muck from an actually sane person

haha that’s funny! I love Muck! A friend and I worked very hard to beat Muck on gamer mode. 

can't find iron ore is it implemented ?, i even check the sea bed :)

I think iron was disabled in this pre-alpha build. But there is a much newer free version on Steam with iron and a lot more content!

I saved while in bed and when I wen tot the menu and back my camera was all messed up...

Hey sorry that happened! That is fixed in newer versions. You can play the new version for free on Steam. 

i think it's been in pre alpha for at least a year, so maybe bring it into alpha?

The game continues on Steam! Multiplayer is coming soon!

I loaded my save but my view angle is 90 degrees in the camera's x which shouldn't happen

should I just uninstall and reinstall to create a new save?

Your save file is located in your %appdata% location. It will be in LocalLow>Broussard>Oldowan. Can you send me your SavedData folder from there? I will be able to see why that happened and fix it for you. You can either send it on Discord or you can email it to admin@broussardboi.com. Do you remember what you were doing when you saved the game? Were you sleeping on a mat or in a boat or something? Trying to think of how that might've happened.

i click play but it doesnt spawn me

Is it stuck in the Menu or on the loading screen?

it says loading then it loads the health bar etc. but i would be still on the menu

Hmmm, that's odd. What version of Windows are you running? Did the game generate a SavedData file? It would be in %appdata% LocalLow>Broussard>Oldowan>SavedData

The gameplay is pretty nice but I can't for the life of me find clay. Where is clay on the island?

Hey there, the clay is mostly located between the two big islands. It's the large reddish brown colored rock looking things in the ground and water.

If you don't find any there, it could possibly be a bug. If you don't find any, you can send me the SavedData file and I can look at your world and fix the issue for you


very nice game!

Thank you!

This is so beautiful game like other ges

Thanks Nishad!
