The prospectors are bugged

So at the beginning of the game, after talking to the prospectors to get the gas, I decided to go back to the house to get some more money since I had bought a few things from the seller. But when I left the house again the prospectors and their stuff was gone (including the fence they're in front of). Like they didn't load. I restarted the game a few times, uninstalled and reinstalled it but it kept happening. It doesn't happen everytime I re-enter and leave the house though. If I re-enter and leave the house before talking to them, they stay where they are. It only happens if I go back to the house after having talked to them. Honestly I'd be fine just moving forward with the story but I don't know if I'm gonna need to talk to them again later on to solve a quest and don't wanna risk getting stuck further into the game.

I'm only at the beginning but I really like the premise so I hope I'll be able to keep playing.

I wanted to add that I had this same issue! I don't mind re-starting the whole game at this point, since it's only at the start and I've been loving what I've seen so far. But I wanted to mention I also experienced the same bug.

Hello there, thank you so much for reporting this! Follow-up question - does this happen before you manage to get gas from them, or after? 

After they've given me the gas.

Alright, at least you're not missing any content with them, and you can complete the main storyline. That's a relief! 

If you tell them that they should not build the mine, they are supposed to move away. Maybe that's not clear though, or they're not behaving the way we intended. We'll add it to our bug tracking system. 

Thanks again! :) 

Oh wait I did tell them not to build the mine! Uh I guess they left because of that then. I figured they'd leave eventually but I didn't think they would right away. Thanks for replying and sorry for wasting your time lol I'll get back to playing the game then.

No worries at all! We're always interested in learning more about people's experiences with the game. Let us know if there's anything else on your mind, and happy gaming! :) 

Should anyone run into this before they get the gas or  pass on Lienna's decision, for me the prospectors reappeared after I closed the game and reopened it. I hope this saves people having to restart.
