wild Factor Creator on

      Hello June, we won't show machiaVillain to the public at Gamescom. We will only meet other dev, as well as the press. Mostly because we will still continue to work on the Alpha and having a stand would have taken too much of our time this year :)
      Alpha backers will have the Alpha soon !

    37. June

      I noticed on your dev log that you're going to be at Gamescom! I think it wouldn't hurt if you made an update here so if backers are attending they'll know to look for the game :)

    38. Bryan T Starr on

      Thanks for the update. Very excited for the alpha!

    39. Wild Factor Creator on

      Hello June,
      we hope next month.

    40. June

      Haha, even bugs can break out from spiders' webs if left alone :) At least the merchant delivers - he should have mummy assistants, "wrapping" the orders...

      All this makes me look forward to the alpha. Any idea how much still needs work? I don't want you to release it before it's ready, of course, but the progress so far is exciting.

    41. Wild Factor Creator on

      Hello June,
      all your monster can work more or less :) When they start a task, they've worn a costume.
      (the werewolves have a construction site hat).
      Marchand deliver victims strongly attached. Of course if you don't kill it after certain duration, the victim break free. But it's always cheaper to kill and cut your victim yourself, than buying it ready-to-eat. (but your monster need to wait a few hours and may not like it)

    42. June

      Was wondering how things were going, so I checked the dev blog - is that werewolf wearing a hat for defensive or stylish purposes? ;)

      Also, it mentions the merchant can now sell victims... how does that work? Do they release a new victim onto your property and your monsters do the rest? I also presume that you wouldn't be able to sell them back to the merchant.

    43. Wild Factor Creator on

      Bryy Miller : There is a good chance it's going to slip on May, sorry!
      we are going to send an update on our progress.soon.
      And well done for your DLC :)

    44. Bryy Miller on

      Would the Alpha be out before the 27th?
      Asking for a friend. That friend is me. I am going to be doing a stream to celebrate me being done with the base code for our DLC, and would really like to be able to stream the alpha.

    45. Wild Factor Creator on

      Hello June. Machiavillain is in playable state. Yes! But we still have a lot to do.
      We still have some mechanic to implement we think we should have for the Alpha.

      And we will add new mechanics even after the alpha (and probably until the final release).

    46. June

      Would you say that the alpha is currently playable as it is, or are some mechanics still not yet implemented? Based on the gameplay clips it seems pretty smooth.

    47. Wild Factor Creator on

      Bryan T Starr: There won't be any NDA :) You will be able to do videos if you wish !
      We advise not to do it with firsts Alpha versions. It may take us some iteration to get what your viewers will found fun to watch in a let's play video.

    48. Bryan T Starr on

      Will there be a NDA when we get our hands on the alpha? I would like to post some gameplay to my Viemo account if I think it's stable enough.

    49. Wild Factor Creator on

      Hardwired : merci!
