It is the year 2287, one of the first colony ships sent out by Earth arrives at the planet Maria, in the Epsilon Indi Star System. During its landing sequence, something appears in front of the massive ship that causes it to lose control and crash into the planet. Some of the colonists survive in lifeboats, but what they find is an unforgiving land filled with creatures ready to outlast the visitors from Earth. Now the survivors must explore, gather, build, create, fight, and ultimately, conquer the land.

Are you loading your old save? Saves across version won't be compatible until a0.6. Sorry. :( Just start a new game when you launch the app and it should work.

I don't think Iam,or maybe iam,thing is I deleted the old folder and all the files along with it.I then extracted the new version ran it,played single-adventure mode it froze on the loading screen,crashes to desktop.I then restarted it played single player this time,got past the intro cut scene then same thing happened.Now it might be an error on my part not properly uninstalling stuff etc. or perhaps a corrupted download.Anyway as of this post I'm redownloading it,will give it another shot once its done.

The saves are actually in the windows documents folder. Go there and delete that folder as well just to be sure.

No, his was working before. Yours never worked...right? What are your specs and when you say freezes at 100%, are you loading story, adventure, or build. If the ladder two, what resolution?

This is a really stupid question but will this be free?(kinda hope its not because this looks absolutely amazing and it looks like you guys deserve money for your amazing work.)

Nah, it'll cost money, but no more than $30 at final release (I believe anything above $30 needs to be AAA). It'll be a lot cheaper during the Kickstarter campaign as well (in a week or two!). :)

Oh kick starter eh? I will look into that. Also will this project need to fund on kick starter to be finished?

Yes and no. Yes if we want the project to end up what we want, no if we just make a project with bare bones (relatively).
