They're roughly 40k away (90 minutes left) from their 1,000,000 stretch goal of getting NPC schedules similar to Ultima 7 (day/night/weather system that npcs react to).
They're livestreaming the pre-alpha here.
If the game is of interest to you, and you know you will buy it anyway, it may be prudent to get it now as the money will be directed to improving your overall experience when it's released later this year (in addition to picking up a cheaper copy).
Due to frequent travel in my youth, English isn't something I consider my primary language (and thus I obtained quirky ways of writing). German and French were always easier for me despite my family being U.S. citizens for over a century. Spanish I learned as a requirement in school, Japanese and Korean I acquired for my youthful desire of anime and gaming (and also work now). I only debate in English to help me work with it (and limit things). In addition, I'm not smart enough to remain fluent in everything and typically need exposure to get in the groove of things again if I haven't heard it in a while. If you understand Mandarin, I know a little, but it has actually been a challenge and could use some help.
Also, I thoroughly enjoy debates and have accounts on over a dozen sites for this. If you wish to engage in such, please put effort in a post and provide sources -- I will then do the same with what I already wrote (if I didn't) as well as with my responses to your own. Expanding my information on a subject makes my stance either change or strengthen the next time I speak of it or write a thesis. Allow me to thank you sincerely for your time.
