Next Update/State of the Game
I know a few weeks ago you were going to give another state of the game update? Any idea on when that is coming?

I will try to get it done very soon - as in today or tomorrow. I keep putting it off due to wanting to get the update ready, but I do realize that just means both are delayed.

Thanks for "keeping me to the fire" as we say in Denmark. As embarrassed as I may be at the delays, I am equally grateful that you set aside time for these questions and reminders. That is not an ironic statement, and I look forward to making the state of the game post and releasing the update - and hopefully having a better (shorter) next update cycle that your posts can be about the game itself :)

Looking forward to it! :)

Me too. I like the game. I'd be willing to help with anything you might need. I'm sure there are others who'd be willing to help if you need help with something.

Keep up the good work! Love the game

Thank you everyone. I have not forgotten my promise of "today or tomorrow", but I'm still kneedeep in bugfixing as I write this.

Earlier today I finalized the first version of a "Mastery Progress" post, which can be found in the (new) Development Update sub-forum. I realize that I have done a poor job lately of maintaining transparency, so this is the beginning of efforts to improve in this regard.

Writing a "State of the Game" update takes a surprising amount of time because it requires condensing a lot of difficult decisions, development information, mistakes (in hindsight), plans and more. As many of you have probably noticed, keeping my posts short is not one of my strong points. But I have not forgotten about it. Time has just been passing by too fast these last days. And I really want to get a game update out asap.

So I will spend what remains of the day on bug-fixing - more specifically in relation to Favor, Offerings and Worship - new ways to finally interact with Deities (which have been present in a non-interactive fashion for quite some time).

Tomorrow morning when I resume work, I will write a Development Update, which may not be a full "State of the Game", but which should help make sure what the current challenges are, what's coming in the near future and try to set a new standard in how I communicate what's going on.

I have noticed the kind offers of help, so hopefully I can also give my thoughts on how to enable this during the next and coming patch cycles.

Also, I want to make sure I do my best to provide ample opportunity to those who look towards this game and its development to keep themselves occupied during a troubled time where many are confined to their home.

To round off for today, once again my thanks to everyone for your encouragement. I appreciate it especially in situations such as these where I am a bit stressed out about being late with an update. I want to reciprocate not just with a great game release some time in the future, but also by improving communication, transparency and participation opportunities. The new sub-forum is one step towards this.

Brother, your game is one of the few I still eager await any sampling of information on. The framework of a truly robust story centered 4x /civilization/ game in this wonderfully fantastic and world generator full of magic, planar power, and monsters playing at men is a sight to behold. I'm extremely eager to see what future mechanics for politics, faith, material acquisition/use, and apocalyptic mayhem are all in store for us.

There are a great many things I wish to bother you over in the future, but for now your plate seems very full. For now, I say here's to a glorious release in the next few days!

Exactly. Please take your time and don't feel rushed.

Thanks. I have taken this to heart and spent today on fixing a couple of tricky bugs rather than writing long-winded forum posts. A game update is much more interesting than words.

Well, been almost a week since last post? Any words on game update or dev update?
Valravn Games  [developer] Apr 11, 2020 @ 7:46am 
Still here working on it most of my waking hours. Days go by so fast. I have the post including state of the game about 66% done. The update is still plagued by some bugs. I will fix only the critical bugs to avoid further delays. Keeping this brief to try and get something out soon.

Edit: I've posted the dev update now. I am still working on the game update, yet another day of fixing bugs. Any day now it will be ready (I know that's not the first time, I've said that about this update).

I guess its very hard to make a game, esp 1 man team, and in thease hard times put yourself and family first, this is just a game and though part of your life its not as important as your life or family. Dont stress about being slow to work on the game. I also early access to starcitizen they got 2-300 programmers and still 7+ years. Thats the way it is. Good luck.

Looking forward to your hard work. You got a great product, take your time and kill those bugs. I rather deal with delays than bugs. Thanks! :steamhappy:

Take your time! I'm just glad that the game is alive. This game has great potential for endless hours of game play.
El Bandito Apr 19, 2020 @ 1:12pm 
I'm also glad that you are doing work on it. Thanks for the update today.
