Pre-Alpha Version 0.202

Thanks for all the feedback and bug reports so far! I didn't expect the game to get that many eyes on it to be quite honest, it even showed up one the itch frontpage. So here's a quick patch to iron out some of the quirks that have been discovered. There where no major crash issues reported, but a few softlocks have been fixed. There is also an elusive save game bug that I still need to reproduce. I added a save_log system in order to get to get the bottom of this. If you have issues with missing items after re-launching the game please send me your save_log.txt.

WOOOOOO UPDATE!!! Congrats on the good work!

Hi, I tried this for linux but are not able to startup. exits with:

./ExeLinux: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

I just extracted the gz to a directory do I have to do something else before starting? I'm on Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS

Hm not sure, might be a permission problem. I uploaded another build just now, can you try that? Also maybe try running the Hyperspace Harvest script in the game folder instead of the exe thing. I remember people having the same issue with my other game and over there this did the trick. For reference:

Thanks, the script has brought me a step further. It sets the library path to the base dir of the game. But still when trying to start the following error appears:

./ExeLinux: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I searched for but this seems to be missing and was not coming with the download.

The new download I cannot open at all. It seems that the gz contains another gz that cannot be extracted.

Ok I just did another push, can you check whether that unpacks? Also added a link to that missing file in the script.

Okay, I get it to work now. Your build is fine but on newer ubuntu versions, the libpng12-0 is not available anymore and one has to install it manually. 

For others that face this problem, follow the instructions here:
