Title: December 2013 Update (aka "It's finally ready!")
Post by: abisso on December 16, 2013, 12:15:23 AM
I said I'd release the demo "in the first half of December" and, for once, I've been able to stay true to my words. Thankfully, December has 31 days, so we're still in the first half!  ;D

Anyway, it took about 18 hours non-stop to achieve this result. Plus the hundreds and hundreds before, of course!

There are also other very interesting news, but I'll update this thread tomorrow, after a loooong sleep.

So, for the moment, move your asses distaffs and voyage to the DOWNLOADS PAGE! (http://forgegame.com/?p=downloads)

P.S. Since I didn't have a single free minute, I completely skipped the promotion: please help spreading the word!

Ahhhh! You posted this just as I was typing me reply to the last update. I think I'm going to be the first person to download!

This might be a known issue, but I'm asking just to be sure: my virus scanner doesn't detect any problems, but Windows 8.1 doesn't want me to open the installer because it says "Windows Smartscreen" doesn't recognize the app. Any clue as to why it would be giving me this warning?

I'm assuming the file is safe, but I figured I'd ask

I don't have a clue, to be honest, and none of the testers ever reported such an issue: but Windows is renowned for being very suspicious with strangers. It probably detected that I made the game using Linux. :D

Seriously speaking, I have plans to upload an installer-free version as well, which should probably solve the issue.

Anyway, unless Chaos has swapped the original .exe with one full of Dead Ones, I'd say you can install it safely!

As a quick update, in the download page there's now the option to download an installer-free version, in case that one doesn't work for you.

Windows users are strongly encouraged to download the installer version, though. And don't believe the OS "virus warning" in case it pops up: it's probably just another lousy attempt at selling expensive vaccines! ;)

Despite the good number of downloads of the first days, I've still haven't receive any help offer, with the only exception of translators.

Requests for translations continue to grow, as a matter of fact, so I think not doing them would be a suicide; especially considering I need to find people to continue working on the game. The team is just barely sufficient at the moment, which is better than being completely insufficient, but I'd like to speed up the process.

I'll reveal more in the January update, but please you guys do whatever you can to spread the word in the meantime! Tell your friends, your parents, your swans! Pretty please!
