Okay, so.

This game is great, it executes building from the ground up really well. but after 3 hours you kinda already crafted everything, tried everything, went everywhere.. and that is a problem

There are also a few bugs littered around the place, like

Being able to "fly" up by standing on a box with a full inventory and picking up the box

Bricks not being an entity when they leave a furnace ?

The auto-collector getting stuck in the ground when trying to mine tree's or rocks on the edge of the island

The house on the second island in the overworld being extremely messy and just bugged 50% of the saves you make

Being able to access your inventory when in the menu

The achievements not appearing correctly

You are influenced by the gravity of a small island even when standing next to it on a platform 

Boosting into the sky when aiming yourself up on a tree correctly, ( velocity building up? )

When you go too far out or stand on a moving island for too long, the game freezes and you have to re-open it

You can sometimes bug through walls when they are next to eachother, this sometimes leads to death

Floating apples ???

And now for a few fixes..

I was able to get the best pickaxe in the game in 4 minutes, due to the crystals basically spawning next to you

The auto-miner should most likely get an Auto-sorter of some kind, or like a docking station for it to dispose it's contents

The grass clogging up on your island is also a pretty big issue, as you (as far as I'm aware) can't incinerate it nor throw it away

Sometimes I was not sure when a furnace was fueled, there should be an indicator for that

There should be way more end-game, and most likely a goal.

The second dimension has almost no use for most people, apart from littering place, maybe add something neat there

More automation would be cool, as of right now the best automation you can get are autosmelters, box collectors and the stupid auto-miner

Overall this game gets a fat 7/10, but there are always things to fix

I'm also really hoping that the difficulty curve is made harder.

Thanks for the feedback! It's greately appreciated. Development is currently paused for this game as I am working on Redmatch. I'm not sure if I'll end up updating this game, since it's been 6 months or so now since I started it, and I have learned a lot since then (Including multiplayer networking). I'm planning on releasing a second version of the game rebuilt from the ground up with better systems which make development easier. Because I started it so long ago, most of the code is a complete mess prone to many bugs and ultimately unusable to create anything new. In the next version of Adrift, I hope to map out a plot and purpose before starting development, as well as building all the systems early on based on a chosen end goal of what the game should be. My idea of Adrift changed many times during development, and it truly was an amazing and engaging learning experience. Thank you so much for the long list of bugs! Some of them I've known for a while, some I have tried to fix but failed, and some I had no idea about. I hope you enjoyed the experience so far. The remake of Adrift will hopefully come out sometime in 2019-2020.

That is good to know! I'll be sure to check when it comes out.

:ok_hand:

Found some save issues. 1) the noise of the conveyor belts is stacked and obnoxious until they are reset. May just be my headphones. 2) Incinerators & doors get flipped sideways...

I saw a youtube video on this, and i believe i saw it on the Blackthornprod discord server. looking forward to playing it!

Edit: I have now played it, It's a quaint game, and it's a really nice experience. I do enjoy the crates and multiple island. I have some suggestions, however: A harder difficulty curve i.e you should not be able to immediately get to the top tier pickaxe. However, i am very excited for the future of this game nonetheless.

One more thing, and i swear i'll be done. For the collisions, try making the player a fairly detailed system but have the items have just a square of something like that for the collider.

im on linux plz tell me how to install it

Since I don't have access to a Mac or Linux computer, I'm unable to solve operating system related bugs, or assist with download isntructions. Sorry :(

Can you open "boxes"? I would think they would be a storage kind of thing but I can't figure out how to open them if they are. Or are they just a kind of block for building with? It would be really nice to have a way to store items instead of just throwing them all over the ground or in a pit made out of walls and a door. Also a suggestion: add a way to vertically transport items and maybe a hopper.

Thanks for the feedback! Boxes are only a structure (for building). I've been planning on adding a storage solution for a while now, and have just never gotten around to it :/

You can transfer items vertically using a conveyer belt angled upwards for going up and a tube of ice (or walls, but they have more friction and stuff can get stuck) for items going down.

This game is absolutely epic! I absolutely love the low-poly graphics style! Keep up the good work! I'd really like to see this game on Steam! I'd change the model of the pickaxe though, It's so t h i c c it looks kind uncomfortable XD

Oh man, I haven't played that much yet but this game looks SUPER promising. Just needs a little more content. I hope you bring multiplayer and bring this to Steam someday! I'd totally buy it.

I would love to add multiplayer to this and have already attempted to. The problem is I am extremely inexperienced with multiplayer (and since I started building this game a year ago and just recently came back to it, the code is very messy). I might rebuild Adrift from the ground up with multiplayer as the core feature eventually!

How do you use the furnace ?  PLZ RESPOND SOMEONE PLZ!!!

The front of the furnace has a small emblem. This is the entrance, where fuel and items to be smelted will go in. First throw wood into the front of the furnace as fuel, and then put in the ores you would like to smelt. Ores take 10 seconds to smelt, and will come out the other end. You can also smelt mud to make bricks (which are kind of useless).

Wow, great idea for the main mechanic :D
This game looks really cool!

Thanks!

Just finished playing your game, it looks really promising! I like the concept of two worlds and flying islands. I managed to do all in it except for couple of achivements that I think is not possible to get yet :)
There is a lot of bugs as usual for prototypes. But I'll be following to see updates, keep up the good work!My cool house xDAlso that thing looks cool

Thanks a ton for playing my game! I will try to update it as regularly as possible, which is usually on the weekends because of school. Thanks for the feedback!

Also: all achievements should be possible :P Noone has found the flower yet tho!

I found the flower

Was the flower on one of the small flying islands? That's the only place I've not visited xD

no ;)
