Hope everyone is staying safe out and in there. In the last developer log I went over the new zone/room system that is in development. After some initial feedback and reviewing of the new system I’ve determined that it needs a bit more time in the oven.
That means there won’t be an Experimental branch update available this week. There is, however, a patch update available right now for everyone!
Update 26.1 is a minor patch update to address some various bugs and add a few tweaks and changes. See the release notes below for all the changes and additions.
It’s survey time again. If you have a couple of minutes, please let me know you thoughts about the game.
