    If you've read at least the last couple of pages of this thread, you're asking this because your cursor is hesitantly hovering over the buy button.

    In this case, long answer is yes, but it's not quite worth playing yet. If you want to support a new developer who made a fun game around an awesome setting, with an excellently crafted atmosphere, buy it, but buy it knowing it's probably not going to truly be ready to play for another month or so. For me, I have zero regrets even though I'd really like to be playing it right now and am slightly annoyed that I'm unable to enjoy a somewhat polished finished product.

    This looks insanely good. It has one of the most unique premises I've seen. It's diesel punk on a empty rusted up space station.
    But why a space station?
    I'm just wondering at the reason of why anyone would want to stay on a space station like this. I just want to find out

    Try to disable your y-axis camera IRL. If you can't look up or down, you won't notice the ad at all.

    Usually we have nothing for a few years and then - incline released after incline in quick succession.
    Why?
    I guess some misterious cyclical rhythms of the universe according to which incline is allowed to be played.

    One remark - MONO are really rookies. The devs of Kingmaker are seasoned guys.

    Indeed. And then... a drought littered with decline :negative: but hey, at least we still have vague idea of how many incline that will occur and when, like Colony Ship RPG, whatever VD and co and also Styg planned next and more :dealwithit:

    is there an ETA on next patch? I bought this because it will be months before pathfinder is finished, hopefully it will only be days/weeks for this.

    tl;dr lots of fixes but not until the end of next week :mixedemotions:

    Show Spoiler
    Hello everyone! We are currently testing the next batch of fixes that are planned to be released by the end of next week. From now on, testing of each patch will be extended by a couple of days to ensure better quality builds are released.

    Patch #3 aims to address major issues like a player’s personal locker in the Vulture’s Nest rebooting and causing items to disappear, the Antique Shop loop and many other bugs including:

    Quest fixes
    • Crass (key character) can be killed during the "Provocation" quest.
    • The "Final Station" quest doesn’t activate.
    • The mission "Child’s Play" is not added to the journal after talking with a quest giver.
    • "The Masquerade Massacre" quest doesn’t progress
    • A quest item doesn’t disappear after completing "Hot Blooded" quest.
    • Game crashes during the mission "A Simple Job".
    • The Antiquarian doesn’t let the player go to the Seaside after getting all of the necessary items.
    • Gosp gets stuck in doors and can’t kill Zerden.
    NPCs
    • Can’t talk to Captain Riebel in the “Bypass” location after Ditt and the player fix the generator.
    • Ridosh attacks everyone in the Square of Glory.
    • Gosp talking to the player while not being around anymore (House of Zerden).
    • Game crashes while talking to The Dowel.
    • Tanaber dialogue error.
    • Dialogue with Genaro starts unexpectedly after transferring to the Salt Wasteland location.
    • Valk causes somnic damage in the Crematorium.
    Locations
    • Random encounter from "A Simple Job" mission occurs after exiting all the other locations on the global map.
    • No way to exit a few random encounter locations (Hobo With Shotgun etc.).
    • Combat is not available when entering the Technical Unit random encounter for the second time.
    • Player character gets stuck in the sectors of certain locations.
    • Player character falls under the game level while using the elevator in "Customs Authority".
    • Player character falls under the game level at the “House of Zerden”.
    • Player character gets stuck in the opening doors at “Reservation D-106”.
    • No way to enter an anomaly zone in “Reservation D-106”.
    • The light effects don’t work properly in the final location.
    • No way to exit the tube tunnel in the “Antique Shop”.
    Misc
    • Game freezes connected with memory leaks and level generation.
    • Horizon Crykk item used without animation.
    • Inability to get all of the achievements.
    • Somnic dogs occasionally turn invisible after loading a game level.
    • Sounds tied to certain objects don’t change in volume depending on distance to said object.
    • Absent maps for some locations (Checkpoint B-10/2, Military base, Adaptation Block, Vulture’s Nest, Bypass, Urb Perimeter and Technical Tunnels).
    • The message regarding the forced stop for an inspection disappears during "A Simple Job" quest if the player does nothing.
    Just like with the previous patch, the list is not final and is subject to change and expand further. Stay tuned for more details coming next week.

    wtf? the "free deluxe edition" stuff like art book and soundtrack are going to be removed when it updates so they say to copy them to another file so you can keep them... what the absolute fuck? at least on steam they could easily just make a new sub for their appid that would not have that shit in it but people who bought before the cutoff date could still have it

    fucking russians

    False alarm. There was an intermediary patch for "deluxe" edition but the new patch was not deployed. Probably your game was not updated.

    The next patch will come next week.

    Hopefully by this they mean the "missing english translation". Military Base map was the first one I noticed to be in Cyrillic.

    Doesn't seem to be any mention of item tag fixes though...

    Ugh. At the MQ progression bug too, can't talk to Riebel.

    Has anyone actually completed it prior to these patches causing more hiccups?

    Some guys from Steam claims to have finished it but he played non-stop after release therefore without Patch #2.

    It's kind of stupid cause Patch #2 broke the main story. We will have to wait for the next patch.

    Yeah, I wish someone close to my GTX850m i54200H shared their experience how game is playing on such ancient machines.
