hmm. If it worked before, then maybe. The new version requires a higher spec machine so it might be too slow. If you can run other mid-range PC games then it should be OK. We're hoping to release a demo version so you can try it out.

We'll possibly be doing a Beta program as we get closer to release but that's something we still need to discuss with our publisher. If we go ahead with it we'll probably make an announcement on our Discord server.
These broken berries sounds like you've run into an error loading up your previous save file (possibly related to my previous post). Have a look at the contents of the log file for any errors or, if it's small enough, send the log file here and I'll take a look.
Sorry to hear about your storage problem. The only thing I can think is going on is the game is producing an enormous log file because of some repeating error. However this would take quite a bit of time to produce a file that consumed that much. Moreover, every time you launch the game a new log file is started, freeing any space it previously used. Anyway have a look in this folder ~/.config/unity3d/Denki/Autonauts/Player.log and keep an eye on it as you run the game.
Failing that, I really have no idea why it would use that much.
Sorry :( Most feedback suggested that cleaning wasn't much fun. However the Folk will require certain things to be happy (food, shelter, clothing etc) so it's something we may reintroduce in a later release. We've not removed all that much from v21.2 and we've added in a whole load so you won't be short of things to play with :)
Hi! Yes, sorry about this I think it's a pesky bug. I'm not quite sure why it keeps happening as it's difficult to catch. However this won't be an issue when we finally release a new version on Steam as we no longer use the wash tub any more. Sorry for your inconvenience.
Hi. Apologies for the confusion. Autonauts on itch.io is the Pre-Pre-Pre-Alpha: a public prototype used to help prove the concept and help us build The Real Thing, for release through Steam. The itch.io version hasn't been updated since November 2017 and we won't be updating it again. Obviously we haven't made that clear enough so, moving forwards, it'd be wise if we reiterated that every time we keep our itch.io followers in the loop with progress.
Unfortunately the version you have will not be compatible with the next release which will come out on Steam first. So yes, you'd need to buy it. We're hoping to release a free, limited version of the game though.
Oh no! Unfortunately there's been a few reports of save files not appearing. This can be because you've chosen a folder that you don't have access to. Try saving to your desktop instead (and do an early test save to make sure it works). When we release the next version on Steam it uses a much safer system and this sort of thing won't happen any more.
Sorry about that :(
Thanks for the feedback. More programming commands are a big request and we plan on adding more some time after initial release. Changing the terrain will be available from first release. The Folk will play a much more important role and not just be a pain to look after. When you say have a bot return to its shelter do you mean to put itself into bot storage? At the moment bots lose their program when stored (this will be fixed in the first release) but even if it could do that you're then left with the problem of how it would come out again :) The first version that comes out will probably be PC only but a Mac/Linux version should follow shortly afterwards. We're hoping the price will be in the range you suggested.
The game will still be called Autonauts and we won't be applying a version name like we used to in the prototype.
Yes, every building that can accept an item will have these signs showing what is stored in them.
Yes Folk still exist. Now the player needs to create them from Folk Seeds.
Bots now don't need badges to be renamed, you can rename them any time you like.
Yes we'll be sticking with the txt format though a lot of the variable names have changed so the old files are completely incompatible with the new game.
