Playing this now. First impressions are really good. IAP is more for some items and speeding up time for construction and farming and stuff. Looks like there's going to be a one time VIP IAP but I haven't figured out how to activate it. All in all it looks promising, it's got tha t Animal Crossing vibe, definitely scratches a long time itch.

That's because the U.S. hasn't invaded Canada yet.

The game isn't loading for me anymore. It keeps getting stuck halfway through the loading bar. I already reinstalled, but it makes no difference. Guess I'll wait for the worldwide release. I'm not a huge fan of betas anyway.

So far it was mostly what I hoped it would be.

Could you get more into detail with your plans for the VIP option? I find this to be quite an interesting monetization scheme. And if you'll price it reasonably I'm definitely in.
As far as I understood this is gonna be a monthly subscription? Any plans for the pricing yet?
What features are included apart from the bigger house an unbrekable tools?

From the current state of the game I guess worldwide release will probably be in Q2 2014. Is that realistic?
