The long-awaited RC1 (first release candidate) build of AdvertCity is ready. Please download it, try it out, and give us your feedback.

This is a major milestone. If there are no serious problems found with this release, this will be the last beta version, and our next release will be the final public release.  So now it's up to you - please help us find any remaining bugs and adjust the gameplay balance!

Download at http://voxelstorm.itch.io/advertcity

If you have lost your beta key, don't worry - just contact us on our kickstarter (so we can confirm who you are) and we'll send you a message back with your key right away.

Please give us your feedback on our Beta Tester forum: http://voxelstorm.com/advertcity/forum/index.php/topic,20.0.html You should all have an account for this forum; if you did not sign up when the original keys were sent,

Finally, if you were not able to back the Beta Tester tier during our kickstarter but want to get in on this last stage of our beta tests and have your say, it's not too late!  We are currently offering AdvertCity discounted 25% from full price at http://voxelstorm.itch.io/advertcity, which will go up to the full £20 once the beta test is over and our release is ready.  If you've purchased from itch.io since the beta tests began, just message us on kickstarter with your itch.io account name, and we'll send you an access key for the private beta tester forum.

We're looking forward to hearing your feedback!

      A quick note to anyone who downloaded the Windows version from itch.io last night - please download the latest today and make sure it is version 8.6 you're running! We had a minor blip with the hosting site still holding on to an old version, which should be resolved now.
