Thanks for writing this kind of behind the scenes stuff. I'm dumb as a stump but fascinated with how smart you guys/girls are and good info for gamers who have no idea what goes into making a game. Now get this thing kickstarted!!

Such an amazingly well done game so far. Everyone has cool ideas, but not everyone can turn those ideas into a fun game. I really, really want to preorder, kickstart, early access, give you some money for this game. Looks like Rawbots (minus the complexity of visual programming) plus open world exploration and mining plus vehicle sim and combat in a nice fun package (oh and some Captain Forever). This has just become my #1 game to look forward to.

Nice :) The 360 and PS3 controllers have 2 joysticks already (as well as many 3rd party gamepads). Why not just let your controls use those? I would only advise to have solid controls. Controls make or break a game. If they don't feel right to you, they won't feel right to us the gamers.

Just played a little bit. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE me some hoverboards!! Nice job as usual Phr00t. It's great looking around while moving in whatever direction the board is moving and changing direction with the hook or steering - Perfect.

I love great controls in games. Minecraft has that same quality of making ordinarily difficult tasks (in other games) super easy because of great controls. If you have to stop and think about what buttons to press then you lose the immersion. Gameplay and great controls > graphics all day, every day.

Looks great! The devs of Project Zomboid lost a bunch of their work when they had 2 laptops stolen early in development. BACK UP every time! (please, because this looks so great).

I need to check myself for online backup for documents in case of a hard drive failure. I picked up an external 750 GB drive for around $60 last Christmas just to back up steam games to avoid 2 months of downloading if one of our computers fails.

Really looking forward to this game/sim.

I like the graphic touches a lot. Just having slight indentations on the buildings instead of completely flat walls adds a lot. I have fun just running around in these open world games looking around.

I haven't had much time to play and usually get killed early, but rolling along on the quests now. Appreciate all the work you put into these games.

Looking fantastic - Really like the camera in the truck. Maybe you can have a user camera that can be placed anywhere - on the walking machines, on top of bridges, etc.

PC really needs a great sim like this.

Edit - Although, looking at other pics maybe you already have that :/

I bought this from devs website ages ago. Great game that you should definitely buy. One thing that bothered me was the washed out color look in the maps. It was kinda hard to see what was going on, although I think I am in the minority on that opinion :/

This map fixes that. The graphics are bright and clean and don't look washed out. This is a true joy to play with this winter map.

If you don't own this game - BUY IT NOW!!!

I was running the 1.25 version great. The new version gives me this error when starting the game -

"The application or DLL D:\Games\Masterspace\MSVCP100.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."

I renamed it just to see if I could start the game and it gave me the same error but with "MSVCR100.dll." After renaming that file I was able to start the game but terrain is black.

This is on Win XP 32 bit. I have a Win 7 computer I will try tomorrow and see if it runs. This was using this download on indiedb. I looked at the files in the paid version online on your website but they say 1.3 preview and not sure if those are the final 1.3 files.

Great looking game, best looking mahjong game I have ever seen.

The only thing I would change is the camera. I like that you can move it around with the right mouse, but when selecting tiles I think it should remain fixed and this would be perfect. It's a little nauseating to have it constantly moving as you pick tiles.

I would have definitely paid for this game.

Sorry, didn't add as a friend. I only game an hour here and there and usually disappoint when someone invites me to a game. I'm just going to keep this account friend free so I can escape Steam once in a while and get my indie game fix.

And yeah, Project Zomboid is great, hoping for that update soon. You should try out "Kerbal Space Program." The version on their website is the current demo. The next version will be for paid accounts, but for now everyone is on the same version. Only $7.00 to buy the full version and they have tons of stuff planned down the road.

Tried your demo, ugggh. I have only one word to describe this game - FANTASTIC!!!

The "ugggh" was because now I have another game to buy on payday. I never thought a 2D portal game would work. Not only did you prove it would work, but it works exceptionally well. I almost skipped this one (I thought this was just another 2D platformer) until I saw the demo link on indiegames.com and it was too easy not to try it. Excellent game.

For other people like me too lazy to look for the demo link - Smudgedcat.com

Gonna buy this game after trying the demo from your website. Payday cannot come soon enough.

As far as the similarity to Dwarf Fortress - I don't care. As a matter of fact I am very happy that someone put real graphics to the awesomeness that is Dwarf Fortress. Also, it is much easier to play with mouse controls. Maybe this will get a whole lot more people interested in this type of game and some of those will give Dwarf Fortress a try that otherwise would have ignored it. Dwarf Fortress will always be king. These games just make it more accessible to gamers. It can be win-win for all of these games.

Thank you for making this game.

Looks nice. Can't wait for the toggle smooth, blocky. Maybe add a very dim highlight to what ground you are going to affect when digging like minecraft (or even less noticeable) when using the smooth terrain would help, but not overdone like the minecraft clones.

Excellent game and the spaceships and traveling to other planets really makes it fun.

I really like how the character walks towards the mouse when pressing forward. The only thing I would change is item selection. Simple is best. Maybe use shift + left click to select one item at a time and have it default to picking all blocks by just left clicking and left click to drop it in your quick select bar because most people will want to grab all their dirt blocks or torches at one time and drop them in their quick select. Controls should be second nature like breathing - you don't have to think about it.

Have to mention Minecraft here - It is so simple to play that my friend's twin 6-year-olds can play. The complexity comes from the gameplay and crafting as you learn new recipies, so it works for the very young all the way to adults and everyone has fun. Terraria is probably pushing the limits of more complex controls for younger kids to be able to play and have fun. Good second step up from minecraft. More streamlined controls allows the gamer to think about the game and forget about what keys or which mouse button to use.

I love any games with breakable blocks, crafting and creatures. I'm hoping this turns into a winner for the devs and the gamers.

Only got to play a little bit so far, but this game looks great and handles awesome. Little things like hitting back (down arrow) to put yourself exactly opposite your direction of travel to slow down and stop without having to wiggle back and forth trying to figure out which way to thrust is very helpful. I feel guilty getting this game for free considering the hours I am going to be playing it.
