I just bought this game and both expansions (a steepish price for an indie it was too), and while the concept looks great, the first impression and general presentation quality so far is not. Specifically, and encountered immediately in a cursory playtest:

a) Sliders (and other UI elements) are almost unusable, presumably due to this unfixed and now multiple-update old bug. It has been reported several times, with no action beyond "forwarded to the devs".
Where is the dev commentary? What's the timeline here, and what release is the fix tagged for?

b) Performance generally blows, and the game is full of the infamous Unity GC stutter - particularly when panning the map.
Having played (aka suffered through) several other unity titles, I am no stranger to this problem... I'm also not going to accept "unity problem, wontfix", as there are by now well understood means to mitigate the issue.
Fixing this may entail rewriting various methods to reduce garbage production, but that's just the price of a game that doesn't run like crap and feel like an unoptimised pre-release.

So, here's my dilemma: Are either of these going to be fixed in a reasonable timeframe (particularly the cursor tracking), or am I just going to use my refund window and play something that's not built on Unity3D?
The clock is ticking, and I'm not so invested in this game that I couldn't just walk away now. Walk away is exactly what I'm going to do though, if there's going to be no real support for the GNU/Linux build and bugs as infuriating as the one I linked above are to be ignored for multiple updates.

I await, with bated breath, your assurance that this is a game where bugs and performance problems actually get fixed (again, experience concerning unity-based titles), and your encouragement to stick with it, as surely I'll only have to deal with broken mouse input a little longer... Surely.
