The game is definitely not dead, Tynan is working on 1.3 and has been for that long. A testing branch called "FireBird" has been being updated for that long. Theres also some oddity in that Ludeon has hired a Lead multiplayer focused developer. Tynan also claim that 1.3 will be much much more disruptive to the modding community as such some modding devs are holding off on updating until 1.3 releases. I suspect only a few more months until then.

September was just a few months ago, mate.
I dunno, "dead" feels like the wrong word. Was Skyrim dead in 2016? Heck, is it dead now? I tend to see a dead game as one of two things:

A. It's an online game and hardly anyone is playing.
B. It's an early access game and they've stopped updating.

This game has been in 1.0 for quite a while, and no disrespect to Tynan whatsoever, he's doing great work, but it's the mods that really breathe new life into this game. Mods are still coming by the dozen, and are still being updated even despite many of the former authors of popular mods going missing from the community.

Besides all that, it's true what the others say: September wasn't long ago with regards to development cycles, and 1.3 is in the works.

It's May now. September was over half a year ago.

A game finishing development doesn't mean it's dead. What an entitled zoomer.

Tynan is probably finally optimizing the shapghetti code and the game wont run like a slideshow with more than 12 colonists and the 60 man raids that come with it
If that's ever the case I will buy his book
Tynan's working on his new game. It's a point and click adventure where you travel back in time to stop Temujin from uniting the steppe folk so Lenin is never born and ww1 n 2 never happen.

Now I am getting scared to be forced to play without my Revian-Dragon Clan. I mean I had 300 hour without using any mods at all. Now I can't live without them. At least for Rimworld.
Lol @Baked.Bread, can we really draw a direct line from late-12th to the 20th century? Have seen similar statements on this point, and I’m curious why it’s a thing.

"If the Russians were never united, the Soviet Union never would have existed!" Kind of ridiculous, I agree. It's kind of like blaming the Romans for World War II. "Rome united Europe. The Holy Roman Empire emulated Rome. That led to the German Empire, which is why you-know-who had a casus belli to claim the Saar Basin, which snowballed into Austria, then Chechoslovakia, and before you know it we have a full-blown world war. TO SAY NOTHING OF STALIN LITERALLY AIMING TO REVIVE THE ROMAN EMPIRE."

Tynan always provide backwards compatibility for new versions. It may not be worth it if 1.3 is extremely good.
bruh, this is an offline game. How tf can an offline game be "dead"?
