any chance you could give us a clue in to what your looking at for alpha 11 [ and will there be one every month or will be lucky enough to get an alpha every 2 weeks soon ;) hehe [ hope so ]

even from the little things from may be a calender where dates have story lines [ i.e ] Christmas time Santa comes to the nick for burglary on Christmas day ? lol may be even snow in the yard [ must have this amount of money / inmates / etc etc by a certain date ?

Updating twice as often would mean less than half as much content in each update. It would also make it more difficult to bug test, and larger features that take a long time to do would be much harder.

One update a month is plenty for a game like this.

The frequency of game updates should stay the same, however I do think we should be given more information on the content of updates as they are being made and stuff like PA tech blog posts etc.

Well I would appreciate it if they didn't wait till the next alpha for bug fixes before they add some more features (maybe a week for alpha bug testing)

I vote both. There is the option for it in Steam to Opt-in beta releases (or not). Why not take advantage of it?

I (like most other people I'm sure) would love to see more updates/frequent updates (both content and information), but I would rather that they work on the game than update us. Getting all that out takes time, and I don't want it to sacrifice from their ability to make the game. Don't forget that this is a small indie studio, and 3 people can only do so much.

Please, do not use "lol" where it shouldn't (or better, do not use it).

Keep it once per month, and no need for frequent updates, as that takes time.

Besides, who doesn't love it when you find out about the new additions on Youtube or the change log?
Waiting in anticipation is half of the fun!

I like one update in a month since devs might put more content in it. But in the other hand I'm not that happy - Alpha 10 took one week longe than intended and it got massive lag and fps drops meaning I barely can play it till alpha 11 and that mean one month w/o PA.

You can always still play alpha 9 if you want. It's perhaps not as spiffy, but at least it doesn't have to be a month without PA.
