Como ago para poder jugarlo??, lo descomprimo y nada, donde se debe guardar la carpeta o que archivo es el que se utiliza para arrancar el juego?, Exelente juego espero con ansias poder jugarlo

Supermalparit said...

Debes descomprimirlo y ejecutar el fichero towns.cmd.

Como bien pone en la sección de descargas, tienes que tener Java instalado para que te funcione. Desde la propia sección puedes descargarlo.

Un saludo!

Suerte para nosotros!

I must say this was the first time i actually played the game! up until now i just launched it so see if my graphics fits, and i must say i enjoyed my time with it, which is a very big achievement for a game so early in it's development phase.

may we all keep killing our citizens in many more creative and fun ways in the future releases!

Loving the improvements! I just wish equipment didn't get destroyed when the person wearing it is killed.

Alexander Poysky said...

The equipment flaw is being worked on!

Hola!! Haber, creo que he encontrado un bug, ya que al intentar hacer un puente y colocarlo me dice que la albañineria no esta accesible, cuando en realidad si porque e probado hasta haciendo una solo sin nada alrededor y no me deje, sin embargo escaleras si que deja. Eso era para que lo miréis si es solo a mi o es un pequeño fallito! Enhorabuena por el juego que tiene muy buena pinta!!

Creo que hay que cerciorarse de que el puente esta siendo construido en el MISMO lado del rio que donde estas :P

oye como puedo tener mas aldeanos? construyo muchas habitaciones y todo en el pueblo funciona bien. Pero como creo ciudadanos?

Alexander Poysky said...

Hay que tenerles contentos, de momento, si no curran, y tienen sillas y mesas y tal en sus habitaciones, seran mas felices
