I agree with most of the sentences above. But from my side - I like this game.

I have spotted few bugs. For example infinite water supply (inventory) after loading the game, or duplicates of my bed. I like the physics here except this always-one-boat. Also my oil turned brown from black one.

I don't know much boat-builders and I haven't played minecraft, so this is a bit new to me.

What to expand/ do more?

For sure add some not-cubic shapes. Just for making smooth boats. That should decrease the friction. You could create those pieces in a special workshop building.

Another choice should go for some talks with people around. I don't know if anybody is talking more than a few words.

The game has great possibilities, but I have spotted a few problems that makes me mad:

1. There is a balance problem. You need much more stones than wood. So for my 90% of time I had max miners and only one woodcutter.
2. The balance is also about the time: once I have lost my fellow because of multiple accidents in a row. I have no time to push him to a farm.
3. Also resources are produced too slow. I can lost a few hours only waiting till some of them increase. If you don't want to change it, make a simple button "speed up".

4. If I don't care about a guy, it will drop hunger to 0% and automatic goes iddle. It should work, but for me it worked only for first slot of fishing. The rest was buggy and the game was unable to play (infinite loop of moving guy to iddle).

5. Also (I am not sure) when I lost the guy, the price for the next didn't drop. Double check that.

SPOILER:

6. You can't finish the game. You can't produce 15 guys. You can produce only 10 of them.

Hope the game will be fixed and expanded. It has potential!

Can you explain how do you earn money? I have built an antenna and came to it and nothing happened.

SPOILER HERE :)

I have managed to build big, stable tower. I could build even more, but my computer seems to be too slow. I don't know why. If you recalculate every piece of box and struts, probably it is not the best solution. More levels of tower was causing FPS around 10. It is unplayable any more.

Screenshot below. I used many struts to make my construction stable. And I have found some pieces that can be expanded:

  • lack of savegame - you should consider making one
  • deletion of struts - currently I don't know how to destroy unnecessary struts


BONUS :)

I was also thinking about part of physic simulation. My tower was rather stable construction. Except top of it, everything was very stable. So there was unnecessary calculations of physic of lower levels. Consider marking calculation nodes as "stable" ones, that needs recalculating IF neighbour node was recalculated (with different values) OR calculating step was older than N steps (some number greater than 1 ;) ).

This explanation is not the perfect one. I don't know what is inside the game, but I expect that the simulation is dynamic (which is great!). So when I was thinking how to solve the problem of basic dynamic simulation I got a simple idea, plus some solutions explained above how to make less math at once ;) .

I like the idea of tower. But you don't have to follow the tip ;) . I have managed to build my skyscraper and after all found the tip which made my tower stable.

I have spotted two bugs:

1. If you close the game (not the window) and go back to game, you continue the tower instead of building brand new one.
2. When your tower fall, it can rotate the first block and then you can't rebuild your tower.

It was brute force of checking all possibilities. For levels that have less than 10 M cases clever programs are not worth to build. Calculations of that is a matter of few minutes, building program is about few hours.


With level 14 I had to calculate exact length of target lines to get to know what is the target of lines. Some other clever things (like symmetry) and finally I got the answer without a program. So it was rather a help than a full answer.


And add one more thing: level 15 is for sure faster by hand than checking all possibilities. Intersections are not so easy to catch. Plus you have to think which cases are possible and which aren't. That wasn't easy, but it was complex enough to show me logic/math part of your game.

I have completed the game! It was amazing! :) I even wrote a program to solve the puzzle (but used only for one level).


The last level (15th) is a bit unclear at first. You have 36 "ideas" to find, but you have to find only 29 of them. The rest are only for fun.

I have retested with new version. Oxygen is fixed. GREAT! :) Now I know that I live. ;)

About upgrade issues: when you close the window you can't use upgraded things AND you can't upgrade them more. Just expand your inventory, save, close the window, open the game again and *magic* you can't use expanded inventory again (only 25 resources instead of 30-something).

> By closing the window do you mean closing the game?

Yes, complete close of the window. I haven't tried to reproduce the bug, but once I will try.

About exploration [spoiler]: I have found different species and the silver. Good. But most annoying were jellyfish (or something like that). Is it possible to destroy them? :/


And another strange thing spotted:

when I lost a game (eyes have eaten me), I have run again the game, and I have found that some of the resources were in my base. Probably from last save. Buildings were lost, but resources not. Is it a feature to start faster, or rather a bug (no reset for resources)?

First: I like the idea of mining here (first mine, then collect). Also the background is good.

Second: I don't like moving system, but I can used to it. "I don't like" doesn't mean it is bad. I just don't like. But I like the idea of flying and shooting at once.

Third, I have spotted a few bugs:

a. In update 0.4 you don't loose oxygen.

b. When you throw away inventory, save and open the game, inventory is lost.

c. Also when you completely close the window and reopen, most of the upgrades are lost. Plus you can't upgrade them once again.

d. I have reached depth of ~300 m and no silver, nor gold was spotted. I don't know if I should go deeper? I have plenty of other resources and I don't have any precious metals.
