The grip stamina limits issue was a bug that affected some systems than run the game with lower frame rates, it has been fixed in the new 0.1.1 build that was submitted to Steam Early Access in the last hour. We are looking at solutions for custom input support (we had to remove the previous input framework as it only supported 4 players and was the cause of the input mapping issues we had with the 0.0.3 Windows build).

We have a number of prototype stages in development currently and will prioritise level content now the character has been rebuilt and is mostly functioning as expected (we will continue making incremental modifications to the character throughout Early Access).

The limited grip time in the 0.1.0 build was a bug that affected some systems, it has been fixed together with a few other minor issues in the 0.1.1 build which was submitted to Steam in the last hour.

We want to support online modes but plan to sell Gang Beasts as a local multiplayer game on Steam as we can't commit to adding online game modes until we have a working, stable, and tested implementation (we are working with the Multiplay to identify and test networking schemes for an online mode but this won't be a priority until later this year.)

It is important to state that we can't add support for online game modes unless we successfully implement a networking scheme that makes the online gameplay close or approximate to playing offline (this is why need to take specialist support on potential networking schemes and implementations).

Not sure what the "booster for keyboard" is, but to play with keyboard in the 0.0.1 - 0.0.3 pre-alpha builds you need to manually map the keys you want to use with the custom input window that is opened when you press the "Tab" key in game.

If you are using Windows 0.0.3 build and are not able to set the inputs, quit the game and right-click the 'Gang Beasts.exe' file and select the "Run as Administrator" command (to give the game permission to modify the input preferences).

We are using a third party input framework called InControl for the Gang Beasts Early Access releases, InControl has support for 8+ concurrent input devices and has device profiles for a large number of popular game controllers e.g. Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3, Playstation 4 etc. see the listing at Gallantgames.com for a full list of currently supported devices).

InControl was used for the first pre-alpha build (the 0.0.0 build) but was replace with a similar framework (cInput) to add custom input (as InControl doesn't currently have support for custom inputs), we have reverted back to InControl as cInput only supports four concurrent players.

I don't think it is an issue. The moderators will identify that it was an accident.

The Gang Beasts pre-builds (expect build 0.0.0) have support for mouse, keyboard, and game controllers, to set the inputs press the 'Tab' key in game. If you are using the Windows 0.0.3 build and are unable to set the inputs, quit the game and right-click the 'Gang Beasts.exe' file and select the "Run as Administrator" command (to give the game permission to modify the input preferences).

Yes, it is a .zip file (the IndieDB file upload tool expects games to be uploaded as a single file), to play the game you have to fully extract (unzip) the .zip file using an archive utility (see En.wikipedia.org) or the Windows File Explorer (see Windows.microsoft.com for instructions how to unzip files on Windows 7 and Windows.microsoft.com for instructions how to unzip files on Windows 8).

Extracting the .zip should give you a file named "Gang Beasts.exe" and a folder named "Gang Beasts_Data", if the file and folder are in the same location i.e. inside a specific folder or on the Windows Desktop you can run the game by double-clicking the "Gang Beasts.exe" file.

This could be caused by the zip archive failing to extract correctly (we have seen this happen with WinRAR), I suggest unzipping with a different archive utility if you are using WinRAR.

To use the Windows File Explorer to unzip the file on Windows 7 see the instructions at Windows.microsoft.com

For instructions on unzipping the file with the Windows File Explorer on Windows 8 see the instructions at Windows.microsoft.com

For reference extracting the .zip file should give you a file named "Gang Beasts.exe" and a folder named "Gang Beasts_Data", if the file and folder are in the same location i.e. inside a specific folder or on the Windows Desktop you can run the game by double-clicking the "Gang Beasts.exe" file.

There are no default keyboard controls in the pre-alpha builds, if you are using the 0.0.3 Windows build and are unable to set the inputs, quit the game and right-click the 'Gang Beasts.exe' file and select the "Run as Administrator" command (to give the game permission to modify the input preferences).

If you are not able to modify the inputs after running as an administrator the fastest solution is to download the 0.0.2 build and map the inputs using that build (as the 0.0.3 build will use the same input preferences).

The full game will be a series of arenas (like the test stages from the pre-alpha builds) connected by shorter non-arena sections e.g. short climbing sequences, crossing roads, leaping across gaps between buildings etc.) but it won't be open world, we are currently prioritising the development of new arena stages and will shift to prioritising work on the connecting sections more at later stage.

You will be able to fight as characters with numerous body shapes and sizes including bosses in the full games. We will be adding examples of these types of game modes in the coming Early Access alpha builds.

The pre-alpha builds on IndieDB are free, the next build will be the first full alpha and will be sold through Steam Early Access to fund the development of the full game (the Early Access price will be discounted for the first week).

We don't currently plan to add blood to the game, we expect to selectively add other partical effects to the characters; we want to make the windscreen / windshield glass (and other glass in vehicles) breakable on collision (if the collision force is sufficient).

There is an issue with some systems that have integrated graphics that fails to load the scene as expected, we have spoken with some of the Unity developers and are collating information re: the GPU's that the issue occurs with (to send to them), if you can send you system specifications I can include them in the list.

For reference a number of people that had the same issue on their systems were able to escape the issue by modifying the graphics and / or resolution settings.

The current pre-alpha builds should support most game controllers (Xbox 360, PS3 / PS4 and generic models) but the face button need to be remapped for most controllers; the Early Access releases will have support the controllers listed at Gallantgames.com

To game executable expects the "Gang Beasts_Data" folder to be at the same level in the folder hierarchy as itself i.e. you need both the "Gang Beasts.exe" file and the "Gang Beasts_Data" folder to be in the same folder (or on the desktop) for the game to run.

In the pre-alpha builds you need to grab with one or both hands and press the "Action" key to lift (for reference the "Action" button has been combined with the "Taunt / Gesture" button in the next build).

If you hold "lift" while grabbing you will raise your arms to an elevated position, if you press "lift" momentarily while grabbing and release the "grab" at or close to the apex of the lift you can fling objects and enemies.

We're are putting AI in more stages but it will take time to build an AI that is capable across all of the current stages and the various others stages we are making, or have planned (as they need to push, pull, jump, dive, duck, crawl, drag, throw, punch, kick, lift, and elbow etc.).
