I have been playing this game my whole weekend! And it is amazing! I just want to know when is the final release date of the complete game more or less? I really cant wait for the entire game!

Just be glad we get to experience the birth of such a great game :3

I know the exact release date thanks to my vast experience with modding: when it's done.

Any other predetermined release date just forces you to rush things or be late.

I'll quote a good line from another indie dev team, which is in my opinion the best stance you can have about ETAs : "No ETAs. You'll get it when it's ready."

Some people may get angry, but not as much as if you cannot stick to a deadline you could not properly estimate.

Squee! So excited. I can't wait for March. Or the Ruins. Or the complete game. Or detonating my brother's head by forcing him to come up with a plausible explanation for this game and quantum slimes. Like I said before, Squee! Devs, I don't want to rush you and make the game sloppy. Heck, I'm just one person. You won't even listen to me. My opinion doesn't matter. But still. I am waiting in a puddle of anticipation for the game to be finished. Frenzied puddle of anticipation. The quantum slime idea is really creative.

Well, they need 3-4 months to make a big update.
0.5.0 is between 4-30 of March.
Then...0.6.0 should be on July.
0.7.0 on January 2018.
0.8.0 on May 2018.
0.9.0 on September 2018
1.0.0 in December 2018...
This are just a theory by me.

Versions don't work like that.
They don't have to go in order. Devs could already get the game out of Early Access at as early as 0.6.0, or as late as 0.34.0.

You can find more on this here.

Also, we had to wait 7 months for 0.4.0, but that doesn't count since devs added loads of stuff inbetween 0.3.0 and 0.4.0, like 2 new slimes and loads of explorable places, and because slime science wasn't easy to create. An more appropriate estimate would be 4-5 months, btw.

Oh I was really hoping it would be properly released this year. I know these things are massively subject to change, but it's really nice to have a rough ETA on future updates just to get a vague idea of timeframes - for example to say if they are shooting for an "early 2018" release vs a "holiday 2017" release, it's vague, can be moved/changed, but does give a general idea, and let's you know it's not going to be fully released in the next couple of months for instance!
