A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
An open-ended survival and resource management game with no combat elements, focused on raising a family. The game takes place in 1200 CE Eastern Finland, in a region called Savo.
CURRENTLY AT BETA STAGE: MOST OF THE GAME CONTENT IS READY, THERE ARE SOME BUGS, THE UI IS PARTIALLY UNFINISHED. WORK IN PROGRESS.
STABLE RELEASE ESTIMATED AT THE END OF 2023
A young family has decided to establish their home in remote woodlands. They pack a set of essential tools and row up the local waterways deeper into the wilderness. After a few days of rowing they feel that they are far enough to have a peaceful spot of their own. First build a shelter, then a house. Cut down a patch of forest, burn it, sow and harvest. Go fishing and hunting for additional nutrition. Children! More nutrition is needed to keep the little ones fed. And as they grow, there is more workforce.
The time-scale of the game is weeks, so in-game years flow rather smoothly so you can easily see your building projects advancing and your family growing. Although, it won't always be that easy - harsh weather can ruin your crops, accidents can cause injury. No combat - the cold, hunger and accidents being the only enemies. Sustaining your own family is the main goal, so no empire building, no need to manage an ever-increasing village population. But life in the Savonian woods isn't always that easy, most of the time you'll probably find your family low on resources, having to decide how to allocate time. Work long days to get that house finished - and run the increased risk of accidents due to overworking when tired. Or work at lower pace and run the risk of your family suffering from cold when the autumn sets in.
Point-and-click gameplay, the player decides which patch of forest to cut down, when to fish and when to farm, when to visit a market to trade surplus for new tools. Once the kids grow up you can continue playing as your off-spring - either expanding the established farm house, or finding a spouse and rowing further up the waterways to have a fresh start.

Ah, thanks for reporting, sound like a bug!
If this is not too much trouble for you, try this: After a crash there should be an errorlog textfile in your game installation folder. E-mail the errorlog to the address mentioned in the beta version greetings message.
EDIT at 29th of June 2023 : The above mentioned bug is fixed in the current version (beta-21 as of writing this). But, should any new bugs occur, sending the errorlog is still the recommended thing to do.
I've just purchased, and happy to support your efforts, Erkka. This looks quite interesting.
