I'm currently developing "Homestead: Settle and Survive", an indie 2D sandbox game which focuses around wilderness survival and village creation. I program in C++, but am experienced in Java and numerous other languages. My favorite libraries include SFML and libnoise.

I don't want thousands of testers yet. I want a controlled group, so I wanted people to register at the forums first. I made it a public link because it's too hard to manage otherwise. Once I actually start accepting pre-orders, then I'll care.

1) Yes, I know. It was a suggestion

2) "There was no point in having your own forums" - I market to other people outside IndieDB. I won't evolve my life around one promotion tool.

3) As I said on the forums, it's only a Windows download at the moment (unless you run on Wine). It says that on the forums.

4) I refuse to revolve around IndieDB. 3/4 of my community comes from elsewhere. Believe it or not, I don't just use one promotional website.

5) It's in early alpha and I can't bugtrack if people don't register on the forums. Later, I'll start actually caring, but since it's ALPHA, I don't care.

Yeah, it was more of a suggestion than a demand.

Thanks :)

I would do that if I had an auto-updater. I've been meaning to add one for a while. Once I do, and once I'm in Beta, I'll consider it.

I keep all my downloads in one place on my forums. Since I update so much, it would be a nightmare to fill out multiple download forms every time I make an update (which can happen multiple times each day). It also allows me to track bugs easier. It's in a VERY early alpha stage at the moment, so this is a requirement.

Oh, and btw, I could care less about the amount of people playing. I just want to keep my fans happy.

I'm reworking the combat system a bit. I don't like it being "too simple", but too complex confuses people and takes away from the base elements of the game IMO.

Thanks :)

Ok, you can now register on the Colonies.boards.net site. It's a temporary forum. Locate the thread about beta/alpha sign ups in the announcements section ;)

Thanks for the comment! We'll be working on more protection/defense systems next because everyone is too vulnerable at the moment.

There's already an alpha version but it's just closed for our dev team atm. Until I can get a solid server host, I can't really post a public link ;)

So far there isn't any lag ;)

I'll be sure to keep testing for lag and optimizing as I go.

There already is a lot of variation of vegetation, but I'll extend it later in the different biomes I'll add.

Yeah, pet NPCs and your own defenses will be the key to survival. Don't ever go to sleep/log out in public places ;)

I don't think sharks will be viable in rivers, but I will add traps later on which will hurt enemies. Also, I'll probably add ravenous dogs that will attack anybody nearby (except the owner of course...)
