Is this game updated anymore?
« on: January 27, 2017, 03:05:24 AM »
Hi. I checked this game out a few weeks ago and have been really enjoying it. But now that i'm looking at the time since the last update, it makes me wonder if the main website is old, or that there seriously hasn't been an update in years.. Can someone please clear this up for me?

It is! Constantly, in fact! Try downloading the experimental builds from the main page, instead of the stable release. It gets ton of features!

I merged changes last night.

Grab a copy of the latest experimental auto-build; we update it every 12-24 hours with new stuff.

Try the launcher. It's the easiest way to keep up to date.

If you get the recent experimentals, you might have trouble starting the game due to a invisible debug screen; you can bypass it by hitttting spacebar every time the screen freezes.

There is a lot of work being done, and the experimental build changes literally daily...

but, yeah, they haven't formally published a new "stable" build in an overly long time.  I think it would be wise of them to get things stable and publish one (and I'm not the only one), but I'm not on the team.
This is the text that goes under the post, and there ^ is the post, so this is where it goes.

I think they nerd to achieve a few goals they already put themselves before making a new stable, and that is why it's taking some time.

Nah, it juse takes a lot if work to get the code extra stable for a release and then do the release (weeks of work).  I started the process back in June, then my baby arrived and things got reeeally busy.

I thought the same thing when I first started playing, but like the above posts say, the dev team is very much active, even with big life events getting in the way of Stable build releases. Kudos to them!

Hello everyone! Thank you all very much for the help! And sorry for such a late reply. I meant to respond right after I saw all of your posts but I forgot to and just now remembered about it. Anyways I did end up downloading the launcher and have been having lots of fun. Thanks again and sorry if I "necro"d this thread. You can lock / delete it if you would like to. Have a great day everyone :)
