Hi, you can play without being online, the steam key is just for those players who want it. I update the game here on Itch.io as well (DRM free version)

Hi, you should have received an email about it a few days ago! Here's the instructions in case you didn't get it:

Please find your Steam key for This Grand Life by clicking on the request key button on your purchase page. If you've lost your purchase page, you can get it again from this page https://itch.io/docs/buying/already-bought

Less than 24 hours!

Hi, unfortunately there are no plans for a Mac version at this time

Hey ghostdragon75, did you get it working in the end?

When you unzip the files, can you check those files it says "not found" are in the folder where the ThisGrandLife.exe is located. For example the libbost_filesystem-mgw49-mt-1_60.dll as shown in the image below. If it's not there, then maybe your anti-virus is deleting it when you unzip the files. If it's there but the game still complains it's missing, then please let me know and we can try something else. Don't worry buddy, we will get you playing somehow

Hi, are you unzipping the files first? You cannot run the .exe from inside the zip folder, you have to unzip it first. Here are some instructions for Windows 10:

Open File Explorer and find the zipped folder.

  • To unzip the entire folder, right-click (or press and hold) it, select Extract All, and then follow the instructions.

  • To unzip a single file or folder, double-click the zipped folder to open it. Then, drag or copy the item from the zipped folder to a new location.

Let me know if this helps, otherwise could you let me know what the error message says exactly?

Good to hear =)

Thanks for the log, your specs should be fine. I *think* the problem was the screen resolution, I found an old laptop to run it on and could reproduce the problem.  Alpha 1.61 is uploaded to fix it, could you try that and see if it works?

Hi, thanks for the report, can I ask what specs are your computer? Does Alpha 1.51 work fine for you?

Could you also paste the stuff in your log.txt file here when it locks up?

I got 1 and 2 working, should be in the next version :)

Hi, I'm glad that you're enjoying the game so far :)

1. I can try that adjustment. It should be pretty easy to add commas to all the currency numbers in the game actually because of the way I designed the currency display.

2. A mouse-over popup for the info bars, I'm not sure if I have the functionality for that but I will investigate. Maybe there is another way to display the information you want as well. I will think about this more.

3. You can see the type of work experience by clicking the "Character" button on your profile panel. It should be under the Experience heading.

Thanks very much for your suggestions, they really help me see the game from the player's perspective.

They really are endless!

That's interesting, I used a Windows 7 machine to make that gif! 

If there's a certain resolution you are looking for, I could add it to the list of options so you could select it to avoid the crashing problem.

Hi, you should be able to resize the window to whatever size you want, I did not put any restrictions. Although if you play in too small a window, some of the in-game windows might not be on the screen. See below gif for demonstration.

I am not sure what would cause it to crash though - can you provide steps you use to make it happen? E.g "1. Start the game 2. Go to Options 3. Select 1920x1080...."

Also you can go into Options and resize the UI Scale to make text smaller if you want to play in a smaller window

Contract/freelance work and starting a business are things I have thought about. I have a huge list of things I want to add, but only limited time! We will see... =)

I've just uploaded a new demo, which provides a 'vertical slice' of the game to show what kind of experience the final product will be. You can download it from the link above. The full game will include three scenarios, a custom game mode, preset profiles and the full city-sized map!

The Kickstarter will be launching at 9pm 28/03 UTC / 2pm 28/03 PDT. Higher tiers will include a custom portrait of yourself in the game, a custom profile with your biography and traits, or even a whole scenario dedicated to you!

When it launches, you can back it by clicking here

Hi oddare, I downloaded the file and ran it again just in case something happened to it, and it was fine for me. I assume the mysterious file Avast is talking about is the ThisGrandLife.exe? Could Avast be going nuts because this is the first time I've released the game in any form, and it's never seen it before?

I've previously released a game on Steam, and you can rest assured I wouldn't be sticking viruses into my files!
