    Why did you post it here? It is PC based?

    Saw this earlier today.
    Honestly I fucking love how this game looks. Great use of a 4-color palette. It's a shame it's not true low resolution, but that's probably for the better (since it uses a mouse-driven interface).
    Looks like a very relaxing game.

    Whoa this game looks fantastic. I hope they'll include some naval combat eventually. Sea faring pioneers are bound to bump on some pirates.

    Graphics give me the old Sid Meier's Pirates vibe i love it.
    Although the music doesn't give me that dangers of exploration feeling you would expect from a game set in 1500.

    Very nice. But will wait for the game to be completed to play it.

    Because necro'ing old indie threads seems to be my newfound hobby on this site.

    There has been several updates since this thread (the only one I can find), including what seems to be a combat overhaul:

    The game is still free, but I recall the dev making some plans on a commercial release after a few updates.

    Devlog (tumblr): http://pioneersgame.tumblr.com/
    Devlog (tigsource): http://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=25699.740

    I was going to make a new thread, but I'll do the mods a courtesy and just use this one.

    I love the sound the interface makes when you click and scroll.

    Wow, this looks very promising. I just hope that the events in the game are varied enough and not repetitive or simplistic.

    When is it supposed to come out?

    The combat has been changed (again) to take on a more Neo Scavenger feel from the looks of it.

    Some parts from the last updates (everything is available here or there) because it's one of the most promising games out there, maybe it's already very good but I haven't given it a try yet.

    The game evolves with so many updates it's a little worrying. I do look forward to it, y'know, eventually.
