Great! Could use a tutorial to help get started, but other than that great features! For anyone with problems not seeing their mouse, try to navigate your way to the options, and select windowed mode, this will make your mouse visible. I was easily able to do this as I have a touch screen.
I've been watching this project for some years and it is coming along nicely. I haven't had time to check it lately, but now I noticed they are beginning an Android port. I can't wait to see how that works out. I'll be keeping an eye on that now, as well.
Doesnt work properly with my macbook pro retina 15" nVidia. The cursor of the mouse is somewhere and something else gets selected on the screen. So cant do anything once the game starts. To quit it, I had to restart the computer as the game dint even allow me to switch between programs or press Cmd+Q. The game does look promising on windows.
I have a problem to load
My kind of a game..very promising but needs work!
