What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are an independent developer and being on Early Access allows us the chance to earn the trust and support of our community by sharing our progress, intentions, and ideas. Also equally important to us is that we are able to make a game and utilize new technology with and for the community and even other developers. We get the opportunity to create strong relationships with our players and get deeper insight into what they are doing and saying so that we can act on what things actually need to change and look at things from other perspectives.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Very difficult to say, since we are developing an engine, distribution platform for mods, data systems, and the game layer itself. The project is ever evolving, but its likely that the community will decide when they think its "feature complete" to bring it out of EA.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Solely dependent on how far the community sees it going, before we can classify it out of early access. This is one of the biggest issues in developing what we are, vs a traditional game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Unique terrain generation and manipulation, magic, crafting, cooking, building, farming, and some fairly dumb enemy AI. Only functional on DX11 machines (check graphics cards as well as OS). Also, not currently for sale, while we get closer to releasing openGL.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“There is a lot of discussion among ourselves as devs, and the community. One idea that is currently being taken very seriously, is making the entire project free, and selling aesthetic goods, as a means to allow everyone to enjoy the project, but only getting financial support from people that truly believe in what we are doing.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Data gives insights into what needs to be changed that already exists, however new systems and features can come from us, or be licensed from mods that the community has introduced, which proves valuable and fun to the community.”

About This Game

Note: We have had a great deal of success from the 1.0 version, and the communities feedback has been invaluable. Putting full focus into the completion of ver 2.0, we are taking the project down from steam, until we are prepared for launch in Q4 2016 (winterish). We will be sharing progress of the new engine and TUG ver 2.0, as we get closer to release, so please feel free to follow @nerdkingdom for updates.

The new engine brings significant advances over the current 1.0 version, including:
- access to more generations of hardware,
- enhanced graphics
- super fancy new art
- flexible modding/dev environment
- pretty rad mod distribution system
- data/analytics systems for modders
- logic systems
- new terrain generation
- simplified user experience
- 71% less wtf.

Early versions of 2.0 will go to existing TUG users, who will later be able to invite their friends who do not currently have access.

"Check this box if you received this product for free." Well ♥♥♥♥, I seriously wish I could check that box, but I can't. I got suckered into paying for this, oh well. You'd think I'd learn my lesson after Starforge and now this.

Last word from the dev team was 2/2016 - guessing development on this is dead. I wouldn't recommend this game until there's some confirmation that it's not vaporware.

Too many other Survival / Crafting Games out there that out-do this one.
Can't seem to get into it versus the others.

It was fun and inovative to some extend but dated quickly.

Thumbs up for version 2.0 IF it contains a modern game engine with features that apply to today's gaming world ie realtime content server / mod sharing / reliable networking / biomes / working elements (water/fire) / reasonable ai

pretty rad mod distribution system - is it realtime ?

Don't care that i paid for ver 1.0 or better grahics - Please give us a moddable multiplayer game engine that works.

Thumbs down for version 1.0 - sorry but you did promise innovation.
