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 new weapon crafting update is out now, here's the change list:

0.42.0 "Crafting"

  • -Weapon Crafting. Awesome.
  • -Ore mining.
  • -Stone/Ore mining upgrades, automated mines.
  • -Weapon types have been refangled around.
  • -Certain weapon types now give bonuses or penalties to attack/defence skills.
  • -New game start-off: "The Holy Sword".
  • -Characters will let you know if they don't have any inventory space to collect some goods, and all the storages are full
  • -When a character is working at something, the info window will show you which skill is being used, and the effect it has on his work output.

BUGFIXES

  • -Added extra Screen resolution option to the in-game options menu, because lots of people missed the one at startup.
  • -Fixed the bug where if you got negative money, you couldn't get paid for selling items
  • -Fixed crash when pressing the Rescue button

As usual, the next few updates will be smaller, bug-fixing type patches. Then I will probably go on to fix the wall building, and add some automate-able character AI jobs for your bases.

Yay :D I'm actually not playing Kenshi all the time now, waiting for a more stable build so my opinion of it isn't spoiled. I absolutely love this game!

your opinion can be spoiled of a game in alpha?
i own and play like 15-20 alpha's and all i see is the good to come :)

More than once I've played a game in its Alpha state and a single game breaking bug ruins my entire opinion of it. It's not something I can help.

This happens to me with version 1/complete Indie games but I understand your concern, it was one of the few things that made me fear Alpha games and Indie developers a few years ago :)

I personally often buy alpha indie games, but then wait to play them till they're in a more finished state.
Not necessarily because I won't have fun while playing the alpha, but because I'm afraid I'll get bored of the game before it comes out and won't return to it when it's done.

The result? I bought Kenshi the day it became available for pre-order, but haven't played it.

I would play it but I've got no idea how to start it. Granted the last time I played it was 0.2.something so I guess it's maybe a little more clear on the instructions in the begining.

Hey there!,
i love the new update! got my mood all set for the rest for the game.

Only some minor bugs:
- Weapons dissapear after crafting (in the "output" space of the crafting bench.)
- Cant place the semi-automated Stone Mine anywhere in the whole map.( keep getting error of that the building needs more leveltation.)
- No Steel-Bars production available yet ( this is what makes the crafting buggy i think, since u use raw iron "automaticly" instead of steel - bars)
