I feel much better about being so amazingly lazy when I hear it took them 6 years to make something like this.

Then again, no one needs to feel bad about being slow developers in a world where Grimoire exists

And Kenshi will be released on December 6 (How do I say "übermorgen" in English?) - this was in Early Access for a long time, too.

Never heard of that one. Looks pretty interesting. Seems to be very well received, too

Looks cool but it's priced too high at $20. One of the best ways to tell if a game is priced right is the number of reviews (good or bad - it doesn't matter). A correctly priced game will have dozens of reviews after launch day, an indication that it's selling.

Is there a DRM-free version (GoG or Humble)?

Thanks Marcuz. Can I ask how you've improved the combat? I played the game briefly on release and enjoyed the art style and atmosphere, but not the combat.

Thank you Pongo,

- we have made range combat more useful:
- re-balanced all range weapons;
- added counters to the stacks of ammunition;
- added side effects to some projectiles;

- then we added an active pause in easy mode: you can pause the game while being able to still manage your character's inventory;

- all the boss fights were re-hauled, so that there are more strategic elements to them;

- we've re-hauled hard mode intensely, so that is more challenging: not only the enemy stats, but also their behaviour.

This way we have separated more easy, normal and hard mode, so that who likes more a turn based combat can go for easy mode and pause often if he feels overwhelmed, and who likes challenging action can go for hard mode.

There are many more changes to the overall game, and fixes, the whole changelogs are on our Steam announcement page:

(the page is down at the moment, but that's a Steam issue)

Great, thanks for the response. It's good to hear you've made so many improvements! I'll give it another go.
