Great to see you working on this. I love the aesthetic. Missing content but it's the best shrub flattening simulator I've played. Car is a bit squirrelly but I got it going 190-ish MPH... I think. The speedometer is hard to read. Either way keep up the progress! :D

We are excited to share The Away Team: Lost Exodus with everyone! We add a ton of new gameplay features, steam workshop support and lots of new content! Our itch page is https://underflow-studios.itch.io/the-away-team. As well check out our awesome release trailer below.
We are really excited to be continuously pushing out to Itch. While the Steam Workshop integrationisn't available for DRM-free copies we are looking into supporting mod.io. Additionally character files have been reformatted to better support DRM-free sharing specifically to support the itch community. We dump the image to json and push everything in to the character json file. Which is pretty exciting stuff.
What is The Away Team: Lost Exodus?
What we call a space explorative text adventure. We pride ourselves on creating a fast number of worlds that will be formed within your imagination, created perhaps even slightly differently by your own brain and the various paths in the game. Visited by different crew each time you play as the ship AI in a trek across the universe to save the last of humanity.
Additionally for the next 15 hours we have a giveaway going on here: https://www.indiedb.com/giveaways/the-away-team

Following up with what cheeseness said. I would love to know which DLL was missing. I will immediately fix this issue. I am so sorry there was a DLL missing. I'm going to guess it's probably the C++ redist DLL. On steam it installs some redists for us. On itch we don't have that option. I should package all third party dlls with the itch version and I thought I did... But maybe the C++ redist dll is missing. It may also be openal although I thought I got that DLL.
Lastly my email is always open for support issues at firstname.lastname@example.org (this goes to my personal email so don't think you are sending an email into a support void. I usually respond within 16 hours business hours (48 hours real time).
This was really fun. Is there any source to this?
Edit: found it at: https://bitbucket.org/JohnGabrielUK/fire-and-fondness
John, this is really well written, clean and amazing. You did a really a good job.
As a developer who didn't do this. I went the other way and gave people steam keys anyway. I want to ensure you that this is the right choice. Dealing with scammers and people who clearly just want to support places like g2a and their own wallets over playing a wonderful game. I fully regret allowing my own steam keys to run rampant even though it felt like the "right" thing at the time, the real right thing is to be protected from scammers.
