I fully agree the resolution settings should appear at least once, and you should be told how to access them later.
(programmers have been notified about this, afaik.)

I actually kinda missed the KoDP old screens artistry, but understand that the new one is a helluva lot more functional.

Beat Six Ages yesterday though! I won't say anything yet for the sake of spoilers, but it took some doing my first run-through was a starvation simulator as I didn't really know how to take care of my tribe. The second time around was scarcely better, with by end game only being able to field about 200 herd, so I had to restart.

Never did really kick the starvation issue on the third run. There was a few times I wanted to send people out to explore the valley, and ended up having to focus on food just to keep everyone alive. Still enjoyed it though! I'm hoping through my next playthroughs I can finally see all that is being offered through exploration.

If there was one thing really motivating me to get Win10, it's this game :I I loved watching it through development before release.

Total aside but I really love being on the Kitfox discord too--very wholesome server, gem amongst many.

If you're looking to upgrade to 10 (for free) they'll still let you apparently:
https://www.zdnet.com/article/heres-how-you-can-still-get-a-free-windows-10-upgrade/

 I followed these instructions after E3 when I wanted to try their gamepass for PC and didn't have any issues personally.

I'm looking forward to giving this a spin! I purchased it on release, but have been busy with Disco Elysium so I haven't had a chance to play it yet.
Sounds like the playtime is much shorter and focused which I think for me is a good thing as admittedly I've never actually beat KoDP  :-[

Huh, hadn't noticed that this only works on windows 10. Pity. Guess I'll have to wait until whenever I get a new computer for it. I don't really have any interest in dealing with Windows 10 right now.

Welp. Guess I won't be buying it for a while then.

Although I am curious what in development forced it to be Win 10 only.

Wow, that is an incredibly garbage restriction. Guess I won't be playing this either.

Yo Tiruin! Been a while. ^.^

Hopefully as time goes on, they might find a way to port it to PCs other than those that Windows 10. KoDP still holds my heart, but this installment feels like the first step into a much larger story, and in that respect, I'm really excited to see what direction the developer's plan on going.

It is.

There are at least 3 chapters, this is first one.

There are six, each in a different age. Hence the name.

Yup, we've been working on the second game for a while now. :)

Seconded, unfortunately. It's barely advertised and Six Ages was the second game I've ever refunded on Steam.

Hey, I'm not that out of the loop. : P

What I meant to say is, Ride Like the Wind strikes me as a part of the story told at a time when the world still makes sense. I'm eager to see what happens when the world stops making sense.
