A free-roaming squad based RPG. Focusing on open-ended gameplay features rather than a linear story. Be a trader, a thief, a rebel, a mercenary, a business owner, a doctor, a bandit... the list goes on. Aid or oppose the various factions in the world while striving for the strength and wealth necessary to simply survive in the harsh desert. Purchase and upgrade your own buildings to use as safe fortified havens when things go bad, or use them to start up a business. Train your men up from puny victims to master warriors. Carry your wounded squad mates to safety and get them all home alive.

The first building update is out! You can use building materials to build structures in the game, anything from a small shack to a large outpost. Inside you can build beds to rest in, various storage containers for your extra gear, and training dummies to train up your rookies in basic combat.

That's just the start of course, still to come is mining, crafting, research, farming and shop-running. I'm also going to add a system where you can hire extra workers to help you out, and I need to start on the faction AI a bit so that the other factions start raiding and extorting player outposts.

Oooh so much to do, so much to do.

I also have a freelance artist working for me now, thanks to the money from the Indiegogo campaign and a generous donation from Cross77. But I'll go into that in detail in my next update.

0.26.3

This is the first building update. Its only the start, future updates will be adding to it.
Character names and NPCs from the indiegogo campaign are not in yet, but the credits are done. If your name is missing from the credits, you need to email me.

FEATURES
-BUILDING: Get enough building materials and you can build your own structures outside of towns.
-If you own a building, you can now lock the doors (using the right-click menu). Enemies will be forced to bash their way in.
-You can build various item storage containers indoors.
-Healing rate is halved, but is 5x faster if resting in a bed. If unbandaged, resting in a bed will prevent the wounds from getting worse.
-You can carry an unconcious character and put them in a bed to recover.
-You can use training dummies to improve your attack skills
-Shopkeepers refresh their inventory every 20 minutes

BUG FIXES
-Fixed tooltip info on weapons and armour being cut off

Could be your firewall. Otherwise some people have had an error updating and said it was fixed when they re-installed.

Okay so I had a look at my firewall and thats not the problem. Then I uninstalled it and then re-intalled it but that didnt work either. Still on 0.25.5. Am I uninstalling it wrong or something? Beause whenever i re-install it it asks me if I want to buy the game again? Instead I just click "use version installed on this computer" but that doesnt seem right...

Hi! I've been playing the game for a week now, have built a powerful squad and rule in the deserts! Can't wait for the future updates to have even more options to play. One issue though: when i built my outpost and tried to build furniture inside there seems to be a bug, the materials are consumed and the character is occupied with building for a while but nothing gets created, anyone had a similar issue?
