Sounds great, like Virtual Villagers but with more scope to be creative. Love the idea that you won't be restricted to one island and 40 potion recipes to find. Hope you don't have to accumulate quite so many 'tech' points as VV though. LOL.

Bumping this up out of the depths of the Pond for those fishies that may have missed it the first go-around.

Has anyone tried it yet?

I downloaded this from Grubbygames,com and used the demo time no probs, this game released today by bfg and i get 6mins of trial and it crashes, i then re load and get a further 6 mins before it crashes, ive upgraded my direct x and all other tech stuff and still cant get past 6 mins at a time, i loved vv 1,2,and 3 bought them all, also escape from paradise, so this was the perfect game for me, any suggestions as im getting frustrated.

Bought it from today, so far I am liking it in that it is Virtual Villagers with loads of islands. Not come across any timer either.

Bomber12, I am having the same problem. Tried everything I can think of but still no luck, I have emailed Tech support so hopefully they'll get back to me soon. I can let you know what they say if you like?

Forgot to tell you the best part. Boy and girl enter hut, make emerge with.................wait for it..................... AN INSTANT TODDLER....... no waiting 2 years as in VV. I bet some of you wish you could do (or could have done) that in real life. LOL. So therefore there is no losing a key worker through pregnancy as the mother comes out of the hut and goes straight back to work, got to those women, stiff upper lip and all that.

I'm having the same problem as Bomber12 and bedheadkg, except that I only get about 15 secs of game, and then it shuts down. I'll be getting in touch with support, too.

Hi,

I love this game.

I'm having no tech issues.

You may try temporarily shutting down your security programs that constantly run in the background. Running processes that are running while downloading and installing anything especially games will totally mess up the game.

MAKE SURE TO TURN YOUR SECURITY PROGRAMS BACK ON IMMEDIATELY AFTER DOWNLOADING AND INSTALLING.

Whenever I have a tech issue with a game it is because of running processes that I forget to exit during the process of downloading and installing a game.

Hope this helps.

Peace and Good Will.

I bought the game and have played for 5 hours and had no problems. Then in the last 20 minutes the game has closed on its own 4 times. Usually right after a falling star hits. I do not have anything else open or running on my computer. I even tried to shut down my security system and it still continued to happen. Any suggestions?

msmouser did you exit these running processes while downloading and installing the game? If not remove the game through the Big Fish game console (trash can) and re-install using your purchase history install button and make sure you disable any running processes as in security programs while you download and re-install.

If this doesn't help then you will probably need to get in touch with Big Fish tech support. Big fish support is the best and if there is a technical issue with the game they will submit a new build with the fix applied. I see where a lot of people are having issues with the game.

I hope my idea works for you.

Don't be concerned if it doesn't help because Big Fish technical support will help you indeed.

Happy gaming.

Peace and Well Wishes,

Lovesunrises

PLEASE BE AWARE.

If you do uninstall your game and re-install there is a good chance you will lose all your game progression.

Thanks for the suggestion lovesunrises, I tried disabling all my antivirus and security stuff and then reinstalling but it still didn't work I guess I'll just have to be patient and wait on a reply from tech support! Wouldn't mind but I have this months game credit burning a hole in my virtual pocket!!

Hi folks! This is Ryan Clark; the programmer of My Tribe.

If you're having crash problems, can you tell me what your sound volume is set to? We had an issue in an earlier version of the game where it could crash if your volume was all the way down to zero. Try moving it up a TINY bit, to see if that helps.

We're working on an updated build to solve this, and other problems. Thanks!

Welcome to the Pond, Ryan_Clark. I'm so glad you swam in to address some of the concerns about your game. That totally rocks and say's something about your integrity and the game itself.

I'm so thrilled about "My Tribe"!!! I have all 3 VV games and didn't like some of the little tricks one had to figure out in order to get to a new level within the game. This game is GREAT!!! And I love the fact that the game programmer came on board to see how we were doing with it. Thanks so much Ryan for this great "play." I like it better than VV so far. Like the fact that there are more possible islands, different challenges to the game (and not everyone has the same challenge). Bought it this morning - didn't have any unused credits so bought a credit just for this game. No issues with it I'm thankful to say, but think it is wonderful of Ryan (game programmer) to come on board and give a clue as to fixing it.

Thanks Ryan, Grubby Games, and BFG!!!
