You ever wanted to see Crazy Machines like this? It's no longer a problem. We've worked hard the last days to integrate the fast forward feature. At the moment, it works just by pressing and holding keyboard shortcut F in the game, later we will update our UI.

You can also start making videos without UI now, we've implemented this in the regular branch.

Here are the main issues of the patch:

- added a simulation 'fast forward' feature on keyboard shortcut F
- added keyboard shortcut Shift+H to toggle UI
- optimized overall memory usage
- fixed an issue where the Steam achievement 'Lateral thinking proven!' was not triggered
- fixed an issue where the new icon was not removed correctly when playing a workshop machine

Hi all,

we are live, but, actually, we are not...

Normally we have to push a button and we don't even forgot that.

But still we have a big problem, you can't buy the game.

We will inform you as soon as we have feedback from Valve.

We're so sorry for that.
