Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by!

As you may have noticed, Siege of Turtle Enclave has been Greenlit for distribution on Steam, HUZZAH! This glorious event took place on December 30th 2014, I have spent the time between then and now trying to get everything in order for the release; figuring out how to deploy on Steam, fixing a few odds and ends in the game itself, etc... I want to give a huge thanks to everyone who voted for the game and helped it get through the Greenlight process, and I hope that this will be the beginning of a glorious new chapter in the development of the game. The game is set to be released on Friday the 13th (because luck!) and you can find the 'coming soon' page right here:

Follow the game to keep up with developments!

I've also gotten a proper '.com' website for my little studio (about time), which you can find here:
As I release other projects they will all be featured there.

Now onto the 1.1 update, not much is really added, it's more of a polishing and bugfixing update. The main highlights would be that you can recruit new units and manage Heroes on the World Map without having to return the the Enclave, that's a nice convenience. Also battles feel a lot more exciting because I added a bunch of new sound effects that change based on what kind of units are present in the battle, battles sound a lot more intense now. I also discovered that Archimedes couldn't be leveled up properly, that has been fixed also. This update will be released on the 13th, alongside the Steam Release, I know I did other things too, but I have been tinkering on and off with it for several months and forgot (again) to write everything down...So play the game and be surprised at what's fixed! ;)

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the game,
~ Heftig

I don't know why this has such a poor-rating. I am worried now, I liked the slow-pace of the game, it will probably change to be more exciting, which may make it less patient and enjoyable. I will d/l the new version and see.

There isn't too much need to worry about the pace of the game, I am speeding up the default pace of the real time battles a bit but that's something that the player can change on the fly (in the options), and the pace of the campaign I'm not planning on changing except perhaps through more options at the beginning of the game (like the Advanced Start option I just added). Ideally I'd like the game to be enjoyed by players who like both fast and slow games, by providing options for both.

And yeah, I'm kinda surprised at the rating too, especially after the last couple updates. But hey, almost 4 out of 5 isn't a bad rating considering it's not finished yet.

Any plans for Linux?

Very probably, I'm currently running an older version of Unity because I started the project before native Linux exporting was supported and haven't wanted to update for fear of breaking the project and causing delays in the development. After the Release of version 1.0 I'll update Unity and then try to get a stable Linux build out for testing. If the tests are successful I'll add Linux as a supported OS.

I know you said that you were leaving how aggressive the enemies are with the settings turned down until beta (see my previous post on page 3 or 4) but I just want to ask did this get balanced in this update or are you still waiting to put the game into beta?

I will admit I have not played it since my last mail as it really did my head in being attacked all the time with the aggressive settings set low but will give it another go to see how it plays now. I read through the update and I praise you on the amount of work you put into it since the last update :)

I have just played a couple of hours, got to day 80 on low aggression and I am having to chase them to fight instead of them hitting me :) I shall try it on medium tomorrow.

When I got to day 79 I had to save, quit then restart as I could not press to get to the world map or end day, I was stuck in the village. It worked fine after I restarted it though and lost no save data.

Loving the new sound effects especially of the thunder and the rain looks much better too. Well done with this, looking forward to more to see once beta comes into play :)

Awesome, and thanks! I really nerfed the aggro on low and slightly nerfed it on standard, but the entire way the enemy handles troops is being re-written (I actually started laying the groundwork for that today) and the new system will make a lot more sense (on a strategic level) and be easier to balance/scale to suit the players' desired experience.

The weather is much better, the old ones were driving me crazy (I must have rushed them in when I was busy with something else) so I figured I could just tweak them a bit to get a much better effect. Glad I was right!

As for the bug report; that sounds odd, did the GUI appear and simply not respond?

Also, for future bugs: If you're feeling a bit adventurous, you can find the file called 'output_log.txt' and copy/paste all the text inside it into a new thread in the Bug Forums. The output_log.txt is inside the 'SiegeOfTurtleEnclave_Data' folder that is inside the main game folder which should be located in the install directory (which is probably inside Desura's folder), this log file gets reset every time you launch the game so you would have to be copy and paste the text right after shutting down the game after the bug happened, or the next time you launched the game the log would only show info from your latest session.

Sorry for the wall of text! But thanks for the feedback and I can't wait to dazzle everyone with all the cool additions that I have planned for Beta! :D

Sorry, I am not very technical and try to avoid opening files in case I break them somehow.

Everything was there, the interface and all the buttons and everything else, I could click on anything and it worked except the world map or end day button. They were there but not working. It's only happened once though and as I say after I saved it and quit and restarted my save file from that point was intact, nothing lost, and everything was working again :)

No problem :) thanks for what you are able to tell me. It really is very helpful.

It's probably some AI bug causing the world map not to clean itself up properly, leading to problems in the town view. Hopefully I'll squash it before the next update!
