Well, here's my answer for Albin's questions from a player's point of view.

Belive me, world map would make game less fun. Getting lost and memorizing area around your settlement are very funny parts of the game :) It's almost like in a real life - you can get lost in the forest too, even with map of earth. Sometimes also you need to run from aggresive player, so knowledge about your neighbourhood becomes handy. Besides, there's skill "Cartography" which lets you to draw own map of some area around you. Moreover, even without world map discovering new areas is fun! You never know what will you find.

Few words about world size: to travel from east edge of the world to west, or from north to south for average developed character you need usually at least all day. I remember once when i was moving from my settlement to my friend far far away. It took me 2 days to travel about 1/3 of world's length (of course i've had some luggage which slowed me down). However I didn't knew about other, faster means of transport back then. With well developed character (with enough stamina to swim across rivers, strong enough to kill a boar so you could easly get food or defend from wild animals and equipped with some water) and without any luggage it's of course much faster, like few hours.

We finally made the trailer that was required for participation in SGA, and it turned out quite well, if I may say so myself.

Check it out here: <>

The reason you cannot figure out how to fight is probably because you have not learned the prerequisite skills. :)

You can peruse the automatically generated version of our skill tree that I have put at <> to figure out how to learn how to fight.

I see, exploring can be fun where there's something to be seen, like finding a farm someone has built is pretty cool.

Yes, a tutorial quest would be great for new players, because it's far from self explanatory, especially how to fight, which i still haven't figured out how to do.

Anyway, it seems to work great.
Keep up the good work :).
