Hi,

It would be nice if you would add an 'invert-y as'-function add to the game, because I like to play games when i go up with the mouse, the screen go up.

So please can u add it?

Sinceraly!

Hello elecdog,
This game looks great. I just had a question. Now that you are greenlit are you going be offering the game on steam exclusively? or will i still be able to get updates from desura or wherever i buy it? i Have nothing against steam really. But i do not have the internet at my home. So i download games elsewhere and play them at home. Every time i get into a game they go exclusively to steam lol. Thanks for any info,

Jason

No, it'll still be available and updated DRM-free on my site, Desura, IGS store etc.

You'll also get a Steam key if you buy it before it's released on Steam. I'm not sure about after that though.

Can someone post the system minimum requirements to play this game? I have a fairly old (but still decent) laptop I tried playing this on and got absolutely HORRIBLE stuttering, lag, and I couldnt even play. At all. Thats how horrible it was. A real shame too because the game looks very pretty and I would have liked to try it out. I would like to know the system requirements so I know if it was the game (bugs or what not) or if I just needed to upgrade to a new computer to play. (which wont be for awhile but itll be something to look forward to i guess)

Unfortunately, it's still in flux so it's hard to tell the final system requirements. You obviously meet the minimum ones to technically run it.

Things to try:
Set the graphics quality to "low". The game won't look as good, but should run much better graphics-wise.
Press F2 to pause game logic updates. That'll stop water/lava simulation that takes a lot of CPU time. If it removes lag, your CPU is likely too slow. If not, video card is an issue.

I suspect it might have performance issues with integrated Intel graphics, but I can't test that for now.

Update 0.17 is awaiting authorization on Desura now, should be available in a few days.
It has very basic story mode with universe map and saved games, but no real story features yet.

Sorry, but my hard drive still in repair state, so I can't publish anything as I don't have any data, I can just upload the demo installer on the IndieDB page.

No problem, it's not approved by Desura yet anyway.
