Happy Friday everyone! Cambo here.

July is coming to an end and we have some good news and some not so good news. I’ll start with the good news. We are play testing for the next update and will release it in roughly one week. The not so good news is that we’ve upped the game saves again and your previous saves will not work with the new update. This is due to some necessary tweaks to our biome system. You can tweet your rage to @camfergusondfw

Here’s a quick breakdown on what you can expect in the Alpha 0.8.6 patch.

  • Placement snapping
  • Specialized Containers
  • Equippable Helmets
  • Adult bear ram
  • Pet system improvements
  • AI Improvements
  • Dyes can be crafted and combined with clay to make colored clay brick voxels

What else is in the works? The crafting journal is coming along but it will not make this update. Lots of engine tech and R&D involved. In addition, the art style update is still on-going and keeping our art team slammed. We are also in the process of moving to a new studio location soon too. A new battleground for nerf wars!

We are ramping up and hiring full-time game programmer positions in the Dallas area.

Cheers!
