    This comment summoned me! I don't think so. I know there is such a feature in GOG, but we don't use it, so at least in the meanwhile, GOG and Steam versions are separate. It's a commercial decision so I won't be the one making it, since I'm dumb with money. If it will be decided to do this thing, I'll let everyone know.

    We're taking our sweet time with the next update. Hopefully the changes will suit everyone who hates the current state of things. Couldn't get my hands on the 1.08 in its current state to run with the new balancing formulas, but I'm getting promises of something awesome!

    On aimed shots though, are you totally updated? Because aimed shots are a thing since the previous update! You can make people lose their weapons, go blind and get higher damage and stuff. Works for me like a charm!


    Thanks! Glad you like it! :)

    Yeah, the dialogue thingy was found out to be annoying far too deep into the dev cycle. We'll do stuff to it in the DLCs. For now, you can sometimes get a dialogue that has no next question button, for example with Alex in Red Fighter, to get a taste of how we are going to fix it in future dlc :D Glad you like the game over all!

    Balance issues and that bothersome ROUND problem we found half a year ago but always forget to fix will change in 1.08 already.

    Thanks a lot! Hope it worked!

    Yeah, sorry for a long reply, that DLC making business is keeping me away from the internet for ages. I thought nobody read those, but then we got some complaints, so we'll try posting notes together with posting patches from now on, unless it's a small hotfix, we will probably still rush those out faster than I can type in the change log. Our work ethic evolved into "rush the patch, go take a nap, maybe write a changelog someday because nobody reads those" but we were shown the error of our ways!

    Yeah, there was actually an occasion like this too. But mostly, we just take changelog writing slow, because I thought nobody reads them.

    Most people don't read them (me included) but they are vital as reference material. If you change something important and then it doesn't work like it used to anymore, there's suddenly a debate whether that is a bug or intended, leading to false reports, with no way to tell. Small changes can also drastically change the meta, and people will be unable to correct eachother since they effectively do not know what version is being discussed, and again nobody can correct them because nobody knows when a change occurred.

    Good changelogging is also really helpful if there's ever changes on the project in terms of developers, since it can help inform how certain changes were made and/or why, as well as when, and why some things were later done differently as compared to earlier. This is probably not an issue for your relatively small team, but it's just good practice.

    Would be me mad at you Comrade if game was priced at 60 imperialist dollars not 15. You and your collective deserve the bonus in Commissar's Opinion.

    That's just awesome! Thanks, man :D Wait until a few dlcs. There are going to be fixes galore, as well as lots of new locations. A few in each one.

    That's really good reasoning. Expect a huge changelog with the dlc! :D

    Thanks, man! This gog\steam merge is still an open question for us, maybe we'll do it for the paid DLC this summer, and I agree with those who think that this move would've been fair, but yeah, even though it's kinda shameful to admit it, we really need the support that extra copies sold on GOG currently give us to make ends meet. It's not a lot, but it compensates all that's eaten up by various taxes we need to pay before receiving the moneys. :( I was a saner, happier person before I learned how huge that percentage was.

    I'm against low prices, it's harmful for those who doing somehtign good.
    If your game is good - why lower prices?
    We have farmer that came toout house every Friday? and selling natural milk, sour creme and so on.
    He sold it cheap, despite being natural, or eco food.
    I told my mom that would be better if he rised prices, than eventually he startin to mix it with some artifical shit like they doing in shoprs, supermarkets etc.
    And what do you think - not long ago I ate sour cream we buy form him, and feel that nasty oily film on roof of the mouth.
    So we checked it with hotwater and turned out it's not natural sour crem anymore, instead there was oil on the sourface.
    Instead, he could sell it for higher price.

    Regarding the totem in the forest:

    I tried dropping meat but I got zapped by lightning. Is it because I carved obscene words into the totem? :negative:

    Not after they ignored us with Atom 1!
    Seriously, Epic Store, if you're reading this, don't you think it's time to reply to that message I sent you in December? Let's talk $$$!
    My lifelong goal of plugging Atom on every platform is getting messed up!

    Yup! You disrespected old man Perkunas!

    Pretty sure I killed the Guard leader and Fyodor.
    And got 3000 rubles from the Merchant leader.
    Except this is how it ended.

    Awesome, these guys are setting the gold standard for post release support. Constant communication, listening to feedback, frequent updates, free dlc... For that alone they deserve every sale they get.
