Downloading once I get home... Looks kinda cool.... btw to everybody else who keeps talking about it being a bad copy of minecraft or terraria, Why don't you develop a game and then give it away for free only to have someone tell you it sucks. +1 for linux (the only real dev environment!! lol) support!!!

The game looks very promising! Keep going, devs!

Unfortunately, I've experienced many small bugs.
Why the "Help" button in the main menu opens a browser? Why not just show a small cheat sheet inside the game?
Why "Jump" button is assigned to Space? If A and D are for "walk left/right", it is better to use W for jumping.
"Donate" button in HUD is not very nice, IMO. This button in the main menu is enough.
Why player can attack when the backpack is opened? Also, why use Esc for backpack opening instead of closer key for the hand (for example, Tab)?
And, I have experienced lags when gathering resources. Everything just freeze for about 1-2 seconds.

I hope you'll consider my suggestions :)

Thanks! We've submitted the builds to Desura, just waiting for them to approve and it'll be live! (not sure how long it takes - this is our first time releasing on Desura)

You also could submit it to the HIB(Humble Indie Bundle) and have them use it as like a free bonus for the current bundle or something like that...
