I live in Nijmegen, developing games is my hobby. Responses are very much appreciated, but I tend to forget to look on this page. To make sure I see your message, use the personal messaging system, or olvandgame [at] gmail.com
Haha, interesting proverb ;). And great!
Not sure, actually, I haven't had any complaints ;). I think when 2-digit players tried to reset their accounts, the server got confused and did nothing. Anyway, like MartanZ said, it's fixed now.
Haha, building good bots would take months, if not years. However, I agree that the lack of people to play with is a bit problematic; I plan to add minigames which can also be played alone once I'm done with the city building stuff.
Haha, nice :). What Desura calls 'released' is actually the date on which the game was first available for download, but still nice.
That would be fantastic :)
Haha, another proof that I need to make this more clear ;).
I plan to add a new article within a few hours ;). The original plan was to add Thursday evening (like usual), but I was out of town.
Hey, if this game makes me enough money to buy a Mac I will probably try, yes ;).
Yeah, the weirdest things can be found in Olvand's lakes ;).
Hi, a review would be great! You can sign up for a beta (or actually it's pre-alpha) on olvand.com, although the waiting is quite long :(. I'm doing everything I can to make it shorter!
Hi, I'd love to give you access to the game, but I feel that would be kind of unfair to the roughly 200 people on the waiting list. I let people in in small groups. If you subscribe on olvand.com, you'll be in one of those groups.
Hmm, the link didn't seem to work: Indiedb.com . And Joey, you can always click the reset button to get the started items back!
I know, it's a horrible bug, see this forum message for more info: Desura.com I already uploaded a hotfix to Desura, I expect it to be accepted within 12 hours.
Works! And the thing you mentioned has already been fixed; I've sent you an email with the details.
I plan to completely reimplement the dresser, but not before you can build banks (as in financial instutions).
*keeps fingers crossed*
No problem, play whenever you want. About the servers: Testserver2 seems to be down, but Testserver 1 is still up. Maybe it's something with your router, virusscanner or firewall? In any case, if you need more help, please ask on the forums, so I can reserve this place for more general comments about the game. Thanks! Wessel
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. The map generation is extremely simple at the moment; later randomly generated species of trees, plants and animals will be added. Remember the game has not even reached alpha stage yet. The clustering actually is on purpose.
Did you subscribe on the website?
I'll add you to my list of playtesters :)
It will be invisible in the final game. For now, it's too useful for development-related things ;).
I haven't heard of any people having issues with graphics cards, so I think it will :).
There's quite a long waiting list for invitations, but I'll add you to that list, so you'll be invited in the future :)
Ah, I see :). I'm currently doing closed pre-alpha testing; I invite people in small groups. If you/your friend wants an invite, you can subscribe on olvand.com.
Thanks! You're already on the list ;).
Of course, I added you to the list :).
The demo version? I don't know anything about a demo version, are you sure you're commenting on the right game? :P
Hi, yes, I looked up your address and it indeed is on the list. Thanks for your interest!
