nope sadly still randomly crashes... might be because it is unstable in windowed mode?

There have been reported issues in playing in windowed mode due to the way the engine handles the resolution if your window mode was the same as your desktop. It cuts off 2 pixels, which confuses the system. best played at full screen, or a lower rez than the desktop if windowed.

That's not the experience I got when I played this game.

It's never crashed for me. I've been able to get several things crafted and I've progressed through a few parts of the game.

I actually quite enjoy this game, it's like Terraria but with nice graphics. Needs a friendlier UI, but otherwise the engine and the games foundation is great. Also needs story and more variety, but I think those things will come with more development.
