      When do you suppose the game will be complete?

      Kyle Update: Our awesome QA guy, Richard, found some critical issues with the build before the holiday. Sorry it hasn't gone out yet! They're issues that would have been a MajorDeal(TM) for you guys, but thankfully they don't look like a big deal on my end. I'm back at work tomorrow and should have a build out for everyone shortly after that. Sorry if I'm spamming the comments section here, I just want to keep you all up to date on how things are going.

      Hurray \o/

      Kyle: Hello again folks! I've run through the latest build myself, but we're going to hold off on uploading it to humble until Josh and one of our other developers can do a run through as well. It should be up this weekend, Monday at the latest I'd imagine. Things looked good with my testing so I don't foresee any big hiccups. I'll keep you posted.

    5. Sortasoft LLC Creator on December 14

      Quick update from our programmer, Kyle: Hi guys! Since the project is now largely waiting on me to finish up my work, I figured it was appropriate to give you a direct update on how things are coming. The good news is that the design / content is finally Done(TM), with only a small handful of fixes left for Josh and Carlos on that side of things. My plate has also gotten considerably smaller in the last few months, and I'm pretty excited to share the next build with everyone. Among the myriad of bug fixes and general improvements to the game I've made some big steps on the performance side. This build will have actual quality levels with a much larger impact on performance than the previous options available from the launcher. I'll be sending an internal build around at the end of today for testing within our small group and I hope to make that build available to everyone on Friday through Humble. I'll make sure we post another comment when that happens. I'll try and personally pop into the comments here with more frequent, small updates on how things are progressing.

      Well the testing seems to take quite a while ... no news since ... wow 2 months with no time to write a single line.

      Since supporting this project I have:
      Met, dated, proposed to, and married my wife.
      Had a daughter.
      Moved.Twice.
      Started two new jobs.
      Started a company.

      I don't have time to play it anymore :(

      Shinji: we're testing a new release as we speak

      Thank you for that small update ;)
      I'll be waiting for the big one next month !

    11. Sortasoft LLC Creator on May 3, 2016

      Hi Baalim, we have an update coming out very soon. It's not that we don't want to keep you in the loop, but every update takes up a lot of time that would otherwise go toward finishing the game. So we've decided it's best to update about once a month.

    12. Missing avatar

      baalim on May 3, 2016

      Still no news ?
      I don't really care to wait a little longer but I do think backers should be kept in the loop ;)

      I wonder if this game is gonna be released one day..

    14. Rees Maxwell on January 27, 2016

      Lewis and Clark spent two years, four months and ten days exploring this country on foot (and canoe). Amazing this campaign has exceeded theirs in time. Three years on...I hope we get to play it this year!

    15. Britta Carlson on December 23, 2015

      Thanks so much for the reply--I do really look forward to seeing the finished product=]

    16. Sortasoft LLC Creator on December 19, 2015

      Britta, it's obviously taken us a lot longer than we anticipated, but that's often the case with game development. Of course we want to release it as soon as we can but we want to make sure the game is the best is can be. I'm reluctant to give any dates because we've always been so far off with them, but I will say that we are getting very close! Thank you all for your patience.

    17. Britta Carlson on December 19, 2015

      So really now... What's the expected release date? I was planning on giving this to my dad years ago at this point... I don't get it

      Fantastic ! I'll wait for it then.

    19. Sortasoft LLC Creator on December 14, 2015

      Baalim, we'll be posting an update very soon about the polishing we've been doing to prep the game for release.

      So any news while we're slowly approaching christmas ?

    21. Sortasoft LLC Creator on November 8, 2015

      @light487: That's exactly our plan! We will release the game to our backers, and incorporate feedback from all of you as we continue to polish and optimize the game before a general release.

    22. light487 - Kickstarter Junkie on November 8, 2015

      Still looking forward to this! :) Hopefully by Christmas we'll have a more general release for the rest of the backers. Hopefully you guys will do a release to backers before sales begin on Steam or other platform.. even if it's only a week or two earlier. Thanks for all your hard work!

      I had almost forgotten about this game, I really can't wait to give it a go.

