Also most of us paid 30 pounds for that price they should be coming out every WEEK! I know people are gonna hate me for this but I think they need to try harder and really think how much we all paid for an alpha! The last thing is he rarely posts on the forum about what is happening.
Besides all this I really love the game!
So now you think they should A) make updates more frequently B) write a daily report about what they are doing? That's more work in less time. You know, why don't you give it a shot yourself? Try build your own version of this game idea and see how you do.
Really, they're working hard and are delivering as they promised when you bought.
Now what you should really understand is that what you get in the updates is just FINISHED content. Stop saying the updates aren't that big, dig around in the data files, there is a big chunk of content to be found that is not yet implemented, but certainly in development. And then still, combining the finished content and the content you can find in the data files, you won't be able to say anything about how much work is delivered because for all you know they have completely changed the code for a key game mechanic in an update.
Can they release an update every two weeks? Sure. Can they release an update every week. Maybe. But it would slow progress down (making a stable, release worthy build can take a fair bit of time) and really, if you think the updates aren't big right now, releasing more often will only make the updates smaller.
Yes you paid 30 pounds. Congratulations, in my eyes, you made a good deal and supported a great project. But you chose to do that on promises that are being met. I don't think I have paid much for an alpha. Why should an alpha be cheaper then a finished game? If anything, you might reason it should be more expensive cause you get more play time and might even get to play with features that get taken out of the finished game.
Contact a painter. Ask him if a ordering a new painting is cheaper then buying one he already finished. Wanna put a bet on it?
