v1.4 is out!


Hi everyone!

So I've been working hard on the game for the past months and 1.4 is out! This means a few things:

- The price has gone up to $5 to reflect the current content and the Steam price

- The game is now also available on Steam! I promised to upload Steam keys, but we haven't received them yet from Valve, so that will take  some time. I will post an update when this happens.

- The game has changed A LOT, so you might be confused about how to achieve some of the old things!

Do you plan on the game being free upon the full release? It's really sad when you come across a game you like, but have to pay for it. I understand that there are struggles and that game making is hard. I'm just trying to state that some people might want to play it upon the full release, and not have the money to spare purchasing it.

Yeah ikr? Like last time I went to Chipotle they wanted money before they let me have a burrito. I told them some people might really enjoy their burritos but couldn't afford it, but they just told me to gtfo.

lol

No you should be able to update it. Where are you having problems?

Nothing? i don't know i think some reason itch or something thing not reconizing i have bought the game before because some reason i can't download the game and only shows buy game. i think i figure out how to fix it going to try it.

ok i found out my itch app was so i guess that one reason it wasn't updating or can't donwload it?

if you're still having an issue please contact the itch.io helpdesk!

Nice! I will revisit simmiland then. Last time i played i did everythingthat was available to do, don't recall which version it was but has been a long time.

I enjoyed this game for a while and now that 1.4 update is out I have been playing it quite a lot lately.

I look forward to see what else comes in the future.
