Eythimis here , the site admin with some cool news!
We recently fixed some major bugs and now we are ready to put some new models and functions into the game. This means that really soon we will have a demo ready for public testing. Let us know down in the comments if you would like to try it out. We also got copyright , an installer and a “End User Licence Agreement”(EULA) .
We hope we can have an alpha version of the game with several scenarios in September . We will sell the game through our own website and we will publish it on Steam Greenlight later this year.
Well I personally wanted things to cool off a bit, so I wasn’t posting much for the past few weeks…but there is a reason for it. I have just completed a lot of code which runs the entire structure of the game. I have been spending a lot of time bug fixing / revamping the entire inventory systems. When I was done, I began adding a lot of components to the game…and I must say I am very impressed at the progress, nothing like playing your own game and getting chills watching it just flow. I have spent the past month closing a lot of loops on the inventory structure and now am complete. Not only was the inventory completed and bug tested the shit out of, I added some really cool systems to the game. I actually purposely didn’t want to document the past month because I wanted to surprise myself. I am writing about 3,000 lines of code every day and blasting through development.
Also, the game flow has been coded. What I mean by this is that the game is playable, a user can begin game play, and continue progressing via level / skill / stats, building quality & speed as their skill thrives through the stages. Yes it is an infinite game mode at this time, but even as the creator, I have spent about 4-5 hours playing my own game so far haha…pretty cool experience.
Demo….will be soon.
BTW, thank you for the thousands and thousands of visits, and many personal emails sent to us…this site really got started in January 2016 and our visitor count is through the roof.

Let us start with some updates! I (Euthimis , the site admin) have been working on some interesting scenarios/missions that will include stuff like building a computer , replacing parts and a DEMO scenario. Yes that’s right! We will release a demo soon and not only that but we will also release a Pre Alpha build of the game for testing. Check our site daily for updates on the game and announcements!
