A brief disclaimer about ShiftOS

We at ShiftOS are in no way a professional game development studio. We just do this for fun and as a hobby.

While we do accept bug reports and attempt to fix them as soon as possible, and while we do enjoy developing the game, development may slow down due to us being busy with our lives.

So, if you see that we aren't making any releases or videos, please be patient with us.

ShiftOS - Rolling Release Edition

Using the power of AppVeyor, we are able to give you precompiled versions of the latest source code - containing the most bleeding edge features and bugfixes, without the complication of having to compile the game yourself.

All you have to do is go to our AppVeyor page, and go to Artifacts. There, you will see the most recent successful build with download links containing various different parts of the game.

Pay attention to the build status though! If it is "Build passing", you are downloading the most recent version of the code. If it does not, AppVeyor is either still compiling the game, or it has failed, and until the issue is resolved you'll be on a slightly older version of the game.

The AppVeyor build status is shown at the top of every page.

Source code

ShiftOS is open-source software - which means our code is fully available for you to see, use, modify and distribute (as long as you abide by the software license and terms of service, of course).

If you know C# and can compile Visual Studio projects, then go ahead and head over to our GitHub repository! We'll see you there!
