  1. Waiting so impatiently....but it will be a fantastic start to 2014. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  2. My eyes keep focusing on the gameplay instead of you guys talking...no disrespect intended, but the guilty satisfaction of simply watching the game is too much...

  3. Hey I've been following this game for a while, I'm wondering if you are using flowmaps for your rivers and if so would you be able to make a devlog on how you create them at run time?

  4. Well done Duke,

    wish you all the luck you need to make this game one of those games gamers want to play.

    Meryy christmas and a happy ne year from the Annozone (germany) 🙂

    greets
    Charles

  5. After hearing about the modular approach to the UI I thought I would ask if you had considered or tried to develop having those windows on a second monitor. I play a lot of MMOs and with those modular windows I am always wishing the game would extend a "blank page" as it were that I could just house all those windows on to keep my main screen just the action of the game.

    Just a thought, I'm sure it would be a lot of effort to accomplish.

  6. Merry Xmas!
    Looks like it's coming along nicely.
    Personally, I'd rather play it when it's ready; I'm testing too many other games at the moment and would like to play something that works 😛

  7. Nice video, but he mess up a little bit at the end said the game comes out in early 2004 instead of 2014. Still can't wait to play it.

  8. Whoaaaaa this fantastic game + soundtrack form Tzar: Burden of The Crown will blow my head !!
    I can not wait!

  9. I was wondering -- there's a value for the temperature, but is that Celcius or Fahrenheit? If it's F, could it be set to C, or does is change it's color from blue (cold) to hot (red)? 50F would mean very little to me as a non-US player. 🙂

  10. Looks intresting, I saw this game back on reddit way back when simcity came out and I loved the look then. Cant wait

  11. I definitivly hope than you arent tryng to debug Banished alone cause "Late 2013" will turn easily in Late 2016 even if you are an excellent programmer.
    Anyway...Bon courage to u.

  12. i hope that jun 1st 2014 it will be released as a great happy new years present to us! in return we give you money! lol hope it comes out soon really loveing this game alot!

  13. 20 bucks?? This game could get 50 and people would buy it. This is exactly the kind of game I'm in to. Settlers 10th anniversary and Simcity, I'm really looking forward for it.

  14. At last, a developer talks about adding complexity to the game! It sounds great. I will gladly give you money if you launch the game free of any game-breaking bugs. So take your time. And no early access and no pre-order, you already have my respect sir.

  15. @Axios thanks for the clarification 🙂 I hope it stays as one-man show, away from the radar of big publishers long enough so that we can enjoy once again a quality and non-streamlined city-building sim.

  16. I sure am eager, trying not to get impatient, I had wanted to buy this for myself for Christmas, but I guess Merry Jaunuary-mas will be just as good - although can you imagine the size of our settlements by now if we had begun building December 24th at 11:59 P.M? 😀

  17. @Erdobelli Please. 🙂 I hope the same thing.
    He tell that worked for 10 years in game industry and now he is a one man studio for develop a game (and many others, as stated on reddit) free to decide all by himself.

  18. Damn just saw this video and i swear everytime i see a new video clip this game looks better and better?

    I have a bad feeling im going to get hooked on this for a while lol.

  19. Martijn raises a good point. as a Canadian I prefer to use C when it comes to temperature.

    it's too bad there's no research tree I was looking forward to upgrading my roads, building bikes, horse carriages, or even cars.

  20. Hi guy,

    First happy new year, i wish you the best for you and your game, i follow your adventure this september and i would like to know if you know more about a release date?
    I think it should come to the end now.

    Thank for anwser

  21. Really can't wait for this game, itching to buy and play. As a web developer sometimes it good to take a break and this game is perfect - plus I love building games but have felt let down by recent games.

    Hope it's released soon.

    Happy new year all.

  22. Cant wait for this game. I hope its released before I leave in the Peace corp on April 3rd!

  23. School is starting mid-Jan. I really hope I'll be able to play before it beggins. The game seems really awesome and well done. Congrats.

  24. Plz make this game for mac!! i have been waiting since May 2013!!! and i can't wait anymore lol, i really hope the game will come out for mac sometime soon though :L 😀

  25. Very excited for the release of this game! Definitely buying it, already got it on my Steam wishlist 😀

  26. Hi Duke, next time you do an interview, please make sure that the microphone setup is either better quality or better configurated. As it was, it was at times hard to understand for me as a non-English speaker. The background noise was very disturbing.
