Progress Update 01/06/2024

It’s a brand new year, and development has been picking up once again to bring along fresh new features and bugfixes. Better yet, our paid employee is now off winter vacation and will be returning to development, meaning you can look forward to a steady pace of development here on.

There’s still a little bit of work to be done fixing the post ECS-refactor issues that arose from the previous update, but once that is done and out of the way, you can look forward to some updates to our game launcher. In addition, we’ve got some hands on the long awaited unlocking mechanic as well.

Here’s to a great start of the year!
