    Bought it. Love it.
    Some bugs and technical issues I've noticed: For some reason the intro cinematic when starting a new game lags like crazy. I have to skip it with Esc to be able to play. The fisherman who teaches you how to skin animals in the second area is sitting on thin air.

    Thanks a lot for trusting us!! Say, would you happen to be sporting an ATI card HD4 or HD5? We have some trouble with those, we're working on fixing. And the fisherman as well as few other bugs of that type are already fixed, the fixes will be patched into the game in 1.0!

    Nope, it's an nvidia gtx 970. All videos in the game lag, not just the intro. Up to date drivers etc.

    Also, a Kippa adds +10 barter :lol::keepmyjewgold:

    Huh! In that case, if it's not too much of a bother, can you launch any video, let it play (and glitch) from start to finish, and send us the resulting error log? It's a file called output_log.txt located in %AppData%/../LocalLow/AtomTeam/Atom our email is support@atomrpg.com
    P.S.: Also, another quick shot at a nice and easy fix: maybe instead of a hardware problem we got a simple codec problem? Do you use custom codecs like K-Lite codec pack or the CCCP codec pack? If you're only using what came with the computer originally, you might have problems with some video formats like mp4, mkv or flv in general, even outside of the game. Try updating the codecs!
    P.P.S.: Hehe... That's why I love this forum. You notice those tiny, yet meaningful details!
    There will be bugs! But there will also be bug fixes uploaded like 2 hours after initial report. We're very quick at that, and we ironed out all the issues except silly small ones and the unfortunate ATI bug and that strange new video glitch thing. Thanks for keeping track of our progress, the game won't disappoint :)

    Sorry, missed your comment at first. We're planning to add free DLC content to Atom and perfecting it long after the Release, we're not leaving the game until it's triple the size and quality of what we initially promised. Maybe after that... But see, we're Eastern Europeans, so eventually we'll also need to make a Jagged Alliance, a Might&Magic, a terrible point and click quest with sexual innuendos, plus I personally would also like to make a Grimoire. Maybe after all that, ATOM II. The story is already half-way made up.

    You can probably get the actual name and franchise. Think it must be worth about 5 dollars now, considering how many times it has been dragged through the dirt.

    Should I get this game to play while waiting for Insomnia: The Ark to get finished/fixed?

    For sure man. You can even start playing around the 18th-26th of December when ATOM is actually out of early access, and it still will keep you distracted for the several months after that it's going to take for Insomnia to become "finished" (if that day does indeed ever come).

    PLUS! You'll be playing a much better CRPG in the process.

    But seriously though, 26th is steam christmas sale territory, you don't want to launch when people already spent their budget and the front page is full of deep discounts. Just something to consider.

    I agree. You should definitely feel it out. Definitely don't release during a sale, as it will destroy your new release visibility. Before or after should be fine though.

    Wallet fatigue is a thing but honestly it's what Jinn says visibility is king on steam success. That new releases tab gets removed from the front page during sales and you have to actively seek it out which is something I guarantee you 99.999% of steam users don't do.

    agree, don't release during a sale, it will go unnoticed and then people will be playing their new games..maybe wait a month or so, or release maybe like the 12th-14th of Dec if possible?....I don't know, I am no marketing expert, but I would avoid releasing during the steam sale at the very least

    I want to get this when it comes out of early access to play while waiting for other games to get fucking fixed and you fuckers are in here lobbying to delay the release?

    Don't release just before sale too, people will be on tight budget due to Christmas and will be holding off with game purchases untill sale, also if the game generates any good word of mouth, you won't be able to capitalize on it.
    Wait till 20th of January at least, so people have time to try games bought on sale and recently acquired salary will give them capacity to impulse purchase.