    24. Sortasoft LLC Creator on September 12, 2015

      Adam, take your time. Were really only in a hurry for the physical rewards since we need to manufacture them.

      I've pledged at the scholarship tier, and I have a specific institution in mind, but I need to make sure they are interested in the software (feel it is appropriate for their visitors, etc) before I send it to them. I won't find be able to speak with them until Monday, but I just got an email that said this was my final chance to respond to the survey. How much time do I have left before the survey closes?

    26. Sortasoft LLC Creator on June 30, 2015

      Seth: Yes, although before we start selling it on Steam we will send you a DRM-free version through the Humble store. We plan to spend a little time polishing it up and taking in more feedback from our backers between our Kickstarter release and when we make it available to the general public.

      Will Meriwether be released on Steam and if so will my $19 tier get me a key?

    28. Sortasoft LLC Creator on June 27, 2015

      Light: sure thing, we will do one very soon. We've been waiting until the next Beta build is ready (which it basically is at this point.)

    29. light487 - Kickstarter Junkie on June 26, 2015

      Would really like a Backers Update to be sent out with that information on beta and stuff that's happening etc. It's been a few months since a proper update. Thanks.

    30. Sortasoft LLC Creator on June 16, 2015

      Ben, we're going to release one more build to Beta-level backers any day now. Then, the next release will be to all the backers, starting with small set of levels, which will allow us to react quickly to feedback, and then release a few more levels each time. We're just as excited to get a build to you!

    31. Ben Mangefrida on June 15, 2015

      Hey guys, any word on when the beta will be released to all the backers? really looking forward to sinking my teeth into some content!

    32. thecaseace on March 21, 2015

      Yeah I'm not rushing. Quality > Speed in almost all cases. Just hadn't seen anything for a while and got curious. Thanks!

    33. Sortasoft LLC Creator on March 20, 2015

      thecaseace: Beta version 2 is just about ready. We'll be sending it out any time now with a full update as well! We keep getting delayed a little bit longer because there are some specific things we want to test in this build so we're making sure those are ready for prime time.

    34. thecaseace on March 19, 2015

      Hi Sortasoft people. Hope you're well and all that.
      Update pls? What's going on in the digital frontier of Lewis & Clark? Is there a release date?
      Cheers dears.

      Cheers.
      Good luck with the boring bug squashing!

    36. Sortasoft LLC Creator on December 3, 2014

      Britta: we don't have an exact release date yet, but the end is finally in sight. It won't be ready before Christmas though, sorry!

      CurriedCat: I'm working on a new update right now, so keep your eyes open for it. In general, we are tying up loose ends, polishing the game, and working on minor technical issues that weren't enough bang for the buck up until this point. We also just updated to the latest version of Unity and had to resolve some issues with that. Most of this is the unexciting part which is why our updates have been a little slower, but it has to get done.

      Any new updates on a release date? I think this would be really great to give my dad for Christmas=]

      Thank you. I did miss the update. ;)

    40. Sortasoft LLC Creator on October 30, 2014

      Baalim: we sent an update earlier this month. I know some backers aren't receiving the updates, but you can read them in the updates tab. Starting Monday we are going to slowly start rolling out early builds to our Beta backers, starting with the upper tiers. I don't have a good estimate for final release yet though.

      baalim on October 30, 2014

      It's been a while since the last update. Any new estimation about a release date ?

      hm, you said the exact same thing one year ago to D.M.."D.M., we're running a little bit past schedule, but not too bad. Our plan right now is to have Beta in November, and be finished with the game at the very beginning of 2014."

      I wouldn't make any plan or announcement, if i were you. Your estimation seems to be way off :p

    44. PegasusOrgans-AGL 589 on August 12, 2014

      No problem! Wish you all the best, can't wait!

    45. Sortasoft LLC Creator on July 31, 2014

      Pegasus, we're planning to release this fall to y'all, but will probably continue polishing the game before we start selling it to the public. Thanks to you and everybody for your patience!

    46. PegasusOrgans-AGL 589 on July 31, 2014

      You're lucky you don't have the backers from "War for the Overworld" as they keep complaining about no concrete release date. BTW, what is the rough estimate for Meriwether?
