I live in Nijmegen, developing games is my hobby.
I wish I could hit the + button more. I know (from experience :P) this gun is incredibly powerful. If somebody ever creates a wiki this build deserves its own page.
If you want to play with others, don't forget you have an unlimited number of invites at olvand.com ;).
Indeed not yet implemented, but they're high on my list now you can build things which need a lot of material. Not sure if they'll make the next update, though (but thanks for the reminder :) ).
Allright, good luck. If you have any bugs to report, please do so in the forums Desura.com
Not at the moment, but thanks for the offer. I'll keep your name in mind.
Excellent question. The answer is because the chance of more people playing online at the same server at exactly the same time is relatively small if a game doesn't have hundreds of players. Even very popular indie games have this problem. The solution is to simply wait for others to join (people often join when they see somebody is already playing) or to invite your friends (there is an invite feature on the website).
Very nice review, and thank you for the compliments! :)
I actually agree. Later, the worlds will be filled with randomly generated plants.
Of course of course. You should see these stairs as a precursor of what's coming :). Remember this game hasn't even reached alpha stage yet.
Sorry, I missed this comment completely! The answer: I don't know either. There are quite a lot of people in the waiting line at the moment, and I invite groups of 100 people every time a new update is released. New updates are only released when they're done (so no set-in-stone release dates). The next update will arrive somewhere next week, I expect.
Olvand is in pre-alpha at the moment; the only way to play this now is by requesting an invite at olvand.com, but I should warn you that the waiting list is quite long. The game will go on sale once people start coming back to the game (instead of only playing one of twice).
By going to olvand.com, en requesting one :).
I indeed plan to ask money for this one day (and long before it's finished), but not before I succeed in making people play more than just an hour or two. That is, most people who play now play for a few days, and then leave it. Once I succeed in creating something people will come back to, I think the game is ready for sale.
Yes. There will be large animals, Alots, which you'll be able to tame and ride. There will be much more randomly generated animals, but I'm not sure whether you will be able to catch and tame them yet.
That's hard to say, as I invite new players to test new updates... and new updates are released when they are done. Sorry to keep you waiting so long, I'm working as fast as I can.
Hi Gandalf, that is because you can't. The game is currently in a closed pre-alpha testing phase. You can sign up for an invite on the website (olvand.com). If you own a game review website, you might also want to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your interest!
Thanks, both of you :).
Thank you for interest! You can sign up for a free key at olvand.com. I have to add that the waiting list is quite long at the moment, but I'm doing everything I can to make it shorter.
I'm not sure yet. I invite a new group every time a new update is released, and I don't know when the next update will be finished.
When you start it with Desura, Desura should notify you there's a patch available.
That's good to hear :). You can request an invite for one of the next playtester groups on olvand.com .
Depends on what you mean by a lot :). I've got over 300 names right now, but that number will get smaller and smaller as I increase the tester group size.
Yes, Desura/IndieDB says so, but it is actually in a closed pre-alpha testing phase. You can sign up to be a tester on olvand.com.
Pubs will be blueprints (like all houses), roads can be crafted directly from softstone :)
Both jukeboxes (that's what you mean, right?) and darts are wonderful ideas, although if I include something like darts, I'll probably make it a little different from the real game - I want all the minigames to be unique.
For the spawn places - I have some special ideas for that, but more about that later :).
Indiedb.com This will help you :). If you have more questions like this, there are many helpful people on the forums!
Haha nice :)
Yes, finally! Great job!
