We will release the Alpha early this coming week!

There's been a small delay as I've been sick until 2 days ago, so couldn't get everything ready to get it finished this week.

All good now, AFAIK wasn't covid smile

I can't seem to research how to build a police station.

Edit: I think I should build a fire station first. haha..

@hopvscape Are you just scavenging for water, or did you build any renewable sources for it yet?

@druth8x You just can't find them? If so, they're under social tab -> public jobs

okay this is a huge improvement.I have a few suggestions though.

So the tasks which we do, are great so we have a way to go forward, But i get stuck with a couple of things where i feel i do not know now how to go about it. And then you sort of get frustrated as to what to do.

-->For example when i have to make a hospital i see what all things i need. But maybe for starters you can show what all things you need to do to even create a hospital, 

had similar experience with a couple of more things.

Also an earthquake occurred, which i had no idea off, so maybe hints for these things at start like there are natural calamities that might occur and what you can do to get over this.

Just had these two, Rest.i am enjoying grin

I´m having fun playing the game but I encountered some serious bugs...

I couldn´t build anything even though I had all resources needed. After destroying mining plant I sudenly could build anything I had resources for. Another critical bug showed after that though -> when I tried to move between WORLD and SOCIAL the same has been showed (the building menu) therefore I couldn´t do anything and had to restart the game...

It´s fun to play the game though...

Is there any way how to report bugs? The option on the website allows only a survey.

Another critical bug that happened to me was during TV trading. The amount of gold shown just freezed and I could buy the whole map for free... the amount of gold has not changed... it was 4.67M.

@vegeta We added some test tutorialization/hints, that help guide you through most objectives now with subtle visual hints. We've discovered some clear sticking points with analytics and hopefully this change alone will help guide the player much better.

We will still look into additional improvements - right now we're thinking of some changes to the core gameplay loop to be more fitting for majority of the players - in general likely make the basic gameplay far less taxing/impossible to "mess up" (we can also add a difficulty setting/Unlock later on for those who like a challenge). Basically just make it more "casual" smile

@eaglers We'll be focusing on getting rid of such bugs this week. Alpha's been largely a run to get main big features implemented and prepare the game for more marketing exposure, so we had to skip on some of the core issues/bugs up till now.

Best way to contact is on our discord link you can find in game menu, but you can also send an email to info@gamex-studio.si

And maybe your save file as well while at it?

Current status of translations... who will be first? LOL



If you'd like to help translating or checking translations the game you can do so here (every bit helps!): https://www.localizor.com/simpocalypse

* Please don't rush the translations, I just found it entertaining to add some friendly competition for fun grin

It appears that Spanish and Polish translations are basically already finished (the progress doesn't appear as finished, as only new suggestions are accounted there, but it appears that many of google suggested translations were simply upvoted/confirmed by translators).

Awesome stuff and thank you!


Note: This doesn't mean additional check/approval of existing translation of are pointless now - ideally we'd still want at least 2-3 users to go over translations/approve them to ensure better quality.

I will probably be finished with most of the German translation by tomorrow as well. There are still a couple of context requests pending so those haven't been translated yet, but overall we are looking pretty good here as well.

Great news freak, thanks for taking the time smile

I was hoping to go through the rest of context requests and create a discord group today, but had to urgently get our Demo build ready for review for Steam.

Cool feeling getting this on Steam:



Now just hoping Steam reviews it in time for the Steam Demo Festival on 7th!

We've got our demo prepared for steam - we'll still be pushing additional improvements over the next few days, but the game is quite ready/polished already smile

The demo goes public on Wednesday, but we'd appreciate a few more tests beforehand.

If anyone wants to give it a try, please use one of the below codes - just reply here, so I know it was taken already. If more people will need it, I can add more as well smile

W2XGY-09W2F-JWKKH
WV2MD-JK28G-KACYA
9PJFL-GJXVT-MITZ0

The demo works on Windows and linux for now, (game is ready for Mac as well, but just waiting on approval from apple)

Download Steam & register here - if you're not a member yet, you should register and wishlist Simpocalypse anyway smile

We just published Store translations for the following languages (as we're pretty much certain we'll have game translations for them by November): Italian, German, Spanish & Korean!

We hope to add at least Polish, Dutch and Chinese in the following weeks. Adding languages greatly helps increase not only target audience of the game, but also conversions to vists, wishlists and eventually sales.

So if you speak any other languages you can help us greatly by helping translate to additional languages here: https://www.localizor.com/

Even a few lines translated/checked helps in the big picture smile

I will provide a more in-depth release plan this week, as some things have been changed in the release schedule to vastly increase potential of the game. We're also talking with some potential publishers to help us expand the reach of the game further.

Hey @slosumo I have translated most of the missing German translation now, I am so glad it was so much work cwy. There are however still a few keys that are left that I need context on and some that I don't understand. I have made a list, so that you won't have to translate the other ones that are still outstanding but not on the list:

btn_build
dev_panel_text0
dev_panel_text11
dev_panel_text6
disable_leader => still doesn’t make sense. Why does it say disable when the user has to drag the corpus on the battlefield first?…
dom_refresh_text4
event_details_text1
event_details_text3
event_market_crash_action_required => no text  to translate
explore_results
grid_invade
milestone_happiness => in terms of luck or satisfaction?
new_order
obj_1_2_desc => how should I  translate research 
obj_4_2_hint => same as obj_1_2_desc
obj_group_1_title
obj_group_5_tip => no text to translate 
quick_assign_food => how should I translate scavenging? In terms of steering or collecting?
randomize_squadrons
res_5_extra_desc2 => can’t really translate unlock and provide so that it makes proper grammatical sense. Could I leave 'provides'? Or do you have a suggestion how I could reframe the sentence?
res_water_sources_desc => what does ‘streak’ stand for?
setting_hide_buy_territory_prompt_desc
etting_hide_research_buy_hint
setting_show_bottom_ui_desc => I know what a UI is but I am not sure what a bottom UI is? The database layer?…
setting_show_tutorials_desc
show_tooltip_text11

to_battle

It's possible that I won't be online much next week as I need to take a break from everything right now, but I will keep checking here and in Localizer and will translate the rest once you have given me the rest of the context.
