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.

That's exactly what we're going for! It's soothing and gentle when you want it to be, has lots of raw creativity, and has the ability to be frighteningly adventurous and intense when wars break out between villages.

Yeah, it will be back up in 1 minute (we're transitioning hosts). There is currently not a way to test besides applying for a tester's account. A Linux build will be available eventually, but not at the moment (however, it works fine on Wine as a temporary solution).

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.

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.

Kinda both. I consider it in "alpha" at the moment, but we're churning out new features and fixes so often that it would be hard to have a solid testing session for longer than a day.

There's a hunger bar as you've probably seen (in the upper left hand corner). Once it's full, you can't eat any more. If you happen to eat something that's really filling (ex. meat) while your bar is nearly full, you'll lose some health.

It essentially discourages and stops people from eating too much and abusing the stat system.

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.

Pretty far. You can literally do anything you want with barely any restrictions.

However, there is an "invention" system I'm about to implement which will limit your construction to only stuff which you've invented already, but that's about it. Everything else is up to you.

Those who successfully help with Alpha will get Steam keys once it's released. "Successfully" means that the tester is a valuable asset and actually tests stuff (note: testing is very different from playing).

I also plan on having some sort of affiliate program for those who make successful let's plays and youtube videos about my game.

With that being said, I'm going to be creating the forums. On there, you'll be able to sign up for alpha and possibly help test Colonies if you are selected.
