I get  where you are trying to go with this game, but in my oppinion it isn't time to show it off to the public, beacuse:

1. there is not a real tutorial. (learning the mechanics is confusing  at first and could be made easier by adding a voiced over tutorial explaining everything.)

2. the systemst don't feel good (it is playable, but not fun. keeping a player engaged is such a big part)

Basic mechanics are there, but like i said, in my oppinion it isn't time to show it off to the public. I encourage you to work on this game more, because it has a lot of potential. Before relasing it here or elsewere, testing it in closed alpha would have been a good idea, because players will only remember a bad game and will not check it back out when it has more/better/other content and is actually worth buying and playing.

Thanks for your reply.

1) Yes there is no tutorial. The idea was just to show off the actual process of development. I added the text to underline thats not a real game yet and more for people who want to look for the progress of the game.

2) the system feels bad right now because they are not realy connected right now. They all working for its own but nothing more. For example the weather is right now only visual but later on there is the plan to connect it to the player stats for a bit of survival.  

Also are there only some quest with out a real story.
