I watched a few bits of that 17 minute demo... looks like the majority of the game is chopping down trees? I heard a lot of "chop chop chop chop chop" sounds in the background at the 3 different spots I skipped to in the demo.

So, am I the only one that encountered something that looked like a bat in a tree, about a few yards away from my starting point?
It looks like the game already have enemies, though very rarely. I only saw the thing once, and it scared me since I had the volume pretty high.

And this may be kind of a silly question, but how do you gain levels?

Lol, alright. And yeah, I'm trying to figure that out, too.

Lots of stuff, I need to learn.

From what I've discovered, you select your seed and tap the ground.

No. I encountered a few as well - all sitting in trees. They are active at night. I've reduced their numbers so that none are in trees in the vicinity of my homestead with my trusty flint spear. Also, a good source of materials

You do not gain levels. Rather, you improve your tools and upgrade your existing work-benches to allow you to harvest, mine, etc quicker, and craft more sophisticated items.

Thoroughly absorbing so far.

Chests?

Loving this game but can't for the life of me figure out how to make a chest and I am in desperate need.

I have already circumnavigated the world, without a boat. I did it my mistake and it took forever!

Can someone help with the chests? This is really hampering my progress. I have Craft Bench level 2 and don't have an upgrade option on this bench.

And how do you ride a donkey?

Thanks!

Minecraft sold well... ok that doesn't count but JunkJack I think has done really well. Same for Eden World Builder (it always seems to be in the top 100 of all games and other than dropping free for 2 days Last January, it's pretty much always been $0.99). I think there's room for another paid app with a free version on the side.

Anyway, this game is pretty cool. I may post back after my kids and I put some time in it together. I don't think it'll replace JunkJack or Minecraft PE (or Minecraft PC) but it could be something else to play.
