Alpha 1.2.3 has been authorized by Desura, they also fixed issues on mac pcs. And i must say this update will fix what everyone has been complaining about and add something that will add way more realism to the game. Since the game was launched everyone dislikes the fact that they dont know how to use something they paid for (Captain obvious to the rescue), so in update 1.2.3 an initial tutorial has been added so players can learn the basic controls of the game, to complete the tutorial just press the keys the tutorial tells you to press. A better fog with more density and a more realistic feel has been added, giving the envirioment of the game a more dramatic feel. And to me the most important feature you will find in 1.2.3 is hypothermia, hypothermia is a new stat that has to be avobe zero or else you will die, to fill hypothermia just create a fireplace while in build mode, and then get close to that fire, you will see the stat quickly rise. The game was made a little easier by nerfing the gorillas, and now they wont spawn right away next to you, so you will have time to get ready when they do.
in update 1.3 everything will be about optimizing the game, a gradual render system wil be added increasing the fps by almost the double
