    Great news! Are there not any plans for a Steam release though?

    Kind regards,

    Great news! I didn’t realize Christopher Tin did the music- I was going to say how incredibly good the music is and now I know why.

    I’ve noticed that the yellow “too many requests” lines have appeared with far less frequency. Unfortunately I’m still dealing with massive slowdowns by around turn 125 or so, Medium Size, and this is after turning all graphics setting to the lowest, single unit animation, no movement graphic, etc. This slowdown is not as bad as earlier this year but it means I stop playing by around ambition number 9. I also don’t infiltrate territory because revealing more map means more slowdown. I also tried playing on my new Mac (instead of my regular PC) and have the same issue. Is optimizing still happening?

    All the music you've heard thus far is from other performers, Christopher Tin's isn't in yet. But the soundtrack is definitely chosen very well.

    Optimization is still ongoing, tile improvements are a major performance killer so there's a lot of ongoing work on them, and the game has also become better at scaling down if you switch to lower graphics quality. I'm curious what your GPU is?

    Very cool! Hoping the optimization is improved on the full release. My poor Haswell CPU is dying. (But it might just be time to upgrade...)

    As per Leyla Johnson (Mohawk CEO) on the public discord channel, please keep an eye on our announcements over the next few months as we may have news about other distro platforms.

    The tutorial pop ups? They do help explain the mechanics but I still feel a bit lost. Theres so much information on the tooltips I struggle to focus on what I need to know. I was hoping for something a bit more guided. Hopefully someone does a video series on release that can go through it step by step :)

    No Steam, no GOG, no sale.

    I hope the 'early access' release people have been playing the past year counts as the 'one year exclusive period' for Epic.

    We're focused on releasing the game on one platform. As an Indie studio it simplifies the development process. But stay turned to Mohawk's socials after release as we will start announcing what plans there are moving forwards after Epic release.
