You did an amazing job, the music is great! (Well, except the looping combat music… that one gets on my nerves.)
I wonder if there are any plans on releasing the soundtracks as a separate download now that things are “finished”.
As for the 1.0 news…
I’m rather disappointed, but at the same time I can understand it… it’s been 5 years now and development can’t go on forever. Sad to see so much potential yet to be harnessed going down the drain like this.
Crowd funding and early access is always a gamble. Though I can’t say I lost this one because I spent countless hours on this game and enjoyed it for the most part. Still it leaves a sour taste in my mouth because I can’t really say I won either. The way “endgame” is handled, the direction TR took with that one just isn’t my cup of tea, but I can’t really blame them for this. In the end we’ve got a city builder that tells us to abandon ship over and over again. Now it is up to the modders to release a mod that unlocks all content in the same game (all banners, fountains, and hearths, and the corresponding recipes).
Stonehearth will remain in my heart(h) for long while. It was a project I adored and followed closely. I tried to add my voice to the soup of voices, to add my ideas and some of them even got heard. I like influencing things, even small things, so the time I’ve spent lurking around here managed to tickle my fancy in a good way. If only it didn’t have to end here…
Best of luck for the future to everyone in the team!
