A free-roaming squad based RPG. Focusing on open-ended gameplay features rather than a linear story. Be a trader, a thief, a rebel, a mercenary, a business owner, a doctor, a bandit... the list goes on. Aid or oppose the various factions in the world while striving for the strength and wealth necessary to simply survive in the harsh desert. Purchase and upgrade your own buildings to use as safe fortified havens when things go bad, or use them to start up a business. Train your men up from puny victims to master warriors. Carry your wounded squad mates to safety and get them all home alive.
I've finally got round to kickstarting Kenshi. Please help out if only by facebook-liking the campaign page. There's some cool rewards to be had by donating.

In other news, I'm still working on adding constructable buildings to the game, and I estimate about 2 weeks for the first update. Buildings can now be added and removed by a character, including all the underlying technical stuff like updating the pathfinding system and loading/saving. Now I'm taking care of all the little things like building material consumption, interior furnishing, placement varification.
The plan is that I will make the first update quite quickly. This means you will be able to build a building, but not do much with it at first. The features that will be added in the first series of updates, in approximate order are:
- Place storage containers.
- Place beds, where you can rest an heal quicker
- Add doors to keep enemies out
- Mining for resources
- Defensive upgrades and turrets
- Add ladders, so you can use multiple floors
