Game kept running turns w/o letting me do anything until i died

I don't know Not sure how re-creatable this is, but I was camped for the night, boiling water, crafting etc. I'd threatened away a weak looter and when I ended my turn, the game kept ending turns never giving me control back. So I basically watched myself go for a couple days until I died of dehydration without ever getting control back.

Hm, there was a similar bug a week or so ago. If the player took painkillers and/or whiskey, it would cause weirdness with the health and pain gauges, essentially draining the pain gauge below zero and forcing the player unconscious forever.

I think that bug's been fixed, but maybe there's a similar one still out there. Do you remember if any of your status gauges were really low? Or if you used any specific items before ending the turn?

I've been having this bug too. Yet I can't seem to find an exact reason for it. It just seems to happen at random.

Hm, okay, I'll have to keep an eye out for this one, then. If anyone notices a sure-fire way to trigger the bug, let me know!

I had it briefly, but found that quitting and reloading makes a fix.

Yeah, I should've mentioned that, too. As a work-around, you can escape to pause the turns, and then save+quit and reload to get back to normal.

Alternately, closing the app entirely before you die will work, and you can restore the game from your last save point.

It's worth mentioning that the problem occurs in the demo as week. As of now, it is my chief method of demise. Not sure if it is significant, but the last couple of times I noted the survival times were at 5 days and then 7 days.

Yeah, it's a bug in both the demo and beta, unfortunately. And the 5/7 day survival is related, but not the direct cause. Probably, your game has built up enough NPCs after several days that one of their battles triggers the bug.

I think I've got the fix working in my test build, and I'm hoping to get it uploaded soon!

I've died several times from this as well, can't seem to figure out what triggers it though. Thanks for mentioning the possible workarounds, I'll try that next time.
