Hey, I know you, TortugaPower! I've checked your channel a few times before to get some glimpses of gameplay, which was all enjoyable. I'll subscribe for possible updates on DW2 and some of your videos :)
I was checking online for something like this, but it seems that there is no news yet :( I skimmed through all the messages yesterday and noticed that yours, TortugaPower, was posted on 6/10/2018, although yesterday for me was the ninth, haha. I'm half expecting the next post to be from Erik in 2019 saying that the game is ready for release.
I was going to buy Distant Worlds, but it's only for Windows. I guess I'll be getting a PC soon. Erik, if it isn't too difficult, you should put the second game on GOG for some people to download from, including one guy who did not explain why he could not use steam but begged that you do this.
