Hello fellow swimmers & good news, Spermination has been updated! Of course, you always want to be shooting with the freshest, so grab the latest either from IndieGameStand or BMT Micro!

v1.4 brings fixes to joystick controls (should hopefully fix looking around on all types of controllers). Oculus Rift updates have also been made -- GUI elements shouldn't overlap incorrectly, among other fixes.

There was a rather large balancing tweak made for v1.0, so if you are running an older version, you really want to update as prices were changed & damage tweaks were made.

Are you a Let's Player who wants to play Spermination? Let me know! Send me an e-mail to phr00t at the usual gmail dot com, and I can hook you up. Here is a video of another fellow gamer enjoying himself:

As always, please vote on Greenlight for this title! Want to play? You can buy it on IndieGameStand!

In the OS X console i see the error: "Exited with code: 1"

Looking forward to playing, hope this can be helped.

Have you tried double-clicking the 3079.jar file in 3089.app/Contents/Resources/Java/3089.jar?

That worked (clicking the 3089.jar file in the location mentioned). So i can play now.

Any idea of what the problem might be - and how i can fix it?

Thanks again.

Java 7 on Macs is a messy situation... I think I'm going to repackage 3089 a bit differently to work around some of the issues (basically, installing Java 7 doesn't update the "java" command in a terminal, but does update the double-clicking method)

Just wanted to mention - if you run Linux, when installing official Oracle\Sun Java is not necessary, game runs perfectly with OpenJDK7 (IcedTea)

When i run it via desura a Error mesage appears saying:

Could not find the main classs: Game.Main. Programm will exit.

I dont know why. Could it be that my Java is not up to date ?

Torrq is right -- you need to make sure all old versions of Java are removed and you have the latest installed.

I had same issue.
I uninstalled all Java (Using Control Panel | Programs & Features or Add/Remove programs).
Then downloaded latest version from Java.com

This is one of the most interesting and addicting games I've played in a while. Great work.

I cannot manage to connect to any server (neither can my friends), have a friend connect to mine, nor have I found much instruction on the matter. I've followed the in game instructions but no luck. Is this a bug for everyone or just me?

Any help would be appreciated. And again, fantastic work.

It may be servers are no longer active... if someone starts a server, plays for a bit & then leaves, the server won't exist anymore to connect to (but it will show up in the list). I may be able to get Tweets deleted when a user disconnects a server, which may be helpful... the trick is to follow @3089game on Twitter and try joining a game right when one starts:

I checked the Twitter, but even if I start a server and have my friend try to join there is no luck. Same thing if he creates a server and I try to join. I have only ever read "Server full or bad address" when attempting to join an existing server or one recently created (with only the host in it)

I was having the same problem but port forwarding fixed it for both me and my friend. I had to log into my router and set port forwarding. Here is a simple step by step for how to do that Wikihow.com
