Looks cool, but I likely can't get it.

I only have $1.42 on my steam account, and there'd be no way for me to get this besides someone being really kind...(hint, hint).

I have been waiting for 6 months. Throwing money at the screen and putting my card in the CD tray didn't work... I am getting it and being totally unproductive tomorrow.

I feel you. My parents hate credit cards and buying stuff on the internet without one is almost impossibru! Buying KSP was an odyssey, and I don't want to repeat it, so FTP games it is for now. :(

It's on sale through the humble store so you can use bitcoins.

EDIT not true

Yeah nice to see this also on the KSP forums!

I'm soo going to play this. It's less than 8 hours from now going to be released. :D

Since I discovered KSP this will be one of the greatest games I've played (I've watched so many let's play vids on Youtube).

Btw I love the Banished vids from GamersDissent. http://www.youtube.com/user/GamersDissent/videos?tag_id=UCdtxiC-z9Y2hyqESvcfA7Cg.3.banished&shelf_id=12&view=46&sort=dd

When I first saw it I was into it right away, because I just left Sim City 4 behind and in general love building games. (I could waste eternity in a C&C level just building my base and keeping the AI subdued in a corner. :P )

When I watched quill18 on youtube playing it I began thinking if it is already balanced enough? The availability of food resources without the need to start building crops any time soon in the game seemed a bit off to me, but maybe it wasnt explained in all detail?

Will get it though, but might be waiting a few weeks for some patches and maybe a steam sale at easter.

I've heard $20

Yeah, I'm probably going to have to get that

Damn that steam easy-gateway-into-spending-your-cash-on-games thing :P

I also have this problem, so I just use vouchers. Buying RimWorld was painful.

To do: order buildings to be built, mark resources to be gathered, distribute workforce on jobs/buildings to be worked - close to settlers without the road building disaster but with aging/dying/propagating population and need for food, clothing, housing and firewood during the cold seasons.

Just bought it. I waited for the steam release so I could get it on there. HOWEVER I don't like how steam charges 18,99 EUR as if that's a fair counterpart to 19,99USD. So I got it direct from the developer (which also includes a steam key, go figure!) for the 19,99USD (15EUR for those interested). So if you wheel and deal in EUR, consider saving yourself half a pizza and get it direct (with steam key!)

edit: also, I didn't check out a thing about it, bought it completely based on you guys' enthusiasm. How's that for trust eh? Now it better be good!

Can you - like KSP - play it without Steam if you used the Steam key?

Welp, I just spent way too long playing that!

My city has gone through some disasters, but it recovered and right now it's at about 300 people and growing faster than ever :D

Seems like it, I've activated it on steam and the D/L link from the humble people is still working fine for the regular DRM-free version

So far it's fun!

Game 1 - Hard: Nobody builds anything and I give up and go to sleep

Game 2 - Tutorial

Game 3 - Hard: I try to make them build a bridge to get them across the river to build where I want them to; it takes too long, winter comes, everybody dies

Onwards!

Game 4 - Hard: They survived for three winters! Then I didn't have enough laborers (I think) and everybody starved to death while the fish was piled up neck high at the fisherman's hut. In the end two people survived, I made them a fisherman and a woodcutter, they lived next door but apparently hated one another because one was always hungry and the other was always cold.
