Hi everyone, the game has been updated to version with due out tomorrow with some enhancements to user experience. All reported crashes have been fixed and I have had no reports of crashes since 1.06

As I had said before, post release updates would be released based on user feedback and other general enhancements to user experience. The majority of changes in the patches now reflect that.

Here are some screens from the release version:

download works fine for me, tested on different pc's

try this

they provided that as an alternative link if the one didn't work, you know how when a site is counting down and it says your download should start automatically, then click here if it doesn't? That is the link from the click *here* button. :)

Uploading the patch now to a third party sight. Please note this is an incremental patch and will update your Desura version to version 1.06

The patch on Desura is missing files from the install. Sorry wasn't an error on my end.

Patch 1.05 is live ( don't think it patched correctly)

Patch 1.06 has been uploaded. Tomorrow I'll have an alternate download for persons wishing to update outside of Desura.

Hey Cruisin, I am not real sure what happened.. I have noticed the last two times Desura has stated the game was updated I did not get the updates.. When i'm finished playing a game on Desura I always shut the client down. So when I boot the client back up again if there is a update for a game it of course lets me know this.. But these last few patches have not done that for VoD.. Based on the launcher of VoD it says Ver. 0.8 i'm not sure if that's the launcher Ver. or the game itself.

So what I was thinking was maybe there was a issue with the fact that I purchased VoD when it was in the first beta while the price was 5$, if maybe that is why i'm not getting the newest patches for the game. I was excited today knowing I might have a chance to play the full version of the game today. But it doesn't look like my luck is on my side. I did notice that you released the game on Gamersgate today. "congrats on that" But to be honest I have already purchased the game on Desura and didn't really want to end up buying the game twice. I know that it's just a simple issue and that it will be fixed or maybe it's even on my side and i'm doing something wrong.

Hi Purpose, you are not doing anything wrong. I just checked again, the update has not been released. The 'update' you were informed about occured when I changed the description of the game to include the minimum system requirements. But it was not the actual update gone live.

It is still pending Desura authorization. I got an email saying the 'patch team' would be on it. That's all I can report, but again you aren't doing anything wrong.

I am looking to host the patches elsewhere for folks who do not wish to wait on Desura. And I wouldn't expect you to get it on Gamersgate :) That is for people who don't know of or use Desura. Thanks.

Someone rated this a ONE?! You HAVE to be kidding. I think that Desura needs to have a requirement for writing an actual review if someone rates a game so low; we are required to write them when we award a TEN.

Anyhow, I give this very good game an "8" because this isn't the full game. It does crash a bit, but, the potential is there for something very special. The developer has been patching and working on content additions.

Keep up the good work!
