We're glad you are enjoying it ;)
It looks like sound is pretty important to you (specifically speaking, it seems to equate to 90% of the value of a game you play). With that in mind, we do apologize for the considerable inconvenience.
That said, we're still in Beta, still working out kinks, and still doing what we can to resolve all of the issues we can. Keeping sound in for OpenJDK users (right now) was causing the game to crash. This was not something we could get resolved before the deadline we had for this latest update, so we simply disabled it for now. This allowed those using OpenJDK, such as yourself, to at least experience the game, which we felt was the most important thing (for most people anyway).
Again, sorry for the inconvenience. We'll see what we can do about this issue in the near-ish future ;)
Yea sorry, you will need to start a new game if you update the game. We had some major changes to the game (including gaining XP and leveling among many others) so, it couldn't really be helped. It's just one of those things that goes along with playing during a Beta I guess. We tried to work it so that starting over was not necessary, but sadly we couldn't make it happen :(
Glad you like it!
Thanks! Glad to hear you are enjoying it ;)
A Wood block is made from 10 Wood which you can gather from the surface. With that said, today's update we are releasing will start you with a number of materials, including 1 Wood Block and 5 Wood (among other things)!
Yea, thanks a lot for that feedback, we really appreciate it! The new release should be coming shortly (within the hour on our website). Desura will need to review the new release before it is available so there will be some delay here of course ;)
Looking forward to the review! I will be doing some quick tutorial videos in the near future. We'll likely work something into the game for that purpose, but it might not be for a bit so I'm hoping the videos can help some in the meantime ;)
We know of a few things that can cause this (though, yours might not be among them) and will be releasing a big update this weekend to resolve them (as well as other bugs). The update will also have some new features and other updates! Anyway, sorry for your troubles, but come back next week perhaps and let us know if the update helped!
Thanks, glad you are enjoying it! If you checkout the update we have coming this weekend, stop back by and let us know what you think ;)
Wow, thanks for the kind words, we appreciate that you are enjoying the game (and shared that fact with us). We have a big update coming (this weekend) to address bugs AND add new features, so stay tuned!
Thanks for giving it a whirl, we appreciate it! Sorry to hear about the computer problems though - I hope it's nothing serious and you can get back to the game!
Hey everyone, we will be releasing a large update to the game in one week (Dec 30-31st or so). A number of bug fixes will be included, plus new content and features - Stay tuned!
Steam denied us when we submitted there. Granted, that was back during Alpha. We have not yet decided whether or not to re-submit it, but if we did, we would wait until the full release of the game (as opposed to it being in Beta as it is now) ;)
We'll have a big update at the end of the month (at some point during the last weekend of this month)
Awesome, we enjoy the process including community interaction! As for hit detection issues (or for that matter, any issues) we have a Bug Reporting section on our forums if you are interested in posting this or anything else there - we appreciate it! Link is here (and goes right to the forum, despite it only showing the .com) -> Epicinventor.com
Thanks for the feedback, it's much appreciated! A number of the things you mentioned will be addressed in the next update or so ;)
You would be doing us a HUGE favor if you could head over to our forums and let us know more about this in our "Report Bugs" section linked to here -> Epicinventor.com Thanks!
We try! Hope you enjoy it ;)
Haha, glad you like Melvin (hey, close enough right?!) - I did his voice actually, so it's good to hear you like we did a voice for him. My wife laughs every time she hears it ;)
We're actually going to work this into the next update!
Why thank you, we appreciate it ;)
It is, and will always be free ;) That said, have you seen the Steam Engine? I shared the process I went though when making it - you can see it here (if you, or anyone, is interested)...

"...Well .. This is like a bad copy of Minecraft and Terraria ..."
Excellent! Despite telling people it plays much differently, there are still many who compare the two. Fortunately some people (including yourself) can tell that we were not trying to copy them, which is awesome!
Yes! Have you seen the Zombie Walrus yet?
