Its been 6 months already, without anything.. not even a message update of any kind...

Really Disappointed with this, .. I Glad i didn't buy it .. Shame ...

I'm myself very sorry about this, I still want to update the pack as soon as possible but I'm working hard on my game Lunark which has to be my absolute priority because I have to deliver after the Kickstarter campaign. Solo dev is hard, but that's OK, dealing with frustrations is part of the job and I can only blame myself for that situation. Sorry again.

REALLY Interested in this, Any chance u telling us what u have planned for the updates.?

Basically, im after the 'Player' with a gun/guns .. if u can guarantee this will be added, ill buy! :)

Thank you for your interest! I don't have a precise roadmap but I know that I will add (at least) a sci-fi tileset and a dedicated music. Otherwise I'm gonna collect feedback like yours and probably go with what people need the most or what I'm more comfortable with. Anyway, stay tuned! :)

Cheers, Ill keep checking back..!
